I acquired my Browning a few years ago...just before the current snafu we're all dealing with. It is a MKIII and I actually ordered it from a store. Just went in and asked if they were a browning dealer. They said they don't carry them much any more as they are expensive and don't sell well.
They said they could order one...I said HECK YEAH! Viola...three days later I was shooting my brand new Browning...my favorite at the time....still love that gun!
Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
