When you're gone
When you pass on after life, anyone planning on being buried"if you choose to be instead of cremation" with your favorite firearm? My buddy and I were discussing this the other day and both agreed we would like to be buried with our 1911's on our side. Anyone else have any plans like this?

Only if I had no one to leave to and I feared they would be destroyed if not with me. I would want someone to enjoy my favorite gun as much as I did. Maybe have an album and journal.

I certainly would not like to remove my 1911 from the pool of gun folks. I hope that one of my family members would like to keep it, use it, and then pass it on again. The 1911 isn't like a family dog, they will outlive all of us.

my vote is for a small book, filled with photos, specs of all my firearms. perhaps, a few hunting stories ive told added.. id hope my wife, kids, or someone would be happy shooting my guns knowing they were mine, well cared for, accurate... and will be for them as well.

I don't ant to be buried with my guns. They would eventually be stolen, or they would rust/decay into nothing.
My guns will be passed along to my family. The ones that are centimental will be passed down wih a note saying if they sell it, I will haunt them until the day they die. :D

Cremation for me , My kids have alrady taken claim to what guns are they want . The only problem will be the NFA items I have as they are in my name and not in a trust. Guess those could be sold to a class 3 for mega $$$$ :)

More than likely the mortician or the ones who cover you up and replant the grass would end up with the gun. I guess Id chose to let my family have them and do with whatever they want with them. I wanna be turned into chum and dumped in the cook inlet. save the money for the funeral and casket.

Ashes to ashes dust to dust me an mine know dad just has to go back to the ocean.My guns will be passed down as the ones were passed to me +some all i ask them to do is add to the collection!!

Get cremated with a loaded gun and go out with several bangs.

The kids, grandkids, and great grandkids will have the guns. Havoc, you DO know that a class III item can be transferred in an inheritance with no transfer tax?

Me- I have directed that after they harvest whatever organs can help someone along, I am to be cremated.

My ashes are to be used to poison the wells of my enemies.
