GunBroker.com is tooting its horn leading up to the 2016 SHOT Show. The eBay of firearms fired off a couple of press releases on high end rifles up for auction. After contemplating the great Otto Carter’s work, I’ve begun to look at engraved guns in a new light. This piece — has special appeal. Because lever guns. Because Texas. I would prefer an older gun or a more modern theme, but . . . that gun would look mighty fine on my wall. The current bid is around $15k. When I finish this post I’ll go check my sofa for loose change. Full press release after jump . . .
