    Count your blessings. Those are part of the family, and should be loved and appreciated! I blessed my daughter with my Marlin 22 mag rifle for her 16th birthday. It means as much to her as it does to me.

    Those are some nice guns. I had a .22 rifle like that one. I don't know who made it but it was sold through J.C. Penny.

    If your pappy gave them to you, I would not worry about the value. IMO, they are priceless and that is all that counts.

    Now that y'all have slapped him down -

    You got a JC Higgins 22 rifle. Made by High Standard and sold by Sears. Good gun.

    You either got a Browning Auto 5, or the the Remington made when John Moses got perturbed with FN. Either way, an excellent shotgun, although the Browning would be worth more.

    Looks like a 4" nickel Model 19 S&W 357. Best lightweight 357 ever made.

    That stainless N frame with the 6" barrel is impossible (for me, anyway) to identify, 'cause of the crappy cell-phone pictures. But a 6" N frame is not to be sneezed at.

    T'other one is a Taurus copy of a Beretta 92. Piece of junk, in my opinion, although lots of people seem to like 'em.

    So you got three great guns, a good gun and a piece of - I'll leave it at "piece of junk". You did pretty good.

    I'd like y'all to all think about something (he said, hijacking merrily away at the thread).

    Let's suppose my mother collected paintings of kids with big sad eyes.

    [​IMG]

    When she died I inherited 30 of 'em. They are ugly. I have no need for them. I have no desire for them. They creep me out. But some people like 'em. Some people will pay big money for 'em. So I plan to sell them, and use the money I get for them for something good, like a new gun.

    So I go to a painting board and post a couple of pictures, and say, "I just inherited these things. Are they worth anything?"

    Should I get 7 or 8 angry responses, saying, "They belonged to your mother. They are priceless. You are scum for wanting to sell them"? No, I should not get those types of responses, but I probably would.

    How about this? Mama collected State Quarters. Should I keep them forever, because they meant something to her? That's idiotic. They are quarters.

    And so it is with guns. Now, if I inherited Grandpa's Single Action Army that he used when he was Wyatt Earp's deputy, in Tombstone, then yeah, that's a family heirloom, that's neat as hell, keep that. But how about if I inherit the SKS Grandpa bought two weeks before he stepped in front of that bus? He never even shot it. I got no use for an SKS. So I come on here and say, "Hey, I've got this Yugo SKS with a folding bayonet and a grenade launcher. What's it worth?" Y'all gonna give me crap because, "That was your grandfather's. You need to keep it, it's priceless"?

    A few weeks ago I found my grandfather's watch. Least I think it was his. Never saw Daddy wear it, and it had a jewelry store receipt from California, and Grandpa lived and died there. So I guess it was his. Should I ask about it on this board? I hang out here, people know me. But it just seems to make more sense to go to a watch forum to ask about a Hamilton wristwatch. And you know, when I asked what it was worth, nobody gave me any grief about "How can you think about the monetary value of your Grandfather's watch, you lowlife?". They just gave me a value.
