Paul was visiting on our annual Lake of the Ozarks trip and rode it out with me in the gun problem. However, the storm had killing consequenses for my Lab, Bela who had to be put down...a very sad day. Paul has some amazing pictures.

I finally have a contractor who will fix the house. Much more damage found that is in addition original guesstimate. We haven't had any rain around here since the tornado, however, we are under a sever Weather Watch tonight including severe thunderstorms and tornado watch!

Simply beautiful!
Not all of them are ignorant but they certainly represent the vast majority!
I was going to sell my Husqvarna M1600. The rifle was born in early 1954 SN166522. It is marked 30-06 U.S. and has the crown nitro seal on the barrel. The plastic butt plate has the Husqvarnabrinks crest and an import mark from Williamsburg Virginia. The rifle itself is a modified small ring Mauser and has many improvements like the long easy to use safety and of course the huge claw extractor. The rifle is in near mint mint condition with a 23 1/2 barrel that is bright and gauges at <.1 ME.. I love the schnable forend and the checkering on the grip. Operationally it has two feature I really like....the easy button you press down to remove the bolt and the easy pull toggle to drop the floorplate. Check out the pictures of this 69 year old treasure which I am not going to sell!

Good to hear. I like the rather heavier than normal barrel. Those pencil barrels are cheaper and the don't seem to shoot that straight. Everyone these days want  a six pound canon!!

The big Gun Show at Tulsa will probably be my last, why......Too many non gun sellers taking up space and the long lines to just get in. That said I did sell a M1Carbine and found new deer rifle for Owen as he has now outgrown his Mossberg Youth .243. I was looking for a .270 for him resulting that Rick, Owen and Evan will all be shooting the Winchester .270 simplifying the reloading effort. I found him an unfired Smith and Wesson in , 270. I bet everyone is shaking their heads ?????? Smith and Wesson? Yep, here's the story. Back in the mid 70's S&W went up against Sako and Weatherby and designed the rifle. They were built in Japan by Howa for 2 years and the program was abolished. The 1500 was and is a fine rifle and came in standard and deluxe models. Not many of the  deluxe rifles were made (nobody seems to know how many) and I found one in .270. Here are some pictures. As you can see it looks like a cross between a Sako ans a Weatherby.



Terrific picture!

Quote from: Jorge in Oz;156908Hi Guys,

Going through came across a most expensive Sako that even Rick wouldn't buy. I believe it could be a typo but sure is dear.

Check it out

Your thoughts gentlemen. :eek:

I wouldn't buy it because I own one. Paid $900 some 20 odd years ago.

Does your rifle have the rear sight mounted on the rifle? It depends on the size of the scope you are planning to use in any case. I have a set of medium rings that would work on a scope with a small objective lens.
