It broke my heart. Not so much that it was about that gun, but it was a part of my father that is now gone.

It was a beauty, not a mark on it and it shot very nice, Belgium made. Oh well, life goes on.
I had one of those for a couple of years a long time back......nice gun but I didn't like the way it ejected the spent shells out the bottom, they would often hit me in the wrist because of the way I held the gun and if I was wearing the right (or wrong) kind of long-sleeve shirt I'd have hot brass dropping down the cuff. I found myself holding it at an awkward angle when I shot it, so ultimately sold it. They are definitely an old classic, however.
