    My dad gave me a bolt action .410 with an adjustable choke, mossberg. Sweet little gun I still use on occasion, plan on handing it down to my first kid. :D

    I used some of my dad guns, but the first gun that was ever mine was a Browning 12 gauge Citori. I got it in December of 1992 (I was 15 years old). I paid $899.99 (owner gave me a $100 off). It took me the whole summer of '92 to save the money working for $4.25 an hour.

    My dad was weird about guns, he said I needed to buy my first gun. I glad I purchased it myself it means a lot more to me. Since than he has purchased at least a dozen guns for me high school grad, college grad, christmas, work bonus, etc.

    I don't use the gun much, but I'll never sale it. It will go to my kids.
