  1. Whatchu talkin' bout Willis? Ain't no Arnold in this cinematic masterpiece.
  2. Who doesn't love this movie? I've seen it about a million and eight times but it is on again and I am watching. Be well.
  3. If you are going to keep posting news links at least post one that ties your thread title in. http://www.knoxnews.com/story/news/crime/2017/06/22/onetime-reserve-officer-facing-charges-loudon-county-shooting-deaths-sister-fiancee/419919001/
  4. I just came here to comment on this. That Canadian broke the record set by a bloody Englishman! Our snipers need to step up their game, go USA!
  5. for-sale

    That bayonet to the right might go with the Chinese type 53 you have posted.
  6. The only reason I know of people removing bolts is as some kind of security measure, you know less tempting to those who might have sticky fingers. Being the suspicious type I would be very suspicious of a rifle without its bolt for $40.
  7. Probably not too much if you didn't agree on a price upfront.
  8. Is latch for side-folding stock, comrade.
  9. Just being in the vicinity of a Cracker Barrel gives me the trots and I've got an iron gut. Their geegaws hanging on the walls would be the last thing I'd be on the hunt for.
  10. Probably not but it might singe you eyebrows.
  11. They got caught because they are cowards and knew very well that a private citizen will drop them much faster than the law would.
  12. I find it strange and confusing. How does it work?
  13. I'm all into milsurp bolt actions. It was my dad's thing and he passed it on to me. Mosin's will put a hurt on you after a while but I have a theory based on thousands of rounds. First, when surplus ammo was cheap I would go pop off 60-80 rounds or however much I brought in one session to the point I was just pulling the trigger so I didn't have to take any ammo home. That's punishing in and of itself. Second, Mosin's have a shorter stock than normal rifles. I firmly believes that makes a difference. I broke down and put a nancy pad on my main Mosin and it definitely helped in increasing that length of pull and getting an extra 20-40 rounds out of a ammo burning session. Now, an 8mm in K98 configuration with proper 196 gr surplus ammo is absolutely brutal. The heavier the bullet the more it kicks...or beats you up. Romanian surplus 8mm carries 150 gr bullets and Is a joy to shoot compared to Turkish and Yugo. While the Turkish is the hottest of the bunch, it is not "machine gun ammo". I think it's just more suited to the longer barreled Mauser the Turks made. I know the Turk stuff I have performed noticebly different in my Yugo M48 (shot was high) than Yugo and Romanian stuff. My '43 nazi stamped Mauser Oberdorf K98 has not tasted corrosive ammo since WWII and never will.
  14. Pretty good for being 9 feet away.
  15. Strange things are afoot here.
