Well then hunt well, hunt often, and love doing it! I to am very carefull with my hunting funds. The only weapon I ever bought new was my 12ga. Mossberg sabot. So may it serve you many years and many deers! ;)

My shotgun is a 16ga. that belonged to my late father. Definitely not the best gun around, but no other gun will ever give me the same feeling when I take something with it. Although my step father is giving me his Browning 12ga. in a couple of years, so I'll alternate between them after that. He's the one who taught me everything, so it will be a special day when I first hunt with that Browning. My gun collection definitely contains the best collection of "hand-me-downs" a guy could ask for. I have a feeling, if my family were bowhunters, I wouldn't own a new bow either. My brother and I started that tradition, so our kids will be the first generation fortunate enough to get stuck with bow "hand-me-downs."
Respect - don't take it, unless you are willing to give it.
Responsibility - don't give it, unless you are willing to take it.

I think we may be it the wrong thread with the long guns. I will see if there is a thread for handmedown guns, if not I think I'll start one. :)

I have no time for conversations that don't wander a little bit. :lol:

Browning Rage bought used last December
60#
29in draw
tru glow 3 pin sight
rage 2 blade
1 deer kill, 1 coon kill in its first season with me so far


As is human nature, after shooting with some friends that have much nicer bows (new pse's, hoyt's...ect ect) I thought I would need a new bow. But after seeing the smack down van damage my bow did to that doe at 33 yards this weekend, the Browning stays.
