At the ripe old age of 40 (never though I'd make it to 30!) my gun collection now gives away my age. Gone are the 'black rifles' w/pistol grips and 30 round mags........ in the last 10 years:AR(s), FN, Mini-14 GB, AUG, Valmet 76, Galile(SP), HK 91/93, M14.

Now I only seen to enjoy WWII era guns, a single auto pistol(P7) a few .22s and my snazzy IMI Timberwolf pump-action rifle along with some yuppie revolvers. The .308 Garand, .30 Carbine and .308 Styer Mauser 98 get shot the most thses days. AND I can't tell y'all how much I am looking foward to putting together my GI/no frills 1911 next week!!!


Yes, I made ALOT of $$$ selling off the Black rifles over the years. 'Course the SKS will never go because the ammo is sooooo cheap but I don't even shoot it much anymores............



Only one mag fed rifle & pistol in the collection.............GOD have I gotten that old!!


PLEASE TELL ME I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE

dude,

I don't have any black guns either. All mine have wood and steel.
Well, maybe a bit of aluminum too.

I don't even have any self loading battle rifles. All I got is bolt rifles.

Your not old, I'm older'n you.

At the ripe old age of 51 I've been buying nothing but "black rifles" and post WW2 semi-auto military rifles. I must have been buying when you were selling.:D I have a fear that our bolt-action rifles will be around alot longer than our self-loaders. :uhoh: I collect them as much for myself as for my kids, I know they will treasure them later, much later.:)
