My dad gave me a 999 Sportsman in 1969. I put a lot of rounds through it, even used it to hunt groundhogs. 9 shots, convenient top-break action. To this day I regret selling it. I want another one.

Keep trying smaller shops and gunshows. Saw one at the gunshow at Split Rock last weekend, but I don't remember what shop had it.

Everything is controlled by a small evil group to which, unfortunately, no one we know belongs.

Be prepared to pay for one, in good shape they usually go over $300.
Always liked them, kinda like a mini Webley.

Re: hr 999 .22 lr

yeah i'm not worried about paying 300 for one, the taurus 990 i was looking at i think is like 400 so it's not a big deal,I just like the break open which is cool.

Re: hr 999 .22 lr

You just have to keep checking gunshops and online auctions. For one in decent condition you will pay at minimum $300, on up to over $500 for a nice unit.

I got lucky and bought one for $299 at Gandermountain in Johnstown PA on X-mas Eve last year. Its in [censored] fine condition, made in 1941, and came with original box and manual.

What you may want to do is, make a wishlist and pass them out to the FFL's in your area. Let them know you are looking for one if they happen to be offered one in trade. Note on the paper the all the details you are looking for, like; condition, serial # range, barrel length, etc, etc. That way they might be more likely to take in as trade knowing you will buy it. Just about all the storefront FFL's for in a 80 mile radius has a wishlist from me that I update once every 2-6 months depending on if I score on something. ..its helped me gain a few guns I was looking for.

If you have to track your game, then you aren't using a big enuff gun.
