    This came home to live with me.

    Savage, 250-3000 serial number shows it was made in 1916.

    This is my friends grandands horse gun. After a long probate process he finally received it.

    However he can't keep fire arms in his house. ( His wife won't let him). So it's going to live with me.

    This gun looks born to shoot cast boolits.

    It's in rough shape cracked stock that was glued and screwed together. And some pitting.

    Nice. It looks like it would still be a great shooter too.

    I have one similar.The bore on mine doesn't look good but surprisingly it shoots accurately.I made up a couple of extra barrels to play with,it's a fun gun.

    I just bought a 99eg in 250/3000, 1950 vintage. Didn't want a eg but 250s are scarce in these parts.
    I had a straight stock 99 carbine when I was a kid, I don't remember what model it was. Around here
    anything other than 303sav or 300sav is a collector's item, and price shows it.

    To settle the question. She runs a daycare out of the house. And the she would loose her license if a gun is present I. The home. Regardless of where it's locked up

    Good deal for you! My nephew parks most of his guns here as he is a migrating welder. And I shoot most of them...

    Had a friend who would always show up on Saturdays to shoot with us. Had a Springfield M1A1 and he loved it. Just about everyone in our group would shoot each others rifles. Think I was the first to notice he no longer showed up. Finally found out that he had gotten married and his new wife said no guns. Asked around about his guns and found a dealer I knew who had them on consignment. He related me the story. My wife knew about the guns long before we got married so is/was ok with it. Frank

    My wife and I target practiced many times together before we got married. She had her guns before we even met.

    Two downsides: She claims some of mine, not to sell but what she forbids of ME to sell.

    The other issue is that she regularly outshoots me!

    Life is good!

    Right after my wife and I were married, she said that one of her friends asked her if she was going to make me get rid of my guns, as if that was a perfectly natural and reasonable thing. She replied “Why on earth would I do that?.

    So you lose your daycare license if you have unloaded, locked up guns but its ok to have drain cleaner, insecticide, electricity, etc. that causes far more accident child deaths?

    Sounds about right.
