Default 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 " ?

A Browning A-Bolt II Micro Medallion in .308. In near mint condition.

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.

I doubt it will be a common occurrance, though I still appreciate it even if this is the only time.
