Sue said we needed new filed glasses. So went to Alpine today and got a nice pair of Nikon, then I called her about them. When I picked her up for lunch she said she told her co-worker that there had to be a gun involved. Well after looking at glasses I glazed at the rifles then the auto pistol then the revolvers and there was a Freedom Arms .17HMR with what I thought was a silly price much lower then what you can order one for. Well the rest of the story goes a guy won this gun along with 2 others at the local NRA bandquite a few years ago, he put them in his basement and forgot about them . When cleaning this fall he found them and took them to the shop to be sold. The serial number on this revolver is 030, and I got a little more discount on it around a $1000 less then a new one...... Sue worked at Freedom arm two different times and at Casull Arm for awhile, she know what their gun are worth and wasn't upset at all

What scares me about the 17 HMR:

The 5 mm Remington Rimfire Magnum is an obsolete bottlenecked rimfire cartridge introduced by Remington Arms Company in 1970. Remington chambered it in a pair of bolt-action rifles, the Model 591 and Model 592, but the round never became very popular, and the rifles were discontinued in 1974. The ammo discontinued in 1982.[2] About 52,000 rifles were sold during its brief production run.[

They are neat little guns to keep in the truck.

good point Mike, up here ammo run around 15 to 17$ a box of fifty, a little pricey for general plinking. but the terminal performance on ground squirrels is quite spectacular

Ranchers.net is on the top of my "favorites" list on my home 'puter, Gunblast.com is second. A few months back I won $500 worth of ammo when I re-upped my membership. :D
