    I have 2 from my dad.
    1 from his dad.
    1 from my great grandad.

    Also,

    2 from my moms stepdad who was my only grandpa I knew on that side and the one that taught me how to shoot starting when I was 4. His are no more valuable then the others but have much more sentimental meaning then the others.

    This is fun.
    I think I'm making SKrueger crazy. :D

    How about a 1911A1 Ithaca. All Correct.

    It was given to me by the son of the GI that used it. :eek:

    Hey! I forgot about that one, probably because it's not mine. My wife has her Grandfather's 1908 Colt. He carried it while working as a railroad conductor in the 50s and 60s. He must have bought it used as it was made in '38. It would be 98% except for some reason the pin through the slide right at the grasping grooves was removed or moved out of place. It was kinda buggered up, but I got it straight and fully installed. Fun little shooter.

    Not from my family you won't! :D

    it's the RPMs that count!

    I have a really special 51 1911 that I bought that is now a heirloom. It was my first 1911 purchase and will stay in the family! I love that thing. :)

    I've got my grandpa's Ithaca Model 37 feather light, and Remington Nylon 66 .22 that's a tack driver. I also have an 1896 Iver Johnson Safety Automatic hammerless .38 S&W revolver from my great uncle and a 45 cal kit derringer that's either from my grandpa or great uncle nobody really knows whose it was.

    I dunno. That thing might be jinxed in that regard. Sure is a nice one though, isn't it?;)

    And I think you're one to talk! :D You should show off that Tikka you're so damned proud of, not to mention some old Colt you found.

    I know the term "tack driver" is over used, but that's exactly what Grandpa's Marlin 81DL is. That's also the reason I never kept another .22 rifle. They were never as accurate.

    What a great thread! Really enjoyed reading and seeing all the pics so far. I have a couple to share as well.

    This is cleary a colt SAA chambered in 38-40 with ivory grips. I really wish I knew the story with this. All I know is it was my grandpas. He passed when I was 14. Before his passing he spent a fair amount of time with me teaching me about firearm safety and how to hit a target :). It was my understanding that after he passed, his firearms were sold to a friend of the family. However, after his wife, my grandma, passed 20 year later; There were several hand guns found wrapped in socks and stuffed in a drawer which where given to me. I was honored to have a few of his firearms that I thought were long gone.



    The other one from him is more sentimental in value than anything, it is one of those CVA black powder kits from awhile ago that had never been completed and was beginning to rust. However @AndyinEverson and his friend were kind and generous enough to help finish it for me.

    These are two pieces I look forward to passing down to my son:)
