    What's your guns story!

    Did you buy a Covid gun? Grandpas gun, Dads old side-by-side, new gun every season?
    I bought a Benelli 18 years ago,
    Sold My 10 BPS "goose" gun, 15 or so years ago.
    Both which replaced a Smith and Wesson 1000, that was just worn out.
    Before that was a Ithaca 37AMy first waterfowl gun bought in 1971. Loved that first gun!

    Model 12 dated early 60's for decades, then a vinci the last 10 yrs. I had Riley put chokes in the model 12. I have my dad's 12 SBS but don't shoot it as its not steel friendly. We learned on a 410 bolt, and 20 ga SBS stevens, but both those got stolen in my teens.

    My favorite gun, my 3" Rem 11-87, that I bought new in 1994.
    I've replaced a few components, but she's still shootin' just fine.

    Versamax is going on 6 years.

    Then I got a 12 gauge and 20 Wingmaster as well as an 870 that all see time. 12 gauge Wingmaster is 4 years old, 20 is a 60’s gun that was most likely a bunny and grouse gun before I got it by the looks of it. 870 is a year old.

    My main gun is a SBEII I bought Nov of 06. If I'm shooting a 20ga its a 391 I bought lightly used probably at least 16-17 years ago. Love that gun but rarely get to shoot it anymore, didn't hunt with it at all last year.

    Gun I use most is a circa '90s HK imported 20ga Benelli Montefeltro. Second most is a 16ga Model 12 that shares my 1950 vintage.
