My first purchased weapons as an adult were 4 Chinese made SKS rifles bought at a feed and grain store in New Madrid, Missouri back in 1994. They had them on a pallet next to the checkout counter with the whole kit for the princely sum of 39.95 each.

Four days later I walked through the Memphis airport to baggage checkin with a handtruck carrying them and 3000 rounds of Soviet can ammo, if I remember correctly the extra cost for being overweight exceeded what I paid for the ammo.

Not counting person to person purchases, pawnshop and gun show purchases, the first brand new out of a retail store purchase I made was in November at Bass Pro for a Browning Buckmark Practical .22LR.

First new handgun - S&W mdl 39-2. Spring of 1979. Paid $219.99 + tax.
Sold that POS shortly after getting it. Sold it for what I had in it.

First new revolver - S&W mdl 19-4. October/November 1979.
Paid $247.95+ tax.
Rosewood stocks, RR/WO.
Still have it.

General Firearms Forum

I added a TH/TT after it returned from S&W for the new barrel, and bought a set of Goncalo Alves stocks for it.

I tried to decide for a couple of weeks, whether I wanted the 19-4 for "$250" or buy a Colt Python 4" for $335.00 + tax.
At the time, I couldn't justify the additional $$$ for the Python.

Coulda had a mdl 25-5, or a 27 (don't remember the dash #) for less than $350.00.
A mdl 28 was $265.00.

My first gun was a Glock 19 RTF2 with straight serrations on the slide. It was around $550 otd almost 3 years ago.

1972ish Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief's Special, snub-nosed .38 revolver. Still have it. $100 new from Warshall's Sporting Goods in Seattle (was still a decent city back then before the socialists took over).

Love the classic lines.
