    This may not be in the right place, but its not specific to any type of firearm, so mods if its in the wrong place, please let move it. Thanks.

    Show off your firearms you've inherited from, or been given by, family. Rifles, shotguns, handguns, Gatling guns, plasma guns... All of 'em!

    I'll start. Both guns were given to me by my grandpa. The top is a good ole Ruger 10-22. The bottom is a J.C. Higgins model 103.18 also in .22.

    Sorry they're a little dirty. I don't shoot them all that often and the house is impossible to keep dust free because of where we live. They're wall hangers presently. Also sorry the pictures didn't turn out great.

    I can't show them, they are inherited so they don't exist. Officially.

    It's a .32 and I've shot it a couple times. I don't know how to take it apart to clean it and to be honest, it's not all that fun to shoot.

    Interesting. I bet you could find a YouTube video on disassembling it, if you were so interested.

    I'm sure I can. I had a bad experience once and I'm afraid to take this gun apart for fear I won't be able to get it back together.

    That WOULD be a pretty bad thing.

    Oh well, I guess guns don't necessarily have to be shot to be enjoyed.

    Nice guns. They all look like they've been well-maintained, too.
