MY HERO



MY HERO. BAD DOG THREATENS FAMILY... DAD PROTECTS FAMILY. DAD KILLS BAD DOG. PROBLEM... PROBLEM SOLVED.

THE PHOTO IS FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES... "TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD"... THE ACTOR... GREGORY PECK a/k/a "Atticus Finch"

Thanks to all for the info on the rifle. Amazing what you guys and lady can tell from just looking at a gun.

Richard,
The rifle is a Krag-Jorgensen model 1892, 96 or 98 that has been sporterized by cutting back the front stock. It's harder to pin down the exact variant with out very close examination, as the easiest visible changes between the models were the woodwork and placement of the cleaning rod.
Caliber is .30-40 Krag.

I love, love your show.
Did you have a talk show in Chicago? Your name sounds so familiar. We lived there for 19 years before moving here 11 years ago.
And please don't tone down the passion.
