gifts from my dad

sakodudesakodude Senior MemberPosts: 3,891 Senior Member
Made a trip to New mexico and brought back some of my dad's guns and other stuff. Bitter sweet in that it's sad I no longer get to share range time with the man who gave me this passion. Sweet in that I now have the opportunity to put this back into action.


Let's see what you eagle eye's can pick out.

    Wow! Tons of cool stuff there! Love the 336t's and the 94's
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Great collection, Tom. I'm sure that as good as they are, the sentimental value far outweighs all else.

    I have a few of my dad's guns, and they are a prize part of my collection.

    I see what looks like a Marlin lever gun with a semi-pistol grip that I'd love to spend some ammo on.

    I spy some military bolt actions that would be the first ones I would pick up and look at. Hope you got a safe with all that too.

    You're lever gun rich for sure now! See a couple mausers, 10/22, marlin take down 22.

    Bittersweet for certain. A nice collection.

    I see a double barrel shotgun with gold colored triggers, what looks like a Remington BDL, and a book about Sharps rifles, but can't spot one on my phone.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    I've picked out the 5 lever guns on the right. So when will they be headed my way? :jester:

    Not the best of ways to get them, but I'm certain they will have a good home.
  • WeatherbyWeatherby Senior Member Posts: 4,953 Senior Member
    Some neat stuff brother.
    The torch is in your hands now.
    What do I need to be on the lookout for ?

    Quite true. There is some really good stuff and some that most of us would over look but it was all his so it's golden to me.

    In truth I brought home enough reloading stuff with these I'm fairly certain I need not ever buy another handgun bullet in my lifetime.
    I now have all of his casting equipment and another 2-3 hundred pounds of lead alloy to boot.
    I should probably be asking what you need instead:tooth:

    The double is a Bakial coach gun with hammers in 12ga that he used along with the 1897 clone next to it for his SASS guns. I never have fired ether so looking forward to trying them out. The BDL looking rifle is actually a 300 Win on a Springfield action he built many years ago. The sharps did not come home this trip.

    Mosin nagant 91/30, #4MkI Enfield, Swiss K-31, and a Mitchell Mauser. Somewhere in there is a bubba'd M/N M38 as well.
    Did bring a safe home as well. Truck was squatting so much aircraft complained about our brights:jester:

    That's a 35 Rem , it wears a very early no batteries required red dot, AimPoint I think. Kind of funky looking but it works well.

    edit to add a correction, it's a weaver qwik point R-1 not aimpoint.

    Talking about your sqwating truck, I was thinking I don't envy you at moving time when I first saw the pic.

    Maybe Hoppes has gallon jugs :tooth:

    35 Rem? Waaaay cool!

    You got reloading gear for the 300 mag?

    This one actually make the 3rd 35 Rem. I already had a Marlin and my Rem 141.
    I have everything I need for the 300 Win, probably duplicate dies actually since I had a set and now I have his.

    Figured you would catch that. The S&W book rests by my chair for quick reference. the rest are waiting for me to get my cave in order to find their place on the library shelf.

    I see a lot of great memories for you in that pic.
    I also see that you have somehow managed to solve your storage problem by hanging the guns from the ceiling ..............but I cant see how you did it.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
