Here are a couple of guns that my Dad left me they were his favorites.. A buddy of my Dads did custom engraving and my Dad was an Auto Mechanic so they just swapped out car work for gun work.. Both of them have my Dad's initials inlaid on them and both Browning Citoris bought in the late 70's early 80's.

The first is a 410 with antique scroll covering the reciever.. This was my Dad's first Skeet/Bird gun..



This one is a 28 guage that my Dad had done in his native South Texas scenery. Complete with Dove, Quail, Catcus, Mesquite Trees, Barbed wire fences and even a hidden Rattlesnake..




These two guns really got me interested in personalizing my guns.. I have yet to someone to do this kind of work, this was all hand engraved.. But I have done some things to a few of my guns.. Especially floor plates and trigger guards..

Do you happen to remember the man's name? Maybe he taught someone else his trade and patience. Would love to have some art like that in my safe.
Congrats those are beautiful firearms.

His name is Albert Bean. He lives in Corpus Christi TX. I talked with him a couple of years ago and he is still engraving.

I know this goes without saying, but you should take great pride in your fathers' guns. Those are to be treasured!
