Re: Ishapore mag capacity

Re: No Internet In NM and Blizzard coming

Rob: We have 6” of snow from yesterday and more coming tomorrow. Just staying home and watching the neighbors vehicles sliding down the hill into the ditch...you know those retired folks that have to go out every day for cigarettes or beer?

I have a like new Polish and it is about as accurate as throwing a cinder-block. just my luck.
I have two Type 53's and not only do they shoot very well, both have "Krag" smooth actions.
Same for me. T53 a great shooter, slick action AND a nice trigger!
