At random: Insignia of the Navy's submarine service is a submarine flanked by two dolphins. Dolphins, or porpoises, the traditional attendants to Poseidon, Greek God of the Sea and patron deity of sailors, are symbolic of a calm sea, and are sometimes called the 'sailors' friend. In addition to the Dolphins, those World War II submariners who participated in successful combat patrols may wear the coveted Submarine Combat Insignia.

I just acquired another one to add to the collection. Came across a 30-30 and paid to much for it. I already have the 303, 300 (Janet Blair's rifle), and 250-3000. Now all I lack is the 25-35, which I probably won't find. That 300 remains my gun of choice and has dumped a lot of deer plus one bear and a couple of yotes

In reality that is not a bad price for one. The best Sheep Guide there ever was swore by one just like it. I gave more than that for the one I have. Own Four 25-35's, a Savage 99, a Winchester 94, a Ballard and a Mini Sharps. The Mini Sharps was built to be the Grand Son's Deer and Woodchuck rifle. Great caliber for the young, starting out hunter.

Then I got one hell of a deal on the 30-30 at $550. I will have to save pennies to get one of them.

Your still short a take-down with a spare 410 barrel. Save a lot more pennies. Especially with the original case. By the way, my 25-35 is 95%, and it took me eight years to find one that good. If it is in 85% or better, you did great on the 30-30. The internet makes finding those things a lot easier than stopping at a whole bunch of gun shops when you travel, just not as much fun.
