    Here is a story about mine

    My Grandfather was a kid during the Great Depression. The Crackshot
    was his only gun and his dad gave him and his brother Carl 2 shells a day
    and they were to bring back 2 rabbits or squirls. My grandfather was one of
    seven children and 2 small game animals was bearly enough to go around so
    there was no missing aloud. The Crackshot and and some snares and
    homeade box traps kept my family name alive.
    My Grandfather is long gone now and Grandmother just went to a Nursing
    home and she gave the rifle to me. I told her long ago that would place it
    and this story over my mantle so my family would know where they came
    from. Now even with her mind slipping she remembered what I had told her
    so many years ago.

    Not a Stevens, but I learned to shoot with a Savage rifle that was of the same design. Not sure if they made the Steven rifles or not. It was very accurate and I felt like I could shoot all afternoon with just a pocket full of shells.

    I remember when I was a kid, I met my uncle in the woods. We shot at a fern like weed on the other side of the creek. I cut the weed on the first shot. I had just gotten back from a Boy Scout camp where I got my rifle merit badge and was in very good practice. I loved that rifle, but it belonged to my brother and he has it. I have bought an older Savage since. I thought about getting one of the new ones, but haven't.

    Nickel '#26 Crackshot'....?

    I picked one up a little over a year ago, not a stitch of blue on it, not even at the barrel/rear sight joint. Looks like nickel plated. Missing the extractor, and the bore is dark....been looking for a reputable smith the reline it, maybe down to hm2.

    Here my Stevens Crackshot-26 and Springfield-Stevens 53B. The Crackshot I got from my Mother who'd gotten it as a birthday present around 1936. It was her job on their dairy in Oklahoma to shoot rats and mice with it. It had been stored out in a barn until about 1973 by an uncle when my mom got it back. It was in poor shape so my dad refinished the stock and had it re-blued. My mom gave it to me ~1986. I treasure this rifle.

    I've got a stevens 72 crackshot Its friggin awsome:D my favorite gun of all of mine to this day wouldn't trade it for anything. Its what I learned to shoot on I can hit a 3in apple at 50yards with it open sights too. Can't figure out how to post a picture of it but It looks exactly like Anteater1717 gun exept without a scope.
    like your story I to was only allowed so much ammo and was taught to make every shot count I got good enough when I got older and was out of school for the summer we never had to feed our cat because i would go out to the cattle feedbunk and shoot at least 2 birds every day I learned to wait for them to line up so i could take 2 birds with one shot I have even taken 3 birds at once before but rarely.
    Great family story sound like my grandfather times were tough then.
