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.

I've been a Milsurp collector for about ten years. Finally stumbled upon this website. :doh:

Welcome from a fellow Michigander. I see you are in Wyoming. All of my incoming rifles make a stop at the UPS center there.

indy1919a4. I guess my favorite milsurp is a Greek Air Force return Cmp M-1 Garand. A close second a Bavarian M-1 Carbine again from the CMP.
I forgot! The why are these my favorites. I guess it's because I've studied WW2 for most of my life and these firearms represent that war. Plus they are a blast to shoot! I will try to get some pics of my Bavarian as soon as I figure out how. :?

nrobertb. For a while, the UPS man/person, and I were on a first name basis. They seemed to know what was in those long skinny boxes. Of course, several came via FedEx. That's what the CMP has a contract with. Unfortunately, my safe is full and at my age, another safe isn't in the cards. To top it off my son doesn't like milsurps ;(

My son isn't interested either. What's wrong with this younger generation? :lol:

Both are nice, I have been coveting a Bavarian Carbine for a bit.. Anytime you would like to post a picture or two, I am sure more then a few eyes would like to see them :) .. Congrads..
