Whats your most cherished firearm and or knife.

One thing we all have in common, we are all passionate about our guns. Some guns more than others. Maybe you could share your most very favorite firearm and knife, and the story as to why it means so much to you. This doesn't have to be your best, or most expensive, just your favorite. The one your father or grandfather gave you, the one that saved your life, maybe a special gift from your wife. The story and the pictures would be great. Handgun or Rifle, One of each is fine if you have both. Knives are welcome also. Remember this can be any brand.

Probably my grandfathers 1873 Winchester 32-20, I was able to find out it was made in 1900. The gun was purchased new by my grandfather but my dad didn't know what year he bought it in.

I like most all of them. Nothing really stands out as being special to me.

Chuck, that is awesome. I have always wanted an older Winchester lever gun but never have the sparevdollars for one and the other toys. Neat piece of family history there.....

I think we have played this or a similar post before but since then I think my choice has changed! Don't have a pic right now cause it would require a safe unload. (maybe later)

Sometime after Mom and Dad were married in 1948 she bought him a Winchester Model 12 Pump Shotgun. I remember watching him clean and oil that shotgun and the smell of Hoppes #9 and gun oil, going with Dad, quail, rabbit, squirrel hunting. I don't know how old I was the first time he let me shoot it but I was a little fellow. Shot my first squirrel with that shotgun.
That will always be my favorite gun!

Probably my circa '78 Colt Govt Mk IV Series 70.... Was the first semi I carried after we evolved from revolvers. It was nickel when I bought it. You may have seen it posted here somewhere. Since, it evolved a couple different finishes. Still have it although my Kimbers out shoot it unfortunately. Still won't give it up though.

Here it is when I gold plated it.


Here it is before the last Cerakote next to my SOC.


Here it is as it is now with a Beat Down Cerakote and Punisher Comp. and Trijicon sights. Now she's more or less a safe queen.

My two favs in pic. The 3-screw I got from my father, so many memories come with it. The M19-4 was my first carry weapon.

A Model 1892 Winchester 22 pump. Belonged to my Great Uncle. As a young boy my mother and father would go to visit my great uncle on Sundays a couple of times a month. I was about 12 years old and that was the last place I wanted to go. I would rather be with my friends. My Great uncle would always buy a box of bullets and tell me his rifle didn't seem to be shooting right and asked me to go out into the woods or barn lot and shoot a box through it. I didn't realize he was trying to get me out of the adults hair so they could talk and not be bothered. On his death bed he gave me that rifle and I still have it.
Next a 1972 S&W Model 19 my wife bought me for our first Christmas, Just before I joined the Sheriff's Department. Still have both.

Dan, I'd love to see a picture of your 1892 Winchester pump if you could post one.

This was my fathers double barrel 4/10 he had since I was a kid. It was painted black and scratched up. My father had me refinish it for him years ago. My mother purchase it for him. The pocket knife was in his pocket when he passed away. He also used the 4/10 hunting. So it will always be my favorite.
