    Ruger 77/22 Hornet - Please don't buy as the wife is making me post this!

    Ruger 77/22 Hornet - As the title says....Please don't buy as the wife is making me post this!!

    I accidentally bought 2 more rifles on TradeMe over the weekend and now the wife thinks we need food and stuff! Pfft! Plus the safe is getting tight.

    Anyways if one of you cruel bastards does want this I'm asking for $1399 total

    Package will include,

    1. Rifle in mint condition, one small, very small dent/impression under foregrip from the sling buckle
    2. 5+ boxes or hornady 22 hornet ammo
    3. 2 x 6 round rotary factory magazines
    4. Factory scope rings

    The rifle is as new and the only work I have done is float the barrel a little as it was sitting super tight into the stock from factory, and I imported the 2 piece bolt shimming kit from USA and installed these.

    PM me if you're interested.

    I could be interested in a 223 trade of same or higher value.

    I Feel for you @T Bone

    What a bloody heartless woman.

    Best I can suggest is get a new wife,

    Worked for me

    Besides with a rifle like that you should be able to fill the freezer in no time
    Cheers

    @T Bone

    Here's an idea

    Tell the missus you had a sale but it fell through and now no one else wants it so it's best if you keep it for awhile until a new buyer comes along

    Cheers

    Don't bloody tell her! ....... Well not straight away.

    Leave it until you old and demented to tell her ....... That way she'll have forgot all about it by lunchtime

    You tell her you've brought new guns?? What a rookie. Sharpen up son!
    Sneak them in the house when she's in shower like I do. Oh work place delivery address helps too.
    Sure, I've had that machine-gun for ages......
