Where are you now? I'm about 1/4 mile from there



 
I'm about a quarter miles from the Gulf Of Mexico. {#Lol}

There will be a p.m. coming your way later. It's rained the last two days and finally drying up enough out there to do all the yard clean up I need to do before rolling my ugly old chevy out the drive way.

This is my model 1885 Winchester. It was made in 1890. It was obviously a custom ordered piece in it's day. It has all the add on bells and whistles offered in the catalogue from it's day plus you may notice the small tab on the bottom of the butt stock where there is a four section cleaning rod stored inside the butt. I haven't found another model 1885 with this feature in over three years of researching this gun. My late step father claimed it was appraised at 12 thousand dollars when he inherited it back in the late 1980's. Local gun dealers agree with me that the value has increased since then and we guess it to be around 15 thousand now. Could go way over that in the right auction.

Now the part where you start saying I am dreaming.

There are four missing Teddy Roosevelt guns that I have read about but know nothing about what caliber, models or the circumstances which Teddy's guns came to be missing. As I have said before this gun was obviously a custom order purchased by someone of stature back in 1890. To have a feature such as the cleaning rod kit added would indicate to me that someone had an in with the gunsmiths at Winchester. This was not some working mans gun.

I am not claiming that I do have Teddy's gun just yet but am not wanting to sell this one before I am sure I don't either.

If anyone has any information or suggestions where I can find info about this gun please let me know.

I am about to make the trip to Cody Wyoming to the Buffalo Bill museum where they have the most complete records of pre 1920 Winchesters that I know of.

Maybe when they start mowing the lawn themselves.

From my trap range days, there is a fixed number of times you can reload shotgun shells before the plastic fatigues and fails. But there are a bunch of satrurday morning shooters who would love them.  

I appreciate your efforts though - I don't long for the good ole days where everybody carried a side arm and littering was tolerated < /snark >.

Just a random thought.  As a kid it was no big deal to go stumbling through fields and what not and find spent shotgun shells.

Now they are as rare as hen's teeth.  Too precious to leave behind.  Things can have a way of taking care of themselves. 

 
A place to shoot birds is too precious to litter up. I can go out in the badlands and find piles of shells, but not so much anywhere near a farm/field because if it's not posted no hunting, it soon will be if it gets abused.
