Frame it, then start collecting, dude.....

What are you waiting for ? ? ? ?

You don't have a closet full of Mosin-Nagant variants yet ? ? ? ?

No "Pistole Parabellum '08's" AKA Lugers ? ? ?

Where are your Krags and Springfield '03's ? ? and the assorted SMLE's ? ?

Just bustin' your chops a bit, MuzzleBlast. Congrats on the Cruffler Status, although I suspect you may shortly find yourself cash poor, but C&R rich. Not really a bad thing, though.:D :D :D :D

DON'T sign it. Make copies and then sign those. Put the original somewhere safe.

Other than that send signed copies out to the major distributors to keep on file (also Midway and Brownells give a discount to C&R).

Kiss your savings account goodbye and prepare to become good friends with the UPS guy.

Put an asbestos liner on your credit cards -- you'll be burning through them. Definitely send copies to Midway and Brownells. I got my license fee back the first week I had it from the dealer discount. Get yourself a Russian captured K98 before they go bye bye.

What ever you do, do not, repeat do not, buy a Mosin-Nagant in any shape, form or fashion. Those insidious, wily, and dastardly rifles have totally ruined my life. If you find a good deal on a Mosin please, keep it in sight but don't get too close and immediately PM me.:D

sorry, i'm dumb. whats a "C&R" license?

uummm congrats on it i think......

BATF license for "Curios & Relics". C&R holder can purchase direct from dealers/importers, etc.

More to it than that, but that is the 1-minute explanation.

Many Many Eastern Block firearms are what you need.
Makarovs from East Germany
Mosin-Nagant revolvers in 7.62x38R
Beretta models 1934,1935.
Argentine Military Surplus handguns are fun.
Sistema Colts.

(man I hate always being broke)
