Have you told him this yet???

Well, my pastor is also my dad! I've joked with him about it many times concerning this gun!

Knowing that information, makes that statement even more precious.

my first thought was my single six. we have traveled too many miles and years together to be left behind. then i think of my grandmothers Win. M94 32spl. its been though 2 house fires, with it blackened and charred stock it still shoots right where i want the round to go, don't know that i could leave it for a 3rd fire.

If I had to grab just one and it was for my survival, I would have to get my FA83 454 Casull.

The one I had the most ammunition loaded for is the one I would grab.

This is a tough decision. I couldn't choose between the S&W Model 10 my deceased father carried as a Sheriff, or the Ruger Bisley 45 given to me by my brother. Or maybe it would be the first handgun I fired as a kid, a Colt Police Positive 22 WRF. I can't decide but thanks to the OP for making me think about the guns I value most.

Yeah, that was my whole point. Obviously it's a hypothetical situation. But made me really think about which ones are practical, what's fun, and what's sentimental.

I decided to go with practical for my choice. It just happens to be a lot of fun too!

Since you said "gun" and not "Handgun" I would grab the single shot Iver Johnson my grandfather and great grandfather used to feed the families - it is so worn that they carried a steel ball bearing to roll down the barrel to "eject" the shell. The ball bearing got lost before I got my hands on it. Even in handguns I would go nostalgia and grab the high standard .22 revolver I got from Dad! Would be tough call if I had his old Model 10 in hand.
