First 'real' guitar? First Act cheap kiddie acoustic.
First electric guitar? Squier Mini Strat in black finish which I tore apart a few years ago!
First weapon? Swiss Army that I later gave to one of my closest buds.
Take a Gibson Les Paul, throw a DiMarzio Super Distortion in it, plug it into a Marshall amp and turn it up to 10. It's pretty much a no brainer!- Ace ****in' Frehley
I don't see why we have to go through all the bullshit of high school just to be musicians- Alex Lifeson
It doesn't matter how fast you can play or how many chords you know, if you can't play the blues, go the **** home you ain't worth nothin'- Richie Scarlet
Critics love Elvis Costello because they all look like him- David Lee Roth
Ace is God- Dimebag Darrell (RIP. 1966-2004)
Like is too strong a word...I don't really like anybody- Chris DeNicola (I love Road Rants)
You can keep the drugs, I'll take the sex and the rock n' roll- Paul Stanley
Thanks..I like to play...- Garth Algar (AKA Dana Carvey)
And most importantly....**** OFF ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME! (Gene Simmons, Eddie Trunk, and anyone who matters)

Unless my Boy-Scout sheath-knife counts I've never owned a weapon.

First weapon I fired was my Dad's 1906 S&W .38cal Military/Police special. I was about 9 at the time. When Dad passed, I got the pistol. Eventually had it tuned up and reblued, bought a presentation box for it and gave it to my Son.

Edit: a pocket knife is not a weapon imho.
I totally agree with you. I put pocket/folding knives in the "tool" category.
Then again, I also see my firearms as tools too. As a civilian, my guns are tools for self defense, not offensive weapons.
Not unless we have another American Revolution where we the people will need to stand and help remove our tyrannical government.
LOL - or if the UN drops troops over our lands.

First "weapon" was a realization at age 12 under a bit of tutelage that everything is a weapon of the mind and that the mind is the true weapon. All else is simply matter that might be many kinds of resource.

that was until after six months of lessons I came along and picked it up....
She quit lessons and gave me the Guitar.
A Sears Silvertone W/matching tube amp....
Still kick my self over Getting rid of it........
And my first weapon, A Benjamin Single stroke pellet pistol passed down to me from my dad.
does not mean you are useful.
I am cynical, pessimistic, and liable to come off as prick-ish.
That's on a good day.....
