Re: WTS 300 RUM rifle

Sorry about the slow response. My daughter got married this past weekend. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

If rifle doesn't sell, then I will probably continue to keep & shoot her. If rifle sells, but buyer doesn't want the bullets, I'll send you an email. Thanks for the interest.
