    I got the story of "How my dad got his model 1895 Winchester into the house" Published on OPB's Gun stories tumblr page

    Check it out.

    Gun Stories

    Wanted a story about how firearms are something besides what the media and the people on both sides of the debate tend to focus on.

    And for those who think OPB is somehow the enemy. Well I'm going to take the tack that teaching is better then fighting as a way to show we aren't a bunch of crazy gun toting baby killers. But just people who into a different hobby then others.

    The entire "Gun Stories" section is quite good. Even the (few) anti-gun stories aren't "BAN ALL GUNS NOW BECAUSE I SAID SO!"

    From the entry:

    What a nostalgic moment! I remember people like that in my life too.
