Re: I hate when a good deal happens on a firearm I don't need

I have no problem passing up a "good deal" on some gun I don't need or want. But it's tough to pass up a good deal on a gun I love, whether I "need" it or not.

Re: Any one recall the story as to why Winchester never offered a 35 caliber round based on 30 WCF

My guess would be because the .35 Remington used the same rim diameter, and worked just fine in lever guns. No reason to have a rimmed cartridge the same as a rebated rim sized .35 cartridge. The question I always had was why didn't Winchester produce any Model 94's in .35 Rem.? I agree. I presume ...
