Unbelievable - The 30-378 came back!!!!!!!!!!

My buddy that lost the gun came across an add in the paper. He only had $200 on him and they were happy with that. So I'm going over to give them a total of $500 plus the cost of their add.

I'm just dumb founded. It was just found a couple of days ago. It had bounced out in the sage brush next to the road and if you weren't riding a horse you never would have seen the big black case. Another unbelievable thing is the case only had some small dings and this has been a dry fall without any moister in the last 9 days.

    That is awsome dude! That is just like this bow season I was walking back after dark and stopped to get a bottle of water out of my backpack. I took off my rangefinder and binos and then walked off without them. Went back 3 days later and THERE THEY WERE! Now this is a very heavily traveled trail so I know people walked by it and left them there thinking that the person who lost them would come back to get em!

    Yes indeed these cases are answered prayers.

    After nine days and not a word, I had already decided that I was never going to have another 30-378. They are just too expensive. I even told some friends that I was getting rid of all my 500-600 rounds of 30 cal bullets and all the 100 cases... I would off it all for next to nothing.

    Have faith in your fellow mankind!

    budlight,
    I had the feeling you were going to be using them... I guess that's the reason I did not say anything about them bullets when I spoke to you over the phone! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
    I agree with sewwhat89!!!!! I praise God!!!
