Relics from your past

I just mentioned in another thread about a 100 yr old skillet that I have from my grandmother. That got me to thinking, what do you have that has been handed down, that you hold dear to your heart? Along with the skillet, I have my grandmothers first school slate, my great grandmother's pocket watch(still runs perfect), and a dinner bell that has been in my family since around Ohio statehood, and my dad's toy train from his childhood. Most of these things don't hold much monetary value, but they are priceles to me

I have my grandfathers single barrel shotgun, my father's Winchester model 12 shotgun, my uncle's 455 Webley (1918) he brought home from WWII, and my brother in law's Combat Masterpiece revolver he carried in Vietnam as an AF Para Rescue man (PJ). I added an M-9 Desert Storm Commemorative and an M-4 rifle to be handed down to our kids.

Wow, that just reminded me of my grandfather's side by side double barrell shotgun. It has the old "twisted steel" barrells made for black powder. I have a few ration coupons from WWII, and a black, silk lined, hand embroidered jacket my uncle brought back from Vietnam for me. I was 2 when he came back in '67. It has dragons down both sleeves, a tiger on the front, and a map on the back with the places he was stationed. I'm going to have to dig that out, haven't seen it for a few years.

I have my great granddad's Remington Model 12 Pump .22 LR. My son is the fifth generation to shoot it. Still shoots straight as an arrow after all these years and i would guess thousands of rounds...

"Damascus Twist" was how they made shotgun barrels out of welded steel wire.
