I remember buying my first shotgun at CTC. A Maverick pump action 12 guage. Solid black and as long as I am. Lol. I can still shoot it the most consistently...better than my expensive ones. I always loved those trips to CTC.

Bought my first firearm (.22 single shot Cooey) out of the bargain bin at the old Eaton's Canadian catalogue headquarters in Moncton, out of their bargain basement. Paid for it out of my newspaper-delivery money. Brought it home on the city bus, lol! Uncased too. No one batted an eyelash.
Can you imagine! if you tried that today, they'd shut down 3/4 of the city and have the bus surrounded by snipers and choppers! LOL!
That would be about 1969. I finally lost that rifle last year after my basement flooded and I didn't know it was lying on the floor, covered with soaking wet debris for several months. She was a pretty rust colour, inside and out, when I found her. RIP. A lot of bunnies and partridge met their maker at the hands of that little pop gun.

It's too bad the fredericton north-side store didn't convert as well.. they are supposed to be the 'bigger and better' store. It might be bigger, but I find that it's managed in an unorganized way. Same with the Kent store over here.. what a bad store compared to the South side one.
And that's my complaining for the day!

Rubliner; My dad bought me a break 12 gauge single shot (baikail) at the Chatham Canadian Tire in 1984 for $79! I still have it and can't count the amount of mayhem it created over the last 30 yrs LOL. Anyone else have a first gun story???


Hubby bought me my first shotgun at CT Oromocto, Baikal 20g, still have it, love it and use it. :D
