Well, I hesitated to upload that for fear that it would be seen as me ‘advertising’ it. Unfortunately, my wife doesn’t want ANYTHING to do with a firearm for reasons that I will not make known on this thread. However, passing it on to a daughter might be a viable option. Will have to wait another 14 years to see if that will happen, however.Glad you put a picture up since I couldn't remember which one it was. Great and practical gun! I like the lightweight 442, but that one is a great one also. Honestly I would keep and use it. Great for a wife or daughter as well.
I'd definitely keep it in the family and pass it down. If no other black sheep's then I'd make sure I find it a good home with some one close to me.
Luckily I do have family members that shoot and hunt with me so there's someone to pass down guns to.
Very true. Things change over the years THATS for certain. I gave my oldest daughter a little .410 shotgun once for Christmas. She seemed excited at first, but quickly lost interest. Not too long ago I bought her a Glock 44 so she could ‘plink’ with me when I was shooting my Browning Buck Mark. She seemed REALLY excited about that.......and then quickly lost interest......again.In the future, you may find you are no longer the black sheep about guns.
Personally, when I gave someone a gift of a firearm and later learned they had sold or traded it, their lack of appreciation caused me to be a little hurt.
Will consider it strongly. My youngest daughter (7 years old) might be a candidate. She likes to see deer on the hoof.....but not so much when they’re hanging from a gambrel and turned inside out. You’re certainly lucky to have family members to hunt with. At first, hunting/shooting by myself was great therapy for me and provided a means for me to ‘get away from it all’. Something has changed about that now and it would be a better experience if some ‘company’ was involved. Hey, at least I’ve got this forum. Thanks for your input.
My wife gets sentimental when she kills a deer or javelina, but trust me, when those ribs come of the grill she is full of joy, Lol
Well, now I do have to say that BOTH my girls like the deer sausage and jerky that I make. So, here’s to hoping. Cheers!There's still hope Sir.
Sounds like you made a good call there, Sir. Bravo!After getting to know this 17 year old young man him and kiwi guy that he spent several hours each day sitting with my brother after his diagnosis, I told my brother that the rifle was in the hands of a good man and should stay right where it was.
