.270 Winchester
.22 ?
.38 special
WW2 Kbar Marine Knife
Old style police night stick
An Education

My father was born dirt poor, and this had a big impact on the rest of his life. My father worked two and three jobs and even found time to get a degree in criminal justice from PITT. He was always was working. It was his way to make a better life for his family. I appreciate it but I didn't see him much. When I did, often he was tired. He managed to take me fishing and hunting in what free time he had. He died when he was 56, far too young. He taught me that you should work hard to better your position in life. He also taught me that you shouldn't work so much that you miss time with your family. You can't get those moments back. He also taught me that you shouldn't work too hard that it kills you. He missed out on a lot in life.

I learned from him and I hope the lessons I've learned pay off. I watch what I eat. I exercise when I can. I spend time with my family. I stuck with school and got an education that permits me to work less and make more. In other words work smarter not harder. I intend to enjoy my life and my family. My father made all of this possible at great cost.

My grandfather, my dad’s dad, passed away before I was born. A dozen years later and just a short time before my grandmother passed away, she gave my dad a journal kept by his father. My father has since passed the journal along to me with my grandfather’s old Winchester model 12. The journal has been such an incredible thing for me and has provided a way for me to get to know an amazing man whom I never had the opportunity to meet. My grandfather ran a large dairy farm and when his sons were old enough to work the farm, he also worked as a hard rock miner and broke horses. My grandfather was not an educated man, but had a real knack for eloquently describing thoughts, sights, and situations in such great detail that I could see it in my mind as I read his words. He would often describe experiences he had with his family and it was really remarkable for me to read things he wrote specifically about my father. He often talked about how his family was his greatest treasure and everything he did was to provide a good life for them. He talked a lot about the outdoors and his love of remote areas and wildlife and how he looked forward to hunting each fall with his sons. My grandfather exemplified hard work and sacrifice. I’ll admit that I’m not very good at keeping one, but we should all probably write down impactful experiences that we have so that our progeny might have something to get to know us by after we’re gone.

I never met my great grandaddy, but sometimes I feel like I kinda knew him when I go out hunting with his old guns.

The two things that mean the most to me are my maternal grandfather's old pocket knife and my paternal grandfather's .410 that he bought just for his oldest grandson when he was just getting old enough to shoot and now his oldest grandson cherishes that gun.

I am the youngest grandchild on my fathers side, all my cousins are old enough to be my parents. My dads oldest brother, forgoing his own children, gave me my Grandfathers '97 Winchester which he bought new back in the early '30s. The guns history is written on a piece of paper under the butt plate. It's the very first thing I show someone who hasnt seen my guns yet. My grandfather passed in 1966, I never had the opportunity to meet him, but I feel the connection every time I hold that gun.

My parents are pretty young still, and my dad's parents are in their 70's; so I haven't gotten much yet in the way of physical objects. One old saddle from my grandmother. I do use my dad's .270 and have pretty much claimed it as my own for deer hunting. My dad did pass down the love of hunting and being outdoors. He taught me how to sit patiently, to be persistent, taught me how to bait my hook, find morels, clean and eat everything we killed. I can change my own oil and tire; the list goes on. I'm sure glad he taught me not to be a sissy girl, I'm pretty happy I have the hobbies I do thanks to my dad.

My father never hunted much. My grandfather on the other hand was a devote outdoorsman. But unfortunately he drowned in a boating accident when I was 4 years old. So I never got to know him. I searched high/low to find old pictures memos or anything I could about his hunting days. Nothing. L&L that's great to have that journal. Very cool! I do have granddaddy old 1100. 12 gauge. Some neat old pictures of waterfowl. & the outdoors. I keep a journal for a few years. Noting hunts. Who,what killed, where at. A few pictures. But haven't done for a while. From reading this think I am going to make an effort to write a few lines this season. Thanks!

That's a great gift. All most people have are some old photos and some stories if they're lucky. It was my mother's father that got my father into hunting.

What's cool is that, while it was not passed down in the normal meaning of the word, but every day I go duck hunting I am hunting in a fishing boat owned by my grandfather, then my great uncle, and now it's my duck boat. I remember fishing with my pap in this boat when I was very young. He bought it when I was 2. He sold it to my great uncle when I was maybe 10 who I went fishing with quite a lot in this boat. Then I bought it from him when I was around 16 and have had it ever since and used it just this morning.

I need to remember to take more pictures. I have a few pictures hunting with my dad before he became disabled. I hunted with an old guy for several years before he passed away. I don't have one single picture of him. Lots of pictures of ducks and other things while we were hunting together, but none of us together :sad:

I have a Old Savage 12 Gauge bolt action im refinishing now that was gpaws, I ruined it in my youth with camo tape left on for years. A ted willams lever action single shot .22 Gpaw bought from Sears a LONG time ago, I refinished it also. Sure they have little value except I know I can kill stuff with them just as gpaw did. My dad has passed down a couple of wingmasters to me that were gpaws also. Dad is still hunting with me and I can tell just like when he seen me pull out the wingmaster in Canada for a upland hunt he loves watching me enjoy what he did when grandpa gave them to him as I will do for my son...

They are worth little to nothing, But their value is priceless....

My grandfather had passed before I was born and my grandma has been passing along things from him to me over the years. She is about to move into a retirement home in the next week or so and I went over there yesterday to help her out. She gave me a truckload of things to take with me. Two things I took yesterday was a Mauser pistol my grandfather brought back from WWII Germany with the original nazi holster and an extra magazine.

And a marlin bolt action 22. I shot both of them yesterday and everything is good. I have his old saltwater fishing tackle as well which is some nice rods that he had custom made and penn no. 9s that I have had completely gone through and redone. My dad gave me his first shotgun, a Belgium Browning A5. My great uncle gave me a miniature duck decoy wall display that is pretty sweet.
