Marlin 60 new when I was 10. Still got it 43 years later.
My first .22 was my hand-me-down Remington M-12 take-down pump that has taught several generations of my family how to shoot. I still own it after nearly 60 years and I will pass it down to my grandson one day.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.
Yes, but then again, I only just bought it in 2015.
Now, if you're talking about the first .22 I ever fired, then that would be my father's Winchester 62.
Unfortunately, while my dad owned quite a few guns, I seldom got to shoot them because he was more into hunting than target shooting, and while I was initially interested in joining him, when I was finally ready to accompany him on a hunting trip at Age 12, my mother insisted that if I shot a deer then I had to help skin/gut it, and after seeing my dad skin/gut a deer I promptly lost all interest.
Heck, I lost all interest in shooting until 2015 when I bought my first pistol for self-defense, and rediscovered it while watching videos on YouTube in attempt to pick the right gun for me. Ultimately, I chose the Walther PPK/S because it fit my hand very well, was easy to field strip, and my grandfather was a huge fan of James Bond, so I remembered it from watching movies with him. The Walther PPK/S was available in .22LR, so that was my first .22 pistol, and it also served as a trainer for my Smith & Wesson PPK/S in .380 ACP, which has sharp recoil being straight blowback, and at the time .380 ACP could be hard to find in stores.

My first .22 was a Harrington & Richards bolt action single shot rifle I inherited from my older brother in 1957.
At Reynolds Hardware a 50 rd. box .22 LR was .43 cents and a box of .22 shorts were .38 cents.
The gun was much more accurate than me until I learned proper sight alignment, and then it was a master squirrel slayer.

A favorite uncle gave me his Savage Stevens .22/.410 over and under when I was 10. It had the nylon stock and forearm, and a side button selector for which barrel was to be shot. It was a little on the heavy side, and the .22 barrel didn't have the best alignment with the firing pin, as I had a fair amount of failures to fire the .22. I like catching a tree full of birds in the evenings. I think my best kill shot with the .410 was 12 black birds!
