    When I was stationed in Hawaii I couldn't take my Calico carbine with me so it stayed with my parents. 11 years later my folks decided it was time it left their closet and brought it to me. Monday I took it to the range and had forgotten how much fun that little gun was.

    If I could figure out how to mount a light on it I think it would be a great home defense gun.

    Any other stories about rediscovering a gun from the back of a safe or closet out there?

    Not exactly a "back of the closet" story, but close. Ever since I got my KY CCDW, I've been focused on handguns. Shooting, collecting, holsters, gun laws etc. Last week I went out to a friends farm and decided to grab the Rem 870 12g out of the bedroom closet, just in case he felt like shooting some clays. He did, and I had forgotten how much I love shooting that gun.
