One of the things I have always found is that selling a firearm that you really like always ends up in a state of regret. However, if you sell a firearm for the purpose of acquiring another firearm in its place that you really "want," then losing the one that you really like is not too bad as long as you get more for it or at least as much as you paid for it or have in it. I think "really want" may overcome regret of parting with "really like." Do I make sense or do I sound idiotic? I was told by someone that I was unamerican, but hell, ain't the Remington 700 american? Well, anyway I parted with M1 Garand Winchester yesterday for $1000 and I will part with a Springfield M1 Garand and M1A #1. Big boy toys are not cheap. I have acquired a new Remington M700 5R Military Spec in .300 Winchester Magnum and another one yesterday in .223 Remington and before it is all over with I'll have one in .308 Winchester. The mil spec M700 5R is all stainless with heavy barrel and fully adjustable trigger with the HS Precision black fiber stock free floated and bedded. I realize now that I went over the edge on military rifles, but I think that keeping two M1 Garands, two M1As and two M1903s should be enough of the military cadry. I still must consider the AR 15 because that is one I just can't build up a love for. I think I have enough high capacity autoloaders to hold the zombies off. The problem with the autoloaders is that they are not nearly as accurate as the M700 bolt gun and also I have a tendency to go through ammo at a rapid pace. I have learned to slow down the burning of ammo considerably with the use of the bolt gun especially loading it one round at the time. The Kimber M82 Match .22 taught me that there is a better and more sensible way to burn ammo--slow and sure.
