paul not had a chance for him to try it as the weather has been wet and cr-p. it is a well balanced comfortable rifle. in fact when i picked it up i had forgotten how nice it was, and shame on me nearly thought about keeping it for me!!!:eek: i told finn this and now he keeps asking how jealous i am!!!! :monkey: will probably use my favourite 293grn rws factory loads which the irons are set for, but when the scope is sorted will try some lighter bullets to give him a bit more range. :beer:

Congrats Mike!

I really love the way that room is decorated! That big warthog in the background there, is a terrific trophy!

No doubt about you Spike, you're a class act Father (y)

Owning a beautiful gun is certainly a special thing, but having it given to you by your Dad adds a certain irreplaceable "provenance" that makes it priceless.

Finn will get a lifetime of enjoyable shooting from that 12 bore and will forever be reminded of his bond with his Father when he does so. You can't buy THAT with money !

Congrats to both of you and may you both enjoy a lifetime of memories together enjoying your hunting and shooting (y)

eric the pig is from tanzania in 1989. where we are is not really a room . "the bar"is behind me and down the other end is the dining room. the wall behind finn is the old exterior wall, and the floor to ceiling windows you can see behind the table continue round the whole front on my right to the bar with opening doors onto a seating area overlooking the bay. its great being a georgian age house as the ceilings are very high, so great for putting some trophies on the wall, and for fitting the pole on the dance floor ;)

Mike, if your like me its hard to remember the Christmas presents I got as a youngster. Very few stand out over the years. The 9.3 and 12b will be remembered by Finn long after you are gone. Great job making memories with your son!(y)

All the best.

Few stand out and even fewer are kept over time. These will do both! Very, very cool.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

look forward to your response

regards
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...
