    Talking Hawken .54 Caliber Cap Lock: Should I feel GUILTY?

    I just acquired a Thompson Center Arms (T/C) Hawken .54 Cap Lock rifle.......

    I bought it from a Divorcee who was selling it for her estranged husband.....for $50. No kidding. She had "competent advisors". Go figure.

    Complete with all of the accessories, a Deer Skin rifle rug, and a Deer Skin Accessory bag.

    She really wanted to get rid of it badly......so I helped her.........

    Good buy.
    I'd buy it for 50 bucks. They are great rifles.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Sounds like she's really doing him a favor! I'll bet she has all of his stuff sold before he can even get back into the house to get it. When Mom's not happy, nobody's happy!

    I asked if he had any other guns, just to make sure I could help her out to the fullest extent possible.

    I'm still excited, and will begin a Black Powder adventure after life settles down a wee bit.

    I'm sure that her estranged husband will be grateful for the sale.

    This is a good reason for the courts to freeze all community assets,until there is a settlement agreement.If My X-wife had any access to the collection I now own,and she was selling stuff for 10% of replacement value,I wouldn't be very happy,but I would let my attorney do the talkin,I might say sumpin in the heat of the moment and lose my CHL over a terroristic threat charge,or she call 911 and report I threatened her with a gun,Cops show up and I got my gun and guess who is goin fer a RIDE

    Can't imagine why. A transaction requires a buyer and a seller without coercion. She was comfortable with the price she set, in spite whatever I or others might think of the reasonableness of that price. You were comfortable with her having set that price, so you offered to pay it. She was amenable. Sound like a good day for both parties.

    Thompson Center is probably the best factory made Hawken on the market.
    Those I have shot were all HR Keller originals, hand made and museum grade. Great shooters, deadly accurate.
    Feel guilty?
