    Oh, I’ve shot it a lot, she’s flawless.  A “deal” came up on this and it was the exact amount I had saved.  Seemed like. Sign so I bought my dream rifle.  Ever since I was a young teen I’ve wanted an m16.   Stupid excited it’s finally here.  Wonder how long until the stamp comes in 😂

    So you have been having congigal visits with it at your FFL?

    I think about that from time to time, heading up to the farm for a long weekend. "How would the inventory of this vehicle read to someone who doesn't know any better...?"

    A thousand 22lr rounds is a decent afternoon for a couple of guys, but I'm sure it sounds insane to someone who isn't as worldly as we happen to be.

    If they only realized how small a box 1k rounds of even 7.62x39 is. And how quickly it can be exhausted just plinking around. 

    I mean in comparison how many golf balls does an avid golfer hit each year..a large bucket at the driving range can have up to 150 balls.

    Looks like quite a bargain on a Colt Government Model here in the classifieds.

    I passed that one along to him. Not been able to get him on the phone to discuss things though. 

    If I had not just dropped waaayy too much on car repairs right after paying for renovations, I might think about that ine.

    what is your spending limt. 

    What is your price limit? Would help.... 

    Yep. Ways fun trying to pry details from someone who wants you to help them. 

    So far no info coming back to me. So I am waiting until I get more details.

    Still having issues.  When I paste the url into the box, this is what it looks like, and it will not let me post.  Anyone else experiencing this?  I am doing everything from a phone if it matters. 


    That means that the link is not a direct link. Imgur made it harder to find recently.

    If you pull up your imgur account in the app and copy the url for the image.  Paste it into Safari or Chrome and it will open on the web at the imgur mobile site. In Chrome you can press and hold on the pic to choose 'Open image in new tab'. Then in that tab, just copy the url displayed in the address line. Not sure how to do that in Safari though. 

    I did these steps to get the url for this image. 


  6. @Erich Yeah, I am trying to get more details, but he is being slow to respond and I have not had a chance to call. 

    @BHunted yeah if the price fits, I would suggest something along that lines. I saw a 1933 1911a1 for sale somewhere that caught my eye. Too rich for my peasant blood though. The unit price range will probably be the key factor

  7. Out of the blue my Dad asked me for help to locate a Colt 1911 Government Model.45 for a friend. Particulars have been pretty limited so far.  I am trying to get more details second hand. I have Googled looking for online retailers. I am not a 1911 expert, but I know a bit. Just difficult to narrow down search results with so many options in 1911s

    Anyone know anywhere that is better than others to find a deal on one?


  8. Good reason to use latex gloves when field dressing.

    The worst thing I ever had was a fungus infection in my lung from ...get this...working in the dirt. I was helping during flood cleanup in Missouri.  The doc swore I had TB or cancer. Just good to remember we are fragile creatures susceptible to all kinds of nasty stuff mother nature has floating around. 

  9. Started this at the first of the month, but have been swamped. Still important to consider.

    This month is a good time to look over your plans. Even if it is just some flashlights, candles, a Coleman stove, and some extra canned goods, you would be better prepared than 90% of people. With winter around the corner it is good to know you don't have to get out in the bad weather.

    Of course some people take it much further.... I neither condone nor condemn either stance.

    In case you want to know more, here is my post about it.
