Thinking back only a few makes and models make it into that category.
1) 1911 GI
2) Browning Hi Power
3) S&W .357 Magnum
4) Over / Under Shotgun

I've been into trap/skeet and never really felt the love with SA or Pump. Figured I would go up and down or left to right. Hope the weather lets up to go and enjoy the great activity.

How much for the dog? Just kidding. The over/under looks totally sleek.

We were issued with a 9mm Browning Hi Power in the Australian army. I liked them.

I bought an old L.C. Smith SxS 12 ga last summer. Sent the serial number to the L.C. Smith owners club and found out it was made in 1930. Itís a side lock when most American shotguns were, and still are, box lock. It still shoots nice to be almost 90 years old.I have seen some literature from the period when skeet shooting was considered a ď gentlemanís ď sport. Nice O/U you have there.

My next door neighbor just started reloading this winter. He got the pistol cartridges by himself. He needed help with bottle neck cartridges, he didn't know what a case gauge was, and he was crushing the shoulders with the crimp die. I helped him out, since then we have been shooting out the back of his airplane hangar which happens to be next to mine. We shoot across the runway since its covered in snow, and its been snowing here for a few weeks atleast. My dogs look atleast as bored as yours too...lol, Bird season is a long long ways away!

One of my favorites is my Winchester Model 12 featherweight...my first shot gun purchased from a old gunsmith. Long day of shooting that will wreck your shoulder...but has a lot of sentimental value.

Romantic shooting? Like getting my wife a 30-30 lever action for Valentines Day a couple years ago? In my defense, she does love reading Louis L'amour.....

Romantic shooting?

On the day of the 5th year anniversary with my girlfriend. I totally forgot about it. I gave her a call after work on the way home like I usually do. Instead of mentioning anything or preparing a date, I went to buy a pistol.

My mind was totally occupied by this gun since Black Friday last year then Christmas and I finally bought it. And I chose to buy it on that day. She was not impressed at all.

When my wife and I got married back in 1983, 35 years ago, we made an agreement that we would not exchange gifts on birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, Valentines Day, "Sweetest Day", along with all the rest of that silly, commercialized nonsense. Over the course of those 35 years we've managed to save tens of thousands of dollars, that helped us to finance an early retirement.

Plus, if either of us decide at any time we would like to purchase a big ticket item, we simply go out and buy it. The person gets exactly what they want, when they want it. Not an overpriced bunch of flowers that are dead in a week. Or some stupid, overpriced trinket, or piece of jewelry neither of you will ever wear, or would have ever bought for yourselves in the first place. Along with a stack of cards piled up on a shelf in a closet somewhere.

If you add up the amount of money that couples waste on this silly practice every year, it will shock you. My wife is very good with money, so I had no trouble talking her into this. I tell guys thinking about getting married to do the same. If the answer isn't what you would like to hear, perhaps you should keep looking, instead of making the mistake of asking.

Years ago (about 30!) I bought a nice RED Troy Rototiller (Horse). Yep, truck delivered on Valentine's Day. Wife was pretty cranky. How the heck am I to control the delivery date. She laughs about it now.

My wife likes shooting .22LR and .38Special from handguns and rifles. She used to like it when I helped her with her grip, she REALLY liked it when I helped her with her rifle hold. Now she just does it and I keep my distance! banana

What the heck is with the slippers??? LOL grin2 LOL Those are goofy!!

For me its the elegant design and craftsmanship of prewar guns in general. Perhaps not the lower end stuff like Iver Johnson wheelguns, but things like a C96 Mauser, a Mauser 98, P08 Luger, S&W Triple Lock, Browning Auto 5, etc.

Back when we had variety in design and guns were more built than assembled like in today's world.

Exactly how me and the girlfriend are. I don't need "permission" to go buy something with my money. I never understood how someone can feel like they need to be told its ok to spend the money they made on what they want. I totally agree about the commercialisation of those days you mentioned as well.
