In my hands you see a Winchester .22 Model 1906 (or first introduced in 1906). This rifle has been in the Harty family for 5 generations. I've forgotten who first had the rifle (hopefully Dad will straighten this out). But as I remember, here are the owners, starting with me:
Anyway, this is my favorite and most treasured firearm. It is a fun rifle to shoot as well. It uses .22 shorts, since it was designed for arena competitions back in the day. I promised Jake and Tom yesterday that whoever gave me the first grandson, I would give them the rifle to pass down to their son. In this way, we can keep the streak of this rifle in Harty hands through the generations!
