I have a friend that just took the hunter safety class so she could hunt with a friend of hers. Well, this girl is the last person I'd expect to take the course, but I'm glad she opened up a little and took it. Her dad is a former Navy guy and is convinced he's the end-all source for firearm information, and a whiz-bang marksman to boot. Whatever. The guy likes to blow smoke. This girl is, of course, sure her father is everything he says he is. When a couple of my firearms-savvy friends tried to help her decide on a good rifle, she waved them off and mentioned that her dad would probably just "get her something" and teach her how to use it. ..... now for the painful part Getting prepared for her marksmanship training, he pulled out one of the several firearms collecting dust in some closet in their house. It was a Winchester .22LR single shot that was about 100 years old. Whether it was a bolt or break-open or what, I don't know (wasn't there). Apparently, the thing is all rusted out. I just about freakin died when I heard that. Any idea how much something like that would be worth? I know there would be a lot of collector value there, not necessarily from a monetary standpoint, but still a lot of value. Hopefully my friend gets some wits about her and starts listening to everybody that she should NOT fire the thing in its current condition, no matter what her dad says.
