Deep Sea Lee


Visited a gunsmith yesterday in Waco to pick up my venerable .22 JC Higgins. The 'smith had replaced several springs, a pin and built up the lifter, all for the remarkably sane price of $35. 

So we fell to talking about Lee Enfields.

Putin - get rid of that old Mosin Nagant.
My friend thought they were OK, but only as "boat guns". Boat guns? Yes. For killing sharks. 

Now we know.

Result.

Only rifle I've ever fired.
But then I don't really like guns.
Sword / longbow is more my style.

Two ferocious weapons GT.

Lee's were popular here for some time after WW2 - lots of surplus rifles that were well made and accurate. They're still pretty cheap but getting rarer. I enjoy mine, though the ammo's pricey.

Cheers.

Killing sharks? You mean "liturgists?"

LSP said...

Liturgists and the Lee? One shot, one kill, Infidel. Great bang for the buck.

The photo of Putin sure looks PhotoShopped to me.

Chas, I think you're right.

Good old Putin and the sharks...
