    Well the GBA (Guy Buying Anonymous) classes aren't working!! Picked up this sweet Marlin 1897 yesterday! Made in 1902 and in great shape! Lever action, octagon barrel in I would say around 80-85% Wood is very good! Here are a couple pics. I will take some more on Wednesday and hopefully they will be better. gun1.jpg gun2.jpg gun3.jpg gun4.jpg

    Nice, brother. Looks like you're at the club. You know you could've called me to come help you shoot it.

    If I can't shoot it then I don't want it. .22's are made to shoot not fondle.

    Well Cs I may get around to it. I'll have to bring a truck load of them out one day and start shooting a few. Twang will come, maybe shrek, Cajun, bas an Bobcat and anyone else who wants to spend the next day cleaning them!!!!

    Cleaning a .22 will screw up the way it shoots. :D

    I hear you Twang!! Skeet season is over for the most part the first week of October. I will be happy to come straight from work and get the critters out and set them up!!! Thant's a plan!!!

    Jeff the wood is very good. The metal for 115 years old is in good shape as well I'll have better pics Wed.

    I have a feeling Southern Reloading will never earn his Gun Buyers Anonymous coin! Nice snag by the way!

    I'll have to buy Shelia some shoes or bling bling. She has stated that I have enough guns.
