    I think there is something wrong with my head! Last week I was going through my safe & decided I had more than enough (I hate to say "to many") 30-30 lever guns. I pulled them out, & looked them over, at this point I realized that two of them I have never even fired. I chose a 1964 Winchester model 94 to put a for sale sign on it. It sold the very next day. I gave half the money to my loving wife, & spent the other half on reloading supplies.

    Yesterday, I did some "wheelin & deelin". In the proses ended up with a 4 power Leupold pistol scope, Leupold rings, on a Leopold base for a Thompson Contender. I don't own a TC, so obviously it needed to be traded off for something ells. Last night I E-mailed a buddy of mine who has a use for this set up. He just left my house with it, & I'm now the proud owner of a 1958 Marlin 336 RC in 30-30.

    I think I may be nuts.

    I agree that you are nuts. .. not because you have too many 30-30s or that you sold one just to turn around and do a few trades, only to end up with a different one. Nope, not because of any of these reasons. You are nuts because there are 2 safe queen virgins in your house.

    A few years back I brought home a 1976 Glenfield model 30A, in 30-30. It has the "stamped" checkering & deer head in the stock (that is a little ruff) and some of the bluing is gone. For reasons beyond my comprehension, my wife fell in love with it.

    Last night my wife picked up that 336, ran the lever a few times, dry fired it a few times, then looked at me with this big smile :winkkiss: & said, "this one's mine"! I said "what about the Glenfield", she tells me "do what ever you want with it, this one's mine".

    I may be putting the Glenfield up for trade! Any one want to trade there 30-30 for my 30-30!:bluelaugh:

    I am jealous, I am saving pennies so I can get my first 30-30. Hopefully by summer I will have one. Lol they are a lot cheaper for us southpaws than a bolt action.

    Know what you mean: I put 2 of my Taurus PT-145's in the safe before we went on a cruise to Alaska, left (I thought) the third one out and hidden in the house. When we came back I could NOT find that third one for over a year! Then while rummaging around in the safe for ammo, there it was in the back corner!

    I have a friend (yes, I have some) that "lost" an Airweight in a wicker basket on the table beside his easy chair for months. It was so light he kept missing it when he picked the basket up. Guess he didn't dig down to the bottom much.

    Oh, you are nuts! As long as you don't take any meds you'll be OK. Trading off a perfectly good pistol scope when all you needed was a pistol, shame on you.
