Shouldn't that be a "VINTAGE" AR-7 in the tent? I had the slightly larger Marlin Papoose in my pack, just in case we were attacked by marauding squirrels, like the famed "McSquizzy" of the movie Open Season.

One of the guys brought a very old and well cared for Winchester 94 in 40 WCF that was used to guard mines against attacks by Poncho Villa. That was a treat to see.

Thanks for the compliment SB Raider. Glad you enjoyed the passaround. But you made a typo. It's a 30 WCF Winchester. I'm still trying to verify the lineage. The Winchester company doesn't research firearms history anymore. They pawned me off on a couple of museums.

The vintage AR-7 was appropriate, since it was carried by a "vintage" US infantryman. grin

In the interest of full disclosure, it was DD who insisted that I attend the Rendezvous packing long guns, since I was going camping with a bunch of people I met on the INTERNET. But seriously, we had a blast and learned a lot. Anyone who can attend next year should make the effort. They won't be disappointed.

Crap. Yes I did make a typo, it was a 30 WCF.

That Marine is like a fine wine, gets better with age. grin
