    Meet my buddy. (Hello buddy.)
    Buddy hasn't shot guns in a long time, the last gun buddy shot was a .22. I think we can help cure this ailment! :evil:

    We went to the range and warmed up with .22s. I took my new romanian, buddy brought a marlin repeater that looks like an M1 carbine and a JC Higgins single shot, that little gun was a lot of fun! About 800 rounds later, we moved onto the hard stuff.
    And we took some pix! :D

    His first venture into the centerfire zone was the sks.
    "Hey buddy, don't touch that gas tube on the top, its real hot!"
    "You mean this one?" *sizzle*

    [​IMG]
    For some reason, buddy seemed attatched to my mosin at the shoulder! He went through more than 60 rounds!


    I also got to try my new K31, crimany! That sucker kicks worse than the nagant! I also love *drool* my Ruger 77 in .22-250! But enough of my likes and dislikes, I took these pics just because I knew that jobu07 would harass me if I didn't. Feast thy ravenous eyes! :neener:

    I'm pretty sure that i got this one during full recoil. Pretty cool, eh?

    I like having a matching bayo for the K31! :D

    All in all, a fun, productive and hot day. (note to self: wear sunscreen!)

    Beautiful! :p But, how come you didn't get a shot of your buddy doing a bayonette charge on the target ;) Tisk tisk.
    But I do love seeing that bayo affixed to the M39. It doesn't look canted at an angle like your other photos, did ya fiddle with it some?

    Cool pics, excellent rifles.

    Where did you find that M-39 Bayonet!? Those things are hard to come by.

    You got a matching bayo for your K31? Very, very nice! How did you come into that?

    Jobu07, yet again I'm one step ahead of you. I woulda posted this more quickly but I've been working all day. :neener:

    Cosmo, that bayonet is a ChiCom knockoff I got through interordnance . I paid fifty + S&H, its fair quality wise but there used to be a smith/knife maker in a small town south of wichita, I may take it to him to use as a template for something better.

    Wayne, I think I phrased that wrong. As much as I wish it was, that isn't the numerical equivalent for my rifle. I meant the bayo that went with the gun. :eek:

    I'm still impressed. I read that the bayos cost as much as the gun, if not more.
