Hello everyone. My name is Brian and I live in Louisiana. I am very new to the rifle collecting world. In fact, I haven't fired a weapon since ROTC in college thirteen years ago! Ever since I was a small kid, I've been interested in the history of World War II. Recently, I've become more interested in the weapons of that war. I look forward to exploring these forums to learn, learn, and learn. I'm currently waiting for my C&R license, and will soon join the NRA. My collecting goals at the moment are modest. I would like to get what I call the "big 4" - the main issue rifles of the U.S., Soviet Union, Germany, and the British Commonwealth of World War II. I will have to scrimp and save for each rifle, therefore I will obtain a Mosin Nagant 91/30 first, followed by either an Enfield No. 4 Mk I or the Mauser K98, and eventually an M1 Garand. I look forward to hanging out here.
