Grandpa Says Get Your Guns

For those who have been following me since the beginning have heard my stories about my grandpa’s gun room. As a kid, I was terrified to go anywhere near this room. Partially because my grandpa made sure that I knew those guns were not toys. Now that room is heaven to me. The best part is, tomorrow we get to go out and have fun.

With over 50 guns, this guy has it all. From a U.S Army 1911 Colt manufactured in 1918 to a .380 pistol to an AR-15 and a Hopkins .45 caliber target rifle with a 30 inch barrel. Needless to say, I was in a gun lovers paradise.

This is a Taurus Judge .45 caliber revolver that can also shoot shotgun shells. Otherwise known as my grandma’s ‘under the pillow’ gun.

Here is one of my grandpa’s gun safe. The top rack is full of .22, .380, 9mm, .32, and .45 caliber handguns. My favorite is the 1911 Colt. There are a handful of really nice Smith & Wessons as well. There is also a handmade muzzle loader.

The second rack are his more high powered handguns such as a .350 magnum.

Bottom rack are his hunting rifles, shotguns, and an AR-15 with a 30×10 40mm scope.

And here is this bad boy. A .223 Remington hunting rifle.

What blew me away most was the crazy amounts of ammo. Thousands upon thousands of bullets and slugs.

Anyways, it’s time for a good nights sleep. I’m heading out to shoot some of these in the morning. Hopefully my phone can stand recording my shots and I’ll do my best to post them.

What’s your favorite gun to shoot?

  1. I enjoy seeing any girl learning from Gramps or Dad the love for firearms. Glad the legacy is being passed on. πŸ™‚ My favorite gun to shoot would be my AR-15, or my Kimber Custom II. I also like my Ruger LCR 357. Shooting long range with the Remington 700 is also a blast!!! I guess I can’t pick a favorite after all . πŸ™‚

    • I have never had the chance to shoot an AR-15 but that’s my goal by the end of the year! I did get the chance to shoot a Ruger 357 and that was really awesome. I feel bad for my husband, it looks like I have an expensive Christmas list this year πŸ˜‰
