    Been on a bit of a binge lately - Ruger MKIII Hunter, Glock 45, Savage 110 Precision. 

    I need to get focused back on downsizing.

    Went to my LGS last week (after he had been shut down for almost two weeks) to get another steel target for my back yard range and ended up walking out with the target and a WASR 10 since the price hadn't been jacked up
    Pics or it didn’t happen.

    I'm DONE buying guns.  No more for me.  I can't think of one that appeals to me.  Done!  I get vicarious pleasure from seeing the guns you buy, but for me, the fire gas burned out.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    Haven't fired it yet, the weather here has turned very cold and windy.  My East German Type 2 bayonet won't fit (Seems to be a common issue with the WASR) and I do not know why Century Arms does not include cleaning rods anymore.  I have a Romanian Type 1 bayonet, Romanian leather sling, US Palm pistol grip and a cleaning rod on order and should have them by Friday

    Gun ranges closed down at least for another month.  
    Bought a Sig P320 Pellet gun...weighs similar to a real P320

    At least now I can practice.

    I prefer the term upgrading.  I'm leaving the "common? behind...  I have gotten rid of quite a bit of my trading stock for fewer either higher value firearms or guns that I want more.  No sense in having too many duplicates.  The last time I wanted to take a gun with my for a nice walk in the woods I was standing in front of my safe waaaay too long,,,

    Now you've done it.  Got me all worked up and my CDL is expired and I can't buy a gun until Newsome opens up DMV again!  So I was forced, I say forced, to order an AR Stoner 6.5 Grendal upper today.  Have a Nikon Black 1000 scope in the closet I guess I'll just have to unbox too.  Man, you guys are a great influence!

    @GunNut, you should check out some local Mom-to-Mom sales and see if you can pick up an all-terrain stroller for a decent price.  A little constructive re-purposing and you'd have a nice multi-firearm caddy and would be able to avoid the pain and embarrassment of only having to chose one long gun to take for a walk on any given day...

    HA!!  That would be a funny sales encounter!  

    You're buying this for your grandkids? 

    Nope, you think this pouch here will hold 10 1911 mags?

     :D

    I don't know about that, I enjoy each of my lever guns. Two exactly the same?  What if one breaks

    My problem is that like with women I would like to have them all, but realized a long time ago I can’t (wife made me realize that 😁).  BUT, unlike women, I can cycle them in and out as fast as needed to get close to my goal, and the ones that leave don’t take all my money, they only contribute to getting other guns!

    And, my renewed C&R opens up a whole lot of possibilities I never really understood before!

    I find the easiest way is to simply drag and drop an image file from a folder saved on my computer

    See this screen shot, I had my pointer over the image button, so that its name popped up



    edited to add: When you click on that button, there's a small button that says, "Choose Files" above the box that says, "Image URL"

    When you click on the choose files button, it will open file explorer (on a windows machine) and allow you to browse around until you find the file you're wanting to upload.

    @MFarrell figured it out.  There are about a dozen images posted on the 'Help identify 8mm Mauser' thread

    @Zee, just out of curiosity, your pictures that you post are always beautiful but the sky always looks dark and dreary. Is that a filter or is it always dark and dreary where you live?
