    @CoElkHunter My wife didn't hunt till our first trip to Africa, the ladies in camp convinced her she should hunt a Impala and as they say the rest is history. Where we went last year the pool was heated. Swimming in the rivers isn't a safe option. I have a few family members that quilt, embroidery, knit, and weave and those machines a pricey, so you should have some room for a African safari and a couple guns. Just make sure you pick up some fabric to bring back with you as her trophy

    I tackled the doubles, won't even try the bolt guns as my memory isn't that good but the single shots should be manageable.

    Impressive! You actually have/had a .416 Rigby which Toby didn’t list/have (yet?). Ha! Ha!

    Yeah, I was just being facetious about the pool and river. Although, if someone was hunting crocs, a decoy might work? Ha! Ha! Anyway, I told my wife if she ever got tired of sewing/quilting, maybe the guy (Toby) with the 214 guns at one time, might want to trade a few rifles for her long arm machine? He could then learn to sew and create his own signature line of African Safari clothing! He could have the machine Cerakoted to protect it from the humidity where he lives, and could mount a low power scope on it facing the needle for better resolution? The only question with mounting the scope would be fixed rings and mounts or QR style rings? It would be his choice of course! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    I haven’t sold many, given away more than I’ve ever sold. As they say, give a man a deer and feed him for a month or two, give him a rifle so he can hunt and his wife will hate you til the day you die. Or something like that.

    I have a buddy that had a drug habit. His wife took the checkbook away and the only way he could get any money out of her was to convince her he was buying another gun. She thought having a gun hobby was better than a drug habit. So he would buy new guns, shoot them a little if at all, and them sell them to me at a big loss for cash so he could fund his drug habit..... She finally caught on and divorced him. He went to rehab and cleaned up....I sure miss those days :ROFLMAO:
