Carry a Ruger Old Army blackpowder revolver when I'm hunting at my parents place. From 1973.
Hungarian PJK-9HP. Not sure of the manufacture date. Basically a commie clone of the venerable Browning Hi-Power. I love mine. I got it as a cheap, disposable carry gun, but after adding some VZ 320 carry grips and some grip tape to the front and backstraps, I would hate to part from it.
Own but in no way in heck am I EVER gonna carry it: a musket from the early 1800s. My family believes it was English-made. The story that has been passed-down is that my great, great, great grandaddy was a genuine, bonafide samurai (on my mother's side) at the time he disarmed and beheaded the soldier that pointed that rifle at him.
I take this story with a pound of salt. It is the stuff that Hollywood movies are made of. Nonetheless, there is some compelling evidence that supports the story such as the armor w/helmet that he wore (in mothballs in a distant cousin's vault); the katana that has a nick on the blade where it struck this rifle; and the gouge on the rifle where another metallic object struck and dented it.
1892 .32 cal. revolver(display only), 1952 Mossberg 151M .22LR, 1959 Sako Riihimaki L46 .222, both still on active duty. And a 1970 Ruger Blackhawk .357 Magnum.
1901 M93 Spanish Mauser in 7x57. Bubba sporterized unfortunately.
24/47 Yugo Mauser in 8x57.
Two 7.7 Arisakas. Both have mums intact. One unmolested, one with a few strike marks across mum.
M44 Mosin Nagant
M91/30 Mosin Nagant
S&W M38 "humpback of Smith & Wesson. Made "sometime in 1956" according to the S&W rep. Mostly a house gun but I've carried it from time to time.
The oldest I carry is my Seecamp 32 . The oldest I use is my fathers 39 marlin, I think it was made in 1935 .Its slick as glass , why can't marlin do better to day ?
FNH Baby Browning 25. Serial # in the 500,000 range so late 50's, early 60's?
One of these three. I keep them at my mom and dad's and I can't remember the year each was manufactured.
Top is a Colt M1892 Army/Navy, Middle is Elbar Spain .38 Long CTG (Cheap S&W copy) and the bottom is an Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works 32 DA .32 S&W. The Colt and the Iver Johnson are in shootable condition.
Don't carry it very often, but a 1943 Ithaca M1911.
Probably my Security Six.
Even though my Browning Hi-Power is probably older, I rarely carry it.
My oldest gun is a 1938 S&W Terrier.Oldest gun I carry is 1992 Gen 2 G19. Having it Cerakoted soon.
I often carry my Star Model S .380

A late 50's, early 60's model Harrington & Richardson single shot, breach action .410. My first gun, received at age 7. My parents were older when I was born & had already raised my 3 siblings (18,16, & 13 years older than me) when I was born. One of those "oops" babies. Anyway, my dad bought matching 20gauge & .410 for my older brothers when they were growing up. 20 for the oldest & .410 for the second. I inherited the .410 as a Christmas gift. I was always closer with my, younger of the 2, brothers. That brother took his own life back in '02. There's only one thing in this world I'd trade for that gun.
