This is my uncle's rover sitting in the driveway. It's licensed and runs but needs some clutch work.
Hes 81 and doesn't have the ambition to work on it himself anymore and won't let anyone else touch it.
So there it will sit for awhile.
He's owned it since sometime in the 70's

Joe, while the Toyota was an excellent choice, I think you missed a real opportunity to ride in style the rest of your years.

If you could convince your wife to drive, with you riding in back, this would make for a classic ride!

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

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.
