Walked into the club on Sunday and the ffl comes over to me and asks If I'd be interested in a deal.
What's the deal?
I have an enfield that I can't sell as it is. Any interest?
I Love projects.
So he pulls out this enfield. Stock looks like it was in WWI. Rear sight is gone and he says he can't find a scope that will fit the mount. I do a quick function test and throw a light down the spotless bore.
OK you have my interest. What's the deal?
I payed $250 plus tax and won't sell it to anyone else. Give me $100 and it is yours.
I'll take it right now.
I'm closing up you can't have it today.
OK well I'm going to Maine next week so I'll buy it in 2 weeks then.
Pay for it before Christmas and it's yours. I can't/won't sell it to anyone else.
So I was gonna wait till I got it to say anything but I'm too excited.
A rear sight will cost me about $30 delivered. I might reblue it and refinish the stock. Good deal eh?
I don't need No stinking signature.

Clean it up, but don't refinish it. Leave it an original old war horse.
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost
