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: Argentine 1891 Long Rifle

Great find - classic Mauser long rifles are works of art.
The ammo here is about $0.75 / round (USD) - how is the availability / affordability in your area?

Re: New to Me M39

Very nice indeed!! I just love the "B" barrels. While it looks awesome now, just wait until you put some of Tom's Pine Tar mix on it. They were made for each other.

All I can say to my neighbors in CA is to remember the last half of the old water conservation saying when you're at the voting booth - "...If it's Brown, flush it down!"

Re: Thompson M1A1 from my collection

SBR = Short Barreled Rifle One of our ridiculous U.S. guns laws requires that "normal" rifles have a barrel length of 16 inches or greater. If you want to have an SBR, you have to first get approval from the government by filling out forms and paying a one-time tax stamp to get it registered. A lot ...

Re: 1851 Navy...

Congrats - nice looking revolver. The slower loading process of BP shooting gets you more invested in each round you fire. Love the grease, smoke, and smell - everyone should try BP shooting.

Re: Previous member

Welcome back to SRF - what type of milsurps do you like to collect and shoot? I just go for whatever interests me (greatly limited by budget of course) and what's available. So much has simply dried up in the last 10-20 years.

Re: Aguila Super Extra .22 LR ammunition review

Congrats on the win and thanks for the heads-up on the ammo. I bought some last year just to stock up but haven't tried it yet. Several of my semi-auto pistols are quite picky about what they like so I try to keep a variety on hand.
