I assume you are a detective, I can agree with a choice like you made, most of our guys if they have to go somewhere for an interview with a suspect even if they have an appointment like to take a uniformed deputy with them.

Our detectives and admin are the only ones that do not wear a vest, even the jail and civil process wear vests.....it has come in handy in both places in the past.

My Grandfather purchased this rifle brand new in 1954, a .35 Remington 336SC. Its been in the family since, did decades of work as a deer rifle (before they were outlawed in Ohio) and is now mine.

Picture of him holding it, brand new, on the family farm back in 1954...

Before he passed, he taught me with this rifle, it was the first non-.22 rifle I'd ever fired. Its in OK shape, has some bluing loss and a bit of surface pitting. I'm not sure if / how it should be refinished.. Its never going to be a beauty queen or worth much to anyone but me and my father.

Its a sweet shooter, action is smooth as all getout (they don't get much more broken in) and it'll get taken out every now and again on nice days. If deer hunting with rifles is ever legalized in Ohio again I might take it out for legacy's sake, but otherwise its a family heirloom that put food on the table for my dad when he was growing up, it will enjoy its dignified retirement.
My G'pa and I were both right handed / left eye dominant, only ones in the family, so the wear marks in the wood's finish perfectly coincide with how we both hold the rifle, the nicks in the stock from his wedding ring pretty much perfectly line up with where mine hit..
That kind of stuff cannot be bought or sold for any price.

Great story, and a great deer gun. Ya aught to shoot it once in a while, but ammo is probably pricy. Regarding the pitting/bluing: I had my Dad's Browning re-blued as it was really looking bad, the shop did a good job on it and it still looks 'right' but if you don't object to the minor blemishes and it's kept from further rusting who cares?

Nice gun and a lot of good family history. Too bad it's not a straight walled cartridge. If it was 30 cal, 45 LC or even 45-70 govt the new pistol caliber rifle laws would apply for you to hunt with it again.

I really wanted to try the 22 TCM out.
That sux - and keep at it, it will be worth it. i adore mine and is my favorite range gun. never have i had a pistol bring so many smiles to my face (or anyone that has shot it come to think of it). i just put a orange fiber front sight on it and a grip (wide body.. so limited on what grips are available). I have finally dialed it in to half dollar groups at 15 yards.. but am able to hit a 5" target at 50 yards (shooting off hand no rest)

Wow, cool story. We have a couple of guns like that in the family. Reload for it, shoot it and pass it on to your grandchildren along with the stories and pictures. Nothing like teaching the next generation how to shoot with a gun that was used to teach people to shoot and hunt two generations ago.

Had a couple strays follow me home from the gun show today...


Savage Model 99 in .300 Savage (circa 1952)



Savage Model 24V in .222 Remington / 20-gauge (circa 1968)

I was really hoping to come home with two 99's - the other being in 250-3000 Savage, but they guy wanted way to much for it and wouldn't budge on his price.

Oh, well, only TWO new ones today? bummer. both look nice.

Ya know, one nice thing about older guns is that you can buy more of them, plus you so often get really nice wood at a decent price - seems like really good wood new costs a bunch - but I just think a bolt gun with a plastic stock looks wrong - personal problem, I know....

I dunno about older guns being cheaper, but I agree 100% that plastic has no place on a long gun. I miss the days when guns were offered with nicely checkered walnut stocks and a high polish blued finish.

Good stuff, there's nothing wrong with a revolver. What type and how many speed loaders do you carry?

That is very cool. IMHO, I would not even think of having it re-blued. Those are marks of age...and rightfully earned. I would bet your grandfather would be super happy to see it cleaned up a bit and taken to the range occasionally to shoot.

Yes, you do want a 1911 in 38 Super.

The 1911 in 38 Super is one of my favorites. If you ever see a Taurus 1911 in 38 Super, give it a go. Mine is a great shooter, especially for the money. I bought mine as a refurb for <$400.

Pistol Caliber Carbines that share mags with your handguns are great IMO.

AR based PCC shares mags with most of my Glocks. Need to finish the second lower, have all the parts, just haven't taken the time. Both are 16" uppers. Last round hold-open is functional with these lowers.


I've stuck with 9mm mostly for mag interchangeability and reloading cost.


If I feel like I need more power, that is where 7.62 comes in.
