American Rifleman - October 2016 - 50

FAVORITE FIREARMS NRA member photo A Reunited With A First Love s a young boy, I attended the high power matches at the Blue Ridge Rifle Range in Connecticut with my father. The gun club my dad belonged to participated in the event, and it was always exciting for me. At the end of the day, we would head off to a nearby field where the club members practiced hitting hand-thrown clays. I enjoyed my first experience shooting clay birds in that field. Nothing compares to the feeling of bursting that bird into a million pieces when you nail that shot! My father appreciated my innate ability for breaking clays, and for my 16th birthday he presented me with my first shotgun. It was a High Standard Flite King in 20 gauge. I was in love. About four years later, one of the club members made me an offer to purchase the gun, as he wanted to start training his young son how to shoot clays and thought it would be the perfect starter gun. By then I was looking to buy a 12 gauge, and that sale definitely helped pay for a new gun. Now fast-forward to my 40th birthday, when my father surprised me with a Remington 870, and my love for sporting clays was renewed. In addition, a rekindled bond between my father and I blossomed as we again began shooting clays together as often as we could. A few years back, the gentleman who bought my first gun all that time ago asked if I would like to have it back. I couldn't even believe the offer. I had fondly thought of that 20 gauge over the years, and had always been sorry that I ever sold it. Now I have it back in my collection, and it is once again my favorite firearm. Over the years I have purchased many shotguns, but I will always get a kick out of shooting "my first love." FREDERICK WAHLERT, VIRGINIA Nearly every shooter has a favorite firearm.
