    Ok, so I'm back home for Memorial Day weekend and my friend Alex is here from Costa Rica. He's never shot guns before so my neighbor invites us over. Here's half of his collection. He has another safe that's just as full :o

    Yeah. My parents live like 7 miles out of town. He lives like half a mile away but we he's the closest person so we consider him and his wife our neighbors. He's seriously the nicest guy I have ever met.

    Quick question, Do you realize Thompson Machine guns are currently selling for $30,000 and M-16's are going for $16,000.

    You sir are a very lucky person to have this experiance.

    Yeah I know I'm lucky, this is the second time I've gotten to go through his collection and shoot whichever ones I want :hs: He even supplies the ammunition.

    I havn't asked him yet how he's aquired them but I have a feeling he's had most of his guns for a very long time and has either been given them or bought them when they were much more inexpensive.

    He has a whole room dedicated to reloading. I need to ask him if he can teach me how to do it. I would like to start reloading 7.62x39 because it's hard to find right now.

    That's one of the few calibers that really isn't worth reloading cost wise :o
