I’ll kick it off with my Remington 870 and my Ruger GP-100.

my Dad bought me the 870 for Christmas 1980, despite his non-gun-owning feelings . He supported my shooting and hunting drive, even though our family did neither. He was a WWII combat vet and had heard enough gunfire for his lifetime.
the GP was carried as a personal sidearm in Desert Storm by my best friend, an AF pilot. Despite being a good rifle shot and a superb shot gunner, he struggled with handguns. That changed with my GP; he shot it like a pro.
Saddam Hussein had announced that he would execute downed pilots; my friend planned on making them work for it.

I would have a hard time letting any of mine go. Didn’t receive any heirlooms as I was deemed “unworthy” by the fam. Fathers only gun was stolen in the early 90’s. I couldn’t be trusted in my late teens early 20’s because I was a bit of a trouble maker- really I think I was just a normal dissenting teen/adult.
Ill hold onto all my guns- not giving up one of them.

Kinda hard to sell what was lost in the boating accident, and I'm not posting what I lost either.

All I got left is the SBR and silencers, they were left at home when I went boating because I didn't want the hassle of keeping the paperwork dry. Don't plan to selling them either, but for the right price... One of those if you've gotta ask you can't afford it deals.

I too was deemed “unworthy” by my family. I ran with a group of “Winners” in my early teen years. My Dad brought me my first hunting rifle when I was 15. Remington 700 in .243 cal. And a Ruger 10/22 at 16. I still have both and probably will be buried with them! Lol

I have an H & R 922 revolver. It has a 6" octagon barrel. It was my Grandpa's. Grandpa gave it to my dad, my dad passed it on to me. The next thing would be a Marlin model 39A Gold Trigger, my dad had this since before I was born. Dad also gave me a 44mag Dan Wesson with an 8" barrel. I just need to find the rest of the other lengths to add to it.

Forgot to mention, the Dan Wesson is still in the original box and has the barrel removal tools with it.

My two Six8's, 16 and18 Inch Bison builds and my M1 Garand. The 16" Bison is suppressed and I shoot hogs with it, the 18" is my long distance Six8 and is great out to 500 meters. The M1 because it is a slice of history built in 1943. I have had it restored, put a muzzle break on it and a scout scope. It shoots big bullets a long way and is a beautiful weapon.

There are several I suppose . I knew the folks that bought most of them new . One has 2 letters that clear up why the parts don't match the SN .
