It seems very remarkable to me that every man does not wish to own and shoot well made rifles, especially historically significant designs or at least reasonable copies of same, such as the Model 98 Mauser, Farquarson, Martini and rolling block Single Shots as well as various double barrel and drilling types, just to name some of the main ones.
Sadly, so many are guilty of a wasted life in front of the television, worshiping some sports celebrity or movie star, whom they will never even meet.
"Slaves may own equipment for playing ball games, free men may own firearms for protection, hunting and target shooting".
I agree with Paul ( Velo Dog ).

Good day to you Jerome/Members

Jerome, do you have more information/history regarding the origin of this photo? May I send it to a friend of mine to see if he can get a historical background about this photo ?
Regards

Gert

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.

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...
