1923 A.H. Fox XE grade and an E.K. Tryon Barlow, both the Fox and the Barlow were sold by The E. K. Tryon Co. of Philadelphia.
Lots of very nice photos !!
My contribution is more about the pistol. My Grandfather carried this 45 in Europe during WWII.
It was made by Remington Rand Co. Not to be confused with Remington Arms, which still make guns and pistols.
During WWII everyone made guns. Remington Rand is the company more famous for making sewing machines, not pistols.
They made 900,000 units of the 1911, for WWII.
The Ka-Bar was made in 1942 for WWII, but I bought this one new in the late 70s.
Here's my contribution to the thread. The O/U 20 gauge is a Browning Citori Superlight from 1988. The Bird and Trout is made by Lamont Coombs in mirror polished 01 and really nice Cocobolo. I threw the Lloyd in the pic because it's always wanting to jump out of my pocket and get in the picture.
That's beautiful Gary. Awesome stag on that folder!
Gary, the Browning Citori was the gun of choice at the shooting club I use to frequent. Nice outfit!!!
I don't have any works of art like so many here, but do have a couple "older" pieces that have much sentimental value.
My father got this 50th Anniversary Daisy Golden Eagle as a young teen in 1936. He managed to keep it around, and became the first "gun" that my three older brothers and I learned shooting basics on. I'm sure some of my sisters also shot it, but don't remember any stories about them using it. Unfortunately I was probably the hardest on this golden beauty, but at least I still have it to show off to my children.
And.......along side is a Western three blade Stockman that went from my dads pocket as his edc, into my pocket. The blades are a bit abused as I spent too much time on a bench stone trying to sharpen. I never really learned the basics. I just applied a generous serving youthful impatience, and a sharpening we go. [emoji51]
I also threw in a monster Hobo multifunction. I received it even earlier, for my 5th Bday.
