Re: Dick's Sporting to remove guns.

They're "doubling down on Virtue Signalling". I hope they realize the kind of money they're losing to make a point, because they certainly don't seem interested in making wise business decisions any more. 10% sales drop overall, closing 35 Field & Stream Stores & so on, but they don't seem to be hav...

Re: MD stamped DP rifle @ $400

Exactly.
They should possibly have been stamped "DPO" for Drill Purposes ONLY!

Re: MD stamped DP rifle @ $400

OK, got it, thanks.
DP wasn't necessarily "Broken", or worn out. Sure many of them were, but some were just old & there were many many more than needed particularly after WW2.
I'm sure some decent, but well used rifled were DP'd just to meet demand.

Re: Enfield No 4mk1 Sniper rifles

Those combined markings would (If I'm reading it correctly) be unique to the (much rarer) converted trials rifle!
Its one of a comparatively rare , less than 1,300 rifles, version & so probably worth more than the average No4Mk1(T).

Re: For anyone looking on F/B we got "Zukked" again.

While you are all entitled to your opinions, not everyone feels that way.
This was just meant as a heads up to the many that do use F/B & might have been wondering, nothing else.

If you don't know I can't explain it to you. you're right, I don't know why someone needs to be on FB telling the entire world about how their bowl movements went or other "noteworthy" aspects of their otherwise pathetic life, I will never understand that. If thats all you have to discuss ...

No problem with "fair", just don't short sell as you'll be cheating yourself if you do. Nowadays a Grand IS a fair price.
