    J.C. Higgins .22 with a Sears(Weaver) J-4 scope. Yes, I still have it. Got it the same year my wife was born. These guns were made for Sears by Marlin.

    We talking firearms or guns in general. Hand me down BB & pellet rifles were the first guns. Winchester model 37 single shot 12 gauge w/ full choke was my first firearm. Traded it off for my Ithaca model 37 12 gauge. Once I got married I found one & bought it for the wife for her birthday.

    Texas of course
    Bought my first about 10 years ago when I turned 21. It's a HK USP compact 9mm. Still have it today and actually put 250 rounds through it yesterday for a total of about 50K rounds. Never had a single malfunction with a and it still remains one of my favorites. Here she is with all her purdy wear marks. ;)
