I hear ya! I have already given my son my recently re barreled 270 Win that is a tack driver. Mauser action, Fajen thumb hole stock, Lilja #4 27" bbl.
We use these things together. He has possession but still calls it Dad's gun.
I'm doing life's dream hunt this year with Buffalobob and at 64 I wonder how many more I'll be up to. He'll end up with the AM also. But I see an 338 AX in my future also. I s'pose he'd enjoy that also.
Kids always come first anyway.
