I started collecting back in the early 1980's after being introduced into the hobby by my late best friend "Mike".
He got me hooked big time and we had many, many good times together collecting firearms from around the world. I always
had a love of firearms and their history from when I was a little kid. The first gun I shot was with my dad behind the
house, it was a Stevens 14 1/2 Little Scout. From the first deer I shot with the old .35 Remington Model 8 to the clay
birds I "try" to break with my Beretta, guns have become a part of me. I hope you enjoy these pages and I hope I am
able to keep this web site longer than my old web site at www.yooperjohn.homestead.com
which is no longer available. Enjoy--
