From Valley Springs, CA - in the central foothills. Lord help us, we're outnumbered out here! The gun-control Libs are everywhere! Bought my first gun with 12th birthday and lawn mowin' cash. Rode my bike to the hardware store downtown and plunked down $12.95 for a Remington model 514 .22 single-shot and a box of 50 "bullets". Rode home, walked down to the barn & started plinkin'. Nary a word from the local town-folk. That was 1957 in Appleton City, MO. The local Federales closed off our BLM range so now I get to drive 45 minutes to the Folsom Shooting Club Range to do my plinkin'.

Greetings from New Jersey (Cali East). Welcome to NGF.
People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.
Welcome! A Remington model 514 was also my first firearm.

My first gun was a Red Ryder BB gun. My parents bought it for me in the 1940's for about 3 or 4 bucks. Here's a 1940's ad:
