    Both

    The oldest gun and the gun I have had the longest are both in the same. A German P-08 Luger from Erfurt Armory 1914 stamped. I got it from my father who found it in Germany during WWII. He kept it all these years even carring it in Korea as his sidearm. He said it was a better gun than the 1911 they issued then. (1968) I got it in the late 90's and its been a Safe Queen ever since.

    My oldest gun is also the one I've had the longest. It's a Colt Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless in .380, vintage ~1915 according to the serial number. I bought it from a now-deceased co-worker who was just opening a gun shop in 1977, and it was also his first gun.

    Cool thread. This is the oldest gun I own which I have had for about 6 years. It was given to me by my grandpa and is a Smith and Wesson Model 1905 4th change built in 1927.


    This is my second oldest. A Colt M1911A1 built in 1943 and brought back from WWII by me grandma's husband. He gave it to my dad, my dad passed and I just recently became the keeper of this fine pistol.


    I also still have my first 20 gauge single shot and my first .22 bolt action rifle given to me by my dad. I guess I have owned these for ~32 years. Take care...Jeff

    My oldest gun is a circa 1937 Stevens Model 94 single-shot 20 gauge. I used to hunt squirrels with it.

    Winchester Model 37 12 gauge single shot, 1937-47 tied with Winchester model 94 30-30 1956. Both were my Grandfather's then my Father's now mine.
    Is this going back more future than we were?

    Radom P35 VIS. Circa 1935-1936. Taken off of a German Tank Commander in WWII. My Step-Dad's father brought it back from the war and it passed on to me.

    Trapdoor Springfield 50/70 made as smooth bore in 1864 and modified as a "Second Allen Conversion" in 1866. I still load for this gun. What a hoot!

    My older one is some sort of British musket stamped 1837 as best I can tell but, there ain't much left of the gun. Just a stock and extremely corroded action and barrel. So, it does not really count.

    A 1891 Argentine mauser chambered in 7.65X53, perfect condition including the crests on the stock/ chamber. Given to me by my father a few years ago, has been in the family for 3 generations.
    I also have a Marlin Model 90 16ga O/U shotgun, Circa 1937. Both guns are shot on a regular basis.
