My grandfather bought me a Thompson Center Arms "New Englander" .50 Muzzle loader, Dad got me a .22 cricket somewhere around the age of eight, Grandfather bought me the single shot .410, then upgraded me to the 20 gauge, then bought me a Knight .50 cal muzzle loader. All between the ages of 8 and 10. Dad then gave me the .410 pump that used to be his.

My Grandfather bought me a Marlin .35 Rem., best lever gun I've owned. Went to Canada about a year later and took a bear with it at the age of 12.

First handgun I got was the Sigma:



Bought the 870 a few months afterward:




Bought the AK a year later:



Sold the 870 for the P22 [big mistake there], traded the P22 for the Security Six, and bought the INA Model 3 somewhere in between:



Dad gave me his Winchester Model 94:



Then my grandfather gave me his Remington Model 700 .270
And the last thing I was given was a Winchester Model 1200 16 Gauge sometime last month.


Latest purchase was the XD40 Service, back in January.



I think that's about it.

Nice collection and I bet they are already house broken. Just a note of caution, I would not try and load that ammunition into your XD that I see behind it. Might give you some problems. :lol:

Very nice collection you have there. Why do you say that the P22 was a mistake, did you have problems with it??? I have looking into either getting a P22 or a MKIII 22/45.

Nah, it was just that I miss my 870 alot :cry:

P22 started having problems after it got dirty (300 or so rounds) or I tried to fire too fast. I was looking at some Buckmarks but read that they have some sharp edges, I've never personally handled one though. If I get another it'll be that or a S&W semi...or a .22 snubby.

sharp edges?
all my .22s are at least 5" so I can hunt with them.

Thing I read said when the guy picked it up it cut his hand...which I blame on sharp edges :lol: But I've never handled one.

I took a few rabbits with the P22. I'd go out four wheeling and strap it on ( :shock: :lol: ) and I saw them everytime I went out so I'd get a head shot, take them home, skin them, and give'em to my aunt who loves them. Also took some possums at night when I would take the dog out.

I have never head of that before, I will have to look into that.
For rabbits all I have to do is let my dog out, there have been many times I wake up to find one or two rabbits on the porch and my dog sittling there wagging her tail. :D I love that dog

I have heard a lot about the Buckmarks but have never handled or shot one. I will take a peak at them next time I'm at a shop. It will be very hard for me to step away from the Ruger MK series. I have had a MKII for years and it has proven to be a very reliable pistol. I actually just got around to cleaning it for the first time in its 20 year lifetime. It is pretty amazing how reliable it still was for being as old as it is and never being cleaned. The only reason I am considering the P22 is how easy it is to setup for a suppressor. I was able to shoot a P22 a few months back and really liked the size and weight and how fun it was to shoot. The only thing holding me back is that I have heard that they have some reliability issues.
