I can see I still have (3) Swedish Mausers:
1894 Gustafs ask $100 paid $80 about 5 years ago. I have never shot it.
It looks very sporterized.
1896 Gustafs ask $115 paid $100 about 10 years ago. I bent the bolt, drilled and tapped the receiver. I have sighted it in, but I never overloaded it.
1938 Husqvarna ask $150 paid $135 about 5 years ago.
I have never shot it.
The barreled action looks like it may have never been shot. The stock does not look new.
I also have a Husqvarna M1907 9x20 pistol paid $123, that someone bushed to 9x17mm ... Oi, I have really overloaded that one plenty.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
