Excellent inheritance that you will treasure through the years. I would do some research on each item and this way you will learn and appreciate what you have.

It's heartening to hear such a fine collection is going to a good steward. Grandpa would be proud.

That means a lot sir, I like to think he’d be proud of me for tying to learn as much possible about them. They certainly are my prized possessions.

Glad to see Grandpa didnít sell it but passed it on. Iím faced with a similar situation. Diagnosed with Cancer and owning over 100 guns. I have twin sons and two Grandchildren. My dilemma is trying to figure out whom gets what without causing a dispute or hard feelings. My high dollar items will definitely go to who will keep it and not sell. My sporting rifles and common handguns will go to who I know has absolutely no interest in firearms and will sell.

Wow I’m so sorry to hear that sir, I hope your sons and grandsons cherish your guns. Sadly right after he passed most of his entire collection was sold at auction. Cloth, helmets, daggers swords etc. I’ll share some pictures of what sold. If the symbols of the third reich are not aloud or offend anyone I apologize in advance.

Az, feel free to leave me all your high dollar items. I promise I will NOT sell them. Dilema solved!!😉
Cancer-thing sucks, though...sorry about that!

My dilema is I have a collection that is growing by the year, but no one to leave them to. My only son will get all my guitars and amps...everything else, really...but not my guns. Unfortunately he has a Class 4 felony for getting caught at a party with Ecstasy and will never be allowed now to legally own firearms.

Breaks my heart that I cannot share my passion with him.

Collection

Very nice collection. Do any of those firearms have interesting stories?
To me that's the joy in receiving things from relatives. My mother was a dietician in the US Army at the end of WWII. She was stationed at a VA hospital in Augusta, Georgia. She got to play in a bridge tournament held at Margaret Mitchell's house (author of Gone with the Wind). At the end of the tournament Margaret Mitchell gave her a vase for being on the winning team. My daughter now has the vase and will cherish always due to the love of her grandmother and her love for Gone with the Wind. No way to authenticate, but fun none the less.
From my grandfather I inherited a break open Iver Johnson .22 revolver. More sentimental value as it was the first firearm I ever shot.

Have him see a lawyer about getting the felony off his record. Most states have a procedure for that.

I sadly do not as he passed away before he could share stories of how he came into possession of it. He was only a collector and did not serve and I’m not sure if he was ever able to get the story. Thank you though. Sentimental value is the best value.

Well at least in VA if he keeps his nose clean and doesnt eff up again he can petition to get his firearms rights back and there are lawyers that specialize in helping folks through the steps of getting their rights restored both voting and firearms.

He had good taste in firearms.
Remember, some people have a collection of guns and some people have a gun collection.
Those are the latter.
Never store any of them in their or a leather holster.

Thanks, Walt. Actually it was a Class 6 (the lowest in Arizona). If he would have completed his Community Service they would have dropped it to a Misdemeanor, but he decided it wasn't important enough. Stupid kids, man. He doesn't realize how bad this is gonna haunt him when he's older...unless he's gonna be a "club promoter" for the rest of his life.

I still love him...but DAMN, son...use your head.
