Maybe its "Remember Pearl Harbor" and get ready.
You will love that Receiver. Me and my buddy set up a couple M5E2's a couple years ago in 6.5 Creedmoor. They turned out great. Our goal was to kill a milk jug at 1000 yards. Hasn't happened yet but we are still making progress. Only problem is our guns when finished were "heavier than a dead priest". I kidded my buddy that we were going to have to be like in the old Tarzan films.... have porters. He was all for enlisting his grandson, which I thought was a great idea. Unfortunately grandson didn't agree
Today my S&W 6904, 9mm (12 rds. mag.) arrived at the gun store.
Looks as good as this.
The strange thing is that it is an "Israeli Turn-In", and this could explain (?) why over a 5-6 weeks timespan nobody else submitted a bid, although listed by the seller at a reasonable price.
No abrasion from fine dust etc, very nice trigger.
All the dealers were out of stock, had to go to eBay to get one. I've got several hundred sleeves of MiniMags stashed away, and they will be just the ticket.
a couple Redding shell holders
Bore and chamber look good.
I'd never do this with a stock rifle, but hey, Bubba already did it.
It'll be fun to alternate between this and my other Mosins... .
Nice. Given recent developments, I'm sorry I sold my flintlock rifles before moving to Texas. Still have the revolvers, though.
A guy can have an afternoon of fun on the cheap with the bp guns.
A guy wrote book on recreating the Panzerfaust (with a dummy warhead). He uses cannon powder for the propellant.
I've bought nothing in months except books. My research on WW II sniping is done (almost 180k words and 330 pages) and the manuscript awaits acceptance by a publisher.
This one arrived today. Its a Sako 85 laminated stainless varmint in 308 win with a single set trigger as an option. Got mounts etc coming in the next few days. Doubtful ill get to shot it before christmas.
But im really happy about it. Bet it will be a keeper..
Could not remove the slide's roll pin, using a tiny punch and vice, for part of the total prep. for a potential Cerakote.
Luckily the local Armslist guy published his phone number--or I would not have contacted him (am Not a member of the "new" Armslist).
With five 9mm handguns, it's good to increase the ammo reserve for more freq. plinking at steel targets, because internet people say that "The sky is falling!" , Alamo Part 2 ! I know only two people who live in any downtown area--and this city saw no urban looting--certainly Nothing in midtown or suburbs.
Really enjoying the guns acquired last two weeks: 3rd. Gen. (compacts) S&W 908 and 6904.
A panic purchase on Monday. I saw 'em for sale, good price, etc...as I am down to less than 100 rounds.
Now I can load them up to break in my new Kimber .45 Rapide.
My apologies to Jake and the crew at RMR, we will still be doing business! (I hope!)
Added a 1988 Marlin 336 30-30 to the tool cabinet!!
