I bought this some time ago and left it unattended in the safe for years. I dug it out today and took it shooting gophers. It is capable of fine accuracy alt least “Minute Of Gopher”…

Now that is too fine a rifle to leave unattended!

That is like leaving your prized Mastiff locked barking in the kennel. 

Question is, Did the Gophers bark back?

It certainly is, those gophers should feel honored to fall to such a handsome specimen.
