  1. I have eaten it up to a year in the freezer.
  2. I did read not to even think about messing with it if you have a bad trigger. Neil Jones is one of two who will work on the BLR apparently, he is in PA. The other guy is in CO I believe. I actually emailed Neil Jones before purchasing it. There is no way I'm even thinking about changing it after getting it in my hands. I was pleasantly surprised to find the trigger on this particular rifle to be absolutely fine, I would even say it is very good. Maybe there were some manufacturing years that had issues, I don't know. Maybe I've just been lucky with triggers over the years, I've only ever had issues with one early 2000's Model 70 and a 700 that were both horrible.
  3. How do you like it? I really wanted the ‘06, but couldn’t find one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. At 6 lbs 8 oz, it feels pretty light in the hand and is less "clunky" than other levers I have had. We'll see though, I never thought I would find a rifle I enjoyed more than my X-Bolts, but I think this is going to become my favorite if it prints well.
  5. Same deal. I'm curious if you guys are on Macs / iPhones. I've bee having a lot of popup and redirect issues with Safari lately.
  6. I am sure I will put a scope on it before next November, but let’s face it, most of the fun with lever guns is shooting with open sights. We had a Henry 30-30 a while back that would pop clays at 100 yards all day long. Man was that a blast. I think with a .308 I’m going to want to be able to reach out a little further though and my eyes aren’t so great anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Yes Evans. Weather permitting, I just heard 4-8” of snow is coming???!! I was really getting used to this nice weather in WNY. Are you a member? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It was a tough few seconds of deep thought for sure! Thankfully I have one terrific wife, she said “you have a real problem” when I told her, then she said “damn that’s nice!” When I opened the box! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Following all of the excitement and travel of the holidays, I began to reflect on this past deer season. I wondered why in the world, with all of the scrapes and rubs, trail cam pics and early season sightings, did I not connect with a mature buck during the regular season. After many seconds of pondering, I realized... Clearly I need a new gun! I've been thinking about a new lever gun for a while, and I’m a dedicated Browning fan, so I decided on a BLR lightweight pistol grip in .308. It was not easy to find, but a special thanks to H&H in Lackawanna, Heather somehow tracked down one of the last 2019 .308s out there. I picked it up over the weekend and can’t wait to take it to the club on Saturday and break it in. I’m already getting excited for next year!

  12. Maybe, but I doubt it. I have a couple of Sigs, they are readily available. My guess is that Colt will certainly do the same with this as they did with the KC Target, very limited release and no one was able to order me one. I ended up making the purchase at GunBroker and believe I paid the MSRP. Some auctions were up to 50% higher than the MSRP at times. On Tuesday I ordered a Browning BLR from H&H in Lackawanna, I'm picking it up on Monday and will certainly inquire about ordering the Python, but I already know what she will tell me.
  13. For those interested in Erie County timelines and restrictions this is a good thread to filter though.
  14. Oh that sucks! There was literally no one there when I went. The deputy was a jerk, didn't say a word to me, input the info the clerk gave him, pointed and waved for me to stand up to get my photo taken and printed the card. I said thanks and Merry Christmas to him and he didn't even look at me.
