I still love an old wood stocked rifle or wood gripped hog leg. I will start out with a couple. Lets see some purty guns!

I have always like the little Browning rifles, but they dont get much recognition. Ruger 10/22 put the hurt on them years ago, but them Brownings are money in the bank.

Revolvers are a weakness for me, especially single actions. Lever guns cause me problems too.

X2 - especially with rolling down the bottom edge of the grip.
I had a Vaquero Birds Head, but it almost felt too small when shot. Kinda like it rolled and bucked at the same time.

By the way, that Scoefield is about one of the only 3 things left on my gun bucket list.

In 1982 I bought a S&W Schofield at a gun show in New Orleans. I never had it dated but it had some history. The man I bought it off of said it was a pimp's gun and it had "Big Mary" burned into the grip. It had no bluing left, but was shootable. Out of ignorance I traded it off for two Remington 788 rifles, a Buena Vista saddle and a cur coon dog. True story.

When S&W Performance Center remade the Schofield I bought one.

Beautiful big bore in perhaps my favorite classic African caliber! Thanks for sharing!

I will post some of my pieces here in the next few days.

Thank you for your service sir.
Let me ask you a question. How do you know they are coyotes after you shoot them with a .404 Jeffrey ?

Awesome firearms guys. These I do not own and I have always lusted after this set. This would be my Holy Grail if I could add them to my collection. My idea of a Purdy gun(s).
