    To my thought, it's not GunBroker -- just the person exploiting them -- as well as robbing from you. Some years back my older son sold a guitar on eBay, and buyer demanded his money back due to his claim of guitar being mis-represented. We...

    I always smile and breath a sigh of relief when "stuff" like this occurs. So happy you were 95% observant, and 5% lucky :). I always decap my brass before further processing, as wet pin tumbling seems to clean all the crud from primer pockets,...

    En route to a fishing trip a few years ago, I chanced upon a bareley-used-almost new CZ 455 Varmint at a Gander Mountain store, and it followed me out. I put a Weaver Rim-fire Classic 3-9x x 32 scope on it, and it is bar none, to me, the BEST .22...

    Local newspapers indicated Remington Arms is in debt over $950,000,000, and may be closing. With 850-950 employees, this would be devastating to the region -- for the employees, their families, and "support" businesses -- ranging from car dealers,...
