    Are you American? A foreigner perhaps? Some kind of weirdo? Why do you not have a levergun?  I don’t really understand how that is possible.

    Ppppffffffttttt!

    .45 Colt Rossi’s. 



    I do have an older Winchester 94 in .30-30 I got from my uncle. I don’t think it’s pre-64 but I do need to check the serial numbers for a date. Don’t have any pics of it. Took the last deer from my home state with it and irons.

    For some reason, I just don’t like curved pistol grips on lever guns. It just looks aesthetically wrong.

    Of all my guns, this one is my favorite. Marlin 1894 in 357 mag. I hope this gun stays in my family for a very very long time.  And you don’t want to know how much I paid for it several years ago. When I bought it this was still attached to the lever.  July of 1981 and it had never been shot until I bought it 7 or 8 years ago

    This was this was my pops 1940’s Winchester Model 94 .32 Special. It was manufactured between 1943 and 47 when Winchester stopped recording serial numbers because of WWII. 

    It’s now factory new and in mint condition. My pop stopped hunting in 1988. He put it un-cased in his attic six blocks from the ocean. When he passed in 2008 my stepmom sent it to me. It was fully covered in rust along with his 1953 AYA double barrel covered in rust.  I wasn't sure they were salvable.  You couldn't even break the lever action open.

    My gunsmith was able to save both of them. I hunt with each one every now and then. These are two of the four real treasures I own. I also have my 1960 Browning SA .22 and my buddies dads 1949 Browning Sweet 16.

    Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    .243 and .358 pre-64s are VERY desirable! 👍

    Top one is a Glenfield 30-30 w/ Weaver K4. It was my first centerfire gun. Bought it around 1980. Killed my 1st deer with it. My youngest son has killed a few with it. No idea how old it is. 

    Bottom is a Marlin 336 in 30-30. Bought it about 3-4 yrs ago. 1971 vintage. Didn’t need it but couldn’t refuse the price.
