New England single shot 20 gauge. I mowed and raked leaves in the neighborhood that fall to buy my first gun.

Had the hammer slap fire on me...twice! After the second time it happened I took a saw to that POS. Killed a lot of game with that gun...Good times!

First kill with it...

Christmas 1975 I got my first long box. 20 gauge H&R Youth Topper.

Killed my first rabbit with it 2 years later. I layed the rabbit on back porch when I got home while I went inside to grab a bowl. When I came back out the rabbit was gone. Old Dutchess had it in her dog house. I figured she deserved it and let her keep it since I got two that day.

I started off with a single shot .410 dad gave me for Christmas many years ago. If I remember correctly he got it from Montgomery Wards. Wish I still had it or could remember what make it was. I want to say a Remington but for the life of me I can't remember lol.

I started out with a single shot 16 gauge.... Probably if I remember correctly was shooting Revelation Ammo from Western Auto... Boy I'll bet no one remembers those stores, they sold a little bit of everything....

I never really did much rabbit hunting growing up but did a fair amount of squirrel hunting, my first shotgun was a NEF single shot .410

first rabbit gun was a Ben Pearson Cougar recurve bow. I wish I still had my first squirrel gun, though. H&R single shot .410. I don't recall the model since it got stolen out of our house by a burgler when I was 12.
