Oh wow.. Driderx... I'm just sayin' some guns ya like n some ya don't... it's just a gun.... dont' let it ruin your day...
Well, that's a good thought, Big B, but it's nowhere near that for me :-). (Or should that be "not yet"? )

I think I'm just particularly disappointed because it's Ruger, a company whose products and philosophy have made it probably my favorite gunmaker over the last 30+ years. So to see one of my favorite Ruger models made worse because of what I consider "philosophical" choices (such as the inclusion of a magazine safety) just disappointed me more than it would have from some other gun brand and model.

Besides, it still goes "bang," so by definition it's still a good gun .

Rossi Coach Gun 20ga. Was looking for a Stoeger CG Supreme, none were to be found at the gun show, this was $250 OTD. Some mushrooming on the firing pins, ordered a couple more while they are still available.

Unusual way the mag is released, I've never seen before on ANY gun, and that releases the barrel to tip up. Also, it is double action, which is a great feature. Neat little rig.

reminds me of the tarus pt-25?

Pawn shops can be a great place for good deals now and then. I just picked up a 1992 Taurus Model 82 (think Smith Model 15) from a local shop. Taurus used to know how to make guns back then.

A nice Spanish FR8 Mauser carbine (easily passed the field gauge test).
Have no idea how to "post photos".

Welcome to THR, malt! I, too, like my Mausers, and that looks like a fine example.

I was unable to resist the call of a Henry "US Survival" (AKA the AR7) as a new toy.
Now I need another kind of magazine, at least they're small, I'll have room in the magazine organizer somewhere, I guess.

I have heard the problems with the Blaser were solved, but still: there is absolutely no way to go wrong with a Mauser (or derivative thereof like the Winchester M-70, CZ, Ruger M-77, et alia, ad infinitum)!

Yes that's true, but after a lite research I found out that some had problems locking the mechanism and that's no good when your out hunting. And the restrictions here in Norway only let you have 6 hunting rifles. So it's almost a must to have a system rifle.
