You’re describing me exactly and besides being the black sheep I have no children I have a double barrel 12 gauge made in 1913 that I’ve had for 43 years it is not a fancy or expensive model and I would get very little for it so I keep it but if it was something that would fetch a good dollar I would research what it is worth and that may influence my decisionExcellent notion for sure. So, what if you were the ‘black sheep’ (so to speak) of the family and the ONLY one who was into firearms and such?
I have 2 daughters and NO brothers. My family name ends with me most likely. Nobody else in my family hunts/shoots besides me. My 2 daughters (16 & 7) couldn’t care less about it........for now.You’re describing me exactly and besides being the black sheep I have no children
This is part of my conundrum. By the way, why the new screen name, Bill?if it was something that would fetch a good dollar I would research what it is worth and that may influence my decision
Powerful statement right there, Sir. I have ZERO memories associated with the pistol in question. Only the knowledge that it was kept in a bedside nightstand drawer for a couple decades.If it’s the value that was being passed down and not the memories then it was actually intended for you to sell and redeem the value.
That’s a good one right there!He said when we were eating beans and tortillas for supper I never new we had a thousand dollars hanging over the fireplace for decoration!
Ultimately, I hope to God I don’t........, but I hear you loud and clear.You did say it would be a good concealed carry piece! You might could get some use and enjoyment from it before you decide.
That is my screen name on two other forums a long time ago on this forum there was a thread about anonymity and people hiding behind a screen name so several members including myself used our real name to prove a point that was a long time ago I recently ran into someone I know from another forum and they did not know it was me so it’s really just one name across all forums for meI have 2 daughters and NO brothers. My family name ends with me most likely. Nobody else in my family hunts/shoots besides me. My 2 daughters (16 & 7) couldn’t care less about it........for now.

It was my Grandmother’s, actually. I think the only reason she left it to me was that she knew I was the only one in the family who would actually like it/be comfortable with it. I was told there was a fella who offered to buy not long before she passed away and she wouldn’t sell it to him.if he intended for you to have it he meant you'd know best use..
I knew what you meant, brother. I was attempting a little facetious humor. The thing is with this particular pistol the bluing on it is extremely mirror-like. You’d almost swear it was nickel plated.....but it isn’t. I wouldn’t carry it for fear of marring it up.....which I most certainly would. I’m the proverbial ‘Bull in a China shop’ kind of guy...I meant use by carrying it--not Having to use it.
