in downtown Nashville. We went downstairs to their sporting goods department. In the middle of the floor was a big pile of rifles. They were all 30-06 military rifles, some sporterized, some original. I picked out a Remington with a real light colored stock and an ammo box of FMJ ammo. The rifle was $17.50 and the ammo was $5 for 250 rounds.

When we got home my Dad took the mag spring and follower out and told me if I couldn't do it with one shot, don't pull the trigger. I guess that lecture on hunting with a single shot still holds true today.

When I turned 13 years old . . .

. . .I received a Savage single-shot shotgun in 28ga for Christmas, with a comment similar to what you received.

It's a good thing, IMHO.

Mine was a Savage 20 ga. for $60...

My dad wanted to teach me a lesson on saving for what I wanted. I wanted a winchester model 94, so I worked odd jobs and finally had the money and bought my gun a bout 2 years after the lust started. I bought in the year 1965. Perfect timing!
