    My first new gun was an Remington 870, 20 gauge I got when I was around 11. First gun I bought new was a g26. Last new gun I got was a Mossberg 715t. I have never bought a used gun but I wouldn't mind a lite weight framed .357

    My first gun was a new Glock 22c. Had it for a couple months and traded it and a little bit of cash for a Beretta 92 that I still have. Just wasnt a fan of .40 and fell in love with the 92 the first time I shot one.

    My first gun that I bought new in a gun store was an old style, stainless steel Ruger Vaquero in 45 Colt...think it was $350.00-ish. 1999.

    I had about 4 other handguns that were used before that, but the Ruger was the first brand new gun I bought.

    I had several guns, rifles and shotguns already but they were either purchased used or were hand me downs from my grandfather or uncle.

    The first firearm I purchased brand spanking new was my Interarms Walther PPK in .380. I needed a BUG (I was carrying an issued Ruger Security Six) and the PPK fit the bill along with a Bianchi Shoulder Rig.

    Soon after I purchased a brand new S&WM686 which served me well for many years. But the award for the first goes to the PPK.

    On my 18th birthday I purchased a Marlin 39a from dicks sporting goods. I think it was around 450.00, I had been saving for quite a while and always lusted after that rifle. It is still the .22 I reach for when tin cans need killed.

    April 1991. 2 days after my 21st birthday I purchased a new Taurus PT-92 that did not have a decocker. Dead solid reliable and accurate! Wish I still had it and the K-38 model 14 I had at the time.

    Can't remember the exact year but my best friend and I decided to buy a pair of Remington 1100's in the late 70's. We went into Edelman's Sporting Goods in Farmingdale, NY and bought 2 guns, Red Ball waiters, Woolrich jackets, ammo and we were in the duck hunting business on the bays of the south shore of LI. Leslie Edelman had the best sporting goods dealership on the Island back in the day. They are no longer in business but if you recognize the name he is the owner of Kimber today.

    Glock 19 Gen4, March 2012 at $539. I got off to a late start in life with firearms.

    Just picked up my first .22 (Ruger 10-22) not even an hour ago.

    I'd bought and sold several used long guns as a teenager. Legal without any parents signature in those days in my state.

    First new gun that I bought with my own hard earned money, was a S&W model 19 with a 6 inch barrel. Walked into a West Texas hardwire store, paid cash, and walked out the door with the revolver and a cash register receipt. None of those silly background checks either.

    I've still got it and it's had many thousands of rounds of ammo through it. If memory serves me correctly, I paid about 120 bucks for it.
