Re: How did you get your first deer rifle?
i was home on leave from the air force back in 82 and a old farmer drinking buddy of my dads was over the house. he was dying of cancer and he would come over and drink my dads beer and smoke my cigarettes cause his wife gave him heck if he did it at home. we got to talking deer guns and i mentioned that i wanted to buy a pump 270. he said "i have one i'll sell ya". i figured it was the beer talking and didn't think anything of it. a month or so later my dad called me at the base i was stationed at in louisiana and said he had a 270 pump waiting for me. $130 and mint condition. i got a lot of deer with that gun before i retired it about 10 years ago. old george didn't last long after that. i can still see him sitting there, sucking down my marlboros and dads draft Stoneys.
