unless you are just interested in hunting with old military rifles........

I am somewhat. My roots go back to Vera Cruz some 90 years ago when this rifle I have would be 12 years old. The Mexican colors painted on the sides of the stock, Mexican disc emblem and Villa stamped into the stocked is authenticity and I can admire that. It appears to have been a real workhorse and no doubt helped populate cemetaries. It's time to have it do something usefull in a different manner...feed the family in a semi retired way. For that, I can appreciate it more as it will have a 2nd history, with me. That 102 year old actually means more to me than the new ones I have. Can't explain that but I guess it's the sum of the total.
