    It was a really pretty Ruger Bearcat .22 single six with the (brass)? They had just come out. Paid $37.50, the gun shop across the street sold them for $35 but they were not in stock. I told the guy where I bought it they were cheaper across the street. He said " When I'm out of stock, I sell them for $32.

    Like a idiot I sold it some years later. Wish I had kept it.

    I was given a Savage Model 7 by my Grandfather. He had bought it new in 1938. I received it in 1962. In 2007, I gave it to my oldest Grandson. Hopefully, he will continue the progression.

    I don't know what model or year this gun is. I know it's old and made by Savage.

    Remington 514 given to me on my 10th birthday. I'm almost 67 years old and this has been a treasure since the day my father gave it to me. He told me in no uncertain terms that I was to take very good care of this rifle. I feel like I have kept my word. You know it is old when an inexpensive .22 rifle has a walnut stock on it. Back then they never even thought of any other kind of wood for a stock. No serial number either. I own 16 long guns and this little .22 means more to me than all the rest put together. A 57 year old, one owner, single shot .22 rifle in NRA 95% condition or better.

    My first .22 was a Remington 550-1 that was given to me when my Great Uncle Scotty passed away. A few years later I sold it to my brother, then realized my mistake and asked him to let me buy it back.....that was 20+ years ago and I haven't parted with it since.

    Bob & Wife: Quick questions: You obviously have a lot of guns NOT being fired for many months. What type of oils etc, do you use to keep them from getting rusted over their storage time?? New guy, Thanks Bob
