Hey guys just wondering about any family heirlooms you may have and what makes them special to you. Also wanted to share mine and see if anyone had any info on it. The first gun I ever shot was a Springfield Arms Company .22 rifle. It was originally purchased by my great grand father for one of his 6 sons. The son was my great uncle Greene who died at 14. Great grand dad started using the rifle to squirrel hunt in the mountains of KY and didnt let anyone else use it for obvious reasons. Several years later he met my grand father ( his son in law ) and gave it to him for a wedding gift. I think that in hills of KY back then it must have been customary to give something of sentimental value. IDK maybe he just really liked my grand dad. Anyways my grand dad loved this thing and wanted me to learn w/ it. We spent hours and hours in the back yard him drinking a few beers and me putting holes in the empties. I did this at least once a week from the age of 4-5 til 13-14. When my grand dad passed away he left it to me ( really pi$$ed my uncles off ). A couple years ago I taught my oldest to shoot w/ it he was 5. Now I'm teaching my youngest that just turned 5. When we shot the other day it took me back and made me happy & a little sad at the same time. I'd love to know more about this Springfield Arms Company .22 the only marks other than brand is a circled 14. I think it was made around 1904 and called "The Little Scout" if anyone has better / more info please share.Not lookin for value its worth a million bucks to me! I'd also love to here about your heirloom.
