Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

Two children went to Appleton for Black Friday.

Put the first coat of boiled linseed oil on the Rem 742 stock. Looks a lot better than it did before. Most of the lacquer finish had peeled off the butt stock.

'Tis 32 and sunny. High of 45 and sunny.

Been retire almost 4 years, 3 years this mess started.  Glad I did it at 62, being able to update to SSD means the money is the same and retiring likely saved my life.

If you look at police guns sold second hand, they are nowhere near the state of the gun shown above.

I think with anything, each gun could show different levels of wear depending on the cowboy who had it and how they treated it.
I have my father's Glock 22 Gen 2 that rode on my dad's hip for many years. It has much honest wear and looks no where hear "new". He really takes care of his guns also. I don't think a Glock with a modern finish would wear the same as one of the old Colt's with its finish and metal of the day.

Again though, it all depens on the person carrying the gun and the situation. I have a few semi-modern guns that seen many years making hunts and being carried on the farm that def. show their age but overall was taken care of. They clearly don't look new but don't look abused eithe.

I have a cousin and also my father in law who are both notorious for not taking care of their guns. They get a gun and within 5 years that gun looks like it was dragged behind a stage coach through the rocks and dust of any given desert. They get thrown on 4 wheelers and side by sides, put in boats, taken out in the rain and snow, not cleaned as they should be, beat and banged on tree limbs and bushes etc. Neither collect guns. They buy guns to use for whatever task and they attache no sentimental value to them. I always cringe at how neglected their guns are. But....... when they are finished with them someone will look at the guns and say...... "if this gun could talk".

30 shopping days till Christmas...anyone else think this year has rocketed by  ???

The amazing thing for me it's been just short of 3 years  :o since Covid was the cause for me to retire.
Plan was for me to retire in March of '23'. @ 75.
Course, I'm quite content to be out of that pressure pot !
and working part time as a curator at the Military Museum.  :)

The job is quite rewarding, fun and no pressure.

For what it's worth, my Lee mold puts a crimp groove in the bullet, and I seat the bullets to that crimp groove and then use the LEE factory crimp die.
