Default Found in Dads Basement

Cleaning out a cabinet in Dads Basement and found this.



About 300 rounds still in sealed cartons.

Might have to get the 1911 into my name at take it out.
Last time the gun was shot he said that was the last of the ammo he brought home in 1954. Guess it wasn't!

That is beyond awesome. Definitely need to take your Dad with you if he's still around to pop them off.

that's a really sweet find; my dad got his 1911 in the 70's and it came to me when he passed away 7 years ago.

So in honor of your father- share the wealth of that .45 ammo since the man took it off the store shelves??
