Sorry to hear about a family member passing, but you must have rated high to receive something like this. Browning Hi-Power, 9mm. Great pistol. I thought it cool that the Browning was made in Belgium. And who'd have thunk that the Springfield XD is made in Croatia? (It is. Got one!)
I have 2 rifles and a 12-gauge (all Remington's) along with an M1 Carbine that have been handed down from my grandfather. (Age of the 4 of them combined is almost 300 yrs) All of these, and a few more that I've purchased, will be passed on to my children later on. I just hope that the kids and grandkids will appreciate and cherish these family heirlooms when I kick the bucket and head for those Pearly Gates.
