    First was a daisy pump pellet gun of some sort. Can't remember the name. But I piled up the starlings, pigeons, and black birds with it. It wouldn't kill a groundhog tho.


    First firearm was a Marlin model 60. It was a birthday/Christmas present. Wasn't uncommon to go through a brick of ammo in a day. Took a while to earn enough to get another brick of ammo. Didn't get paid for farm chores. Took side jobs to come up with ammo money.
