My first shotgun was a Remington sportsman 48. It was a 20ga. semi auto. I was 12 when I got it. Must have run thousands of shells through it over the years. One of my grandsons has it now and it still works good as ever. I've owned hundreds of guns over the years. Had many "wish I'd kept" guns. Always had a love affair with pistols. Had more of them than anything. I sure do miss my shooting days.
