    Next will be here on Monday.  This C&R is a dangerous business, the good news is it's being funded by departing safe queens so wife can't say much about it.

    My latest firearm acquisitions:

    A pair of Finn M39 Mosin-Nagant rifles to share a safe with my 91-30 that I posted at the start of this thread, though none of my Mosins will be safe queens!




    Here is the reason why I went for (and was pretty excited about getting) a pair:


    It's not often you come across consecutive serial number milsurps!

    That is a cool and I’m sure, a very unique find!! Need a pristine M-44 to go with the collection? Or perhaps an equally pristine Finnish capture 91-30?

    I never have. I bought so much milsurp ammo when I got mine I'll never run out.

    Yeah, it is not like it is expensive ammo, I would like to shoot a whitetail with it though, and the stuff I have is for light Russian armor :)

    I have a couple boxes of Barnaul Russian ammo that is a soft point 150ish grain bullet.
    I suspect something similar can still be found. If not let me know, I'll give you a box when I find it again.

    Thanks, I have Fleet Farm nearby, they always seem to have some HP in stock.

    This one, a Star BM 9.  I replaced the grips, removed the magazine safety, and now it's easier to hold and has a really good trigger.  Accurate and reliable so far.  I paid the extra $20 for hand select and got a really nice one made in 76, but apparently not abused by a Spanish Policeman.  Total $220 for pistol, $25 for the grips.

    My most recent? Actually it would be my new to my pawn shop rescue, the 721 Remington. But I picked up my Glock 43 afterwards. However, I ordered the Glock before I found the Remington 721 tMHS in the pawn shop. Then there's my Mauser that MHS sold me the short chambered 7x57 barrel that's built on a Zastava Charles Daly 98 action that I've been working on for three and a half years. I included it because I just finished it like Sunday. So take your pick. They all hit me within a week or two but I'm in love with all three.

    I was looking for a good and durable rifle these days to add to my growing collection. Someone recommend the Weatherby rifle. Thankfully I found it super quickly and for a good price too! :D a life saver for sure. Cannot wait to test it out.

    What Weatherby did you get?  Caliber?

    My most recent purchase was a non-designated, Rem 700 SA barreled action, 1-8 twist, chambered in 6.5 Creed.
    Chris chopped the barrel, new crown, Harrell brake, and one of Jim Rockwell's rear-grip laminated stocks.  One of our loaner guns for WY-SHOT.
    Will shoot it next week, with a number of other specialty pistols that have had scopes get switched around.

    I'm about to start liberating some safe queens and acquire a Glock 34 Gen 5 MOS. No real need for it (especially running a dot), but I keep coming back to it. 

    Besides that I'm really focusing on hunting gear. Next up is a Mystery Ranch Metcalf pack, and I hope to acquire a good set of 12x50 or so binos later this summer.

    Doing inventory I realized I find myself without a sporter weigh .308.  Not sure how that happened...

    I’ll be starting to keep an eye out for a Remington Model 7.  Always wanted one and I have a metric ton of .308 hunting ammo so I need something to shoot it out of...
