The Shotgun

This Browning 16 gauge shotgun goes back 3 generations to my Great Grandfather.  He was in France serving in the military, in World War II, when he bought this Belgium made shotgun.  After he returned, from the war, he passed down the rifle to my grandfather on his 16th birthday.  The tradition continued and he passed it on to my father who will then  pass it on to me when I turn 16. The Shotgun is made of steel and was used for hunting by my great grandfather and grandfather. My dad was taught how to hunt quail and duck using it at the age of sixteen.  I am looking forward to getting to learn how to hunt using it with my father whenever I turn of age.
