H & R 22..9 shot ...95% perfect.My dad bought the day I was born to protect his family with my mama sitting in the car with me & that was in 1956, so I guess it worked, i'm still here. I think we all had a pistol which was our fathers, that nothing was better for each of us. Didn't matter if is was a 45 or a 22 It was the shit

A Ruger 4 3/4 inch Blackhawk in .357.

My brother-in-law has it now, and I'm still trying to con him out of it.

Colt Trooper Mk III.
He taught me how to shoot with it. And he gave it to me when I got out of the Air Force.

First pistol I ever shot, P-08 9 mm. German Luger. Dad gave it to me before he went to that big veteran's reunion in the sky in 1990.
Still shoots great.

My grandfather ran a hardware store in the 30s

two years ago I asked my uncle if I could buy my grandpa's guns he said no he'd give them to me.

So in the bunch was a US firearms 32 S&W top break now in flaked nickle now worth about $60 I showed thwm to my family and no one knew where the pistol had come from it turns out it was the pistol from the cash register in the old hardware store. It is not pretty and I have not shot it but its special.

Handguns, two. Both bring backs. Late war production P-38, and an absolutly pristine P-08 with the wooden holster that doubles as a shoulder stock.

The rifles and shotguns were all right handed, my boys have those not. But the handguns stay with me till I'm gone. Then they can fight over them.

Nothin from my dad. He has been tuggin the jug hard most of his life... You wouldn't believe what that guy had that he let slip away for nothing. I watched him sell my grandfathers 1911 (Remington Rand) for 75.00 to a local gun shop years ago. Too many others to mention

This is one of my favorites that my Dad left me. He kept it in the safe and I don't remember him shooting it.

I sure have though.

It's a sweet pistol.

Winchester Mod 94 1963. This is a fun and extremely accurate gun. I've hit deer at 120yds heart shot thru thick woods. My Dad in his day was a hell of a shot. He hit a deer with this gun 3 times as it ran across a dirt road. All 3 shots were center mass. I asked him why he shot it 3 times. He said, "it was still runnin". This was my first deer gun and is still my favorite if i am in timber. He won it in a poker game in the early 70's.

a few other very nice guns, but that one is his legacy.

My story is a sad one. My Dad had his original Colt 1911A1 that was issued to him during WWII up until around the time I was born. At that time my oldest brother was a teenager and getting into a lot of trouble and fights and my Dad wasn’t comfortable having that gun around the house at that time so he sold it. I know, I know, don’t even bother saying it.

While I would love to have that gun today I know even if my Dad hadn’t sold it, it probably still wouldn’t have ever made it into my procession anyway. Being the youngest of 3 boys, I’m sure one of my older brothers would have gotten it which would have ended equally as bad as one of them isn’t into guns and has an antigun wife and the other one would have probably pawned it sooner or later.

Though my Dad owned a fair amount of guns, he wasn't really a shooter. He had this Colt 9mm in his top dresser drawer for years, locked and loaded. It was my first introduction to the 1911 and it wasn't until years later that I learned that 1911s were primarily chambered in .45.

He knew I was fascinated with it, and he gave it to me when I turned 21. It's one of the very few guns I own with any sentimental value.
