    To me, it is my fathers 1911. It was his Grandpa's and before dad left for Desert Storm great grandpa gave it to him. It is a WW2 1911 and still shoots amazingly. Great Grandpa bought it when the military was getting rid of their surplus. It was his favorite and it is dads favorite.
    One day, it will be passed to me and then to my children.

    What about you? What gun means the most to you?

    An old S&W Mod 15-2 that was given to me by her father. It allowed me to have a gun in the house without her being able to say anything.

    From there, it went down hill.

    I have since convinced her to let me buy a handgun for every birthday. Now I have to live until I am 104.

    I would have to say my AR, not because of any sentimental value but because my father has helped me so much with the build and him and I spend alot of time at the range on and squirrel shooting trips with out AR's.

    Well

    1. My father's 1974 Remington 1100 (20ga)...he saved up all he could when he was young to get this shotgun because it was just like his grandpas. However, he didnt have quite enough. But his grandmother, who saved up her own $ to make dresses and other clothes was dying of cancer and she gave him the rest of that $, shortly after buying the gun, she died....I will get this gun when he dies (its awesome to be the first born) and my children will get it when I die....and i must say...he said that if i ever sold it his ghost would come back and kick my a$$ black and blue..

    2. My Browning 425 12ga...first gun I ever purchased completely on my own

    3. My great grandfathers browning citori superposed....he used it to hunt, my grandpa used it to hunt, my father used it and now i use it for pheasant hunting...ill never let that thing go.

    I have two. Number one is my grandfathers 1890 Winchester Hex Barreled 22 Short Only that his father bought him when he was 12 years old. And my grandfather's Fox 20ga. Sterlingworth Double Barreled Full and Full Shotgun he gave me. After I graduated from the H&R Single Barrel I hunted with the Sterlingworth when I was young.

    There were no guns in my family to pass down to me. So it would have to be my fifty two year old 1927 Sistema Colt. I bought it as a project and brought it back from the dead.

    My post war Marlin 39A Golden Mountie Carbine. My stepfather bought it when he came home from WW2 and I used it as often as possible when growing up.

    He gave it to me about 5 years ago and it holds a place of honor in my heart and my safe.

    After that my stock 1932 Colt Commercial Gov't Model. The fit and finish of that pistol is not matched today by anyone making 1911's.
