Default Do you have a "special gun"?

Mine is a Winchester 1300 12 gauge NWTF edition. When I was 12 in Little League my dad made a deal with me. He said if I hit a homerun in Allstars he would get me a 12 gauge of my choice. Thats what I picked! I plan on using it for spring turkeys. I never used it in the spring before. Thats the gun that will always mean the most to me.

Mine is a little Savage bolt action .22. It was the first gun I ever shot and I and it belongs to my dad. (It still sits in his broom closet and at 12 yrs. old I snuck out ALL his ammo and shot it all up..at moms trash barrel!!!!....boy was I ever in trouble!!) I truly hope it is mine someday as it has a whole lot of sentimental value!

Mine is a Model 99 Savage in 250-3000. It was my grand-fathers. When he passed away my dad gave it to me. It was my first deer rifle and in the years that I have had it I have taken many deer. It's not the largest caliber but a well placed shot will bring down even the biggest buck. I added a nice 3-9x scope a few years back and it still is my favorite gun.

Mine is a Ithaca feather weight 20 guage, I used this gun to duck hunt and small game when I was growing up, being the only girl, my brother didn't think I should get this gun, however being Daddy's little girl means something and last summer my dad told me to bring in a gun case the next time I came over, I sorta had this dumbfounded look on my face, he said you want that Ithica don't you? Well yeah but didn't figure I would get it. I'm glad he gave it to me before something happens to him, it means alot to me.

Marlin 1895 refinished with Roguard and NP3 by Robar shooting Buffalo Bore 350 grain bullets. It gives me comfort in grizzly country. My sidearm is a S&W .41 magnum when bow hunting. SRM out!

Aww...sorry your grandma passed. My grandparents were my greatest inspiration! They, all, taught me to fish and hunt.
