I am eager to see some ‘new” purchases from the Cody show posted to the forum! 🙂

Are you in cahoots with High Wall Hartman? What did he promise you? Smells like a set up job to me… Laugh

I will say that the show was a great experience for me. Maybe I hit it at just the right time in my collecting life…I don’t know. To start with Rick and Georgia Hill are top notch. There were probably another dozen or more members of this forum there that I had multiple conversations with and all of them made time to talk. A few of them I spent a lot of time with, learned a ton and hopefully I didn’t drive them nuts. Then there were the collectors who don’t use the forum much or aren’t in WACA…they were also great. Everybody I talked to for more than a minute was excited to be there. It was a just an awesome and fun four days of learning. I loved it and am already looking forward to next time. I can’t think of enough good things to say about it.

No collusion with Bert here. Just interested to see what moves the collectors mind at the Cody show. I’m to east of the Mississippi to make frequent trips that far west, though we did make it out last year to the museum but not the show. Did you pick up anything “new”?

Gene,

What Brad is not telling you, is that he bought a Savage Model 1899 at the Cody show! To his credit, it was chambered in the 25-35 WCF cartridge, and as a bonus, it has the Browning Brothers stamp on the barrel (it passed through the Odgen shop).

While almost everyone else has departed Cody, I am still here (conducting research at the museum).

I think Bert was OK handling this rifle as long as he kept one eye on the 25-35 or the Browning stamp. Otherwise I think he would have gone into some kind of an allergic reaction.

Brad,
Is there any white deer hair on that 99 or is that Bert standing next to that Albino. In his younger days of course, before all that good Submarine chow.

That’s a great picture. I’m not positive what 1899 that is. TD with straight grip and integrated lug instead of a ramp…maybe an 1899H? Sure looks like a gun made somewhere in the teens with that windgauge rear sight and that front sight. Checkered wood too. Hard to see if the butt stock has any checkering. Wonder what the caliber was. Here is my 22HP 1899H but it’s obviously not checkered. Both guns have a steel buttplate instead of the hard rubber one which I understand was an option.

Excellent picture Gene!

Great looking rifle. I have often been tempted to add a 99 to my collection. That’s one of the reasons I picked up that photo(besides the albino). Again, very nice 99.

If there is no High Wall in the picture, it definitely is not me ❗

Sorry Bert, I just went back and reread Brad’s post. I thought he referred to you as high boot Hartman not high wall Hartman. My bad. Laugh

Yah that old feller almost looks mad that the albino was the first thing to pop out. That looks like a checkered forearm his gun.

Another thing about the Cody show was all the history and entertainment around town. One thing I was slightly aware of beforehand were the many tales of the legendary Big Red. However I had no idea of the size and scope of these tales until I got there and I’m slightly embarrassed I had underestimated its awesomeness. The telling of the many legends of Big Red only happen in Cody for about two weeks in July. To really hear them properly you need to get in real close to the speaker…say 75 or 100 yards. Oh, the glory of Big Red as it roared through the streets of Cody every summer, sucking in Smart Cars through its great intake and unleashing a wake of black destruction out of its unmuffled tailpipe…all the while acheiving 20.837 mpg if you do the math correctly…

Oh, what a sight to see the herds of innocent tourists running for their lives as ol’ Red rumbled down main street…………hardly noticing the Fords and Chevys being crushed in its unforgiving path.

I had to avert my eyes a couple times on this thread due to some non-Winchester photos, but not before I ‘accidentally’ saw the gorgeous 1899 with strong CCing that Hedley Lamarr. That would be enough to cause many a person to fall into temptation. 😀

Thanks for the compliments on the 1899 Kirk. I hope some of you Canadian guys make the trip to the Cody show some year when I’m there too. It would be good to meet some of you guys.

Yes Gary that’s how I remember it. Many onlookers stared at Big Red as it drove off into the sunset but a solemn few simply lowered their heads and turned away as they knew the rest of the story. For the driver of Big Red was cursed you see; fated to spend the rest of his days searching every library, every microfiche, every archive he could find. He would search every back room, every flop house and under every rock in the West for the one shred of evidence that would attribute the design of Big Red…to John Browning.

Brad, I was at a yard auction Saturday and this 99 came along and I had to grab it. It doesn’t have the age or caliber {1951, 300 savage) or Ogdon for that matter,but it is in 98+ condition. I took a quick pic of it to let you know that for the time being this will be the partner to that picture. Now my wife knows i’m nuts!
