Hope you bagged a lot of rabbits, ducks, squirrels, pheasants or whatever you were gunning for in MO with that shotgun, and glad you still have it.
Nuthin' like being young and being able to earn money to be able to buy your own gun. It teaches you the value of a dollar
.....or what the value of what a dollar used to be.
