You know that old story about a guy buying a farm and when he opens up the barn there are half a dozen Corvettes sitting on blocks, no rust, perfect condition. It's like the fantasy of every car enthusiast in the world. Well, something like that happened to me the other day.

I stopped at a little store in Hamlin, Texas called Bell's Home and Auto. Bell's is one of those stores that have basically gone the way of the dinosaur because of big box stores full of Chinese junk and highways that bypass small towns. They sell everything from plumbing to tires to hardware to guns. And that brings us back to the reason I'm posting.

Rodger Bell, the owner of Bell's (clever marketing isn't it?) has built up an incredible collection of Sako rifles. I bet I counted 40 of them in this little store. I saw everything from 22Hornet to 416! He's a Sako guy. You've got a passionate collector that has decided to sell his collection in Hamlin, population of maybe 2000 souls. So, he made a website to sell off his collection. You can find it at www.sakosource.com.

Before you think something bad about me or him, I've got nothing to gain from this and he doesn't know I'm posting it. I just stumbled into that dusty barn and saw all those beautiful Vettes, so to speak. Now I'm sharing the find and hoping for karma to bring good things my way in the future!

If you're looking for a Sako and you already know what they are then have a look at his website. If not, take a half a day and drive out to Hamlin and introduce yourself to Rodger. He's a good guy, easy to talk to and he can tell you all about Sakos (and other brands that built on Sako actions).

Nice guns. I have 2 pre-Garcia Finnbears that are going to my sons. I also have the paperwork from the Kaiserslaughtern Germany Army/Air Force Rod and Gun Club where my Uncle purchased them back in 1969 and 1970. The .270 cost $109 and the 30-06 $119.

I handled the BRNO 22 Hornet with the dual triggers. That is in the top three best triggers I've ever touched.

Good Wednesday to you all.

And I have a Sako he doesn't have.

I'll bump this back up for those of you looking for Sakos. Give Rodger a call or check out his website. Good guy and really knows his guns.

I talked to him yesterday and let him know it's posted. He's got a security system that he's comfortable with.

And, if there's a category of people you don't want to rob, it's old men who really love guns!
