    Currently the ABC News channel here has the story as a 'crawler' at the bottom of the TV screen as "132 year old rifle found against tree in US national park".

    Winchester records state it was manufactured and shipped in 1882!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    "It probably has a great and interesting story" Ms Andler told The Washington Post.

    Indeed. Late last week the 1930's journal of a local rancher 'Lonesome' Hoss McSweeny a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition, was discovered in an abandoned homestead not 5 miles away.... " May 12th. Went and took a dump while drunk, lost my f******' rifle....."

    Case closed. Ned.

    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
