What condition is it in and how much did you pay for it?

Wrong forum btw...

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

32 special Winchester

I paid 200.00 for it and the old fella I bought it off said he shot a box and a half of shells through it.The gun is flawless except for some wear just at the back of the front piece of stock on the steel part where his hand wore through the blueing.No rust or scratches .Thanks for the reply for the year.

If it is in good condition and you paid $200 for it, you stole it.

Great gun, practically new for half price, you done good. Mine has a ton of experience on the range and in the woods and its one of my go to guns, especially in heavy woods or for outside walking after a bump-a-thump at dark thirty. I have a lot of faith in the old caliber and the gun has only had very minor problems related to wear and tear. Clean it and shoot it and enjoy the heck out of it.

Here is my 1952 Winchester 94 in 32WS. Great rifle, great cartridge.
