Love the thread, lots of great pics and information on such a wide-diversity of guns. Yet I might have to unsubscribe as my seemingly abysmal discipline feels as though it's on the verge of collapse . Maybe I could justify an immediate purchase as an 'Welcome Fall Gun, a pre-election "necessity”, an early Christmas Gift, my last gun for a while’ etc..

Seriously though, enjoying the thread .

I picked up a Rossi Rio Grande 45-70 while shopping for a Marlin but the two I looked at where pretty rough compared to the RG. I'm glad I did too considering the RG is the cleanest machined gun I've owned regardless of maker and smooth as silk. Fit and finish was also perfect while the Marlins one stainless and one blue both had thin spots in the blued finish or marks in the stainless and nether the wood fit well. I also got the Rossi for just about half the price of either of the Marlins. I guess it is true what I heard has happened since Remington has taken over Marlin. I posted a picture here at http://www.thehighroad.org/showthrea...=645818&page=2 post #28. Not a great picture but then I'm also not a good photographer either. Oh and the scope is a Bushnell Banner Dusk to Dawn 1.5-4.5x32mm mounted on Weaver Quad mount medium mounts.

Ruger, 22 single action convertible, 6.5 in brl, made mid 80s. Blued with rosewood grips.
Still in original box, looks brand new. Jeez I have wanted one of these for years but it seems there was always a good deal on something else.

Got my first AR yesterday after 20 some-odd years of shooting. I've fired plenty , but never owned one. I'm a pistol guy generally, and into AK pattern rifles if any rifles at all.
The right time came up though , so now I've joined the AR club too.

Its a Troy Defense 5.56 Carbine.

NIB 547 3 inch #16D0XXX product code 5470013021
In the box with everything plus a speed loader.
I was not looking at the time and even forgot I had investigated the 9MM in the past.
Now the problem comes into play.
To shoot or not to shoot that is the question?
I think it will be next to my unfired Python in the safe.
I have a 66 2 1/2" which is going to serve the shooting urge just fine and if not then a 686 four inch.
So I reckon it will be like money in the bank. Well better really.

Remington Model 1900 my Dad gave me, made between late 1900, early 1901. A few days prior, I bough a NIB Beretta Model 92A1.

Winchester Model 290 .22 long-rifle. Had a Model 190 back in the 70's, and gave it to my son. Been looking for another that didn't appear to have been sitting at the back door for 30 years. Stock is good, and finish is about 98%. Price was right, and it came home.

Ha ha, here's one to egg you on a little further.

True, but the good news is there is still tons of good old Marlin 336s out there. Got this one last week at a Pawn Shop in near new condition for $350. Made in 1957 (no crossbolt safety, which is what I was looking for), it has a factory Williams rear peep sight. Fantastic. Action was a little stiff at first, but it is quickly becoming butter smooth. I don't think this one was fired much at all. Love the balance and pointability of this old 30-30. I see why everyone likes these fine guns so much.









'Course, tomorrow I'm picking up my son's Christmas gift. Orderd him a Crickett from Bud's, so I'll have to post pictures of that when it arrives.
