SKS

Bought an SKS yesterday at Big5 went in to get some cleaning patches and saw a guy looking at it and I wanted it, but I resisted and went home, when I got home I told the wife about it and she said "you already have allot of guns" I told her it was 150.00 off the original price, and she said "HOW MANY MORE GUNS ARE YOU GOING BUY" I said 2 or 3 I also want a K31. I went down and picked the best one out of 3, nice gun. The only thing I got is the serial # on the receipt 5966120xx does anyone know the year? I have to wait 10 days. I'll pick up ammo at the gun show saturday.

The '5966' part of the serial number is probably the model (M59/66). The actual rifle serial number will be a single letter followed by most likely six numbers. Check http://www.yooperj.com/SKS-24.htm for a year-by-year breakdown.

The OP was obviously talking about purchases for this year. Or this month.

Your answer should have been: "As many as I want."

The gun limit question...ended!!!

Simple, I told her to get all the purses, shoes, misc. decor item, never used cook wear, and all other assorted stuff she has purchased from QVC out. Giver me the receipts to show what she paid for it. Then tell me honestly what she thinks she can sell all the crap for in a garage sale. The only place this kind of stuff can be sold.

Then I showed her the receipts of just a few of my guns, and showed her what I can sell them for now. 2 Yugo SKS rifles. $89.99 and $119.99 plus about $20 shipping. Now around $300 each!!! French MAS 36 $41.00 shipped to my door...Now selling around $150. K31.$119 plus shipping, Now around the $200+ mark. Don't know if I got much past those when she walked away, and I haven't heard a peep from here about my guns since.
Now, if you really want to start adding up the collection, get a C&R FFL, and join the fun!!!

BTW, in what socialist utopia do you live that you have to wait 10 days?

You turn the table on her and reply "and how much more cloths are you going to buy".
