Wait, where in Missouri?

Sept 7-8 is not a good time for me. Besides, it's a 6-hour drive for me.

I wouldn't do the claim calibers thing for a few reasons.

1) not everyone has a ton of different calibers to choose from, so if a lot of the common calibers are claimed, their choices could become very limited.

2) not every gun that shoots the same caliber is the same. For example, an 1903 Springfield, M1 Garand, M1917 Enfield, and Remington 700 are all different even know they all shoot 30-06.

3) more guns equal more fun.

Just my view on it.

Believe it or not, I don't have one yet.

That is something I have been wanting to fix, but haven't gotten around to yet.

I almost bought a Marlin model 60 off gunbroker a while back for $100. I made the mistake of waiting to think about it (which took somewhere between 15-30 min). Someone bought it as I was getting ready to buy it. I still kick myself in the ass for that one. I should have just bought it. It looked almost new too.
