Wow, with the scope and the ammo, I thought it would be worth a bit more than $1200. The scope may not be up to snuff compared to today's scopes, but I'd think any Weatherby scope would be collectable.

I think it's worth every bit of that, as fine as your description is of condition. If it were me, I'd inspect the bore, offer $1350-$1400 on the spot (providing the bore is in good shape) and pay the $1500 if they won't go down. I like 24" barrels too. Check the stock carefully around and behind the receiver for hairline cracks (not that MKV's have a problem, but any used rifle needs that inspection).

Or have it breaking off and falling in the ocean. Arizona could sell beachfront property.

Used to catch a lot of those on worms as a boy and we called them bluegills. They are real easy and fast to gut and cook up really good.

Good one. Some of the loser tide pod kids might actually be stupid enough, nothing surprises me anymore. Maybe buttwipe David Hogg will give it a try.

Sure thing, Roger. It would make one helluva truck or bedside gun. Even if you missed, thugs would still piss their pants.

That's too funny. The headband with flowers in it is a nice comical touch. The girl is kind of hot too.

My regular shooting buddy got one of these in 12 gauge back in February. I shot it a few times when he got it and it was kind of a handful with regular 00 buck loads, but very manageable and damn fun to shoot with law enforcement low-recoil 00 buck. If I was to buy one, I'd get the 12 gauge over the 20. What's interesting is how accurately you can hit with it, not even looking down the barrel (upper stomach height shooting position). It's a formidable and impressive weapon. If my safe wasn't completely maxed out, I think I'd buy one (I know, I know - buy another safe LOL).

I'd love to get some of that rain over here. We've entered drought conditions here also. SE Texas is usually feast of famine. We went from 59 inches of rain in a couple days (Harvey) and historic flooding, to praying for even a few drops now. My property has cracks in the ground 3/4 of an inch wide.

Weatherby should do video webcasts or something they close the doors in Kommieforkya and open them in Wyoming (back in America).

Just let the POS turn 18 in jail, then try him and juice him up for a permanent nap.

This one's in my neck of the woods, in Santa Fe, Texas. At least 8 dead. I don't know what's happening with these nutjob kids (and some adults, sometimes) and this crazy nonsense. These things are all copycat crimes now - their 15 minutes of notorious fame. It goes without saying there will be more ramping up on the push for gun control. I have not heard any reports on weapon type yet. If you need any 30 round magazines, get 'em while you still can.

Let us know how she does.

Nice looking rig. Which Vortex is on there?

Times have surely changed, and mostly not for the better. I remember the three channel TV world in the 1960's. As a boy and young teen, I used to walk down the road carrying a rifle or shotgun to or from wherever I was hunting squirrels, rabbits, quail, etc. People waved and that was the most reaction there ever was. Nowadays, a SWAT team would show up and tell me to drop the weapon. Sad. I think part of the downturn in hunting (besides the PC police, such as PETA) is that it's become very expensive for non-landowners. People want a small fortune to hunt their land, as opposed to free when I was young. It's becoming a rich man's sport instead of every man's sport. Public land is so over-hunted that many don't bother anymore. There's your drop in license revenue.
