    I like mine. The only criticism is the magnifying tube. Ya have to stabilize it as others have suggested. Or do like I do and use a jewelry loop and your calibers. I find it pretty spot on.

    I speak from experience. 2013 I had a triple bypass. Was back to work in 6 weeks, spreading fertilizer on shrubs for True Green . I wasn’t exactly 70 and I’m certainly not a doctor and I don’t know what condition his heart is in or anything else...

    Sorry January 27 not the 25th. More than likely Dachau or Buchenwald. Not that the name make a difference.

    That guy must have been in the Russian army. Auschwitz was liberated by the Russians January 25, 1945. Either that or he was confused and it was one of the other concentration camps located in western Germany

    Yeah I always kick myself for not buying one and a Garand back from the CMA when they were cheap. I’d love to have one but certainly not at that price. I’m not much on collectors items I want it as a shooter. Like I said oh well at least I got a...

    Well I figured I give ya an update. I stopped back in to see my buddy long as the pawnshop and I asked him if he decided to sell the M1 carbine would at least give me dibs on it? I told him I probably couldn’t afford what he was going to ask for...

    I went into my local pawn shop today and as the owner know me and knows that I like surplus and military weapons, said he had something to show me. He then placed in my hands a 1943 inland sg stamped, all numbers matching m1 carbine! The bore,...

    My brother Joey spent his time in the army stationed near Bamberg Germany in the late 60s. He was in the 4 armor division, maintenance battalion. Letís just say that Joey was not suited for a life in the military. He didnít exactly follow rules...

    Wow. I I probably shouldnít even try me in on Nas as I have no dog in this fight (I donít shoot 308). With that being said thereís way too many variables to even attempt an answer as far as Iím concerned! What rifle are we even talking about ....

    . Just curious why would anyone want to shoot 380s out of a 9 mm? That is something I would never do that and I would never recommend that being done. In all my years of shooting I have never heard of anyone suggesting that . How would you have...
