Looking good so far. I have my grandfather's old 1903 Mark 1 which he picked up and sporterized in the early '50s. Shoots great, but I wish he had left it intact. It is basically a $250 deer rifle now, instead of a collector's piece. Maybe I'll get bored at some point, and start odering the parts to put it back to original condition. For now, I'll keep using it the way it sits. I miss him now that he is gone, and I think the best way to remember him is to take it out and hopefully get the first buck of the season with it this year. R.I.P. Poppa Bear.
If I have to explain why I ride, you wouldn't understand. Explaining sex to an alien would be easier than explaining the feeling, one that boils all that is going on in your life down to what really matters each time you are in The Wind. All I can say is, Life is not Life without it.
