Nice story, Charles!  That rifle is a family heirloom!

BTW, you're a spittin' image of your dad.  One would think you two were related or something!

That's a great story and it's cool when someone can own a rifle like that.

Very nice story.  My dad and I have started hunting more and more together since I left the Army and as I've passed through my late 30s into my 40s.  I've slowly started to pry away some of his rifles from him.  Usually it's in the guise of "hey, let me borrow that and glass the stock" or "hey, let me borrow that--I've always wanted to rechamber a 7mm Mag into a .338 Win Mag."  So far, it's working, but it helps that he almost exclusively bow hunts.  At least he hasn't asked for any of them back yet.Bandito
Thanks for posting.
