    I have a 1860's 4 barrel derringer that my Dad had and gave to me before he died. I guess I've had it about 15 years.

    Browning Sweet Sixteen built in 1956. I got it in 1965 when my grandfather died. It still shoots like a dream. We were a family of quail hunters. Now, the quail are gone, so the gun is loaded with #1 buck and always handy. It is extremely reliable. To my knowledge, it has never misfired. Certainly never with me. I can still hit my target quickly without thinking much about target acquisition, safety release, and trigger squeeze. Muscle memory is great. Better than brain memory in my case. I have other shotguns loaded with buckshot around the place, but the sweet sixteen is the one I keep close.

    Next is an Ithaca 12 gage side by side breach loader built in 1893. I got it twenty years ago from my dad. It belonged to my great grandfather who passed in 1941 leaving the gun directly to my dad. GGF shot the hell out of the right barrel. The left barrel not so much. We no longer shoot it due to safety concerns with the Damascus barrels. One of my children or maybe a grandchild will get it. The one that is the most interested in guns. Remains to be seen who that will be.

    Man, I think I want one... really pretty gun there... I would NOT carry it, but I would mostly just look on it if it looked that good, especially if it had a history.

    Longest-held and oldest guns

    I have several guns (Browning Sweet-16 and a Savage .22LR/.20-ga over/under) that my dad gave me when I was a kid which works out to over 30 years back.

    That said, my dad also gave me a Wards Western Field Rifle in 1987 (.22LR bolt-action) that his dad got for him and his brother in either 1928 or 1932 (I'm not 100% on the year, but it was definitely the Depression era). When my dad passed away in 2000, I inherited his small collection which included a Marlin .22 tube-fed semi-auto and a .20-gauge shotgun which I know are both older than I am (born 1964).

    Just adding my part to the discussion.

    Regards,

    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.

    My oldest is a Sears Model 200 12 gauge shotgun I bought in 1982, my oldest handgun is a Ruger Securuty Six 2.75 inch barrel .357 that I bought in 1985. Yes, you guessed correctly I turned 18 in '82 and 21 in '85.

    Cheers

    I guess I misread the question. The oldest gun I have is a savage OU .410 and 22mag combo. I have had it since I was 7. So 19 years. The oldest gun I have is my grandfathers 1940's Winchester model 1894 30-30. I belive it is a 1946 model or maybe 1945. He got it when he came home from WWII
