Winchester / Re: Photos of my new-to-me Highwall

I paid about $150.00 more than what I paid for my new one (plus auction fees). But these don't come up all that often, and seem to be in demand. When I saw it on the auction site, I followed it up until the day before the live bidding, and then jumped on it with my bid. I didn't think I had won it, but guess they rounded my bid up $10.00 to the next increment. Yaaaay!

Thanks guys. My wife still won't let me go to the basement, which is where I REALLY want to be; that's where most of my toys are! But I understand, it would be very easy to over-do down there and hard to get back upstairs. Patience grasshopper!

I posted photos of my 40-65 Browning BPCR, here are a few of my 45-90 BPCR. Unfortunately, just 2 weeks post-op for hip replacement, I won't be able to pick the rifle up until July. These are auction photos.

Follow-up visit with the surgeon yesterday. Got some things done: removed the 38 staples, told me I no longer had to wear compression stockings ( both very welcome) and cut down my daily Tylenol prescribed use. Feeling a bit more comfortable today.

A few years ago there was a series on Public Television detailing Custer's life. I can't remember what it was called, but a search should find it.

Hi Shawn, great to meet you. Welcome from Wisconsin. Second Gen. Colts have been climbing up in value over the years, I had 2 of them years ago that I sold to a friend. He said he would be shooting them, but he did offer the 1st Mdl. Dragoon back to me for the price he paid. He didn't shoot that one. Yep.....pictures are required!

Very nice, you must have been a good boy! That is probably the fanciest "wear plate" I have seen.
