I hate "I've lost my best friend" stories. So sad.

Its nice that you have a picture of all of them. I don't even have that. Just memories that get hazier by the day.

No need to post a fake story that you lost them. No one is coming for your guns.

beautiful collection, something about leverguns that speaks to me. Here’s my 1894 in .44 mag I inherited from my dad, it’s one of my most dear possessions along with the old .3030 brush slut, and also my fat attack cat

Whaddaya mean "fake" story? You weren't there. You didn't witness the carnage....never mind; it's too difficult to talk about. Too soon.

This is the Savoy Leather sling I have ordered for the Browning BAR. Handmade in Oklahoma. Quite a bit of lead time since they make each one as they are ordered.

I think it will look nice against the walnut stock.

Thanks. Nice lever guns. Even cooler when they have a special meaning.

Here is one of our attack cats trying to make friends with the bears on the Animal Planet this evening. I'll probably need a new TV after he gets done trying to pet them.
