Remington 870 Combo Express Magnum, 20ga

My husband bought it for me shortly after we were dating. I'd never hunted and he wanted me to give it a go.

I shot my first deer with it shortly thereafter and shortly after that, before I moved in with him, he had pawned it for bill money. I wasn't happy when I found out, but he was single, crazy, and not a budget minded person. I moved in two months later, lost the gun, gained a husband, and got him and his credit on the right track. I guess that's life... I try not to hold grudges or to cry over spilled milk, but I do so miss that gun. I would've liked to have had it since my first deer was taken with it. Oh well, life goes on. Now I own a little Winchester 20ga. with a shot barrel only for my bird hunting and I huntshotgun season with a CVA Hunterbolt .45 cal. muzzleloader.

I also have a Whitetails Unlimited (with medallion) rifle that I won at last years banquet, but it still has tags on it and I haven't even shot it yet.Rifles are illegal in Indiana, but I will use it to hunt Michigan.

My daughter is 7, and I recently bought her first gun for her. A little Rossi .22/.410combo. She has shot the .410a couple of times, andthe .22 a little more than that.
