I think they were selling for a little over $1000. What will the Feds pay? My guess will be no cash involved, a person would be lucky to get a $250 credit on their tax return.

A google search still shows some cached pages from Canadian gun stores selling the stainless model for anywhere from $1250-$1320 in the past year.

The target model sold for more.

I personally hope the feds don't get to pay for even one

I had a horrible accident last fall.. I was delivering my 10 semi auto rifles and 6 pistols to a friend on the other side of lesser slave Lake. There was a huge wave and we capsized. Luckily I was wearing my life vest, but I lost my whole collection of semi auto rifles and pistols.....

Hate those rogue waves, they just come out of nowhere. Had a very similar incident on Lake Newell last summer

I think we all need to look at some vessel maintenance.

I was running my jet up stream will all of my semis aboard in sealed pelican style cases and I forgot the plug. When i noticed the cases had already floated out of the boat and were lost. I was able to bring the boat on plane to drain the water but my beloved rifles were gone. It's a shame.

That said, they don't have enough money to purchase my guns.

I had a Mini-14 for almost thirty years. In all that time, never even once did it cause me to want to perform a mass shooting or anything like that.
Obviously it was faulty, so I got rid of it......

I pray you can reverse the liberal agenda being pushed upon you all!
When it comes time to defend yourself,they know a bolt action is not gonna ever be enough.

mini 14 in the states prior to our Liberal Takeover was around 700.00

Is there a support group out there for all of us that lost our rifles during a boating accident. I’m still having nightmares. I reach out to Mike from Canmore once in a while to have a good talk about pvc piping.
