      Old Guns

      Giving some thought about digging out my dads old 303 British. Found some ammo for it at Midway that was fair priced. Anyone else still use the old stuff or just let it rust away.

      No tag, so I'm going to point at them with my 45yr old thumb and forefinger formed into a pistol and say "Pew pew pew".

      Took an antelope buck one year with an 03 Springfield just for fun. Very tempted this year to shoot mine with a model 1892 45 colt, model 94 30-30, or possibly a M16a1 clone I built and had engraved with my dads service details and Seabee emblem even though we all know a 223 is to small for deer.

      Haven't shot my Grandpa's old J. Stevens Crack Shot in quite a while. Looks good hanging on the wall though.

      I have the same rifle as a result of the same situation. I have ammo but haven't shot mine yet either.

      love the old ones and have a few.
      But one day maybe my model 92 in 25-20 from way back when will shoot the same kind of deer that Jordan shot with his model 92 in 25-20.
      I have brought it along with me but then when i actually go on the hunt i somehow lose faith in the 25-20 and end up with a larger caliber by my side. It just is not a deer caliber but still better than that worthless 223.
      I have also hunted with a 284 in a model 100, biggest problem with that gun is a problem with the firing pin and there was a recall on that.
      No longer have but every time is see one it normally is in 308 which would be better and then i am also fuzz on the way the checking was put on. About 5-600 dollars so just need to let lose of some funds.
      Have thought about my model 65 in 218 bee. But not a deer caliber. I guess the one i love best is a model 70 from 1938 in 22 k hornet. It's best i stick with my bow for deer hunting. db

      ​Made this awhile ago.



      Looking back Why did I get rid of any rifle?? Oh well I was just a dumb kid once.


      Winchester 94 long version 25-35


      Marlin lever action Model 62 .256 mag.


      Herters mauser 98 action .257 Roberts. Beautiful wood.


      Stevens bolt action .410


      Winchester model 25 12ga.


      The above were traded in on other rifles or shotguns.


      The ones listed below were gifted or sold at super discount to friends


      Winchester model 61 .22


      Remington model 721 .270


      Ruger first issue model 77 22-250


      Ruger first issue model 77 25-06


      Cz Bruno mauser 98 7mm (7x57)


      Ruger super single six 22-22mag first run


      Remington model 700 adl 6mm




      so if we ever have an old guys get together I will line up and you can take turns kicking my ASS.

      My dad had all three model 100's 243/308/284 the other two went to my brothers. my serial # says 63 but my stock looks to be from a later date not sure why

      he used the 308 for 40 or so years all the way through his final hunt which my son was present In the stand with him. He was going throug chemo and was shakey so when he shot at a doe he missed. He then tried to convince my son to shoot his deer for him which he refused and my dad ended up shooting the next doe that came in. that following year after he passed my 12 yr old sons request was to use the same 308 out of the same stand to take his first doe.
