    A thirty-one year old virgin for my birthday

    Browning Model 92
    357 mag
    manufactured 1982

    This one has not had a round on the feed ramp since it left the factory. Looks like it just came out of the box. Protective tube still on the trigger.

    When I saw it at the LGS, where I work part time, I had to have it. Perfect companion to a pair of GP100s.

    OK, I don't get jealous by posts on here very often but MAN THAT IS SWEET!

    I'm deeply jealous of your find. Good job!

    Just focused on the target. Had it balanced on my lap.

    Perfect place for a 31YOV.

    Beautiful little rifle, there. I'd have had a hard time saying "no" as well.

    So, the burning question we all have is: are ya gonna shoot 'er, or put 'er on a pedestal?

    Rest assured I'll shoot 'er, but I'll still respect 'er. If you aren't going to shoot it, what's the point of having it?

    Nice classy rifle! It could also serve as a home defense carbine if you don't already have one.
