Yup, didn't really figure I should be thinking about a new toy at the moment, as this is a nearly inert time of the year for my business. After forfeting my "get out of jail free card" the Mrs volunteered to kick in a couple hundred. Went to the gun store and found a Win 94 22mag last week. The guy said it was $299. Went back today and he again said it was $299, but there was no price tag hangin on it. I had earlier called a couple other places and found them to be at about $389, one place had a sale on for 10% off that. So I commenced to proceed with the paper work. He said he'd get the box. Came back and said OH I was wrong it's $399. There just so happened to be a bunch of customers standing around who heard all this so he says "It was my mistake so I give it to ya fer $350". Was considering an 882 SS marlin but I got the lever bug bad and don't want to insult the other traditional old timey looking blued steel & wood in the safe so... Can't wait to shoot it. But it barely went above 0 today. I will shoot her tomarrow regardless. May not have the K 2.5 weaver on then so I will come back later on 100yard plus tests. Yup I knew in 1979 that she (wife) was a keeper fer sure.
