    Nice pistols!

    Looks  that strap might be for keeping the belt from sagging when that long tube Luger is holstered on? Probly has a name, but I don't know it.

    Went to an auction today & picked up a few things .
    It was nice to get out of the shop for a day even at - 9

    I'm REALLY finding it difficult to like you right now... ;)

    I thought you might like that Zorba .
    It is a 1917 German Luger with cleaning kit holster & 3 mags .
    I think the barrel is 7"
    No clip on stock for it ...... yet .

    I still hate you. ;)

    I was looking online. I couldnt find an example like that. It looks like it fits though.
  • Old RonOld Ron Senior Member Posts: 4,292 Senior Member
    As long as it fits it will be  there for now .
    Never planned to wear it anyway .
    At least this summer I will be able to go shoot every so often & relax a bit .
    Thinning out the inventory a bit too .
    Good time to drop some with prices this crazy ...... can always buy more later if needed .
    Never thought I would see the day ammo. would be this nuts . Good thing I have enough to last through it all & not join in the chase .

    Finished up the 45 project this a.m.
    It didn't turn out bad for a beginner .

    Looks pretty good Ron. Good thing you has something to occupy your time buried in snow out there.
  • earlyagainearlyagain Posts: 7,129 Senior Member
    My time's occupied here too. As long as the shovel don't break. :/

    Nice pistol Ron!
    You could hang out a shingle. At least until customers projects got lost among the empire....

    Thanks guys ..... it is fun stuff to mess with .
    The snow here is finally starting to melt but can change quick this time of year .
    The treasures are looking a lot better now than they did last summer here at shop 1 .   :p
    I take way to long to do projects to ever try to make money at it early . Not to mention I wouldn't respond well to people pushing at me to get things done .
    A few more months stuck inside & then I'll be off to the west shops to get work done there . Flip flops will be all over that place !
    I invited a few guys to stop by this summer & do some shooting & trading at shop 4 . Hope I can get that ready for them . I have a lot to do yet out there but it would be nice to take some time to play a bit too .

    The snow was all gone ...... boom 6" new stuff .
    Spent yesterday getting tax things to my accountant but did get a pistol out to tear down & clean . It was a nice way to get my mind off taxes ....... this year will be tough to deal with .
    Last year I managed to sell off 80 long guns & only bought around 30 . So the inventory is getting better .
    When these P9R 9mm were new I bought 5 of them because the price was right . I thought I sold 4 & just kept the new one ...... nope had a second one tucked away . I looked up the asking prices of these & about fell out of my chair . Crazy stuff .

    Nice!
    I got my Fed refund yesterday. Had to use electromagnification to see the amount......... :/

  • Old RonOld Ron Senior Member Posts: 4,292 Senior Member
    At least you got some back early ....... what I had to pay in was obscene .
    Buy bonds all your life ....... sit on them until they bring no interest ...... cash them out ....... then they take back almost all you made . Yep great system there . With the cost of everything going up every day ...... that money won't last long .

    Single digit to zero interest rates, direct government stimulus payments to citizens. Sure seems like an unstable economy to me. 
  • Old RonOld Ron Senior Member Posts: 4,292 Senior Member
    It is a tough one early .
    Not much a guy can do about it . I look for deals all the time & try to save where I can . Would hate to be 25 & dealing with this crap .
    Am already spending time at shop 4 cleaning & getting lumber up that I bought last year. Will keep at it until I run out . Then wait until the prices go back down ...... if they ever do .
    Still have a summers work to do out there without spending much money . The down trees have been across my shooting lane 2 years now so probably should clean them up a bit too .
    My 4 post hoist should be in next month so will need to run north to get that & save the $700 shipping cost . It will be around 12 hours on the road but worth it to save that much . Will see how the beast handles a 22' trailer & the lift on it .
    Was cleaning out a closet in the rescue room & found a folding stock . No idea what went on it but finally figured out a Remingtion 700 action did . Then hunted the barrel pile & found a 7mm & a 22 -250 that would fit it . I think I will go with the 7mm because I already have 2 22-250s . May look for a long wood stock for it too . It will go in the projects to do line for another time .

    Wow! I havnt' ever seen a bolt action folder. If its 7mm-08 that would be slicker than grease on glass.

    McDonald's coffee and a box a crackers should make them twelve hours go by....
