pdk, 30 years old IS new!!!!!......to me......
30 years ago I was 46.
Time is a funny thing. You never really notice it or pay attention to it untill you realize you are getting old. It kinda creeps up on you until one day it hits you on the side of the head and all of a sudden its here. Where did all the time go.
Now then, why did I just mention this and kind of ramble on ?
I just realized that the Weatherby rifle I was given ( gift from the LGS store) is 15 years old and I always considered it a NEW rifle. What the heck? There is nothing new about it. But In my feeble old mind, it is a new rifle just like my nearly new Brno 22 that I bought in 1969.
Maybe a" new "gun is subjective .
Its time to take my meds and get a new tin foil hat.
eastbanks, i use 140gr nosler partit. in my 7-08. thought about trying 120grs but wondered how effective they would be.
That's all true. However, in this instance what I was referring to was my attraction to pre-WWII and WWI firearms. All of which are older than me by at least 8 to 14 years....which makes me 10 years younger than eastbanks........as if that means spit anymore.
My newest rifles are still over 30 years old and are reproductions of 19th century firearms....so how does one think of them, old or new?
Not in recent years. Not since being acquired by the Freedom Group in 2011, I believe.
In that list of upper echelon rifles, I am surprised there was no mention of Sako.
That list is 5 years old, maybe someone should start a thread with some new guns in it!
