When I was a kid most of the fathers had Enfield 303's. Money was scarce what with trying to keep food in the kids and clothes on them, so most of our dads got by with the Enfields and called 'er good. A couple high rollers had real sporting guns - and even fewer had scopes. In my neck of the woods, when Pop went to get his deer gun - it was an Enfield. When he went for his moose and elk gun - it was an Enfield.
When I was young and stupid you could by pristine examples for peanuts - which I did. And promptly sold it or traded it away. I am still kicking myself for that.
