For those that don't know, I'm a huge fan of honest wear on a firearm. I think the scuffs, dings, and worn finishes are beautiful in their own right, telling a story of years of service. Whether those service years be putting food on the family table, keeping the wolves at bay and protecting the hearth, or all out war, spilling blood in battles around the world.

These are the battle scars of our tools. Living is a hard thing to do. I love imagining the stories that a well worn rifle could tell if it could only speak.
Thanks Trip, but believe it, or not that rifles been used on and off since the 80's. Most of my guns are in that condition. I guess I just take real good care of my guns. Around 25 years ago I was hunting with my Griffin & Howe when walking through fallen leaves my foot went under a branch covered by them. I went flying forward and as I fell I thought of that beautiful rifle getting damaged, so I raised it over my head and cushioned the fall with my face gently. My partner who was walking along side me couldn't stop laughing. I didn't get hurt and neither did the gun. Here's a Winchester SRC Trapper 44-40 made in 1898 that may upset you as well. I won't post the others cause it'll really get ya. Be well.

No offense, but I would love to beat your guns with a stick...
There's a quote on how a person should arrive at their own funeral. I'll have to see if I can find it.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the
intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body,

but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW-- What a Ride!"

HELP!!!

I don't blame you, but that '92 is like my baby. I do have others with a bit more patina. Maybe this Winchester will make you more comfortable. It's been around since 1900 and works a lot better than I do. I can appreciate a man who likes a Winchester. You remind me of my old partner who always said that he cleaned his gun by shooting it. He loved to drive me nuts.

Thank you. I also like a gun that has character and is intimidating.

That's great, if only he had a beta mag and it was black.
