    H&R .22 cal. 9 shot revolver with 6" barrel.
    Bought it for self defense when I was in college and driving home on weekends.
    Paid $65.00 for it with leather holster. Shot the heck out of it and sold it several years later for $65.00 to a friend. Great gun that always went bang when I pulled the trigger. That gun probably saved my life one night when I was working by myself at a gas station. I had the gun on a shelf under the cash register and three guys came inside the station. They all three pulled out knives and announced that they were going to cut me up and take my money. I pulled that .22 out and said something along the lines of them bringing a knife to a gun fight. The next thing I saw was them running back to their car. I called to police but nothing came of it.

    I got a Nylon 66 to go away to summer camp with in '70 when I was ten. Still have it and have fond memories of taking it on the NYC subways and busses for public school rifle club. HH

    A Daisy of course, now for real guns, mine was a Remington 870Express Magnum 12ga, 3" black sythetic stock, 28" Rem-Choke barrel. After that I bought a Marlin Glenfield Model 60. :supergrin:

    The very first BRAND NEW gun I ever bought was a 9mm Browning High Power for $316 OTD in Jan 1993. It came with 2 Italian 13rd magazines. Wish I still had it.

    :cool:

    Ithaca Lightning x15 = .22 cal semi.
    Bought it in 1981 and still got it. I need a charging handle for it if anybody got ups on that! paid $75.00 bucks for it and now its worth about $50-75 bucks. I didn't get no deal on it and it misfires every three rounds but I still love it. I lent it to my brother in law and he had it in his truck when he died. I got it back after I went and had dinner with his parents. They felt I should have the gun!
    Tommy, RIP! :wavey:
