Sorry for your loss. I hope you got it all out of California quickly.
I am in the process of getting a Syren Over and Under shotgun but still shopping around.
Colt SAA from 1876 in 45 Colt. 4 clicks. All original except ejector. Colt letter sent to NYC.
Condolences on your loss. It hurts to think about what a family treasure you would have is he had opened up and given a history of each piece. But I understand as my father was in the Philippines and New Guinea during WWII and he never talked about it. I have his pup tent from then. It's complete (2 halves) and I don't know why as each soldier carried a half and 2 slept in a tent. Maybe being a supply Sgt had it's perks? I also have his **** cap and Ike jacket he wore home complete with the ruptured duck.
It’s sort of common for the Greatest Generation to not talk about what they witnessed or did in WWII.
I can certainly sympathize...I can’t even imagine what those brave souls went thru.

Very, very nice. Wouldn't you love to hear some of the stories that old boy could tell?
I had some great uncles that served in WWII. About 50 years ago I asked one of them about the war. I was maybe 10 years old. I was expecting stories of battles, where he was located, ect. He looked at me with sad eyes and said it was a horrible thing and I hope that you never have to go through anything like it. He patted me on the head and turned around and walked off. I've never forgot that. We, this country, this world, are blessed to have men and women like that.
Truly, the Greatest Generation.
Picked up this little lady (ok, so she's more like a STOUT fastpitch softball player) from my FFL today.
POF Edge in 6.5 Creedmoor w/magpul prs?, some kind of custom camo pattern, 20" barrel, and the absolute best trigger of any non-bolt and non-1911/2011 I've EVER felt. I'm buying a trigger gauge just because I'm dying to know exactly how many pounds it takes to fire.
I'm DYING to shoot this thing. It's so pretty I want to get it dirty.
I have to drive to Fort Worth @ 5 am tomorrow to sell a car, and then family stuff in Dallas in the afternoon, then family stuff here at home Sunday. God would understand if I go to the range instead of church Sunday, right? Problem is my I don't want to let my wife down. She already makes a lot of allowances for work, hunting, and competitions. She's a sweetheart, and I want to spend time with her when I don't have other actual obligations.
I feel like I'm 16 again, and have a girl who agreed to go out with me, but our schedules prevent it for 2 days.
First 4 pics are from the ad I bought it from, the rest are on our kitchen counter, right here by the Concho river here in San Angelo.
And yes, that IS a $25 caldwell bipod on there... just for pics. I ordered the Magpul bipod, and if I end up really liking shooting this thing, I'll probably buy my first 'real' (according to people with more taste than me) bipod and get an Atlas.
