dad had a 30-40 krag carbine which i guess the mounties used - i liked that gun - pop open the shelf and pour in a handful of shells, snap it shut and blaze away - great for long shots across meadows and such. every fall when he'd see a formation of geese fly over he'd say go get the krag and 1 shell. he'd flip up the leaf sight and try to estimate lead - well of course he never came close - then one year one came spiraling down right in the yard! i don't know who was more surprised - him or the goose! we had a thanksgiving goose. :)
