Just wanted to share a pic of my small collection....

From the top...
Mosin-Nagant M44
Beretta 92FS (I brought both this and the M44 home last Weds. Fun day!)
Browning T-Bolt (This is actually my g/f's. Her Dad bought it in 1971 when he got home from Vietnam.)
Remington 597 (I can't say enough good things about this gun)
Mossberg 702 Plinkster (Fun little gun to shoot. Going to put a red-dot sight on it. )

PirateRadio, I got to thinking... I used to have that few firearms. Watch out, your disease may get significantly worse. For example, a few years back, my collection was a 1917, a single-shot .22lr, and a MN.


I have a few more than those, now.

Oh, I know its going to get worse. When I get into something, I REALLY get into it.

For example....

PTK, you like SBR'ing things, don't you? I honestly can't blame you.

I call dibs on the ESP Vee in the front row.

Yes I do. I think the 1934NFA is absurd but I do still want my short rifles and short shotguns.

Nolo
December 22, 2007, 12:16 PM
Do you shoot them much, PTK?

PTK
December 22, 2007, 12:16 PM
Yes. In fact, I'm headed out with friends in a little while for some shooting.

Nice lookin' family. I've wanted a Beretta like that one you got fer years.

Exactly what do you have to do to SBR something? And is the recoil on that SBR shottie bad?

PTK
December 22, 2007, 12:27 PM
SBR = short barreled RIFLE, SBS = short barreled shotgun. :D

Yes. They're horribly nasty, and hurt much. I love them dearly.

Yeah, I knew that. Semantics.
Is there a technique to reducing that recoil?

PTK
December 22, 2007, 12:31 PM
Yeah, you don't fire it.

Nolo
December 22, 2007, 12:34 PM
So how do you SB something (legally).

jcjacobvt
December 22, 2007, 12:46 PM
Simple for SBR or SBS

1. Start with two (2) ATF F 5320.1 (Form 1)s, two (2)fingerprint cards, le signature, (2)photos, $200. check from you to NFA.
Also a Certificate of Compliance ATF F 533020.
2. After sending in and blessed by NFA Branch and returned one form with Stamp and
their signature.
3. Then and only then you can cut down.

PTK is that a short barreled Mosin on the bottom left? If that is how on god's earth do you shoot it without breaking your wrist?

The recoil is quite brisk, but then again I also have two SBS 12ga there. One weighs less than two pounds - now THAT is recoil with 3" slugs.

PR, have you ever had the action and barrel off the wood of the Browning???? If not, you may want to do so to make sure you don't have a "salt stock". During some years of production Browning was using some sort of salt mixture to speed the process of drying stocks so as to speed up production. If you have a salt stock the action and barrel could be rusted beyond belief....... Check it and let us know, I hope you have a "regular" stock!!!!!

Wow, I am liking that guitar collection. Is that a Blondie Tele in the back? I will take that one!

Two of the coolest things in the world to collect and you have them both... Instruments and Firearms... cool.

Not blonde, see-through red. A buddy of mine made it.

I call dibs on the ESP Vee in the front row.

I'll take the LP beside it, and the Ibanez (looks like an RG) back left.
