Vall - I think that's because you were meant to own those two rifles smile

I do believe there is something to that line of thinking. There are quite a few guns that I've purchased that just should have sold quickly to anyone interested, and yet there they were when I found them.
That 1881 Flues rifle was stuffed in a barrel of "junker guns" and as I walked by it I saw the Farrow buttplate sticking up, and the gorgeous wood. I felt weak in the knees when I pulled it out and saw an 1881 Marlin attached to it! I wont even mention the price tag the store had on it.
And I have another Schoyen Ballard (my first one purchased!) that I watched the gun store buy from a young man who said his grandfather left it to him, and he had no interest in it. I stood there speechless when the store owner told him he'd give him about 10% of it's true value! I wanted to jump in, but I bought a lot from the store, and felt I'd be out of place doing so. But it turned out the store owner wasn't cheating the youngster; but actually didn't know what it was. I asked to look at it, and he told me I could own it for 50% more than he paid. I quickly paid him and snatched it and ran out the door with it!
