  1. I've been out shooting my M1 Garand a lot lately. The weather has been absolutely beautiful here in Tampa, so I've been taking advantage of it. Thank god I had bought a ****load of .30-06 M2 Ball at a great price right before the ammo situation went dire. I'm starting to focus my WW2 collection more on US C&R weapons right now. I currently have a Springfield M1903A4 sniper rifle (1943), an HRA M1 Garand (1954), and a Springfield M1 Garand (1942). Next on the list will be an M1 Carbine.

    This is the M1 I currently use as a "shooter." It's all parts matching/period correct(except the stock which I switched out to try a new reproduction) from 1954. It definitely takes some practice to get good with the M1, but once you do, it's an absolutely amazing rifle. They are hands-down the favorite guns in my collection. It's always a riot to see all the heads turn on the firing line when they hear the famous "ping" of an ejected M1 enbloc clip hit the ground.

    Here she is:

    I hope you do as well, bro. Florida has done a good job with their CCW laws, so I'm happy to say the least. They're now looking to bring in a new "open carry" law. I think that's good and should already by on the books, but I still prefer to carry concealed if I have the choice.

    Why would you need both? Don't Utah and Florida cross over? I know mine from ms is good in both Florida and Utah. Its a pitch to buy a handgun in Desseret man lol. You would think a state that is so gun friendly on so many levels would make it a little easier to obtain one but they don't. Its terrible lol

    Since I have Non-Resident Permits I don't always get the same states as Resident Permits. I had the Utah Permit but Florida doesn't accept Non-Resident Utah Permits, but accepts Resident Utah Permits. So I had to get the Non-Resident Florida Permit so I could carry in Florida on the family trips there to Disney.

    The cost of the Utah CCW permit is: $51.00 plus what ever the class costs.
    And the Florida CCW permit cost is: $112.00 plus what ever the class costs.

    But I can carry in basically any state I travel to, well except my state I live in.

    I got rid of my Kimber 1911 and bought this along with a Glock 23 Gen4. What an amazing gun for the price. It's about half the price of the Kimber, and shoots just as good or better. She's definitely a keeper.

    I'm glad you like it. I've been interested in those too. I don't currently own a 1911, but I love them. I've heard a lot of crap about Kimber. Good thing I do my research. Sounds like Ruger knocked it out of the park with this gun.

    Out of all the 1911's that I've owned over the years, this Ruger SR1911 is definitely my favorite. Accurate, Reliable, and a damn good looking gun for the price. You would enjoy this Ruger, IC.

    I will never buy another Kimber again. The problem certainly wasn't the accuracy (it was an absolute tac-driver when it functioned well), but it proved to be unreliable over the years. It had WAY too many malfunctions; which continued even after doing everything possible to improve reliability (changing springs, polishing, new parts, etc.) Kimber's do have very tight tolerances, but it is ridiculous to pay 14-1500 dollars for a 1911 that was absolutely unreliable. Now one could say, "Well, you just got a lemon." There have been way too many complaints in the same regard over the years. The gun forums are full of them. It seems you either love Kimber or hate them. I have 2 buddies as well that had similar issues with theirs and eventually gave up on them.

    I do plan on getting either an Ed Brown, Wilson Combat, or Dan Wesson 1911 though at some point.

    Have you been stocking up on ammo, IC?

    When I can catch the deals I have. The main trouble I've had is finding everything in one spot. It seems the minimum shipping charge for ammo is around $12, and I've payed up to $50 for shipping 2k rounds before, but that ammo was a great price in this market, so I was happy to pay it. Aim Surplus has been my main go-to site for ammo. Thus far I've got:

    ~ 4500 rds of 7.62x39
    ~ 1500 rds of 223/5.56
    ~ 1k rds of 9mm
    ~1k rds of 40sw
    ~ 4500 rds 22lr
    ~200 rds 12ga 00bk
    ~ 75 rds 12ga slugs
    ~300 rds bird shot

    As for mags:

    15 steel surplus and 1 Bulgarian Circle 10 in 7.62x39 (30rd)
    8 Bulgarian Circle 10 in 5.56/223 (30rd)
    2 Tapco Galil/Golani (30rd)
    5 FNP-40 (14rd)
    4 CW9 (7rd)

    Sitting far better than most, so I'm pretty happy. It's never enough though. I almost cried when I shot 100rds at the range the other day.

    Do you have a link outside of FB? No FB here.

    And Trauma, to add, I've been dying to get my hands on a Mosin Nagant carbine, but the thought of stocking another caliber makes my head hurt. - Not to mention the DSA FAL I've been eyeballing; mags, ammo, etc...GAH! I wish I got into this stuff a long time ago. Damn my young ignorance.

    Nope, sorry. Just a FB page. I've learned something about paracord gear - it's popular. I'm forcibly keeping myself small to avoid getting overwhelmed. I thought about doing a website, but then I'd have to declare it an official business and taxes and F U Uncle Sam, so... yeah, just on FB. However, if you are interested in anything in particular, I can always send pics and whatnot to ya via email. PM me here for info. I do bracelets of many types, dog collars, a slew of different gun slings, and probably just about anything else you can think of.

    Nice! Ammo is pure freakin' gold at this point. You've definitely acquired a nice little stockpile. Keep adding to it my friend. There are definitely some decent deals out there if you know where to look and happen to be near the computer when they are posted. AIM surplus is definitely one to watch; along with SGAmmo. I've bought at least 75% of my ammo from them.

    I've now effectively taken over 1/2 of our master bedroom walk-in closet that is filled with nothing but guns, ammo, and everything tactical... haha!

    She's gonna kill me...

    You make some good stuff indeed my friend. I bought a few paracord bracelets from Tim a while back, and I get compliments on them all the time. Next....up.....a rifle sling big T!

    You've been fairly quiet on FB lately. It's starting to scare me...

    I hear ya, buddy. There have actually been an influx of Mosin M44 carbines over the last few months. They are definitely going up in price as well. The 7.62x54R round is a good one to stockpile. There is still a ****load of surplus still coming into the country (many years worth left), and until 6 months ago, it was very economical...it still is, but the price is slowly rising. I promise you that you'll absolutely love the Mosin M44. The freakin' fireball is always a talking point at the range; that and it's freakin' LOUD as hell. Shooting these things from the bench will definitely make you remember it the next day...lol.

    Me? Quiet? Well shyt, negro, you must not be paying attention!! lol I'm on there every single day at work, and then via mobile the rest of the day. HA!!

    Like the vid of the Nagant blasts, too, by the by. I was searching for one recently, and wouldn't you know it, now I can't find one in my local haunts! No big, money isn't there now, but maybe sometime. I still want to get a big'un and put that Archangel stock on it. It'd look bad-azz with a tripod and a cord sling on my show tables!!!

    My FB has been quirky as fukc lately, so that's probably why. I knew it wasn't normal to not see a classic "at work" Tim post. Ha!

    According to a few sources, there is going to be a huge influx of the carbines here this year. Molot from Russia is now refinishing many of the stockpiled Mosin's that were originally slated for destruction in Russia; and are now selling them/exporting to the United States; and of course every importer and their mother is jumping all over them. I'm positive when you have the bones to drop on one they will be around. If not hit me up, we'll get you one.

    I meant to hit you up for the name of that stock. It's bad azz my friend! My need to have a Florida Mosin shoot in the near future.

    Yeah, I know the name. They're a division of ProMag. (We watch a lot of the same pages, remember? lol) I do want a long barrell, though. If nothing else, just for the aesthetics. My only wish is that I could put a scope on that puppy. That'd complete it. I'm not a great shot, but I greatly prefer a scoped rifle. We shall see!

  24. That's pretty sick, but say the Nagant is $150, add in $200 for that stock, at least 10 mags, and you're up to $550; over half way to a mil-spec Rem 700. Add in the fact that it's ProMag and I have serious doubts.

    I'd be perfectly happy with the M44 as is. I only hope I can find them at decent prices when I decide to buy. It's all going up up up.

    You can definitely scope that bad boy if you wanted too. I know that a reproduction PE sniper scope (Accumounts.com) would work with that furniture stock. You'd have to drill and tap the receiver, but it would definitely work. In essence, you'd be making a very modernized M91/30 PE sniper rifle! I'm in!
