    I have been thinking a lot about these since I saw them


     

    trouble is single kidneys do not fetch what they did on the deep web


    would anyone loan me a first born child?

    will gladly pay them back payday

    I'd be afraid to shoot it. Might mar that finish. I'm anal retentive enough with my cheap Citori. I say cheap because everything is relative. I paid nearly $600 for it whole sale back in 1983. Beautiful gun but not quite on this ones scale.

    just a matched pair of spanish working guns

     and they are worked.

     

    what about throwing this one over the back of the land rover tailgate


     

    1880 28 bore by George H Daw

    completely restored by ex Purdey  / H&H workmen.

    he's been offered over £45,000 for it

    he is still out shooting with it

    I've been wanting me a .22 wheel gun for a long time, but couldn't bring myself to paying more for one than I paid for my Mark III.  Well, I got an email the other day from  Davidson's notifying me that they had an Heritage Rough Rider .22 LR / .22 magnum combo on sale, so I ordered it.  Hopefully it will be at the dealer's at the beginning of the week, and I'll get to find out what I got myself into.  It's my understanding that Heritage revolvers are great guns for the price.

    I had a fixed sight Heritage Rough Rider with cheap white fake pearl grips. Traded it off and wished I hadn't have. It had the extra .22 mag cylinder. 5" bbl.

    Man that thing would shoot, a 'Natural' pointer. I could look at a spot in the house or object on the range and lift it up as I cocked and it was dead on. Never had a revolver that would do that before at any price.

    It ain't built like a Ruger Single-Six, but for the price point.......

    It has a neat Tear Drop safety on the left side rear of the cylinder. I know some hate it, but it never bothered me. Just flick it. Cool too.... if someone got a hold of it that shouldn't they wouldn't know about the safety and it would give you time to react.

    I wasn't planning on anything, until I heard about the 350 Legend.
    It's sparked an itch that I'm probably going to have to scratch later this year

    I think I need to start a search for a 7x57 Mauser now.

    In the process of bedding the 7x57 barreled action into the stock. I'm putting the Vortex 4-12x40 scope on it. I need to hog out the barrel channel a little more too so nothing touches. Rechecking my financial situation that's probably going to do it for this year. But the 6mm build is still on for the future.

    Not a damned thing wrong with a Japanese made gun these days. I have a Howa I wouldn't trade for anything. Since the 70s the Japanese have been into quality and they do it very well. Go for it ojr, I don't think you'll be sorry.

    I've got a Winchester made in the early 80s that's an angle eject or i'd be looking too. It has an old straight 4X Redfield scope on it I bought back in 1966 with my Model 70 push feed Post 63 Model 70 .270. When I upgraded the scope on that I put the Redfield on the .30-30.

    I think it's a bunch of Ca-Ca about scopes breaking up the lines of a lever gun. I think the right scope makes it a 200 yard gun with Hornady Leverrevolution ammo.

    I just bought a M&P15 for the wife, M&P15-22 for my youngest son and ordered a Weatherby Element 12ga. Was tossing around the idea of a Benelli, but decided on the cheaper of the two because it will be easier to explain when the Sig 227 comes in.

    Did you get the 28" barrel Weatherby?  Please let me know how it handles, how it feeds and stuff.  It might make a good quail gun.  My local shop has it for $572.95, which is a dangerous price for an autoloader for me.

    It ain’t as pretty (or light) as the Kimber .243, but my new (to me) .308 Bergara should be a great companion to it.  The scope is 4-12 x 50 Meopta (Cabelas branded).  

    Note: I wish more companies offered thier rifles with synthetic stocks like the one on my rifle.  Instead of a flimsy plastic stock, Bergara uses a glass fiber reinforced stock that feels almost as solid as a wood stock.

    That sucks! Great price for that package. I would have gotten that over the XD (no mod) I just got for $299.

    I did. It is going to be a general purpose gun, mostly duck and pheasant. Im picking it up tomorrow and probably going to the range afterwards, will let you know. I paid $600 and change, but for an autoloader, that's pretty cheap. Usually I think $$$ when I hear Weatherby, but this was very reasonable.

    Thinking about one of them new Glock 48s, just not sure I like the slide color that much.
    Maybe wait til they make it in black?

    Well, I wasn’t planning on this one. Just kinda happened.

    Well the weather finally got nice enough to take my new Heritage Rough Rider .22 mag to the range.  I set a target up at 50' and sent 27 rounds at it.  It holds 9 rounds for those wonder why 27 rounds.  It is stupid accurate!  It took me a couple rounds to figure out elevation because of the type of sights it has, but once there it was dead on.  BTW, I wasn't shooting paper because I wanted instant feedback.  I will say that is a pain to load and unload, but that's something I can live with.

    Sounds good. They are a lot of gun for the money.

    All single actions are slow to load and unload, part of the fun.

    I hate the 7-08 so I’m gonna buy a gun chambered in a less than/equal too round because it’s classic. 
    Sayin. 
    I have a 7x57 that is built on a 98K Mauser action. It gives up NOTHING in speed to the 7mm-08. I don't load it to the 96 Mauser 7x57 specs. Choose an action that will handle the pressure and it isn't something to sneeze at!

    Not slow, a pain.  The loading gate does not line up squarely with the cylinder bore.

    I got this for Christmas. Finally had a range day with it and was quite surprised in its
    shoot-ability considering its a .45. Put 200 rds through it including Gold Dots with out
    any feeding issues. Very happy with it, now looking for IWB holster
