Default Burried with your gun?

Many people used to be burried with their sword. Why not guns?

...and which one would you like to be burried with or not?

First thought of this, but if it were today, I think I'd like to be burried with my two Ruger Vaqueros. Additionally, when my CCW permit expires, they better leave me be or I'll haunt them.

I wouldn't want to take them all. Plenty of nice guns to leave above ground. The question is if you would like to take maybe one. In the bigger picture, the guns return to the elements too and even under best conditions couldn't last a couple thousand years. Since the guns will perish too, why not keep your fav with your bones?

I would probably take all my firearms to my grave since I do not have children, and neither does my brother. Who knows that might change in the future, but as for right now I would definately take 'em all with me.

Nope...they all get passed on to the kids. I have a spreadsheet with all my guns, serial numbers, optics, etc. I am also keeping track of who likes what.

I'm donating my body to science so they can figure out how my liver has lasted this long. My kiddos will get all of my guns.

I still have guns that belonged to my granddads, my dad, and one of my uncles. Opening day of dove season, my dad, who passed away in 95, went dove hunting with me. So to speak.

I plan that my kids, grandkids, and possibly great grandkids will have my guns. Way I look at it, so long as they think well of me when they pick one up, I'll live forever.

Want to put something in my coffin with me? An entrenching tool would be a nice going away present. Possibly some asbestos undies........
