    ....here on the "dark side of town" several years back and I had a guy offer me $800.00 cash for that old gun.
    When I told him a little about it's history he just smiled and said "I reckon there ain't no chance of buyin' it but....thanks for the story."
    I had a Stevens Favorite .22 that was like new when I was a kid. Bought it from another kid for $5.00 and sure wished I'd hung on to it. I killed a lot of Squirrels with it.

    Yep!....there I go....ramblin' on and on......:sp

    Dan, that is a sweet gun. I remember you saying that the barrels were paper thin. Too bad you couldn't shoot some low pressure 2 1/2 inchers out of it.

    I have my first .22 still and always will. Its a Daisy Legacy. Pretty cool little gun.

    I enjoy reading threads filled with memories of hunts and adventures from long ago.

    I completely understand, guess we all own a thing or two or ten that one couldn't put a monetary value on and would be considered priceless. I traded the first gun I ever bought with my own money (lawn mowing money) many years ago. I also regret that transaction, so much so I have not sold or traded a gun since. I have added to my collection but none have departed and they won't until it's time to hand em down to someone else that will appreciate them!

    guns to my 3 Sons which include 3 Browning A-5's, 2 Winchester 94's in 30.30, 1 Marlin 336 in 30.-30, 1 Marlin Semi-Auto in .22, 2 Remington 510 Targetmaster .22's, 1 AYA SxS .410 Double with AA grade Stocks (beautiful Turkish Walnut Stump Wood), 1 Mossberg 20 Ga Bolt Action with a Vari-Choke on the Barrel, my Dad's old Single-shot .410 (Springfield Arms) and a Stevens Single Shot 12 Ga.
    I always wanted a Remington 870 Wingmaster in 16 Ga. but never could talk myself into buying one. Seems that my wallet got kinda "squeaky" right after I passed 70.;)

    ....and gonna ask her to do pics of my 16 Single Shot and Stevens 311A
    SxS 20 Ga. Even though I've owned quite a few good guns these two are STILL my main go-to guns.
