    Concealed means concealed, my eye!

    I am sick to my stomach.

    I was talking to a member of my church, whose husband passed away a few years ago. She had a stack of American Rifleman magazines on the desk at the office, and I asked her about them. She told me they were her husbandís. She then asked if I like them. I, of course, said Ďyes, and that I loved shooting.í Then she wanted to know if I wanted 40 years worth of American Rifleman. She also told me that she wished she had known. She just gave away her husbandís extensive gun collection 2 years ago.

    Now, I canít work. I canít eat. And Iím still not done crying.

    I am sorry for your loss.

    This is why I sat my dad down and made darn sure that his guns went to me in his will. I've also dropped hints to my gun-collecting uncle who doesn't have any kids.

    I will do the same for mine. Right now it all goes to my son, but if he doesn't show an interest, I'll make sure that they all go to someone who will.

    Awww that's too bad.

    Ours are listed specifically in the will docs, as there are some family heirlooms there. Along with cookware - that is a sentimental spot for me as well.

    It can't be helped. Don't beat yourself up over it

    go clean some guns of you own, maybe some range time to sooth the pain.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    I feel your pain,in a different way. My long departed mom was talked out of my dad's guns by my half brother. Python .357 that only had about 30 rounds though it,bought new by my dad. Mid 1960's/ 30-30,etc. If you want someone to have something after you pass on, appoint an attorney as executor,NOT a family member or relative.

    it does hurt to hear

    When my grandfather passed his rifles (only two) came home to our house because he knew they would be taken care of and used.

    As for my other grandfather, there is a list on the door of the safe. As for the family members being an issue they won't be. For some reason t seems Only granddad my father and I are the ones with the "touch" for the safe dial.

    OUCH!

    Sounds familiar. My dad passed a few years ago, yes I retained his firearms and parafanilia. But I'm afraid I will find the multi decade collection of Guns and Ammo and American Rifleman magazines one of these days...
