I really like the idea of these stories and memories being saved here on BF. That Mauser looks like quite a load to haul around the mountains! Folks, these tales are fantastic and I can't thank you enough for posting! I realized in my OP that I didn't really set a time limit. I figure, as long as we are getting fresh stories, I will keep the GAW going. But on the other hand, waiting is no fun either, so we'll se how it goes. I have my eye on letting it run at least a week tho, so maybe a drawing next weekend.
