What rifle carries more nastolgia than a model 94/30-30? I have one that is nothing special. It's a mid 70's version, still clean as a pin but yet it's just one of several million made.
As I was wiping down the guns in my keeper stuff cabinet I was recalling hunts and kills made with each as it was there turn for a little love. I got to this 30-30 and came up pretty much empty. The only thing I ever killed with it was a chicken hawk that was slaughtering my pen raised quail. There are no memories afield with it. It was taken to Mo. a few times as a back up gun during deer season and I can only remember carrying it one uneventful day.
I wouldn't part with this old 30-30 for love nor money. I think about next January I'll take it to southern Iowa for late doe only season and let it make a memory or two...it desreves the chance.
Anybody got a good kill story for their 30-30?
