I almost bought one when they first came out- 1970, I think. But I bought a bow instead because bow season was longer.

I use to have a retired German Army Officer working for me. He immigrated to the US because of the hunting and gun laws in Germany. His first year here we invited him to our annual family Christmas since he wasn't going back to Germany. He brought his 1760's Jaeger rifle ... THAT HE STILL HUNTS WITH.

He also brought several other ancient guns he still hunts or shoots along with a couple of black powder rifles he made while in Germany. When I say "made" I literally mean "fabricated from scratch". He bought very few of the components (he bought the springs because he said he couldn't master tempering them).

His job in the Bundeswehr was an engineer involved with finite analysis of strike proof structures.

He was an example of why Americans are viewed as illerate idiots around the world. He gave the impression his education / abilities / intellect was "average" amongst the German population.
