Yeah I can understand that type of disappointment. You probably thought something like "what did I sign up for in the first place". At 18 when I signed up I wanted to be G.I. Joe. Hell I wanted to be in thee Army on the Eastern Front. But between the bureaucracy, and the shitbags (senoirs, peers, and subordinates alike) it never really happens. Everyone gets fucked over one way or another in the military. Even 4 star generals.
Honestly shooting my own guns is more fun than any army range I ever did. With the exception of the sniper range with steel targets out to 1000 meters. I don't have to worry about the arms room fucking up my zero on my own stuff. Plus my stuff is nicer than what the army had.
What was your MOS when you were in the army MASH MAN?

When its time to go in:
That place of steel and stone. I pray that you will keep me safe, so I will not walk alone. Help me to do my duty, please watch me on my rounds.
Amongst those perilous places and slamming steel door sounds. God, keep my fellow Officers well and free from harm. Let them know I'll be there too, whenever there's alarm.
Above all when I walk my beat, no matter where I roam. Let me go back whence I came, to family and home

WOW Army, and Navy. You got see 2 sides of the house. I was active duty Army from 1999-2009. I was stationed in Germany then Fort Lewis. I was an 11B Infantryman. I was lucky enough to go to sniper school back in 2006. I did 2 tours in Iraq.
Here is a cool pic. I am the tall one on the left side of the sign.

I likely created worse while I was deployed... and I took pictures of them. They're around on my hard drive somewhere...


That's the problem when your shooting at bad guys. They shoot back!! #-O



I got two wonderful bullet hole scars that agree with that statement. I'm still alive. The guys that shot me aren't.

I have been looking around for a M1903A4 Springfield, for some time. There is just something to be said about it. Ive owned No.4s and Mossins (Before it was cool, yo), however neither has ever held my fancy like an 1903.

One of these days, I need to take some better photos of my SKS I got when I was 14.

It's time to revive this thread for two recent acquisitions. These are VZ-52 rifles, both made in Czechoslovakia in 1955. They fire the 7.62x45 cartridge, which is pretty hard to find since the VZ-52 is the only gun that uses that caliber.

I bought one of these (the one with the blackish marks on the stock) about a month ago; I traded for the other one today.

Note that they are from two different factories, as indicated by the "she" and "AYM" stamps.

Here's another recent purchase, an MAS 49/56 in caliber 7.5 French (aka 7.5x54, aka 7.5 MAS). This is a ten-round semi-auto rifle. It was made somewhere between 1958 and 1960, then refurbished in 1970, then refurbished again in 1986.

It has a grenade launcher attachment, and the grenade-launching sight.

These guns are know for having slam-firing problems, and sure enough it slam-fired on round #19 out of 20 when I took it shooting. That was using commercial ammo, which has softer primers than military ammo. I made a slight modification to the firing pin (flattened the tip), and I will be reloading for it with harder CCI #34 primers so hopefully it won't be an issue in the future.

Steve #1...I'd Just like to say...YOU SUCK!!!...I had to pass on Your newest one as I have been busy and could not get up to Everett to make the trade happen...I ordered a front sight hood and original sling From Liberty Tree Collectors yesterday.


On a better note...Nice to have one from both Arsenals...The AYM are few and far between. They only made a few and were passed over to SHE as their quality was not up to par in quality...Makes that one even more valuable...

The stock on the SHE is a replacement made by a guy named Walter Reily. Look up Walter-Reily Restorations. He does stocks, hand guards, stock bolts, and Sling loops...
