Default Gift out of the blue

I had an uncle pass away last year that lived in Michigan that I had not seen or heard from in years. I get a call from a friend of his that passing through town and said he had something for me and would I meet with him. So I did and he gave me a pistol that my uncle had left to me in the will. I was floored and still am actually.

From what I can tell it is a great gun, some of you may know more about it but here it is. He also gave me a registration card dated 1963 from the city of Detroit where my uncle bought the gun new. The gun was made in 1962

model 1935 Browning High power 9ml with 2 clips.

Congrats Buckshot, on the gift. Very sorry that uncle passed away. Those pistols are very popular today and have pretty good value. BB has a cool suggestion on the engraving. Prior to my dad passing he had my brother and I over to his house and had us each draw a card, the highest card got to pick first, Me! As we went through the guns I got to my brother's favorite a model 94 Win in 30-30, knowing this I passed on it and chose another. I now have that one along with other's picked that day. I guess it's fitting and with great pride that families pass down their firearms. I'll follow that tradition too! Your uncle thought pretty high of you! It just sucks to loose family members, I can't stand it, just know it has to happen though.

I'm sorry you lost your uncle Buckshot, and this is a great item to have willed to you.
If it were left to me I would have it engraved

"In memory of Uncle So and so, 19?? - 20??"
