    I had the day off from work today so I decided to make a trip to the range. On my way there I decided to stop at my local gun shop for some ammo and what should I see, but a Inland M1 Carbine with a bright bore and solid stock for $500. Oh be still my beating heart she was a beauty. Only that a quick inspection of my finances led me to the conclusion that she was out of reach. :uhoh:

    So I grudgingly picked up a brick of .22LR and a box of Prvi for the Swede and watched that old girl go home with another loving owner...

    You win some, you loose some.

    You're a bigger man than I. That's why I carry an NRA Rewards card!

    Dang man, sorry - well good deals will come around again. I for one think the recession is far from over and good prices will remain well into 2010, so you may get another chance when the wallet is fuller.

    One can only hope.

    I wish, but not happening when a buyer, cash in hand, was all over it before I had even left the store.
