Mossberg ad

My older daughter was born in 1969, making her the same age as you, Hamster. The first gun I ever gave her was a Charter Pathfinder. She still has it.

We got started a little later than you, my oldest boy is 18, younger boy is 13 and daughter is almost 10, they all live with me.

My 13 YO and I are the "gun nuts", we have an un-healthy intrest in guns (according to the ex and her spouse)

Anyhow, my kids can have all of my guns when I am gone, and I will see to it that they use them in a usefull manner, properly.

I have my grandpas 38/40, this gun I do not shoot, it is an antique, belonged to grandpa (who I never met, died before I was born) and belonged to my Dad, now it belongs to me and my son's and daughter and so on.

Pay it forward.

Ya'll hit a nerve

OK.
My grampa had an old Winchester gallery gun. 22 pump action.
This gun was always in the gunrack in the back window of his pickup truck.
He was a well to do individual. That gun was the only thing that he had that meant squat to me, He knew it. The rifle was promised to me by him and witnessed by my dad and aunts.
When Papa died, my oldest aunts husband grabbed all of the guns and hauled ass.
15 years ago.
No, I ain't over it and I won't get over it.
I hope the sumbitch rots in hell and the gun blows up on whoever ended up with it!
Piece of shit fuckers.

I found out years ago Robert Stack was very cool, when I first started learning how to skeet shoot. He taught me a few things. I told him one time I liked his acting. He immediately redirected the conversation back to shooting so I took the clue and never bugged him about it again. I wish we had a big name like Robert Stack or Charelton Heston as a spokesman again.

He is a pretty good spokesperson, don't you think? Chuck Norris is another...Ted Nugent.

Not positive about these as far as their public stance on guns, but public stance, but they personally own and shoot:

Alice Cooper
Ted Nugent
Damian Marley
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Karl Malone
http://www.nrawinningteam.com/9911/malone.html
Howard Stern
Val Kilmer
Milla Jovovich
Bruce Willis
Jonathan Davis (singer of the band 'KoRn')
Brock Lesnar
Hulk Hogan
Reba McEntire

.Nolan Ryan, Hall of Fame receiver and U.S. Representative Steve Largent, All-American quarterback and U.S. Representative J.C. Watts, Jr., Virginia Governor James Gilmore, best-selling author Tom Clancy, actors Tom Selleck and Brad Johnson, and, of course, Academy Award-winning actor and NRA President Charlton Heston.

Gary Graham. Not exactly a movie star but a long time TV actor. He played Ambassador Soval on Enterprise and was the star of a show called Alien Nation.

He does a promotional video for Front Sight.

http://www.frontsight.com/diamond-membership.asp

Geoffrey Lewis - among the last of the old-school character actors, whose face you'll recognize more readily than his name. Perhaps better-known as Juliette Lewis' father. Co-stars in the instructional video, A Woman's Guide to Firearms, alongside Lee Purcell and Gerald McRaney.

NOT SURE POSITIVELY ON THESE:

Conan O'Brien (finding this a bit hard to believe)
Kurt Russell
All members of Metallica
two other members of KoRn
rapper Jay-Z (and god knows how many others)
Axle Rose
Jennifer Garner from Alias.
Alicia Keys
Brett Michaels (Poison)
Fred Thompson

MORE:

Rick Schroeder
Jackie Mason.
Penn and Teller.
Lou Ferrigno is a very pro-gun. His favorite is the .50 Barrett
Gary Sinese
Adam Rodriguez: Eric Delko on CSI Miami
Hugh Laurie, the british star of House is pro gun
Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman and Josh Brolin
Peter Coyote
Keith & David Carradine

I am sure there are many more!!!

Still one of the best western actors alive.
The Sacketts got me started. Monte Walsh still plays often at my house.

Tom Selleck, man I wanted to be driving that damn 308 around Hawaii. I think his movie " Quigley Down Under" was one of my fav.

Tom Selleck would be very good in my opinion. Bruce Willis too. Alice Cooper, and Ted Nugent people are just afraid of, and the public (liberals) just think of them as crazy. Don't get me wrong, Uncle Ted is a good guy, a mans man. I'm talking from a political point of view. Howard Stern HELL NO, he's an ass, no one would take him serious.
Conan-No
Kurt Russell- Hell Yes
Val Kilmer- Doesn't have a John Wayne" type of reputation, he is a pussy! My wife met him and talked to him numerous times, she says he doesn't have it in him.
Lou Ferigno-he would be awesome except he's deaf or mostly deaf and people would not like to listen to him.
Too much typing gotta rest..................................

but funny... agree on the 6.. brother has one..and everytime we get together to go shooting im amazed at how accurate that puppy is..Believe it or not.. im long gun poor.. just got rid of a black powder (percusion 45) and out side of a couple three .22's dont have a long gun right now.. I started to buy an SMLE last fall, and wish i would have, like the surplus locker stuff. Since i shoot all pistols i don't want to get a lot invested in a rifle, but just WRONG to not have anything bigger than a .22. and living rural not real smart either..

Only another man would understand what that old rifle ment to you.. Pop died in 96, and his old piece rests in my nightstand.. We have guns all thru the house (no kids, and hi enough not to worry when the Gkids come by) but the one in the nightstand is the first one i would grab. and as any guy understands means more to me than any other gun i own.. Sorry pard, Guessing no way you could get it back huh.... Aunt know where he is..

I'm sorry you lost your grandpa's rifle. I'm 100% sure it still hurts and pisses you off completely. Don't even try to get over it.
When my grandpa died, my mother got his Smith & Wesson .44 Russian breaktop revolver that she learned to shoot on, and now I have it. Serial number 505. I got a factory letter on it from Roy Jinks, and keep the letter in the safe close to the gun.
One cousin got grandpa's shotgun, the other got his .22 rifle. Both of them still have their guns.
I have guns I really like a lot (not love), but nothing like the way I feel about Granddad's revolver.

Bullet

I just found an article about a stray bullet being found in a baby's
diaper on New Years Eve in Memphis this year.
Baby wasn't hurt. That's too damn close
