    Things I

    So the other thread "things I shouldn't have sold" got me thinking after someone said

    "its all for sale for the right price"

    It ain't all for sale - not by a long shot. I don't own much, but I'll never sell (or otherwise get rid of):

    -my 20 gauge Citori O/U I bought when i was 14.

    -my Browning 22 lever action. Must have 500,000 rounds through it when I was a youngster

    -my dog whistle. I only have one, and I used it for 20+ years, following Brittneys around SE Nebraska. Bet I walked across the country, me and my dad used to hunt every saturday and sunday.

    While I'm thinking about it, if I can get my '51 Chevy back, I'm not letting go of it either.

    My Mossberg 146B ... I spent all Summer saving up to buy it as a teenager!

    I put a 4X scope on it and it still shoots 1/2 inch groups at 100yds!

    Hardly anything on my list, except the watch my father gave me. He bought it when I was born, gave it to me when I was 20 something. Last time I showed it to him, he can't believe it's still working.

    My guns? make offers any time. :)

    I guess I must marry my guns, in 37 years of owning guns I can count on one hand the ones I have sold or traded, on the other hand I have two gun safes full of safe queens..lol..

    My father and I started shooting clay targets when I was about 12 years old. He gave me his shotgun about 6 years ago, because he wanted me to have it, and he was never was going to use it again. Mine was one serial number different but was stolen out of my apt 23 years ago. I'll never sell his old gun. I can still get him to go to a indoor range to shoot some 38's once or twice a year though. Break-em all. Jeff

    I'll never sell my Model 63 Winchester. My dad gave to me when I was somewhere between 9 and 11. Told my daughter it's to stay in the family. That's over 50 years it's been mine. It's a 1941 serial # and he just might have bought it new although I'll never know now. Have not shot it in about 35 years or so.

    Well, I'm getting up there where I should start thinking about such things.
    But before I have a yard sale, maybe I could wait for a little longer. Anyway, the last three would be my Dad's last carry gun, a pre model 19 S&W, my 20gage L C Smith and my 044 1/2 Stevens single shot.

    My Winchester Model 120 I bought when I was 16, killed my first goose and duck with that gun.

    My Beretta 390 I won at DU.

    My Beretta 96, the first gun I went through the academy with and carried the first 7 years on the street.

    The Nikko Golden Eagle II Trap O/U that I bought my Dad back in the 80's.
    Ran a 25 straight with it first night out. I shoot in once a year in
    his memory...priceless.

    This may sound wrong but,

    I would sell my wife for the right price, and everything else that I own. I don't have anything with sentimental value.
