Default What guns/rifles/shotguns did you inherit from your Dad or Grandfather?

I got his utility grade double barrel 12 gauge shotgun, a single barrel 16 gauge shotgun, a single barrel 20 gauge shotgun and a 22 caliber bolt action rifle.

I loaned the 20 gauge to a friend of mine and I never heard from him or saw him again. Nice guy.

I gave my sister the 16 gauge for security as she had nothing. She still has it but has never been to the range with it. I know it is not the optimal weapon but it is better than nothing.

I am giving my son the 12 gauge (not shootable due to a bad stock) for display as well as the 22 long rifle.

He also got a Mossberg Maverick 88 as one of his Christmas gifts. He just flew in from Denver yesterday and will fly back Sunday.

Unfortunately he will not be able to take the weapons home until summer when he drives home with a couple of his buddies for a summer vacation with the family in a house on the Lake as he cannot bring them back with him on the plane.

He will be inheriting my S&W 40 cal semi automatic pistol and my SIL will inherit my Mossberg Maverick 88.

I recently inherited over 30 long guns and 10 handguns that were my Dad's, still trying to sort through it all, can't believe he is gone. As of late I keep having reoccuring dreams centered around talking to him about these guns, a lot of which I didn't know he had.

I understand your pain. My Dad died when I was a junior in college. What a tough time, especially for my Mom.

I used to hunt pheasant and rabbit with my Dad, including on Thanksgiving mornings. He had the 12 gauge double barrel and I used the 16 gauge.

I had a talk with my son today about the history of my Dads shotgun and rifle he will be taking home this summer.

Browning 20 gauge auto from Grandpa and a 22 Mossberg rifle from Dad. Sure would be nice to go out with them one more time and just have at it.

Can't remember at the moment. The gun has to be over 50 years old.

In light of what's going on now--/

I inherited nothing, I have never bought, swapped or trade for a gun.

my biological dad is gone, 10 years now . didn't know very well . But my step dad taught me about guns when I was about 8 . he bought me my first 22, it was a Ruger 10/22 w/scope and this camoflage sling . I thought that was so bad ass back then. Then when I was 11 , I got enough cash to buy my own gun, i had 112.00 to spend....I bought the biggest 12 ga there...it was a bolt action Mossberg 395 kb, 3 shot clip and c-lect choke, it was 85 bucks plus I got a box of Winchester ammo. Then when I turned 18 he bought us both a S&W model 586 357 mag. ....so from 8 yrs to present, I have been able collect firearms alongside my stepdad. And Now since I older I am able to buy what my dad wants, he was looking at Kimber 45 but kinda like the S&W model. Sw1911. So I have say I I have enjoyed every minute I spend with him,

My Dad purchased all his firearms after he came home (and married) from WWII. The shotgun was a hardware store purchase as I suspect most or all of the other firearms were.

Those days are long gone even though they happened during the "best generation" years.
