What's this idea of only owning 1 lever action? You need at least 2. Most likely 3.

Here's my 1965 Winchester 94 Dirty Birdie 30-30 that I picked up used for $125 a couple years ago. The wood and metal have some character to them.

I also have a Rossi 92 in 357 / 38spl that is in my top 3 most fun to shoot guns. Using semi-wadcutter 158gr mouse fart 38spl loads, it's suppressor quiet, with no paperwork required.

Lastly, I'm in the market for a 45-70. Haven't found the right one yet.

This by once cry once had to be though up by someone that could afford to buy what they wanted from the start! Lot of us are not that well off and we end up buying what we can afford. All the inecpensive gun's on the market today are not junk! they are not as well finished s some of us might but with proper care they will shoot with and lst as long as really expensive gun. I talking rifles here. aDon't know much about handgun's
