The guy pulled out his check book and said, "put a number in there!" The owner said it isn't for sale.

    I looked for years and years for a decent krag carbine and either the price was more than I could afford or they were too humped up to even think about restoring. This is just so darn nice, not mention rare, that I would never consider selling it.

    That ol boy put a lot of game in the freezer with the one he had.
    The more I'm around people, the more I like sheep, and I hate sheep.

    The Krag is on my list of got to get rifles. I have wanted one ever since 1977, but just never get around to seriously seeking on. I do remember that is had the smoothest bolt action of any rifle I have ever handled, even up to today. And it shot straight and true out to around 400 yds.
    I borrowed an 1898 from a friend the 1st year I went deer hunting back in 1977. I lost the rear sights somewhere out in the boonies, and there was way to much snow to go back looking for it. I got back home gave my friend the rifle back and told him the rear sight fell off and I would replace it no matter what it cost.
    Well that was a very expensive rear sight. It cost me nearly $200, and it took nearly 6 months to find the correct sight.
    Lesson learned, never borrow a gun you can't afford to replace.
    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!
    .45 ACP, Because shooting twice is just plain silly!
