I feel lucky more than anything. I've seen way to many 06's slip off into stupidville as the bids escalated. I don't think I've seen one go for less than a grand in over a year.

Scrolling through I found a red-butted No. 1 chambered in 30-06, with outstanding furniture. The price was a piddling compared to what I had seen this same rifle go for, so I put in a bid that I knew would never land the gun for me. My max bid was $800.

Just a short while ago I was going through my email and saw that I had won the darn thing with a bid of $770! My first thought was that somehow I had made a mistake. Had I bid on a gun that was unusable? Was the barrel filled with rust?

Once again I went over the pictures carefully and could not see any fatal flaws. The gun was manufactured in 1978, so some wear would be natural, but there is very little sign of wear.









Thank God I've figured out a way to get the gun in the house and into the safe with no one being the wiser...

Out of curiosity, I'm thinking of having my 6mm 1v converted to an Ackley Improved, and then selling it. Anyone interested?
Lonnie,

Don't forget the old gun quote. It is better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission.

My wife loves NCIS, and is therefore a big Gibbs fan. That just might work, but I'll wait until I get... Um... Caught
