Man that’s cool! When all this COVID stuff started I cleaned out a place that had 80 year old 30-06 boxes. Remington Kleanbore and some old Western X pretty cool stuff. Gave 1 of them to a gun collector friend

My first shot gun was a cheap side by side that I bought at sears. It was the very first thing I bought with my very first paycheck, had to have my mom “ buy” it as I was only 12.

The Sears store in Beaumont, was in down town. I always wanted my mom to park by the door near the sporting goods department. Their gun counter was by the door as you walked in.

I can smell those shells after firing. The old shotgun gun shells just had a distinct flavor

When I was a kid I would study those boxes and dream of killing ducks and pheasant! Very nostalgic!

Crazy how much Sears and Western Auto has changed. We used to buy guns and ammo at both.
