I chose my favorite guns by what I grew up with.
A single shot shotty, a single shot 22 and a
colt revolver.

I'm sure a lot of you are the same way.
What ever dad, uncle or grand dad
taught you to shoot with is still your
favorite.
At least you old guys like me.

When I was growing up the only
autos were 1911 45s left over
from WW11. But there were a lot
of old colt wheel guns out there

Most of you younger guys have had
a lot to choose from so your favorites
can change like your underwear.

We older guys had bolt action 30-06
lever action 30-30 and single shots.

No matter how fancy the newer guns
get or how much ammo they can
spit down range I'll still remember
dad saying take your time, breathe
and squeeze the trigger.

Old habits are hard to break. Cars
are the same way. Your favorite is
probably the car you got from dad.

That's the way it was back in the day.

I think my buddies dad used to have one just like it when we were growing up. We would take it out when he was at work. That thing took some abuse

My favorite guns

were loaded up and hauled off the day after grandpa died. We all know who did it and if I ever see the son of a bitch, you guys will probably never hear from me again.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

but some how a 4th person found them.
Was seen hauling things away during the
funeral

who will loot and burn during a riot.
The general population sux
That's why I live on a farm away
from everyone.
If someone finds me dead throw me
in the storm cellar and lock it up
