Hello, fellows!...
Yes... my old mauser 1891 vintage.... carbine friendly called as "the shorty"... give me the first joy the last friday!...
Friday afternoon, in a countriside near my home, while I were surrounding the internal roads of the farm watching the tracks of the boars with a couple of friends, I see a path near a deep chanell... and the mud in the bottom very twisted...
While we were watching, I note the smell, very strong... and a track very fresh ofa "big one"... VERY BIG FOOTPRINT...
While my friends and I were debating the way of aproaching... suddenly, my friend Danny (unarmed this time) see a head lean out fron the high grass of the border...
The typicall word used here is "UN CHANCHO!!" (A PIG....) word who causes a lot of sensations (impossible to describe... haha)
The movement was instintive! in a fraction of a second, I was on knees and pointing the boar, at 130 meters far away... The shot place was in the shoulder... I have not the time to sight in the head because the boar can suddenly dissapear as fast as he appears here... so... PLUUUUM.... FLOCCCCCCCCCC...
I see him jumping and fall through the scope... Later, we listen a noise... broken corn... He fall, roll and walk into the corn 20 meters ....


Nice pig Marcos!

Nice one Marcos.
Marcos, fantastic boar. Shorty is a keeper.
It means a gun you shouldn't or won't get rid of. I mean keep it "keeper"
It's a good gun my friend, that's all. It's a phrase, meaning don't sell or trade it.

Well, sir, I am mighty impressed with the quality of the shell cordovan belt. I have several pairs of shoes that are shell cordovan, but had balked at paying over half that price for just a belt. Wouldn't be surprised if this belt doesn't last the rest of my life--for its color application. It sure is a universe removed from the cheaply constructed yet expensive stuff being put out there. Worth the price I paid.
getting ready for a 5 day sable hunt!
