It will be a great surprise to them one day...
I pulled the stock off of an old Springfield to clean it for a friend,,,
Rolled up inside the stock under the barrel was a note,,,
It was a very short bio of the original owner.
My friend said he was going to try to find any descendants,,,
I have no idea if that action ever came to fruition.
I have already listed who gets what gun(s) in my small collection,,,
Each gun comes with a sealed envelope containing a letter to the recipient,,,
In the letter I explain what their friendship has meant to me and why I selected this gun to give to them.
Sounds sappy but I want them to remember me for a short while.
Just an interesting segue,,,
