Re: Guns!


Jeeze... now you boys are making me want to do some target shooting again...

From a very young age, my grandfather (farmer), taught me how to hold, carry, load, care for and shoot the many guns he had on his farm. There are a few he wouldn't let me touch or see... but I believe that was because they were hidden for a reason.... As my grandfather is now in the care of my parents, he still has his guns, doesn't go out any more... Im looking into taking my courses, and getting permits and such. I have a good buddy here who likes to go out to the range with some vintage fire power he owns.

I'm a big collector of 1911 I have a kimber, old colt , and Wilson combats. I don't own a pistol without a hammer I just don't trust them most special forces still have guns with hammers and the delta force still soley uses a Wilson combat 1911 they are expensive but worth it

I could go on and on about that but it'd get political pretty quick.

So on another note, I've been messing with my (heirloom) Savage 1899C 30-30 lately. I love the unusual look of the 1/2 & 1/2 barrel.

Man I love this rifle. There's a fellow who has all the factory records and will "letter" any 1895,1899, 99 and a few other Savages, too. I'm going to send off for one for this rifle, I can't wait to find out any more about it.

What I've learned about it so far, since my dad gave it to me a few years ago, it was my great grandfather's and he may have bought it new. It was mfd. in 1901 and is all original, including finish, and in great shape except for some pitting in the bore. My dad thinks that's from way back my GGF used black powder ammo at times.

As soon as I get a chance I've got to get to the range and see how accurate it still is. Hopefully there's still some life left in the bore. I'll be real sad if it isn't at least accurate enough to think about getting back into deer hunting with it. (It's no safe queen so don't get upset.)

Attachment 51551

Attachment 51552

Attachment 51553

While I'm at it I'll spend some "me time" with the G22. I want to get a few boxes of different brands and loads of JHP's and see what she likes the best, then stock up on that. I figure it'll help to prepare for the CCW course anyway.

You sure that is a C? i am guessing it is not but having it lettered may tell you. If you go to 24hourcampfire.com and go to the Savage forum those guys will tell you for sure. My ex-wifes 1st husband is on there and he used to own what used to be probably the worlds largest Savage collection of 1899/99 rifles. He and his father collected over 400 of at least 97% condition rifles. Some of these guns had never seen daylight since new and were still in their original box. After his fathers passing he went on a selling spree but he still as a few left. He knows how to identify Savages better than Savage himself. I got into buying/selling savages for awhile but they are very hard to find and way over priced. They are a gorgeous gun though of great quality and hold there value very well. I can say that gun you have is worth an easy $1200-$1500. I would be careful shooting it with large loads so you do not crack the wood at the tang. Whatever you do please do not try to "fix" it or "restore" it as the value will drop badly and this would make the Savage collectors cry.

No more than the average hunter walking down the street with his rifle during hunting season. People have been cowed into fearing guns by decades of liberal propaganda. Places like Israel and Switzerland have open carry and people don't bat an eyelid because they're not taught to fear their fellow citizens.

Re: Guns!


Wow.....I would love to shoot this one.


What do you get when you merge two .45 caliber pistols into one with a sleek new design?

A whole lot of compact stopping power, also known as the Arsenal Firearms AF2011.
