    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........:p

    there is one gun I want to laid to rest with the is my 91/30 Mosin Nagant, it's my go too rifle for camping, hunting really everything I have two of them so one will be passed down with the rest of my guns and the other will be barried with me along with my hunting knife. Also several hundred rounds of ammo... I don't know what will happen when I die no ones does but I'd rather be armed just in case.

    well you know we're all gonna turn into zombies eventually, do the people we left behind really want all of us staggering around locked & loaded??? :p

    i don't have any kids so yet so for now i would take 2:

    my daisy 2202 .22LR. it was my first gun. it's not worth anything & it's nice & compact so it'll fit nice right next to me

    also my FB Radom Vis 35. it was my first centerfire handgun & since it's original owner more than likely dropped dead with it in his hand it might be fitting to return it to the earth.

    I would rather keep them in the family so that other people can enjoy them as much as I do.

    W-O-C, if you like, I know some folks that can take the ashes, and load them up in some 12 g hulls mixed with #7 1/2 birdshot, and we can take you out for a last day of skeet shooting...........:)

    No! They'll all be passed on so they can continue causing fear and mayhem among the uninitiated. :D

Im passing them on under one condition and that is they never sell them , I want them passed on down the family even if they dont have kids they may have nieces and newphews around to pass them on to .

    It wouldn't do any good; at least one of my nephews would dig it up. I have no kids or plans to make any on purpose. One of my nephews just fathered his first; i spose we will have to see if the little lady likes shooting in about three or four years. Knowing her father though, she will probably be more into fly-fishing and bow-hunting.

    I am not sure because i only have one (my daughter) and she may not be into guns. If she is then she can have them all but she would have to promise that if she had to get rid of them, she must keep at least one of my choice.

    Well, then that 'last day of skeet shooting' would also be my first. I've never shot skeet. :D
