I finally found my " White Whale "
 
I finally found a gun I have been looking for ... for a lot of years. I found it on gunbroker.com, and started bidding. I was in the lead @ 675.00, then someone else ( who had no rating ) began to bid against me. I got back in the lead @ 810.00, and decided to stop there. The other person bid 815.00 and I thought I had lost it[:@]... Then later I found out that my wife was the other bidder..... She was bidding against me, because she said she wanted to buy it for me since I had been looking for one soooo long. I know she loves me, and I appreciate the thought, but I would have rather had it @ 675.00 and just let her pay for it;).... But I love her for it anyway.

My " white whale " ?

They stopped making the Micro Medallion back in about 1993.

The micro hunter is still available, but the Micro Medallion is not, and it has been difficult to find one.
