Operating on the third premise, I'm offering a special Caturday post just for "ol One-Star," the giver of bad reviews.
Everybody's entitled to their opinion and no book can please eveyone but there is such a thing as manners. So, One Star, go back to your parents' basement and don't come back out until you can bring some with you.
For the rest of us, here's a more conventional Caturday post:
More conventional for a Caturday post from a dog person.
Credits: The first two pictures are from Gary Groshel's "Remembering the 99," a coffee table book of old photos that include 1895, 1899 and Model 99 Savage rifles. The actual photos are much better than my crappy scans. The book doesn't give you anything technical. Its just full of pictures of how things were when these rifles were new. If you are into Savage 99s, or aren't scared to try to be, its kind of a must have.
The next two are from Sporting Classics Magazine.
The rest of them came from various places on the intarwebz.
