Sometimes you DO win.....

Post by space » August 21st, 2009, 7:10 pm

I was talking with someone at work today who is recently divorced and in need of a bit of cash. He said he had an old rifle he would sell me for what he owed on his overdue phone bill. He wasn't sure what it was but that it was a lever action.

Went over to his house after work and saw this...

Certainly not new in box but he says there are under 100 rounds through it. Bore looks like it may be true but there is a little bluing wear on the feed tube and on top of the action.

It's a gold plated, Winchester 94. 100 Year commerative 30-30 20" carbine made in 1966.

......his phone bill was $215.

Very nice! So I assume that you bailed him out! If not, tell him to call me before they disconnect him, the money can be there tomorrow!

Yes, I was very happy to help him out and told him I'd sell it back to him anytime for the same price.

He told me that wouldn't happen and he was glad to see it go to a good home.

Good for you. But, how does one have a monthly phone bill of $215.00??

Space, that is sweeeeeeet!

Very nice of you to help out a friend in need.

That would be my new deer rifle since it has been fired.
