    Holiday gas station. Gone now, they were mini Wal-Mart's that sold gas. Like a 7/11 on steroids. It was an Ithica single shot lever action 22 model 49. Cost $18.

    Yes... I voted first.

    I'm from a long line of Southern traditions here... Guns, cars, truck, farm equipment, musical instruments, hunting dogs and (sometimes) stills are treasured and handed down items.... as it will be with my son someday.
