Hey all, I know I'm going to get flamed, but here goes. I guess I'm in the school of it's his gun and he paid for it, he can do what he wants with it. Granted if the gun is of historical value, not just another Purdey, I'd say absolutely no. But, if it's just a shooter and will say in the family, then it's his choice. We are all free to do what we want with our possessions. If I want to paint my car bright orange, green and purple, and you don't like it, tough. Just my thoughts.
Well, best go put on my flame retardant suit.
