  1. If the rifle is in original condition, i.e. not refinished, it could go for more than $2,000.  Look up winchestercollector.org for some info on the rifles, especially the top thread, "Tips on Buying an Old Winchester".   I have one in 32-40, refinished and the bore is fuzzy, but it shoots like a dream.  I still have one box of Imperial factory ammo, which really performed well.  A really nice round, very accurate.

  2. Received a notification from Midway that Federal Subsonic in stock.  The web site says out of stock, but I spoke to customer service rep ( 1-800 243 3220 ) and they found it.  3 box limit.   Product number TGM 123 7.5.  Price is $ 12.00 per box.  Not cheap.

  3. The following is a statement from the National Shooting Sports Foundation:

     

    “The decision to settle in the Soto v. Bushmaster case was not made by a member of the firearms industry. The settlement was reached between the plaintiffs and the various insurance carriers that held policies with Remington Outdoor Company (ROC), which effectively no longer exists.

    As part of bankruptcy court proceedings, the assets of ROC were sold at auction in September of 2020. Remington Outdoor Company, which owned the Bushmaster brand, effectively ceased to exist as a going concern. The lawsuit, however, continued against the estate of the Remington Outdoor Company, essentially ROCs insurers and their insurance policies in effect at the time.

    The settlement also does not alter the fundamental facts of the case. The plaintiffs never produced any evidence that Bushmaster advertising had any bearing or influence over Nancy Lanzas decision to legally purchase a Bushmaster rifle, nor on the decision of murderer Adam Lanza to steal that rifle, kill his mother in her sleep, and go on to commit the rest of his horrendous crimes. We renew our sincere sympathy for the victims of this unspeakable tragedy and all victims of violence committed through the misusing of any firearm. But the fact remains that modern sporting rifles are the most popular rifle in America with over 20 million sold to law abiding Americans and rifles, of any kind, are exceedingly rarely used in crime.

    The Connecticut Supreme Court wrote in its Soto v. Bushmaster (4-3) opinion, [T]the plaintiffs allege that the defendantswrongful advertising magnified the lethality of the Sandy Hook massacre by inspiring Lanza or causing him to select a more efficiently deadly weapon for his attack. Proving such a causal link at trial may prove to be a Herculean task.” NSSF believes the Court incorrectly allowed this one claim to go forward to discover. We remain confident ROC would have prevailed if this case had it proceeded to trial.

    Finally, this settlement orchestrated by insurance companies has no impact on the strength and efficacy of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which remains the law of the land. PLCAA will continue to block baseless lawsuits that attempt to blame lawful industry companies for the criminal acts of third parties.

    An interesting note by the way is that Wallace Beery is not the friendly kind of guy that is shown in several of his movies but apparently quite a jerk in real life.  But that said,  His version of Treasure Island is the best IMHO.

    Well, yeah.  He was an actor. :rolleyes:

    I look at it this way:

    A 1967 Chevelle with a 400 small block can go from 0-60 in seven seconds.

    A 1978 Chevy Chevette with warped heads can go from 0-60 in 200 seconds.

    One is going to push me back my seat as I feel the G-forces while I am not going to feel anything but shame in the other.

    The same as the difference between flying in an Air France Concorde vs a British Airways Concorde.

  6. There is still time to ship ammo.  Contact the folks out there at the club and they can give you a shipping address.  It will be cheaper than trying to buy at the match, assuming anyone has anything to sell.  I have shipped to AZ for the matches many times.  Usually takes about a week.
