Well, at least someone gets a new gun out of this. Congratulations long rider and please post a "first fondle" as well as a range report.

Mrs. Grymster is all jacked up about retirement. Dragging me around to look at properties and asking how much money we have and such. I'm going along with it and gradually easing her into the idea that there's lots of guns I'll need as "retirement requirements". I think a 58 Remmie in .36 is gonna be one of them.

Hey pard, you know that some times you have to
take a bow now and again, when you want something
or its ( what you want another gun for ) then you have
to explain the reson why you want one, i allways say
i dont want to wear out all my guns at once, they need
a break, it seems to work.
I will hit the range this weekend thats if the wife lets me

That's great & I'm sure that you'll love how handy it feels in your hand..

As far as a bow, I have 3 that are mine "Recurve, Hunter, Competition" then my wife has one & my lil ones have one each...

I allways try to get Moma involved so that she doesn't complain too much about my collection, so far it has worked...

Stainless, steel, blue

Besides for appearance, what are the differences between stainless steel, steel, and blued?

What I want is something durable, and something that won't easily rust if I don't oil it for months or longer. I prefer the appearance of the dull steel, not anything shiny.

Does the standard steel rust easier than the stainless?

Thanks,

Jake
