Would like to take a moment ...

Postby RoadRanger » Tue Feb 26, 2013 10:17 pm

To thank my dad for just giving me a like new 12 gauge Mossburg pump tonight. I was over hanging out after work to look at a new concealed carry pistol he just bought to add to his collection and mentioned I have several guns but have not gotten around to getting an adult sized shotgun. I am 28 and all I have ever owned was my youth model 870 express. I love that short little gun and can hit with it no problem but never have put money towards a full length shotgun. He said " you want a big gun hang on just a second" and went walking to the back of the house.......

I was thinking he was joking and would come out with a bb gun or something as a joke but NO he hands me the beautiful gun. He had traded years and years ago to his brother for my cousin to have a 20 gauge to start hunting with and my dad has never even put a round through the gun! Thanks dad it really means alot.

I know he will read this post eventually as he hides in the shadows and has never joined in on the fun around here. Maybe one day he will join and post up here and there.

RoadRanger, that's what Dads do. You're 28 years old and have been an adult for years now, but you will always be his little boy. There's no doubt he is a fine man to do something like that and he obviously did an excellent job of raising you.

I have been shooting that youth model 870 for roughly 17 years I am guessing.

A GREAT DAD. Best friends come and go, but a father will be there for you no matter what. Through the good times and bad, he will never judge you, but will always give fatherly advice. Most of which, was learned from his dad.
