Greg, if I recall correctly, I might be adding 360+ years to my life.

One I am working on for a friend it came with a Perch Belly, Offhand is no longer doable and this one will now enable him to compete off the bench.

How many years does refining, upgrading, restoring, or otherwise working on a Ballard add?

Days spent working on old rifles do not diminish the days of your life.
Same as days on the water!

  

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools !

You don't own a Ballard?  How do you live with yourself?

The way I'm thinking, the way the magic of Ballards work - even if you owned one - it rubbed off, BUT, you had to have owned it, borrowed doesn't count.  I had one once when I was a dealer but that possession wasn't officially mine, just on paper for the short duration.   
When I first heard about this magic I was already 5 or 6 deep in them - ignorance is bliss I guess.  Huh 
I'm waiting on another to show up now, I feel fortunate! the sale price on Ballards with this secret out will probably be driven up again.  Sad
