I think with this money I'm going to get the two tires my car needs and maaaybe, just maybe, that Henry Lever Repeater.

I AM SO EXCITED!!!
Wow...NICE.

I think you'll really like the Henry.

I can get the tires AND the Henry. I have about $150 stashed away in my gun fund. After buying the tires and with my stash, I'll have enough for the Henry. I'm getting the youth model........because I'm pretty darned short. My LOP is only about 11 inches.
IIRC, I saw a brand new Henry online for about $150 a while back. I don't remember exactly what model it was though. It was one of the golden ones, but it looked kind of cheap.

I have the golden boy (or big boy? I forget) in .45 colt, it was $800.

I think the RF's are more than $150, but I don't know that for sure....been awhile since I looked at them.

I just bought a 22lr octagon barreled one. It was $330 before tax.

Yeah, I think this one was cheap for a reason. The brass looked like cheap plastic. It looked nothing like the higher dollar ones.

OK, how's this for random?

I was telling my boys about when I worked for the car dealership and they would have a blood drive once a year, well one year I was in line with the dealership owner and the general manager behind me. Now, the owner is a really cool guy, I liked him a lot and he was a genuine down-to-earth decent person. We got along very well on a personal level. The GM on the other hand was a dirty cotton rocksucker. Anyhow, I am talking to the owner and the GM is getting a bit peeved and all. It comes my turn to get my blood drawn I whip my belt out of my pants, loop it around my bicep and clench it in my teeth and tell the gal to go for it.

Hilarious! The GM thought I was a junkie and the owner knew I was just messing with them.

I was wondering where you went. You didn't miss too much, just the usual. There were a few fights here and there that ended with someone getting the ban hammer upside the head. A few more of us are on the Govs list, and Winds has to work overtime to keep everybody from getting into more trouble. Also, Marlinman ate the goat, so we need to find a new one.

Talking about missing people..........where the heck is Muliemaster? He hasn't been here in a while. I hope all is well with him. He's been having a bit of bad luck lately. I hope he is okay.

Has anyone heard from him? I know some of you keep in touch with him offline.
