Hey man!!

Turn the lights down low, sit back in an easy chair and hold that Enfield up to your chest. Close your eyes and clear your mind.

You;ll feel it come alive. You'll smell cordite and sweat, you'll feel the heat of the Indian sun on your neck, and if you listen real hard, you'll hear the faint skirl of distant bagpipes playing the quick step.

I've been there!

Fear not. When assault weapons are banned, and the only thing we can posess are obsolete bolt action rifles, the price of poker will go up. Get 'em while you can get 'em cheap.

Nice rifle

Very nice Enfield. Sorry about your getten bit by the milsurp bug.

Say, ever seen a Swiss K-31? Straight pull bolt action, great long range round- and the bayonets- well, all I'm saying is, if you want a REAL Swiss Army Knife.....

And the little carcanos are still fairly cheap- and the Mausers, Arisakas, Springfields, Garands, the carbines are so cute....



It's too late for me- save yourself!

C3, I have been eyballing the Steyr 95-34 or M1895 carbines. I am too much of a cheap skate to not lust after a $99.00 rifle. Are you familiar with them?

Your not a cheapskate. You are a conservator of history. Yeh, that's right, tell your wife that you are a conservator of history! Yeh, that'll work

I have recently had this desire for curried haggis. Must be a sign!

I almost bought a Swedish semi-auto Ljungman Ag m/42. Maybe next time!

My wife doesn't care about conserving or history. She only wants to know if she will get her money back when I croak and she goes to Gunbroker. So far I have convinced her that will work.

The 1895 is sturdy, FAST, extractors can be fragile. Just remember that they do NOT shoot the standard 8mm Mauser catridge. And finding the rimmed round they DO shoot can be...... challenging.
