    I call a spot in the time machine :)

    8mm, .308, and 7.62x39 will all belong to me.

    My dad said he had a Kraig when he was younger but his mom gave it away after he moved out. Fortunately we got his grandpa's .22 bolt action although I wish we still had the Kraig.

    What is your opinion on shooting surplus ammo....for a new rifle.

    I just got a 700 SPS in .308. New .308 is costly. What is your opinion on shooting surplus stuff? I need a bit of consistency and accuracy in the ammo since I eventually want to shoot 300+ yards. But for now, itll be shot at the 100yd range.

    Thanks. :o

    $50 SKS's? I hate to date myself, but when I bought my first SKS, they were $79 a piece EVERYWHERE, I had 3. And then I picked up a case of surplus ammo (1k rounds) for $69.99.

    That same year I bought a Mak 90 for $189.

    $50 chicom sks's were before my time but my uncle says he paid $100 for his at a gunshow with a case of yellow box norinco ammo. I think I paid $120 for my chicom when I bought it several years ago, the ammo was under $80 a case then at local gun store. I did get in on the $79 yugos though.

    And back then, they came with everything. Sling, kit, bayo, rocket launcher doo dad.

    I also remember being at my moms place and cleaning off all the cosmo in our bath tub, and "forgetting" to clean it up. LOL , I got chewed out, and it freaking stunk after that taking a shower.

    No, not exactly. You reflect on the past, and what it does for me anyways. Tells me, no matter what, the time to buy is always "now".

    Fast forward to 30 years from now. Think of how the newbs of the future will be oogling over the stuff we have now.


    "zooomg, an M1A1 tanker for only $1500, I would have bought 5 at that price!!!!"
