    Default Hello from The Socialist Republik of Kalifornia

    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 and Salutations
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    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:

    Greetings from SoCal. I went the Red Ryder route also at age 7, and then the Winchester 69A came my way at 8 years of age.
