    Got these out of Illinois' waiting period today. One is definitely "tired", the other ready for a brawl right now. A 1920 Pocket Positive in .32 Police, this poor little guy had been ridden hard and put up wet. It took to a little cleaning, oil and new grips like a fat kid to hot cookies. Then a 1933 New Service in .45ACP, this bruiser is ready to go.

    Great story Sut. My best friend Grandpa used to fire guns into a little trap in his basement. I always worried about him.

    This one...

    Really looks like "it has been there" and "done it".

    An old H.J. Sterling 12 ga., was my Great Grandpa's, not sure how old it is as I don't find any dates on it. H.J. Sterling was a
    trade name used by F. Dumoulin and Company of Liege, Belgium in the period circa 1894-1914. It was probably sold by a catalog or hardware store, or he may have brought it with him when they immigrated in the late 1800s as they were from Belgium. Not worth much except to me. Definitely tired and old.

    @ ussmanlovede36,

    I'm a sucker for Smith & Wesson N frames. Consider this my second like.
