    What sense does that law make? What keeps a person from giving it to another for a day? He can give it back to you the next day. I am not trying to break the law here, but I am trying to understand what good it serves. How does the state of WA even know who owns the old shotgun in the first place?

    edited for clarification

    Gosh, I lost about 20 IQ just hitting that link. The site is maintained by those responsible for "plugging the gunshow loophole". Now keep an eye on the numbers and see how effective such feelgood legislation is over the next few years. Once on the books, however, they never seem to come off and they are used to promote the agenda elsewhere. They won't rest until everyone is a criminal, and therefore disqualified from gun ownership.

    Grew up shooting mine. '29model 32"full. I haven't shot it in probably 30yrs. or so. I love it and don't want to put any more wear on the old gal because I want some left for the grandson.

    Built in 1927 I shoot mine with everything except steel. Their tough old gals but smooth as silk.

    But. I never, ever 'slam' fire it.

    Its a 12 gauge. I had two 16 gauge Model 12s and never worried about them. High brass, low brass didn't matter I shot everything out of those old boys,..........except steel.

    But, given its history, especially its military history in both world wars, that is one firearm I am truly proud to own. :)

    I think the OP does too.
