Well, let's see here. I've got my Grandfathers 12ga. Stevens 311, a Stevens Farorite 22 rifle that belonged to a great uncle, and a 20ga. Ithica 37 that was the last shotgun my father owned.
None of these guns will ever be for sale of course.

I do wish though that I had the .410 Winchester M42 that dad traded for the Ithica and an over/under(22/.410) Savage/Stevens M24. The M24 was my first shotgun and less than 2 years later I inherited the Ithica. My dad was an amazing shot with the little .410 pumpgun, he always said that the little gun wouldn't shoot far so he had to shoot quick, and did. I saw him take a double on close flushing pheasants, both of them hit the ground dead inside 20 yards. I bought a Browning M42 when they came out about 10 years back, the first game I bagged was a pheasant , sure wish dad could have seen it.

Great thread
