    When I was twelve I told my stepfather that I was wanting a shotgun. His reply was to save the money, come to him, and he would buy me what I was wanting. He figured I'd never save the $55.00 back in them days. I cut grass, trimed, edged, car hopped and in just two months, had my $55.00. So I went to him and said, "I got it... lets go!." He got up, put on his ;father knows best hat (remember what that look like ... lol)' and off we went to the Western Auto Store. For $55.00 I got a Savage 12 guage shotgun which was so old it didn't even have a serial number on it. But it was mine. Over the course of a few years, this proved to be the deadliest quail gun in Oklahoma. All I had to do was pick it up and start walking and a quail would die somewhere. lol. Same with rabbits. Gane wardens even asked me if I'd consider taking a season or two off so the game would have a chance to repopulate. Thieves broke in and stole my Remington 870...left me the old savage. Other than the fact I'd like to kill a thief faster than I would a mud turtle, I was happy with the ole .12 guage.

    Memories are great, glad that you was able to get that gun and sounds like some good eating over time with it as well. I am sure it will be passed down for more memories in the future.
