Re: How can you buy milsurp in today's market?

I bought (another) can of RoK surplus .30 carbine instead. Those actually haven't gone up in price too much. I bought a can for I think $380 or $385 back in March, right after the Wuhan flu lockdowns started. This last one was $395 from the same vendor (SGAmmo). I need to stock-up on some .30 carbi...

Re: How can you buy milsurp in today's market?

Ammo and clips are a pain to locate. There are several sellers on the eBay offering clips...they're averaging around $15 a piece. Could be worse. Could be Berthier clips. Those start at around $30, with 8mm Lebel running north of a $1 a round. (I looked into it because the local LGS had a Berthier ...

Re: 2020 Hurricane Season

Like I mentioned before, Sally pushed over several pecan and pine trees here at my place. All were dropped to the south from the northern wind from Sally's west side. Next door at Mom's house, she has a 40' tall white oak in her front yard that developed a slight lean to the south due to Sally....bu...

Re: 2020 Hurricane Season

Claude ham mercy, that was a fast moving storm. We have around 25,000 accounts out on our system....but it looks like mostly errant tree limbs and debris on the lines, and not a bunch of broke poles & spans down. Just heard on the radio that there are close to a million outages all the way up in nor...

Re: How can you buy milsurp in today's market?

Those little Truppe Special Carcano carbines that have been floating around for the last couple months keep tempting me. So far I've been able to resist by thinking about not wanting to add another caliber....and by stroking my Ishy Bastard Scout. :rofl: https://www.budsgunshop.com/images/hiRes/411...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I'm thinking of getting a bayonet for my AR, but mine is a 16 inch barrel carbine and everything I'm finding is designed for 20 inch barrel rifles. I know there's adapters, but everywhere I check is either sold out or backordered by months. Ah well, it's not really necessary, just something I thoug...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

It might be fun to see them bring out one using the 336 action, but a Mare's Leg in .30-30 might kick a bit and be too heavy. Just do like Steve McQueen....carry a .44-40 Mare's Leg, but stuff the belt cartridge loops with .45-70's for intimidation factor. :clownshoes: https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9s...
