    The Hi Point thread made me think of this. I know some people cheap out on their first weapon, and some people go way overboard.

    Mine was a Colt 1911 (Series 80 Gold Cup National Match).

    That I bought personally?

    Some kind of gay ass Mossberg 500 that had been tragically violated by a Sportsman's Guide catalog, simply because my father had always refused to buy one (with my own money!) for me. He (and everyone else) was right...... It sucked copius amounts of cawk.

    First pistol I purchased myself was a two-tone P226 which led me to a stint with Sigs for a while.

    I had cool parents/family, who all pretty much gave me free reign when it came to gun stuff. I worked my ass off as a little kid, and the half of the money that I was able to spend on my things (other half was banked as per parents mandate) was nearly always spent of guns/ammo. I miss my childhood :(

    First gun ever was an H&K USP Compact 9mm :bowdown:

    3000+ rounds later and it still looks brand new. I'm OCD when it comes to cleaning them after shooting.
