As soon as I wrapped my hand around the wrist of that beautiful double, saw the swirls of the faded case hardening, the extricate engravings along the receiver, tang, trigger guard, and rib... then I threw it to my shoulder where my cheek fell right along the stock like that's just where the gun was meant to be, in prefect alignment with the universe. I looked the dealer in the eye, and said, "thanks for holding MY gun for me. I'm here to sign her release papers."

It took less than ten minutes. I also got a red bull.
Trip, you know you can't tell a story like that and keep us in suspense!

we need pictures man!

I posted pictures way back when I got it! And for some reason, it seems like I have a one pic a day limit or something, I can't seem to get along with the mobile app at all.

I'll see what I can do.

Move.
I would love to move.
Maybe Arizona or Nevada.
But my age and health keep me here.
Have to stay within a certain range of a Kaiser facility.
And my Son lives a few miles down the road.
And my part of this area is not too bad.
You young'uns know how us old farts like to complain.
And if I left calif. one less voter to vote against boxer & Feinstein & brown & & &

Pretty sure I got one when I signed up as supporting member. PM me an address and I'll send you mine. (I don't have a dedicated gun storage and handling area like 3T does.) Or maybe Notdku can send you one!

Strangely enough the first time one of my best friends shot his AK on the range, he yelled "Allah Akbar", and started firing, everyone on the range was looking at him needless to say! (this was in the 1990's)
