Pretty Guns Are Meant to be Used

Gil just got a fine Manufrance 16 bore of high grade, and snipe season is still on...
I envy him the meals he is still collecting. We didn't have much of a season here, and it is over. We need rain!

I have a pre-Vixen Sako L46. Every gun-owner around here cringes when they see me using it. They think I should sell it to the highest bidder.

However, the Finns don't understand why. It's a classic grouse-rifle everyone covets, and it's not a collector's item. Yes, they are becoming rare, but it's a greater insult to the rifle's legacy not to use it for the purpose it was built for: that is using it in grouse-hunting.
