Our favorite gun geek John Besse left for his summer home on a tributary of the Snake in Idaho in the middle of the night so nobody would make a fuss. I wasn’t too surprised.
Here he is with his latest project, a restored M99 Savage in the uncommon “250- 3000” caliber.
He is partial to my favorite retriever, the ever – quirky Chesapeake, and has two: grumpy middle- aged Willie and young goofy Andy.
This M 92 isn’t quite done yet. It had a surface as pitted as the moon’s .
