Glenfield 30A 30/30 with a Weaver K4 scope. I was twelve and had saved up my money to buy it. Other people tried talking me into buying another caliber but I wanted a 30/30. I still have it and it sits in the back of the safe.

12 years old. A model 99 Savage (30-30) with a shortened barrel and a homemade front sight soldered on. A piece of junk that I paid 35 dollars for. I earned the money from my paper route.

I shot one yearling with it by luck.

Remington model 742 BDL in 30-06 that I won on a 50 Cent raffle ticket from my local run gun club. Age 16 took a Whitetail doe with it the first day I hunted with it.

Small-ring 7mm Mauser that my grandfather had sporterized for me. Bought a Bushnell Scope Chief 1.5-4 x 20 for it with paper route money. Loved that gun. Still have it and the scope. Grandpa helped me handload rounds for it. Might still have some of those. Never shot anything with it but many fond memories of deer seasons and deer camps in my youth.

Stevens model 24. 410/22 crack barrel. Used for squirrel with shot and slugs for deer hunting when I was around 10. My Grandpa bought the gun new in 1941.

Marlin 336 in .30-30. I was 12 when my Grandpa gave it to me. My son took his 4th buck with it earlier this week. Grandpa would be very proud! The rifle is now being hunted by the 4th generation. I have no doubt that it will see more.

First deer gun was an inherited HR 12 gauge single shot that i used at age 12. I still have it and hunt with it.
My first deer rifle was a 94 Winchester in 32 Special, made in '55. I bought that with my 4Hpig money at 13. Bigger faster attracted me. It sadly left, but I got another some years later, a post 64. I had it and two other rifles at shop. He went bankrupt. Lost the guns, never got a penny. But I replaced it with a war era 32 Special that I shoot a good bit and do not plan to part with. Just wish I lived where you can hunt with a rifle.

The first rifle I hunted with was a 03A3 semi sporterized WW II Springfield 30'06 that still had it' steel butt plate. As I recall I paid under $100 for it, and bought some steel jacket military ammo for less than a $ a round. The Newly opened Public Shooting Range in Dallas banned steel jacket ammo shortly after that. I hunted everything from rabbits to ? with that rifle until my grandfather saw it. Shortly after that is when my grandfather put me together with a SAKO 243 as a wedding present at 23 years old.... and I am 78 years old now days....and still married to the same wife.

Ruger #1 in 6.5x55 SE at age 59. Had hunted small game & ducks in my youth but had never gone deer hunting before. Finally decided it was time to give it a try.

Mine was a model 94 trapper in 30-30. Dad got me that rifle in 1985 and I was 11 years old. Killed my first deer in 86’ with that rifle and a pile of them for the next 3 years until I purchased my own M77 RL UL in 270. Sadly I sold the Ruger many years later. I killed even more with that rifle. I killed the first deer in 27 years with that 30-30 about 3-4 years ago. It was awesome!

At 12 when I got my first hunting license, it was a Remington 14 in 30 Rem.

But for the next ten years, I stayed home and milked the cows while Dad went out and filled the freezer. I finally killed a deer with a MIJ Wea Mk V varmintmaster in 22-250.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

I grew up in some ass backwards state that required slug guns or muzzle loaders so shot my first few deer with a coast to coast (mossberg) 12ga pump gun with a rifle sighted slug barrel I borrowed from my dads buddy.

But I’d guess around age 12 I bought a browning BAR 30-06 off my dads same buddy. I ended up selling it when I was about 15-16 to get car parts for a 1970 mustang that I still have. I bought the BAR back when I was about 28 or so. I shot one deer with it a few years ago and she pretty well stays in the safe. I should hunt her again some. She deserves it.
