Hello from North Texas!

Post by TexasRazorback »

Hello, all!
I found this site while rooting around for info on what I believe was my grandfather's Model 8 .35 caliber. I remember shooting it a few times with my Dad back in the late 70's and I just took it out and fired a few rounds last month.
I'm looking forward to learning from the collective knowledge here and possibly meeting up with some of the DFW area members as well.

I will try to get some photos up before long.

Thanks....

Harrison

Welcome aboard Harrison! Good to have another Texan on board to keep 81police happy. We would like to see some pictures of your rifle.

Be sure to check the thread for the Great 8 Event. I would love to have you come to the event and join some fellow forum members for an outing of shooting the 8 & 81 rifles. We will be viewing my collection as well as some of the other that guys will be bringing.

Regards,

Welcome Harrison. So cool to have your Granddad's rifle! Those old guns are still taking deer, bear, and other game just as they did in the early 1900's. They're also just plain fun to shoot.
