Yep, and I bet a bunch of 'em would start something like "Holy ****, are you nuts!"You know, if I had the money I'd buy it, handle it, clean it, load it & shoot it. After that I'd handle it some more and buy dies for it. A very Purdy rifle but it would see many, many days at the range. Can you imagine the conversations?
Why couldn't you shoot it?Thats a real beauty. It is a shame if one owned it you can't shoot it. I recently bought an 1894 golden spike 30-30. After pondering a while about value and not shooting it, I realized I have a great gun to trade with to get a JM stamped 45-70!!!!!! :biggrin:
