Default It's All Your Fault...

...that I find myself in the same position as Bronko awhile back with his new 375. The story...
Last Saturday I was at a gun auction when a Ruger Old Army, NIB, came across the block. Having read about them here and other places and with the bidding moving slowly and well under what I thought was a good price I stuck my hand up. Well, rats, so did three other people and by the time they swung around the room I had the bid for slightly more than I wanted. I am a cheapskate so it wasn't that much. One guy bid again and I thought "why not" and bid again and I am the proud owner of a ROA.

Now, do I shoot it?

That's a personal choice. I sure shot my 375 Big Bore and glad I did. What a fun gun. No sense keeping them for someone else to enjoy. Especially at my age.
Lately I find myself wanting to go to the range and pop a few caps over sitting in the woods waiting for something to happen by! Now don't get me wrong. I still like being out there enjoying God's creation but on a cold frosty morning, a nice cozy bed is nice too!

Do you want a paper weight or a gun?

Go shoot!

Just think of the empty hole in your life that would have occurred without you even knowing about it if you hadn't read about that gun/caliber here? You could have been traumatized unnecessarily.

A brilliant modern sledgehammer! Iím a caliber snob, so Iím preferring the .416 Ruger, but the 375 obviously does the job, and has already grown sufficient global presence where it matters to alleviate many availability and customs clearance concerns.
