  1. Looks like 32-20. Could be correct.
  2. Looks like some people took the time to grab their carry-on belongings while people in the back of the plane were starting to cook. That surely held up the line inside and it definitely made them slower coming out the door because their hands were full.
  3. Cuomo was ranting on the news tonight because New Yorkers were disobeying his orders and strolling around parks in NYC...said more drastic measures may be necessary to get these people to obey. The Shepard doesn’t like it when the sheep don’t follow orders.
  4. Remember that rubbery taste? The youth of today wont have that memory.
  5. The question doesn’t seem to be whether he’s better off with guns or a boat but rather how best to pay for the boat. Best case would be to pay cash for the boat, but if that’s not an option then I’d trade guns that would otherwise be collecting dust before I’d take out a loan to buy the boat.
  6. I live about 15 minutes from this auction site and have been there numerous times to inspect stuff. The long guns are out on racks and you can freely pick them up and inspect them to your heart’s content and even take photos if you wish. The handguns are in glass cases but there is someone there to get them out for you to inspect, just like a gun store.
  7. I’ve bought a few things from these Powell auctions and got some decent deals. And you’re right about the descriptions as they typically make absolutely no effort to describe these. My impression is that modern black guns seem to go too high but deals can be found on vintage guns.
  8. You can download fillable pdf forms from the CMP website and pre-fill them out and take them with you, but I don’t think they will approve anything until you buy something, but I may be wrong. The most difficult requirements for most people to meet are the live-fire training (can be met with CC permit or hunting license that requires live fire) and the associated club membership (ORSA or Garand Collecters Association will meet that)...you can join GCA online, print the receipt and take it with you. Just be sure to doublecheck the paperwork requirements and take it all with you...along with a lot of money or a credit card with plenty of “room” on it.
  9. Selection has been really good lately, and yes it’s worth the trip. GO!
  10. The rear sight ears have been ground (grinded ?) off so you can’t put a Garand rear site on it.
  11. This is my concern as well...liquidity. I bought gold eagles and silver eagles a few years ago just to get into the precious metals game and to have an investment to hold in my hand. I bought them through Apmex.com and they ship them directly to your house. They will repurchase them at any time at a slight discount from the spot price that changes daily, and people buy/sell them on eBay as well, but in both of those cases you have to put the coins in the mail and arrange for payment. Local “gold buyer” shops will also buy them but, like you said, that would be a negotiation and I expect it would be about like selling something to a pawn shop...not a good price for the seller. In a SHTF situation I think the smaller weight coins or bars like 1/10 oz and 1/4 oz would be more practical than the 1 oz or larger sizes.
  12. Thanks for the info. And I agree 100% with that last statement as we all know that gun laws don’t stop those intent on murder.
  13. Media is talking about a “loophole” in the gun laws that allowed this non-citizen to legally purchase a firearm, but they aren’t actually explaining it (no surprise). Is this true? What are they talking about?

    Why would it ever be a problem which of those boxes were checked when you bought it? Since it was an in-state purchase it had absolutely no bearing on whether you could legally purchase it. If authorities show up at your door asking you to prove that you built it into the configuration checked in a box on a 4473 then there’s a lot more going on...like a registration process.
