My first was an old single shot break open in 16ga.Not even sure what brand it was but I do remember that it kicked like a mule.Seems it had a plastic hollow stock and weighed next to nothing.Did get to take my very first deer with it.One day my uncle shot it and the buttstock broke.The only emotion I felt was relief.Good ole dad bought one of those slip on gunboots and I was back in business.He made it up to me a few years later when he bought me a Remington 700 in 243.Man that was one sweet rifle.I shot it open sights the first two years.
It would drive nails at 50 yds.Later he put me a 4pwr redfield scope on it.The ways of hunting and people was a lot different back then.I miss those old days and the old timers.

Walk softly,keep the wind in your face and watch your backtrail
