    My newest son-in-law (13 months) is getting the final installment of my daughters dowry. It's also helping me to narrow down the calibers of ammo I have to stock. The first installment was a Springfield M1A, K31 Swiss, Mk1 No4 Enfield, Ithaca Model 37 12ga, Sig 226 .40S&W/.357Sig, Polish Gward .38 Spcl, Taurus .22 revolver, CZ-75B and Series 70 Gold Cup National Match .45 ACP.


    This installment he gets an Uberti .44 cap & ball revolver, T53 Chinese Mosin Nagant (refinished and reblued) and an 1899-built .30-40 Krag-Jorgensen and a Norwegian Krag in 6.5mm Swedish made in 1913. He is a professor in Mississippi and has some hunting friends at the university who have invited him out for next deer season. This is my investment in getting some venison sausage.

    I only have daughters so it's nice to have really decent son-in-laws who treat them right and are also gun enthusiasts.

    I wish I was marrying your daughter...

    My wife and kids would object of course...but the dowry!! I could only dream of such a treasure when I got married.

    Yeah...I got a handshake and a bill. Oh well.

    Nice Krags...I see them from time to time and the prices have gone up and up.
