That fine Mauser posted on this thread is such a rifle. The owner is one of those discriminating gun owners.
Thank you sir. My collection goes from the mundane to that Mauser on the high end though I do have a love for fine firearms there are only so many my budget will allow for. I hope to add a fine English double in the near future and I hope that will be a nice showpiece. I was blessed with a supportive and infinitely understanding wife.
But like my children, when t comes to firearms I love them all. I have a passion for old .22 and some of my favorite guns are production Mossbergs from the 40's and 50's.
