Re: Gun Value
Great looking rifles. Always wanted one, but they've appreciated in price to the point I'll probably never own one.
Some years ago a young feller showed up at our club range with one in 30-30 that was in mint condition. Literally. Zero wear anyplace, perfect wood/metal finish. He fired a few shots and plopped it on the bench, went downrange to check his target.
When he came back, another shooter and I chastised him for treating it so poorly. His wife's granny had given it to him, had been gramp's rifle. He had no idea of it's monetary value, until we told him.
