Default what gun means the most to you?

To me, it is my fathers 1911. It was his Grandpa's and before dad left for Desert Storm great grandpa gave it to him. It is a WW2 1911 and still shoots amazingly. Great Grandpa bought it when the military was getting rid of their surplus. It was his favorite and it is dads favorite.
One day, it will be passed to me and then to my children.

What about you? What gun means the most to you?

An old S&W Mod 15-2 that was given to me by her father. It allowed me to have a gun in the house without her being able to say anything.

From there, it went down hill.

I have since convinced her to let me buy a handgun for every birthday. Now I have to live until I am 104.

I would have to say my AR, not because of any sentimental value but because my father has helped me so much with the build and him and I spend alot of time at the range on and squirrel shooting trips with out AR's.

Well

1. My father's 1974 Remington 1100 (20ga)...he saved up all he could when he was young to get this shotgun because it was just like his grandpas. However, he didnt have quite enough. But his grandmother, who saved up her own $ to make dresses and other clothes was dying of cancer and she gave him the rest of that $, shortly after buying the gun, she died....I will get this gun when he dies (its awesome to be the first born) and my children will get it when I die....and i must say...he said that if i ever sold it his ghost would come back and kick my a$$ black and blue..

2. My Browning 425 12ga...first gun I ever purchased completely on my own

3. My great grandfathers browning citori superposed....he used it to hunt, my grandpa used it to hunt, my father used it and now i use it for pheasant hunting...ill never let that thing go.

Shihan, what is it with you and Sigmas? They really aren't the greatest thing since sliced bread, you know that right?

Winchester Model 90, re-chambered from 22 short to 22LR! Has my Great Grandfathers, my Dads and my initials carved into the stock. One day, my Son and grand children's initials, too!
