I know the price went up because of them going out of buisness.While i dont have any experience with them,speaking for myself.i cant see spending all kinds of money on a collectors item and themn taking it into the woods.I treat my guns like another tool in my toolbox and dont want to have to worry about them getting scratched,dinged up etc.....But thats me.
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
