    My mom will soon be moving out of her house
    of 54 years. I was helping her clean out
    the bedroom closet and found 2 loaded
    handguns!!! My dad has been gone for
    16 years and these were his....a 22lr and
    380 ACP. Wow......

    Well, my first step was to mail pictures to my brother and let him know these exist...
    I'm not sure after that what I want to do. The LGS will break them down and clean them up (badly needed) for $30.00 each....seems reasonable!
    My brother is lending me the 22lr Colt Woodsman that was also my dads. That probably needs to be returned to him...

    Very interesting find. I am sure they have some strong sentimental value.
     
  8. All I ever find is dust bunnies and cobwebs.:crying:

    Nice find, Hej Hej.

    Yes....and no. I never did much with shooting handguns with my dad. Maybe once at a local range....
    I have only recently become interested in handguns and shooting. When the government started telling me what I could and couldn't due with regard to my 2nd ammendment rights.....I started getting interested in handguns and Glocks specifically!
    I am fourth on a wait list for a Blue Label G19 through the GSSF....
    It seemed the more scarce guns and ammo was....the more interested I got!!!! Am I crazy????

    OK.....here is another find at moms. It's a reproduction of a 36 Caliber Navy Cap and Ball Revolver. Never been fired and in the original box....wow.

    That's it. I'm gonna go clean my closet.





    Nice finds, go shoot those things.:supergrin:
     
  15. I never find the bunnies! All I find is the dust, cobwebs and spiders. :whistling: :rofl:
     
  16. Unfortunately, my folks' house burned down before I could do that. The only shootin' iron I knew was there probably survived in a storeroom, but the place was looted only hours after the fire was out and before I could get there five hours later. Bye-bye Ruger MK II. . .
