Retirement gift from my Firefighters Association. They originally were going to have it engraved, but they thought it looked so nice they did not want to risk messing up those sideplates. I could not be happier. Just in time for Dove season. It will be my main hunting shotgun this season, but probably restrict it to fair weather days.

Excellent! Now that's a retirement gift. I inherited my dads Win 101. I still take it out and shoot once in a while. Enjoy.

Congratulations.....!

Very nice gift. Should be fun to hunt with.


My Older Brother retired this year (Chemical Corporation) and the guys there rewarded him similarly (firearm).

It's a 20 Gauge CZ Sharptail. Turkish Huglu made. A long time hunting partner and brother firefighter who hired on about the same time as me 34 years ago and retired a few weeks after me received a shotgun just like it. I retired a few months ago, but we are the first to receive firearms, so there was some things that had to be worked out as to what gun and how to go about it. In the past it was usually a pocket watch.
