The first rifle I picked up was a mosin m91/30 thats in great condition. Like they just forgot it in a armory somewhere in russia. I cant find any ammo for the right price anymore. I am not paying 18 bucks for 20 rounds of tula. Last time I shoot it I used all my ammo and that thing was steaming and hissing from the heat, the cosmoline was coming out the wood.

My first was a .410 Pardner single shot by New England Arms. My granpa got it for me for my 9th christmas

I still have it
a spikes ar15,damn good deal on aim too
The first gun I ever fired was my dad's Coast to Coast model 60 knockoff. A few years later I got a nice little bb gun/pellet rifle. Then an old springfield model 86? I think, it's an old bolt action .22 that is tube fed. I loved that thing and carried it everywhere. I would bulls eye birds with it all the time. Then my dad bought me my first shotgun for hunting which is my 20ga 870. After that my grandfather gave me a bolt action marlin .22 that I love and still use, and a stevens model 820 shotgun. After that I bought my first gun with my own cash, it was a tarus revolver in .22 mag. Then the first gun i bought when I was 18 was a Lee-Enfield mk III* that I love a lot.
I sorta went the same way, I started with Mossberg 500, then a milsurp Lee Enfield, and the I went Jew and bought a Tavor and absolutely love it.
the shop i bought my NPAP from has been shut down too.

wouldn't happen to be Gregg's Guns would it?
some of these warm my heart

I bought an M91 Nugget shortly after. I'm currently trying to bed it properly, and if I run out of patience I'll just sell it and buy an M39 instead.
If you bed a nugget will it really make it that much of a better shooter? Because my second gun was a nugget (which I sold, which I then bought another back in january, which i also sold, because it was also SHIT accurate)
>gritty trigger
So I see you bought a shit first SKS

I think it'll make a shit nugget better, but nuggets only get so good. Mine can pound out some crazy good groups with good ammo without any modifications, I don't think bedding, corking or floating the barrel, shit like that, will really improve it much.

Agreed. I would never sell a gun to make a bill, because I don't buy shit unless I know I have bills taken care of, and if I had some kind of debt that was so important (rent/mortgage, medical cost, food) I would just use the gun to get money to pay that.

1942 Izhveshk(or however the fuck its spelled) M91/30

I mean, sometimes I'll buy a gun just to do some gunsmithing work on but never a working surplus rifle. Something broken or very cheap, sure, but usually just buy new guns to tinker on.
I turned my Marlin 917V into a youth stock gun and eventually I'm going to cut the bull barrel down to 16" for the tiniest groundhog killer ever.
I don't even have kids and I'm the only one that shoots it but it was $300 and it seemed like a good idea.
If I ever have a son that will be the rifle he learns on and I'll have him dropping fuzzy critters in no time.
Am cri. My first gun other than a .22 was a mk.3 and I love it to bits
>buy mosin many moons ago for $70
>shoot it a few times

Long story short I obrez'd it because bore problems.
What would you guys recommend as a first gun?

Chink sks.
My G21 was $300 with three magazines and the two factory casings in the envelope being the only two rounds fired through it before my ownership.

Owner was a family friend who needed to make some quick cash.

The first real gun I ever had was a Mossberg 500, although I'm not sure if I should count that. Was 10 at the time, father bought it for my birthday because we live in funtucky and god dammit, every young man needs a shotgun according to him.

First guns I ever bought with my own money was a fucking slapped together CAI nugget and Savage Mk.II Nugget is decent enough, and couldn't be any happier with the Savage Mk.II. The Savage is a fucking tack driver. My only complaint is that the stock is a bit uncomfortable, and feels of worse quality than it actually is. I suspect this is done to have a better price point than CZ, (in which case, it is an effective strategy, that was the reason I chose them over CZ), but it is not a completely bad stock. The barrel was certainly floated quite well and it was an excellent shooter with no adjustment required. Also, dat Accutrigger.
There's nothing gay about hate fucking a man to assert a point.

I fired corrosive ammo through my SKS and didn't clean it because "what's the worst it can do?"

Well, let me tell you, partner...

I bought my daughter a rifle the day she was born.
6.5mm carcano rifle

I sell guns at a discount to my friends that have not as much money because I'm that kind of a guy.
First gun I had too love the fuck out of it. Father bought it when I was 16 from a family friend for $50 guy included a 16 and 20 inch barrel pistol grip and Woodstock. I knew it was a good deal but looking at it now holy shit.

You don't want to waste your bullets by shooting them?

I just would like to have some stocked up in case someone wants to go shooting or camping or something. If I run out, I seriously have no idea when I would be able to get more at a reasonable price.
You can buy bullets on the internet.
Just bought my gun actually

>Reluctantly agree, I don't want to make her upset or uncomfortable
>Actually, fuck that, I'll buy a gun if I want
>Save up some money, go on Armslist, and a Hungarian M44 for $235
>Meet Australian dude in a Lowes parking lot, he pulls out the gun
>It's fucking gorgeous, smooth action, intact bayonet, no rusting, and the dude even shows me how to oils it and lubricates the bolt
>Other, funloving roommate drives me back to the apartment and lets me leave the rifle in his trunk
>As soon as everyone else is out of the house at the same time, run the rifle inside

Still haven't shot it because I only have 20 rounds for it and I don't want to deal with hippy roommate finding out I bought a gun. But she did just start dating a friend of ours who's building his own AR-15 so that problem might just solve itself.
Dude that's an early production Type 56. Is it all matching?

That thing has a fuckton of character beat into it. It probably has seen war.

It's way cooler than an AK.
If you can find me .22lr at under $.10 a round online, let me know.
