    WELCOME Russell. You're list of levers probably brightened some folks day! A few may be a bit envious, too! Did you notice the tide seeming lower with Talladega going on this weekend. Daughter and son-in-law there with the other umpteen thousand NASCAR nutz. Just wondering if it changes the center of gravity of AL A BAMA?

    Actually I represent .001% of Alabamians. I don't watch NASCAR and could care less who wins the iron bowl :). I'd rather be outdoors.

    Good point. I thought about listing my 1895gsltd here but listed it on another sight because of the lack of for sale rifles seemed odd. Figured I'd feel it out more first. I've gotten a ruger no1 bug in me and am considering selling a couple marlins that have been in the box for to many years.

    Doing a fair bit of "crowing"
    Why so many rifles, of the same Calibre ,and not use them ?
    You a dealer ?
    Or, have you got your finger in the Vaseline Jar a bit too much ?

    Not a dealer. I dont consider myself a collector. I'm an 45-70 enthusiest I guess. More of an obsession with the 45-70 itself.
