Pac, do you use your guns or are they just for display?

I shoot them all, Kylie, but some more regularly than others. For instance, that K43 was known for having a soft receiver due to the Germans trying to pump them out too quickly towards the end of the war. If it cracks (and they have) the rifle loses probably half its value. Plus they don't make replacement parts if anyting else breaks. The better quality the gun the more I tend to shoot it.

That's a neat shotgun, Taxy. I like the look of vintage shotties with their wood. Too bad you don't have it anymore.
You Canadians are lucky when it comes to military surplus collecting. We easily pay double down here for a lot of Russian stuff because they aren't allowed into the country anymore, since Clinton. Those SVT40's are relatively cheap up there. What we have down here is all we are ever going to get.

I watched that show for a while. I stopped watching this type of show.

I just finished eating lunch; two toasted cheese sandwiches and some split pea soup. Now I am wondering why the games are starting so late today, but at least we don't have an 8:30 night game. I might just find another movie to watch for a couple hours.

Yeah I've seen it. Watched it when it first came on. That guy was quite a bit smaller than he is now .. wonder why !!

It's sometimes a little too disgusting to watch him .. but depending on what the show description says I do watch it occasionally.

Today we're making up the wedding guest lists. Hoping to keep it kind of small. Looking forward to a nice dinner with my son and his fiancee and her family.
