Mark, my neighbor, who lives about a half mile from me. Retired engineer. (railroad) Never shot or had firearms much has come over to the dark side.
Only gun he had was a model 39 S&W NOW look.
1911, of unknown mixture of parts. Shoots very well.
Mini 14, Ruger squared it away
Now a DPMS AR15 from Gunbroker. flat top, 20 inch HBAR.
Ordered a XDM from gunshop 9MM.
I suggested a Buckmark or Ruger MKIII, now he's hunting one.
Only problem he has is finding enough ammo to shoot all the time.
Man has it BAD.
