I think i posted this in an earlier forum. My first CVA came from a Target Store in Knoxville. How many old timers remember when they sold guns.

I bought my first CVA muzzleloader at an Osco Drug Store in 1978.

Back then they (at least their Mountain Rifles) were made in the USA.

Back then you could buy TC Hawken rifles at JC Penny and at Sears.

I remember when they both sold firearms. Target when they first opened here had a very good sporting goods dept and even sold reloading items for short while before they went to heck in a hand basket.

BTW My first ML was CVA Kent. Kit from JC Pennys West Town

BTW 2 Do you guys remember Untied General Products??

BTW 3 We don't need to recall just how long ago either of the above were \:D \:D

I've had three CVA guns over the years and, yeah, well the Hawkin with the 1:66 barrel and the brass hardware was kind of hokey, but I killed several deer with it. And that's when you had to find a machine shop to tap it for your scope bases. (I didn't know any gunsmiths)....I've got an Optima nowadays (won it in a church wild game supper)....it shoots great. It's my overpriced Knight with the Green Mountain bbl that's all over the paper
