    My Wife Is Going To Be Mad When She Gets Home

    So my buddy has been helping a widow liquidate her late husbands gun closet. For the last year I have listen to him talk about a Savage 99. Hes not a fan of lever guns but knows I am. So he finally got his hands on it and brought it by the house today. Its a pristine 1957 Savage 99F in .308. Sold as soon as I saw it in the driveway. Then he pulls out a 1950 WInchester 94 in 32 Special complete with a steel Lyman peep sight. I bough them both. I took a couple of quick pictures that dont do either rifle justice.

    The 99 has a classic Redfield Bear Cub 1.75x20 scope. A couple of real classic Maine woods guns. Ill post more pictures when I have time and let you know how they shoot!

    A lever safe 99F is a thing of beauty and joy. You did well! The 94 in 32 Special is a great gun too. Spend some time loading for it and you may find it becomes a real favorite for carrying in the bush. Very, very, nice afternoon you had there!
