    I have been eyeing several Sako rifles, for a while, some at a couple of Texas firearms emporiums’ sites, and, of course, looking at Sako’s website. I appreciate that some models are available with left-hand actions, which is important if I am going to use a scope, and also that some have really nice, highly-visible iron sights, which are “ambi-eyed” for me. (My left-eye dominance is not a factor, if the rear sight is an open notch, and well out there, on the barrel.)

    I need another bolt gun like I need a hole in my head. But now I'm really wanting a Model 85 Arctos in 9.3x62mm. Gorgeous rifles, walnut and blued steel hasn't appealed to me at all... until now.

    A buddy of mine is a brown bear guide and has carried a Sako 75 synthetic stainless in .375 H&H with the barrel lopped down to 20" I'm first on his list if he ever decides to sell it. I doubt he will.

    My experience with Sako is limited to mostly the Quad and P94S rimfires, but every Sako rifle I have fired has been well worth the asking price. A Bavarian carbine in .243 is on my list of "someday" firearms.

    Yeah yeah. How many times you going to live?

    You know, I remember that FN FNC at a gun show 25 years ago. Guy wanted $1500 for it but I passed. Never saw it again (and I was a regular gun show nut in those days).

    I kick myself EVERY TIME I think about it.

    Something to think about.

    A good friend passed after a long bout with cancer last year. The day of his funeral UPS delivered a box of parts from Brownell’s. I’m waiting on his wife to hold a seance so she can get in the last word.

    This year I’ve picked up a 114 year old Type B Mauser in 8x57 and a CZ SxS 12ga both of which I’ve wanted for decades.

    That is about the manliest thing I have seen since the old Gerber knife commercial.

    A PSA worth watching--probably now politically incorrect

    I get students to send me images/videos at the end of my propaganda module with a description of how it "spoke to them". This is one a student sent a link to that she described as "convincing me that these actions were correct and that I should do to help others and myself, so I can have that clear conscience."

    I would like to point out that while BLM probably wouldn't approve, the student who sent this link was a black female....
