Park your money and invest it in a few months. It should be a buyers market for most anything soon.

Re: BM-59 or M14?

My M1A is an outstanding shooter at long range. I've had it for 40 years now and it has never let me down. Would I carry it in war? No. I had 24 of them in my armory while in the 'Nam.

Re: My new to me Ruger P89

I’ve shot my brother-in-law’s P-85 on several occasions. Robust but very accurate and pleasant to shoot. I actually prefer the grip and feel of it as compared to the Ruger American 9mm. It ate everything that it was fed with no issues. They can be had for a good bargain.

That sounds like a fabulous event. Our force used to have a 100yd knockdown contest with Glocks. A little bit indirect fire...a little bit ricochet...a little bit holdover.

If you’re going to Virginia, then head to Quantico and check out the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
