  1. I live in south Knoxville just outside the city limits. I can throw a rock into the city. I can't remember a day when I haven't heard shooting. Someone was shooting full auto yesterday.
  2. My wife of 31 years and I are now retired. We have done well with investing. And some blessings too. We have had several investment guys. The first one talked me out of Apple at $7. I never got over that, but another guy talked me out of selling at near bottom in 2008 so I guess it evens out. I hope this economy recovers cause I ain’t going back to a job
  3. If you have never seen a 12 pounder shooting grape shot it is an impressive sight.
  4. Take care of yourself. I worked hard and played harder. Now I am 66 and broken down.
  5. Glenn

    Gray pride!

    It's a common affliction of old men. noassatall
  6. I've managed to find a few boxes at gun shows..quite mild compared to what I used to hand load but did give me some brass.
  7. apparently you are correct. Years ago I went there and was told "we only sell to LEO"so I haven't been back. their website says open to the public.
  8. craigs is still there but is LEO only.
  9. This guys dad was a German guard and his mother was a Jewish nurse. I would like to know the details of that but it's way too personal to ask
  10. UPDATE apparently the lawyers in Germany took care of all the paperwork as my friend received a crate of personal items at customs. After signing a pile of papers he opened the crate and the mosin was included. I haven't seen it yet but he did say the front stock has been cut off. Cool to have a wwII rifle that you know the story.
  11. Thanks for the information. My friend will have to go it alone. I don't think I want to get involved. Seems like too much trouble, even for a family heirloom .
  12. Wow amazing for 1 gun when importers are bringing them in by the hundreds or thousands. I am sure my friend will not be able to afford that. That leaves his relatives in Germany to deal with it. It's hard to imagine what the rifle has been through. East Germany prohibited possession and I guess Germany still does
  13. Thanks for the link. I had searched ATF website but didn't find inherited. It looks cut and dried.
  14. Does anyone know if it is possible to get an inherited relic into the US? A friend of mine has inherited a Mosin used by his father in WWII. The bizarre thing is his father was a German soldier who spent the latter part of the war as a camp guard. Apparently they were using whatever scrounged weapons they could get
  15. I still have a 357 maximum 10" contender. While the factory loads were rather anemic, 158 grain@1575 fps or so, handloads would produce 200 grain@ 2100 fps or so. Definatly get some attention.
