Congrats on your Christmas present!
Not only did you get the rifle you dreamed of . . .. you learned a vlauable lesson! Let your wife negotiate for you from now on!
Sounds like a very special lady! Enjoy your Krag!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63
