Good looking boy Cason. Enjoy them they will test your patience but they are worth every second of it.
I hope someday someone remembers this old dog with kindness and gives me to a puppy.

I appreciate it. The plan right now is to use the 20ga 1100 that I started with. It was my mother's gun so it fits a youth well. With my luck he'll want a benelli or a beretta

Smart lad.













Reckon he'll be so tickled to be shooting, it won't matter a lick. But the history of it being a family gun will mean more to him on down the road than being the current latest and greatest.

I gave up the Remington's for my benelli a while ago, and I'm sure there'll be a point where shooting his grandmothers gun may not be cool to him. However, I agree with Rick, one day he will be glad he got the chance.

The 1st gun I duck hunted was my Grandfathers L C Smith 410 sxs, graduated to my Grandmothers Marlin Mod. 44 20 ga., my Grandmother almost got an honorary membership to the gun club for taking 2 birds with 1 shot on the wing, however back in that time the club by laws stated "NO WOMEN'. Used it until the lead shot prohibition, I killed a lot of birds with those guns. I still have the Marlin, the 410 was stolen, along with its mate, an L C Smith 12 GA, both field grade, no SN's on them & a Browning Sweet 16, they left all the other guns, cash & cameras. Never recovered, I did manage to find a Sweet 16, older, and in better condition for my Dad. Dad was HAPPY, his FIL gave him the 1st gun!

I still have the Marlin, My BIL's ex wife demanded the Sweet 16 after our fathers passing since it had the most value, NO big deal, I shot it once, I wasted a lot of shots, give me a pump gun over an auto loader any day.
"I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess. " Red Green.

I tried it, it, it did not work!
