    My fascination with firearms was when I was about 10 years old. That's 60 years ago. My first rifle was a Remington bolt action. My first pistol was a Ruger 22 auto n the same time period at 18 years old. I took off running with the love of shooting and guns after that and I haven't slowed down at all. I have to drive almost 40 miles to the range in Ames, Ia and I've been doing that for 45 years.

    In your sandals I'd never sell it either. Those bolts polish up real pretty I discovered on my last old Mossberg. Ended up doing them all.
    It's in fine shape, should be out where folks can enjoy looking at it.

    It pained me terribly to hear you crushed, so I cut my hair, tossed my ladies undergarments and crossed back over where I belong. And no more track for me.

    Are we good again? PULEEEEZE.
