I've got a hankering for a couple Winchester 1895's, one in 30-40 Krag, the other in 405.
An old hammer double in 450-400. Still kicking myself for buying some cool Winchester M70's instead of the double at the same show... LOP was a bit short so I passed... And kicking myself for holding out on a 577 double a few months back that I should have bought just for fun
At DSC a few years ago there was this H&H Royal. I was busy darkening out one of the zero's in the $200K price tag when security showed up. Mostly I remember being escorted away than the actual details of the rifle.
The Mauser 66S Stutzen in .308 Winchester, the Winchester M1985 in .405 Winchester, the Merkel 141 in .450/400 3" NE, the Mannlicher-Schoenauer in 10,75x68, the Mauser M71/84 in 11,15x60R, the Ruger 77 RSM in .450 Rigby, the R8 in 500 Jeffrey....don't stop me now...
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.
also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
