Had one of those Ortgies back in the day. Paid $50 for it, sold it for $100. Wish I still had it....

For a semi I'll go with a Remington 550 and a single shot a Gustolof k98 trainer.

I call it that because it has the same lion emblem as the pistols on it.

So that Lion.. (which is Kick ass mind you) is called Ortigie??? I think I am still missing something..

I always heard the lion referred to as a Dormant Lion, which I thought was kinda foreboding, considering Germany just lost the war and another would be on the way in a few years...

Valmet 150 Standard model target or 1950 Marlin 39 can't choose. And you thought I would say Suhl 150 ;)
Wow, I see you're as much of a rookie here as I am. Kind of a shock, huh?
And no, the Valmet is no surprise!
