    I hear it all the time, at gun clubs, TS.com, gun shops: Wish I keep that shotgun.
    So of all the shotguns you've sold and traded, which one would you like to have back. For me it was my 1971 870TB, not an expensive gun and kicked like a mule, but it would ink-ball targets and looked good for the money. Wayne

    Sold a browning .22 medalist in presentation case about 40 years ago for $125. Also sold the old plain BT-100 that I broke my only 100 with. Two bad plans I guess.

    I could not list them all. I also sold an old 870 TB that was really nice and it just so happens that I sold it in Fort Wayne when I lived there. Maybe you bought it Wayneo

    Model 12 Trap. My late father bought it new for me in 1965. Has two or three very tiny scratches near the muzzle where I dropped it while shooting quarry pigeons!!

    Traded a mint Browning Medalist .22 cal. target pistol for a mint Browning A-5 Belgium VR, plus I gave him $25. This was back in 1975. Dumb on my part but I couldn't afford (short of das kapital for any of those socialists out there)the shotgun back in those days and always wanted one since I was a kid. Darrell

    A Model 12 that my dad bought for me. A friend of my dad's did some stock work on it. Could absolutely hammer ducks with it. My a-- still hurts for getting rid of that one. Hunted many hours with dad with it. He carried his dad's Model 12 that was a full choke that grampa had opened up IC to shoot them new birds call pheasants!!

    A Win. Mod 97 I bought around 1976. A friend of mine found it at an antique shop. It was seized and when I got it cleaned up it appeared to be unfired.

    It was a 30" Mod. which I was told was a bit unusual as most were full.

    It was a late one (1957). It would be a good collector because of its condition.


    Regards....Gerald

    Original early '60s Python, K-32 Masterpiece, Savage 23-D hornet, #1 Ruger .222, Breda 20 over/under, 1903A1 Springfield, 1903 Springfield with cut for Pederson device, three screw Super, set of four Remington rolling blocks with bayonets, Sport model woodsman.....gotta stop here...starting to cry.

    My philosophy now is: if you haven't used it in two years, take it out and use it...don't ever sell one. It will be the one you miss most.
