Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Walmart says 21 to buy a long gun

I wonder if Walmart would receive the same accolades from the general public if they had banned the sale of tobacco products to adults under the age of 21. After all, if Walmart has no obligation to make an otherwise legal sale based on a person's age, couldn't Walmart save the poor hapless American...

Re: Never will I speak ill of the forum members here

I never thought to put a word to what this board has that others lack, but class definitely fits. I'm a member on an AZ gun board and this one, that's plenty for me.

That AZ forum has its fair share of people with diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain; I like this place better.

After dragging the whole van-load of us up to Idaho for some eclipse watching, here, assuming I've done it correctly, is a picture of the sun's corona that I took.

It was an event so awe-inspiring that even my three year old was briefly silenced.

Re: Gun shows

Lately if I go to a gun show around here it's to listen to some of the ridiculous sales tactics to justify their overly optimistic prices. I once had a seller tell me that "we blew up the ammo factory in Serbia so his box of PRVI 6.5 x 55mm was actually worth three dollars more" than elsewhere. Or t...

Re: Looking Back

I would feel honored if I were you. My grandfather never spoke of his service to anyone, not even my grandmother. Every story he ever told either ended before leaving CONUS or started after returning; any experience he had during the war went with him to his grave. That's what he wanted I suppose.

I would trade my .380 Swedish model 1907 for an original 9x20mm in a heartbeat. I guess the grass is always greener...

Re: Ljungman value?

I haven't seen a Ljungman for less than $800 in a long time; if I found one for $650 I would probably pounce on it.

Re: August 21 eclipse

I have family in Idaho; I might just have to see if they'll put me up for a night or two. I hear motels are pretty hard to come by along that arc already.

Also looking forward to the classifieds section, though at 30 posts it'll be a while, since b.s. filler posts don't count.

Re: Glad to See the Forum Back

Also glad to see SRF back. This was my primary resource for all surplus gun related knowledge, and hopefully it'll be that once again.

Many thanks to all involved.
