ryo have make the proper change. please accept ryo and ryu kun's humble apologies. gomen honto gomen nasai. in future ryo and little brother will be more careful. we not like to make silly mistake like this. arigato again. you are such very good teacher that ryo would just be lost here without you.
Your friends always,
it is a very nice rifle,i am a little concerned about the price of ammo.I checked into the 45-70 for the Marlin samD posted and that is expensive ammo.59-79 dollars for 20 rounds.Kind of hard to make it a plinker with ammo that expensive...
we will order it by the case at the gun shop where the son of pops old friend, now own the shop. he will give us very good price, something like wholesale cost to him and 1 percent. he very nice man to our family. ryo and little brother grew up calling this man uncle bill even though he not really our uncle. we buy most of our guns and ammo at his shop. he can get just about anything legal available on the market and he is such good friend. even so, the rifle itself is very reasonably price. but this is not the rifle ryo want to buy as gift for little brother. that is why had little brother help put this one up so to put him off the track neh ;-) ryu kun know that ryo is planning on buying him new rifle and he have make a few hint here and there to let ryo have idea what to get. can you meet ryo on messenger live for few minute dozo ka would like to discuss something about this with you. not want little brother to get any real idea yet neh.
it very interesting rifle neh. would honto like to know what you think.
