A Winchester 52 I was shamed into sending to a cousin. Belonged to my Grandfather and after he passed my family wound up with a few of his guns. I kept 2 and sent the others to my male cousins, that have since acted like we don't exist. Wish I has never given in and sent them the guns.

Nostalgia wise, I'd have to go with the levers, accuracy with the bolts, but for all around versatility it would be the 10/22!

This Mossberg 44B(b) was made between 1938 and 1941, and has been in my family since new. It was at our cottage in Ontario; I learned to shoot on it, as did four generations of us. In the 1960's it was relegated to the boathouse year-round, and fell on hard times ... lots of scrapes and gouges in the wood; rust everywhere; front and rear sights broke off and missing. Even the red and green safety indicators vanished.

Before my family gun mentor died a few years ago, he gave what was left to me, asking only that I refinish the wood and get it shooting again. Lots of rubbing the metal with oil and bronze wool saved the original bluing; stripped the wood, sanded and refinished; and I found NOS sights and even the safety indicators. Yes, that is the original wood: Today, it would be exhibition grade walnut.

Now it's ready to teach another four generations of lucky first-time shooters.

Colt .22 Lightning. Fun, quite little shooter for a 120 + yo gun.
