So.....I bought a few guns recently....

It must be the heat here in the south...

Decided I needed a Dirty Bird Luger and a Model 06/29 Swiss Luger.
Then I had to have a rifle to go with each one of those....so... I picked
up a nice refinished K98 with a Dirty Bird and a Schmidt Rubin Straight Pull.

I thought I had all this milsurp stuff out of my system years ago. It wasn't even
my birthday or christmas for cryin out loud, but I got some nice hardware.

Hope u guys don't catch what I had......

...been in accumulation liquidation mode for quite awhile now.

Maybe I took the W.E.G. cure?

I just bought my 6th Berthier Lebel in 3 weeks. When a bug bites me, it bites hard. I have an 1890 Carbine, 2 Mle 1907-15's, 2 Mle 16's and one Turk Forestry Carbine.

I just got a K31 (after foolishly selling the four I had years ago [for hefty profits]). I still have the itch to get another. If I'm going to be paying upwards of 6 bills, I may as well get one that is in damned fine shape. Kinda want a K11, but don't want to support another logistics train.

The first step is to admit you have a problem.

2 weeks we have our local gun show. I think since it's the last freedom-based gun show here in the PRC, people will be showing up with wheelbarrows and hand-trucks and ammo is going to be sold out FAST.

C&Rs - hmmmm...

I am looking at some guns I might buy, Ruger Wranglers are in stock here and $200. Getting the urge for a Winchester model 92 in 44 mag. Plus shopping for a 6 inch Python.

Magazines, must, buy, more, magazines! Picked up 5 on sale a while back for the S&W 22A. Aim supplied four more for the Glock 26, and 5 for the G17. Today I found a fair deal and ordered 5 OEM Ruger mags for my quartet of MKII pistolas. I had 10 MecGar mags and 5 Ruger mags for the MKII's but decided <4 mags per pistol has not acceptable. Now I am even (10&10) on factory and aftermarket mags for the MKII's.

Earlier this year, I picked up my 10th magazine for a S&W M52 - .38 Master.
Made as a bullseye gun, it shoots only .38 wadcutters from 5 round magazines.
No aftermarket mags ever made, that I'm aware of, and originals are typically $100+ each.
So if you want 10 (like me) a guy has to invest nearly as much in mags as the pistol itself.
They are super cool, though.



If you see any of these mags laying around for $5, buy 'em!

Yep, got lucky as I believe it was five mags that came with my 52 when I traded into it. Found one more for $20 on a gun show table so I think I have six now. Supposedly you can cut the slot down so six rounds fit and feed. I would love to have some six-round 52 mags so I could shoot the old girl in NRA Action pistol, but can't bring myself to cut on one.

Cut on the $20 one, then you won't feel such trepidation.

I have a 500, with the 18 inch barrel and extended magazine tube. I proceeded to copy the Marine Corps version, and my home defense shotgun now even has a bayonet.
