    Your gonna need a stack of them to make a mountain look like a penny. It’s truly everything I could dream of in a gun, and it will sell for at least 200 times what I could conceivably pay for it. If I win the lottery between now and then though....

    200 isn’t bad, oh hold it, that’s a comma.

    Lets see, at a penny saved per day that is 200,000 X 100 = 20,000,000 pennies (or days) needed until I'm ready to open the bidding.
    20,000,000 / 365 = 54,794.52 years.
    DANG!:fire:
    I knew I should have started saving sooner.
    At 71 now, I'll be 54,865.52 years old when I start the bidding.
    If I win, I'll probably be too feeble to pick it up.
    Even if I can pick it up, my eyesight will have deteriorated so much that I won't be able to hit the broadside of a barn.
    You know, its that .52 years that always catches up with you.
    I guess I'll pass and let you young whipper snappers have a go at it.

    What's that you say? The opening bid is $200,000...'tis but a mere trifling my good man! I am certain I have that much in loose change just sitting around the house!

    Arthur Hunnicutt used one! You might know him asBull Harris.

    My mistake, Bull used a Root Sidehammer Rifle.

    Is that one of those Henry x things I've been hearing about? :uhoh:

    Beautiful, hopefully it will sell to a collection on display - not to some colt hoarders safe in a bunker not to re-emerge for another 180 years.
