The only thing I have of my grandfathers, is a 1949 Craftsman belt sander. Still works like a charm. The only other family heirlooms I have are, My great grandfathers ivory cufflinks and a 1881 Winchester 38-40 that was his. He bought it brand new from a hardware store, somewhere down south. Bert gave me an estimate value on it, which almost gave me another heart attack. All of the items will be my son's one day. Here is a peak at the rifle. I won't bore ya with all the pictures, but she is in excellent condition, and has the original cleaning kit that goes in the stock, and an original box of ammo, that was never fired. I have shot this gun about three times. Twice at the range and once at a deer, that I killed in PA with it.
I have my Grandfathers .38 Army Special bought in 1911, the year my Father was born. I never had the honor to meet him. He was in the Spanish American War.
