Colt Police Positive Special in 32-20.  Manufactured in 1917.  Found it in my grandmother house when she passed.  It didn't have any grips but I found some reproductions.

Remington 1100 my parents gave me for my 16th birthday. The only gun, they ever gave me…

I'm not positive on the age (guessing 60's or 70's?) but I inherited a High Standard 22lr Sport King? from my grandmother when she passed.  It has a sweet trigger that is far superior to my Kraken or Ruger Mark 2 Target that has been worked over.  It has two magazines but one is worn out and doesn't run 100%.  I need to pick up replacements for shooting and set aside the original magazines for collecting.

My oldest CZ is my 40P.  It also has a very nice trigger but that is because I worked it over with some cajun and custom spice :).

Cheers,
Toby

This probably isn’t worthy of this thread, but I have a nickel West German Sig Sauer P220 with a “KA” (‘91) date code.



(Why is this picture so BIG??)

My oldest working handgun is a CZ 75 B .40 SW.
I purchased it new in 1995, or thereabouts.
No target is too large or to close to miss.

My oldest is probably either a CZ 24 or a Kongsberg Model 1914 (Kongsberg “Colt”)

1971 CZ VZOR-70. Only chrome one I've ever seen. Someone's project obviously, but it's pretty awesome.

Colt Police Positive 32 -20. Sold to me about 1975 for $15.00 by someone passing through town for gas money. I didn't ask him where he stole it. ;D

Well I just have a statement and that is for those of you that have any firearm that was left to you from a loved one when they passed, that is something really special and I hope everyone of you cherish it.
