What was your first brand-new, store-bought gun, when did you buy ir and how much did you pay? Mine was a Remington 760 in 30-06, bought in 1974 at Value House in Bangor, Maine. I'd picked a lot of potatoes to pay for that bugger.... Think it was $119. Dad had to buy it (strawman?) as I was 16. No deer for me that year, but got one in '77. Still feel like an idiot for selling it... What was yours and do you still have it?? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
