My first rifle I ever shot belonged to my Grandpa. His father bought it for him when he was 12 years old 100 years ago! And now it is mine and in excellent condition for it's age. A little finish wear but mechanically it is 100%. It is mine now and I try to shoot a few rounds through it each year just in honor of Grandpa. He was responsible for the appreciation I have for shooting, hunting and fishing. Unfortunately he has been gone now 51 years God Bless Him! The importance is not that we do great things but what we leave behind. I only hope that my children, grandchildren and now my great grandson can say the same of me!
It is a Winchester 1890 Hex Barrel Pump in 22 Cal. Short. There was no such a thing as a 22 Long or Long Rifle in that day!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
-- John F. Kennedy
