Ditto. Although I'm unsure of the purpose of this thread and running 20 pages now. Guess it's boys showing off their toys.

My  7 year old granddaughter loves her  bb gun and shows it off to all of her  friends...................in fact, she  got it out yesterday  (under supervision)  and  showed it  to  two of her lacrosse  buddies!  She  wants me  to  show you  a picture of it.

Greymo,

The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels had a special Issue Daisy BB Gun available in their members 'stuff' cataloge in 2009. It sold for $140.00 and the entire inventory was sold in about three months. I was amazed at how quickly those 'air-rifles' disappeared!

Seafarer John, I've never understood why liberal/progressives are so much opposed to firearm ownership. In my mind a liberal belives that each person is allowed to do their own thing as long as it doesn't impact another. Want an abortion? Sure, no problem. Want to smoke weed? Sure, no problem. Actually I believe in both of those. Probably why I'm a moderate.

This thread is like any other on this or any other board. No one makes you read it.

I drink very little alcohol, gamble even less and have never smoked a cigarette in my life. Don't chase after women or men. I guess I have to have some vice. :)

Shame they can't reissue a model 99. They should be able to since they revived it as a single shot for the Jaycees. I wouldn't think twice about buying an updated version for  $250.

No updated versions available, but:

Actually, they did re-issue it once. Well sort of in a single shot version that you had to drop a single BB down the barrel. I think the distribution was very limited and primarly used in the Jaycee's marksmanship program. They had special, precision ground BB's just for use with that version. The '99 was unusual in that it was an adult sized stock, had precision sights (sort of for a BB gun) and a bit of heft to it. I wanted to get one for the kids many years ago. Wasn't worth having one rebuilt with new seals. Ended up getting a Chinese copy of a Crossman 160 bolt action CO2 . That led to one of the girls getting interested in becoming a smallbore prone shooter in the Jr's. Shame she lost interest in her early teens.

I still have my Daisy Red Ryder Carbine #94 that my grandfather gave me about 1955 or so. Did a lot of target shooting  but my cousin and I decided it was more fun to shoot little army men off his electric train set while the train was moving. Took much more skill!

Somewhere around the house I have a photo of my month-old grandson propped against a pillow with a Daisy Model 25 Pump that I'd gotten for him the day he was born. Now the kid plays with SAWs and Ma Deuces.
 
Where did I go wrong?

Any of you do any reloading? I started last year when ammo went up in price so much.

I quit reloading about 25 years ago. When my grandson got hooked on sporting clays about ten years ago I started reloading shotshells again in defense of my wallet. When he went into the Army in 2006 I was able to stop again.

Morgan, UT - John M. Browning could be called the greatest gun designer of all time, and two designs he made for Winchester Repeating Arms, the 1895 and 1886 lever action rifles were a couple of his finest. Expanding on past offerings of these two masterpieces, Winchester Repeating Arms is now offering Grade I configurations in both models.
 
The 1895 Grade I features a deeply blued receiver, lever and barrel.  It has a straight buttplate and satin finish walnut stock and forearm.   The adjustable buckhorn rear sight and sculpted front blade remind you of guns of past generations.   The addition of a tang safety in addition to the standard hammer safety adds a little modern touch to the rifle.  The 1895 Grade I is available in 405 Winchester, 30-40 Craig and 30-06.  It is a beautiful rifle with a link to the past.  Suggested retail price is $1,179.00
 
The 1886 Extra Light Grade I rifle also features a deeply blued receiver, lever and barrel.  In addition, it has a blued steel end cap and straight buttplate.  The rifle features a classic half length magazine for the 45-70 cartridges that the rifle is chambered for. The sight on the 1886 is an adjustable rear buckhorn design with a bladed front. The rifle also is designed with a tang safety.   Suggested retail price of the 1886 is $1,269.00
 
Both the 1895 and 1886 are being made in very limited quantities.   Interested gun owners should contact their local Winchester Repeating Arms dealer immediately if they are interested in buying one.

Michael,
  Have you heard anything about them reintroducing the Winchester Modell 88 lever action? I had a .308 version of that gun many years ago. Wife made me sell it...should have sold her at the time... Anyway I am interested in renewing my relationship with a Model 88 some day. If you hear of one on the market, please let me know

Al, you should have. I'm fortunate PP has never put that kind of pressure on me. She used to shoot quite a bit when she was healthy.

Mike,
  To Clarify..I was describing Wife 1  who was sent packing back in '86. Wife 2 (a 1995 model) is still under warrenty, and seems to be a keeper !

I will watch for those Model 88's. Honestly I don't hunt with large caliber rifles anymore...but the nostalgia bug has brought me to search out my first big-bore. Oh how I wish I had purchased a Garand M1 back in the days of the cheap military guns...just for display.  But a display isn't worth a grand to me today !!

I have a Carbine (M1 not an M2) and a Tokarev Model 33 brought home from SEA (fires 7.63 Mauser ammo) so I do have a couple of 'military memories'... But the Garand and the Model 88 would complete my return to the days of my youth !

I enjoy reading this thread, though being a resident of the People's Republic of Maryland, I get a bit jealous of the ease many posters here have in getting guns, and the great prices they seem to pay.
 
I have a C&R license so that helps a little, but those of you who live in real 'Free' states, I salute you.
 
Of course any guns I may have owned were lost in a tragic boating accident.

Sorry to hear about your terrible boating accident. I assume King Neptune won't give them up till they pry them from his cold dead hands.

I'm reading more and more about tragic boating accidents and the loss of equipment. What a shame! Just glad no one gets physically hurt.

Yeah, you'd think we would learn but we keep getting magically drawn to boats with our guns.   I'm picking up a Ruger P95 next week and I hope I'll be able to keep it out of the Chesapeake Bay.

I was looking at a new Kimber Ultra-Carry II with Crimson Trace grips this morning for just under a thousand. That would free up my Combat Commander to become my grandson's -- or to make it's new home in my safe.

Mark, good to hear from you! I'm sorry to hear about the incidents at your local range. That's just tragic.

I haven't been doing as much handgun shooting this year. I bought an AR-10 back in early March. It is a semi-auto in .308/7.62x51 caliber that looks like an M-15/16. I've never shot much rifle until now. So now I reload 100 rounds and then go shot them. Had to learn how to load for rifles too. A lot of learning going on.

I have a 5.56 AR-15 on order, should be here within the week. Another learning process.

Michael, my local gun store owners and employees all carry a Kimber of some flavor or another. All in .45acp I believe. They all swear by them. So I don't think you'd go wrong with one. Not my cup of tea though. I'm not a big 1911 fan.
