    Family Heirloom Thread

    Do you have a family heirloom you would like to share! Post it here!

    Recently received this from a family member, One of Granddads' Saturday night specials..

    Arminius revolver 7 shot HW5, He paid a whopping $49.95 for it on 11/18/68

    Comes with a box of 32's I would guess the gun has never been fired?

    If you have something you want to share then post up! Thanks

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Grandpa's hand-built double barrel 12ga from Eibar, Spain. And a damascus double, which I believe is German. I'll have to get pics.

    I have my Dad's old single shot Springfield .22 bolt action. He used it to shoot rabbits to feed the family back in the 1930s. He "refinished" the stock with motor oil or something because he didn't have any linseed oil. Bore shines like a new dime, still shoots good groups.

    No gun, but my dad passed me down a Rolex president day date. I don't really wear it, but plan to hand it down to my daughter or son when they get older.

    My grandfather gave my mom this pistol when she started commuting to Southeastern University in the mid 60's. Understand we lived near Enon and it was all back roads to Hammond.
    She already had six of us and decided to earn an education degree while teaching part time. Didn't leave a lot of time for child rearing. I think my siblings and I would be considered free range kids by todays standard. Luckily we lived on a 20 acre far, three miles to our nearest neighbor and no telephone.
    I'll never know the back story on this pistol as I was only ten when paw paw passed.
    My grand paw opened a bar in Covington right after prohibition ended. It was called Charlie's and was very close to the courthouse. It had the customary pool tables, poboys and fresh shucked oysters.
    Could never dig a damn hole in the long driveway at our farm as it had an bullet proof layer of oyster shells.
    He sold the bar to one of his sisters and her husband which was renamed Nathan's Poyboy's. This was next to the Gibson St. bar. Some of you locals may remember it.
    Charlie also owned little rental homes so the manner in which he acquired this pistol is only limited by your imagination.
    Those lowly rental homes he built are now known as Lee Lane. Your wife will love you for taking you to shop in the quant boutigue shops lining the street. Who would have imagined that.
    If you visit Smith's Hardware and view the museum you will find a cypress pirogue among the display. My gramps had open range cattle around Enon and would haul the calves out of the river basin in it when the Bogue Chitto flooded.
    I used to sneak this pistol out and shoot it. I could never hit the side of a barn with it.
    The marking are almost buffed of of it, It must have been a rusty POS. It's been re-chromed. The handgrips are not damaged and probably worth more than the pistol.
    Here she is my friends. To some it's just a used up pistol but it is so much more to me.
    I'm a pistol packing vegetarian. I believe in keeping my options open.
