    I appologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong section.

    I own and frequently use several curio and relics eligable weapons, mostly older long guns used for target shooting and hunting. Guess I am just curious as to how many others do the same or, am I just an odd ball?

    I use my 1916 spanish short rifle (7X57) or the 1903 springfield mark 1 for big game. mossberg 185d or 185ka, kessler model 30C, or stevens springfield double for small game. and a mossberg 151m or winchester 67 for target on a regular basis. Sorry about the lack of pictures, I have yet to take family photos;). Post pictures, tell us what you use and what it's used for. Let's find out who else enjoys "oldies".:)

    I would say most of us with old guns shoot them, unless the gun is unsafe to do so.
    I actually(sadly) modified an m24/47 to use a scope.... not my brightest decision but live and learn i guess,
    I also own 2 remington 22s, one, a 510 from like 1943, and the 511, from like 55, and a Finnish M39 witha hex reciever, which I have yet to get to fire.

    Gee- lemme see now- a K31, about a dozen Mossies (44 US, 51Ms, 46bs, 151Ks, 142, 152s) Mausers, Enfields, M/Ns, SKSs, 03A3, Marlin 39As- Naw, I never shoot any of that old stuff.

    Before 9 AM. :p

    Are you kidding? The UPS guy is still not speaking to me after my last ammo order! He is just being snide- I heard his hernia is healing quite nicely.....

    Half the fun in collecting older guns is SHOOTING THEM!!!

    IMHO Old guns are like old cars and MEANT to be driven!

    as far as the UPS guy...hes scared of me (kinda like the rest of the natives here in the ghetto) he kinda drops my package at the door, knocks and RUNS and takes off tires all a squeal....

    I reckon I have about 300 pounds of C&Rs, I was just taking a quick break after breakfast; now I am trying to decide which one(s) to take to the range.

    I thoroughly enjoy shooting my Mosin Nagant M91/30, Arisaka, Springfield Trapdoor 1884 model, and Remington Sportsman 58. I also enjoy shooting blackpowder firearms as much as my C&R firearms.
