Is it just me, or are lever action rifles cool?

I'm pretty sure that everyone who is anyone has at least one lever action.

I have a Winchester Model '94 saddle ring carbine in .30 WCF, made around 1900, that was my uncle's saddle gun when he was riding the cattle range in Colorado back in the '20's. It came with a well worn saddle scabbard and has a beautiful aged patina brown finish. Still shoots great too!

My other lever gun is a Rossi M92 SRC in .357 Mag.. Bought it back in the early 80's for less than $200. What a fun, accurate rifle it is!

I've only used a lever .22 once, but I gotta say it makes a nice change from having to rack a bolt every time

I've always loved lever guns. Once I have a little more coin saved up I think my next gun will be a lever .357
