004.JPG From the left; U.S. M1917 still in .30-06 and original metal. Model 70 Coyote in 300 WSM. Model 70 in .30-06, this rifle is a first year push feed (1964 my sisters birth year) with the serial number having my birth day, month and year in it in order. It is being rebarreled with a Shilen in .280 Remington as a gift to our older brother. The last is a Model 670 in .243. The scopes and mounts, the rifles that I mount them on, have been removed for the rifles yearly take down and complete after hunting season cleanings. As a rule I do a light clean/inspection/lube quarterly through out the year.

Very nice!  I have two Winchesters.  One is a shotgun, of no sentimental value or of any significance.   The other is a 1950 lever action 30.30.   It was my Grandfather's deer hunting rifle.   He died before I was born and it is the only thing of his that I own.   While likely not worth much if it were for sale, I'd sell my blood and a kidney before I'd part with it.

I have nothing of my dads or granddads.
That will not happen for my children. They may only get firearms, some motorcycles, pictures and a lot of, I hope, good memories.
Some of the firearms may have some collector or market/resale value but all of my firearms are tools. They have dents, dings and show signs of usage but they are neat and function very well and good.

I have only daughters, but they know my affinity for firearms and I believe they will keep my guns when I die.  I used to "collect" for the sake of collecting, however, as I've aged, I no longer subscribe to that philosophy.   If I can't use it in the next few years, I don't see any reason to buy it. 

With that being said, I am contemplating buying a "mate" for the Winchester 30-30.  I would like to have two, so each of my daughters gets one.  True, only one will have sentimental value to me, but hopefully, the two will have sentimental value to my daughters.

We too have an all daughter family (4,10 & 12 years, at 55 I started late with a beautiful & younger wife). And we shoot, hunt and do a lot of things together.

I have seen some decent to down right nice pre 64 Winchester Model 94's at Gunauction.com
From one gun guy with daughters to another if I should come across a nice deal do you mind if I PM you?
