You kids are getting richer all the time

My Grandpa Alton (not really my grandpa, but my great uncle, but he WAS my grandpa...long story) was on the Utah Vally target shooting team and competed nationally.   He was good.  He had a special Winchester model 52 target shooting rifle which, when he died, went to my dad.  I got it when my dad died.  I have a good friend that's a gun collector who looked it up for me.  Right now it's worth about $1000 which I had no clue.  I was thinking maybe 200-300 at the most.

Cool. Are you going to sell it?

Very cool. so you've got guns in your home hu?

Dunno if I'm gonna sell it and Cambrie, currently I have 4 guns in my home. I've always had at least 2 in my home since we've been married. Apparently I've hid them well from some of my children.

And from your wife...for long time I didn't know where they were. You don't sell stuff you inherit from your grandpa. It gets passed down the line.

I was a good kid and never looked where I shouldn't... except around Christmas time, but that's another story.

I vaguely remember seeing a gun, but that vagueness includes being down the street at the neighbor's house (Sand-something-er-others, I think... Next door to the Haslems).
