I've got a 67 with the grooved stock that was given to me by an old friend who died last year at 86.He got it new as a real young man and kept it all his life.It was his first gun and the last to get rid of.It shoots great but looks warn.I just cant bring myself to redue it.It would clean up nicely but in refinishing the stock I'd have to remove the Easter Bunny decal he put on it so many years ago.I think I'll just leave it be,I remember old Emil every time I look at the easter bunny.........thanks Emil for your memorys

Kaintuck,

That is just FANTASTIC! Great find, one of these days I'll get a Winchester bolt action .22.

About 10 years before he died dad got a WW2 commemorative Luger for WW2 victory. That war changed him for life but it also helped make him what with the experience, the GI bill and all, helped propel him to going from farmer, truckdriver, soldier, to medical doctor! Anyway one of my favorite pictures is of me holding the commemorative Luger and dad holding his REAL one, personally taken off of a dead German officer in eastern France. I keep the picture with the pistols. That is really cool you have that picture of your mom shooting when she was 17 and now with the same model rifle you are going to update the picture. You will always cherish it and I can sure see why you are happy!

that ole 67

One just like that one sitting in the back of my gun-safe. My Mother's rifle. My first rifle. My Grandad had me shooting it with him holding it up before I quit dirtying my pants. A lot of kids fired it as a first gun, and several killed their first squirrel or groundhog with it. Many beeves and hogs dropped by it, as we killed and processed for a meat store in town. I also killed neighbors sick animals with it. Usually paid me 50 cents and that would buy a box of shorts. The stock has been redone, the rear sight replaced by a homemade sight and there is not a speck of blue on it. But if a gun ever earned it's keep this one has! long live single shots!
