Do you have a grail gun in the back of your mind?

All my grail guns would be safe queens. I need to get away from pristine condition classics that are out of production. I need to stick with something that won't hurt to get used all the time.

Thinking probably something semi-auto. Have more than enough revos, bolts, and single shots.

The VZ58 is a pretty neat rifle.

I realize that it's single action, but a Blackhawk in .30 Carbine is a hoot to shoot. It's worth having for the muzzle flash alone.

Do you have a Mini 14 or 30?

How about a lifetime membership to a firearms training facility near you.

There is no better investment than in yourself.

Only a soap box hero thinks they know it all and have trained enough.

I spent my youth in the military, and law enforcement into my 40's.

I still get professionally trained on one of my guns, at least twice a year.

Thankfully I have a lifetime membership and do not have to pay the $2,000 per 4 day class each time.

For your birthday, buy additional training for yourself ...

Or buy a ticket to Vegas and I will take you to one of the classes I attend.

This fall will be the m-16 full auto class for me.

No Mini 14 or 30. A 30 wouldn't be bad, but a 14 wouldn't be much different than my AR.

Nothing like that available in my area or even remotely close. Good idea though.
