Yes, it is a cool display. Another patron saw me get up close to inspect it and he commented “that a Hawken?“ . I said that it doesn’t look like a Hawken ....well that kicked off a web search by both of us and made for some good conversation that even got the manager involved. It would be neat to be able to let them know a little history on it.I think it’s just cool it’s on display at the Cracker Barrel.
I’d leave it be. Adds to the atmosphere and probably pisses off some liberal.
Now I’m craving a soft cooked egg and biscuits...
You should see the sad replica hanging in the same place at our local cracker barrel. Aberdeen MD. area. It's not even as good as a collectors armory. Looks like one of those chinese cap guns. Why bother hanging anything over such an awesome fireplace if it's just a toy and a piece of crap toy at that?
Funny, well kinda sad I guess but I don't think you would see such a thing in my neck of the woods. California. Sure someone would be "offended" by a display like that. I need to move.The rifle is in the Springdale Arkansas Cracker Barrel. Thanks for you input Notchy Bob
