Re: Ithaca 37 20ga restoration

I couldn't get your web page story to open. I would like to read it as I own a model 37 supreme skeet in 20 gauge. I bought it new many years ago (1980`s??) on a huge discount sale. I am a little ashamed to admit I have never fired it. What are they worth? http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l320/fera...

Re: Were You "Naughty Or Nice" As a Kid ? ? ?

My dad told a good story of when he was a young man he worked for a farmer. They put in a milking machine. The farmer called his son and worked him over. The kid finaly asked his dad why he whipped him. The old man said, "See that machine? Well, leave it alone!" The kid hadn't done anything!

A sad story, I lost it and many more in a divorce. The serial # on this one is 5355 NF. http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l320/...
