Single shot New England Firearms .410, Christmas present when I was around 7 I believe. Took my first quail with one, and plenty of squirrels & rabbits. A lot of fond memories using that little shotgun.

My first shotgun was a Mossberg 500, 12ga I got at 13 years old, I still own it as it was a gift from my father. Hunted a lot of quail with that gun before I could afford something else.. I'm 66 now and have more than a dozen shotguns but less than a hundred.

60 years ago -- single shot Remington -- Bird dogging with my uncle when he downed a pheasant -- He ran up to hit it in the head and cracked the stock. He wrapped a roll of that old black electrical tape on it and handed to me-- My first shot gun --and the tape is still on it.

Model 66 Ithaca 20ga single. My dad bought it for 25$ in a yard sale and it looked like it had been in the corner of a barn for years. I was skeptical at first but he refinished the wood and bluing himself and turned it into a fine first shotgun. Carried it several years before I moved on to a 870. Tried to take that one with me when I left home but Dad wouldn’t let me.

My first was a Winchester 1200 in 20 gauge that my grandfather gave me on my 12th birthday. Spent a lot of time small game hunting with that shotgun before I stupidly traded it for another firearm. Still regret that trade.

Win Model 12 20ga. Lots of squirrel and rabbit pot pies & stews and great fun provided by that little shotgun. I got my first pheasant with it as well.

Hand me down Model 12 that was my dad's. When he opted for a new Model 12 with a 3" chamber, he gave me his. It was a lot of shotgun for a 14 year old, but what a treasure it was when I was in the field with him.

Browning 12 gauge BPS, received it for my 14th birthday from my grandparents. I shot a lot of ducks, geese, and pheasants with that gun. I still have it and I take it every once in awhile to keep it loose.
