    Don't have a pic of it but my I inherited my Grandad's shotgun that he had purchased a couple of years before he died. I am told he was a pretty good shot with it and it was his favorite. My dad gave it to me when I was 12 and it was the first shotgun that I ever hunted with. Its a Winchester Model 12 in 16 gauge. It was produced in 1929.

    I think my oldest is a "Colt Navy .36 cal revolver", it was made around the 1860's. It's in good shape, I had it inspected by a gunsmith and he said it would actually be safe to shoot. Of course I have no plans on shooting it, but that's nice to know. I'm amazed at the workmanship from 150 years ago.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Here pic labeled 1886 lebel rifle in 8mm with feed tube. I think my bro or dad now has it. No idea how old it is.

    Rocky:
    The Lebel was the first smokeless powder infantry rifle. Quite a rifle! You might try researching it more here if you'd like: http://www.militaryrifles

    George: Beautiful S&W and great pic!

    Dakotaranger - nice looking Savage. Those were really neat guns - nice combo!

    JD - Well, it is older than you!

    Hmm great thread Chris. Now I'm going to have to go home and take pics. The oldest one I have was my great grandad's "squirrel gun". My granddad passed it down to me this past year.

    My oldest guns are a S&W .32 and Merwin & Hulbert .32, both made in the late 1800's. The S&W is on the left.

    Thanks, been working on it. Finally figured it out, it seems the problem was with my storage site.
