Shaner that was long ago and far away.
I am the proud owner of 3 Rem 870 Wingmasters. A 16 ga plain barrel early build that was owned by my grandfathers brother in law.
We connected with fishing, I was 6, he was 6o and we would spend whole mornings together with only a few words said. But the words were not needed.
Anyway he handed down his favorite shotgun to me when I was old enough.
I had a 20 ga cut down to fit my small frame, vent rib. Boy compared to a .410 bolt action it was a wildlife killing machine.
Then I picked up a 12 ga special trap model when my cousin quit shooting trap. I wrapped it in camo tape used it as my waterfowl and trap gun.
They made the best, period.
Then they went downhill and I started looking at other company's. It felt like a betrayal. I'd of been perfectly happy being a Rem Fanboi for most of my life.
But when they cheapened the lube on their .22lr ammo I dropped them like a hot rock and never looked back.
Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.
