                None here as my dad's second wife gave his guns to her kids from a previous marriage before I arrived at the funeral. More than likely they were pawned in Nashville shortly thereafter.

                  A good handful of my guns are passed down over at least 2 generations.

                      A few but I'm partial to a LeFever grade G twist steel Damascus SxS that was my grandfather's. It only sees black powder loads.

                            That's horrible they were stolen BeeKeeper. I have several hand me downs, My Grandpa's 1897 Winchester 12 gauge he bought new in 1928, Grandpa's Sporterized 1891 Argentine mauser, Old Winchester sigle shot 22lr, Bolt action .410.

                              My hand me downs are still sitting in a gun cabinet at my fathers house. I hope they stay there for a long time.

                                I wear cotton all winter. In Central Alabama we rarely get snow and have relatively mild temps. I won't hunt if it's below 20 degF. A camo poncho is what...
