Sounds like you have a great Dad! Those are nice weapons. When I was young I also had one of them. The 22 and 22 mag is a nice combination. Can not remember what I did with it? Probably traded it for something new I wanted. But enjoy that and for some advise! Never get rid of it! Since Dad gave it to you it means so much more than just a normal weapon. And pass it on to your children in the future.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
I second the advice to never sell it. I have wanted to get a Single Six with both cylinders for each of my two boys since they were born. Haven't found them that I can afford yet though, or maybe they are asking too much for them.
