    16 gauge Stevens single shot...well used but made many memories with it. Ducks, squirrels, rabbits. I was 11 years old in 1972! Still have it...have not shot it in decades. Ha ha.

    Single shot jc Higgins. Shot that for first half of the season and then switched over to model 37 ithaca bottom eject. Both were borrowed from family members. Ducks were point system(greenheads 20 points) and there were tons more mallards back then.

    Winchester Model 1400 20 Gauge and I believe it had a 3” Chamber. I bought it the Summer of my 11th Birthday and paid for it with money earned from picking Tomatoes.

    Used Mossburg 12G 500 AT with a 30” full choke barrel. Received it from my folks as a graduation present from 8th grade. At the time I was just starting to hunt with my brother; mainly quail & dove. Didn’t kill a lot in those days. Gun was to big for me, and choke was probably to tight.
    Still have it in the safe as a back up, back up, back up gone. Should probably let it go......

    BTW I should have kept it but the thing was butt ugly. I bought it at Howard’s in Warren, AR. I looked them up on gun broker last night, man it was ugly. The summer of my 14th or 15th birthday, I bought a Remington 788 .243 with a Tasco 4X Scope. It was also butt ugly but very accurate. I should have never sold it either. I know the .243 has diminished in popularity but it is still a great intermediate range deer stand rifle with zero recoil.
