    Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......

    I'd say my 45-70 Sharps Creedmoor, HK P7, PTR91, Walther P1, and probably all my smiths particularly my 8" 686 no dash.

    Regards,

    I'd say my H&K USP .40 since it is my first and oldest gun.

    My boy will get everything I have which will include everything my dad has. Not a lot of fancy stuff, but all very functional. The coolest thing I guess I have is my 338 lapua and my Sig p220. There are other things with much more sentimental value, but for the most part all of our stuff is pretty average, middle of the road gear. Short of African safari hunting for the big and mean critters, he will have everything covered.

    My Marlin 30/30. That is the only gun I have sentimental value to me. The rest are tools that fit a specific requirement.

    My son gets all of them, including the safes they sit in. He's welcome to sell all but one.

    It presently still belongs to my dad and is a WWI 1911 that has protected our family on numerous occasions for 4 generations. One day that I'm not looking forward to, I'll post pics.

    6.5 x 55mm Swedish Mauser. My dad bought it in early sixties for 30 bucks and sporterized it. Taken a ton of deer and should take many more.
    Matching S/N's and built in 1904. My grandparents are both "off the boat" Swedes, so it kinda ties me to the motherland.
    My kids love it as well.

    The only one that I have that is (sort of) collectible is an M1 Garand "CMP Special" it shoots like a dream and is very cool. Much like others the rest of my collection are tools. However my only son loves to shoot each and every one so who knows. At any rate I am sure he will get all of them unless my wife steps up to the plate.

    All of my collection will go to my son and I have told him my rule is if it was passed to him that he must pass it to the next Gen along with a photo of each of us together . anything he buys or next gen buys they can do what ever they want with it but if it was passed down it must be passed again. so hopefully it keeps growing and keeps our family free for many generations.

    My grandfather's Browning A-5 from the mid 1930's, by then I'll give it some restoration like blueing and refinished stock and new springs...And my father's bicentennial Ruger 10-22 made in '76
