OK, so I have time on my hands this weekend… ha ha. This is a display I made almost 2 years ago at the Reno, NV. Winchester show. It was a lot of fun to finally be able to show off some boxes with the rifles. It was called “Winchster, Not Just a Rifle.” I wanted to do more than just lay a few guns out.
All the boxes on the rack are WRACO 44-40, every one different. In the glass case is a full WRACO Stetson's Henry box and some various individual Henry rounds, including a scarce early WRACO SHOT Henry round. You can even see the x-ray I had taken of that round. A few scarce sights, screwdriver, whistle, & bore sights help decorate the case. On top you see my WRACO bat and glove. Hint: Tony still need a genuine Baseball. On the left, one of George Madis' books, on the right, some WRACO roller skates. WHY the real 9'6" Gator skin? Because I neede to show off a couple rifles also to complete the display. The 66 rifle is a oct barrel 2nd model with a Henry barrel address and 16,xxx fairly low serial number, to go with the Henry stuff in the case. The other is a brown 94 carbine in 44 (duh). Why show off a brown gun? Ta Da! Because YES, I shot the gator with it in Baldwin, Louisiana a few years ago. Yes, you can get special permits to hunt gators, and I did it with a Winchester. Lastly, are the pics of The Duke and of Ronald Reagan. Why you ask? FOR FUN! Remember guys, that's why we do this! The Duke, we all know carried a 92 carbine. Ronnie, according to the caption on the picture, was reported to keep a loaded Winchester behind the door in the oval office in case "Gorby" got "froggy" after the "tear down this wall" speech! OK, so that may not be 100% true. But, I did put it in the caption! Anyway, too much time off work drves me nuts. I hope everyone enjoys!
