that was....2009 i think? maybe 2010. i was going to flight school then and dropping 70K ok my training put a huge damper on my toy fund.
and yes i do love all my handguns, AK,AR, ect. but the rifles i hunt with the most were born from Mr. Mauser's 98 design. My 1936 S/42 K98 is one of my most prized possessions. i like it so much i bought another as a shooter due to the collector value of the pre war rifle
then when i figured out how collectible my next one was (it was made by jewish internment slaves) i dont really want to take it out and shoot either! its especially awesome because it has shrapnel in the stock from the war!
