Yeah, don't think I haven't thought about it. Not a fan of bull pup design but this is the Carbine that spawned the development of the pistol. Maybe Henry will pick it up in their lever lineup like they are doing with all the other odd calibers.
You'll recognize it when you see it. Our last son graduated from college yesterday and, as a result, he moves from part time to full time with the state of Ga (auditing and accounting) starting tomorrow. Now all 3 off the payroll, house and truck paid off! It's ME time now - something I haven't had much of since 1985 when our first was born and I was just starting my last year of Med school.NICE!!!! You've become old enough to stop justifing why you got this or that! I can't wait till I'm there too!
