Another American Icon dead.

Talk about an end of an era. Winchester has gone Out with a Bang.

The worst part about the whole thing is that I can just see anti-gun fanatics dancing in the streets at the news of this. To me I feel sad. It makes me want to run out to the local gun shops and buy one right away, if I could afford it, just to make sure I could have one.

I love the Winchester model 94 .30-30 lever action. Graumagus of Frizzen Sparks (Deceased) had one that he let me fire. It was a great rifle, easy to shoot and damn accurate. For those of you that aren’t sure what that is, think the stereotypical cowboy rifle.

Thanks to Og of Neanderpundit for the news.

Yeah... 'tis a sad day indeed. Anti-gunners be damned.

Thank God I got a '94 last fall!

Damn, what a shame... I really wanted a Model 70 Classic in 6.5x55mm. Prices will go through the roof now.
