Friday the 13th has always been a lucky day for me and Friday the 13th Feb. 2009 was a good one.
I drove out to my friend Clay's house in Mississippi to drop off a M91 stock that I had just finished up for him. We had made plans to drive out to Moss Point MS. to check out a gun shop called Guns & Ammo there. Clay told me that they always had some really cool stuff and sometimes had some really good deals.
Well you talk about a treat to visit this little shop. They had just about everything you could think of and if you had the money, They had some one of a kind things that you could buy.
They had a bunch of Yugo M48's that looked great for $145 each and there was one in a nice Walnut stock that I was going to buy until I saw the clean little M38 sitting on the rack. It was numbers matching and in a M38 stock to boot. I asked how much and the guy tells me $130. It didn't have a sling on it and the cleaning rod was missing. I spotted a Carbine sling on a 91/30 and asked if I could have the sling if I bought the rifle. The guy said yes and the rifle is mine now and the sling was a big plus. :D
Well here are the pic's, enjoy.
