    Saw a Steyr M95 for $84.95 at SOG, had to get it. I knew getting this C&R was trouble!:34:

    Well, considering my friend now eats Ramen most of the time in order to save enough to pay for new C&R rifles and pistols and ammunition... I think I know :-D

    Potatoes and milk gravy for me.:09:

    Just found out a little hitch in getting my incentive payment.

    A. Taxpayers who use Refund Anticipation Loans (RALs) or enter into any other loans or financial agreements with a tax professional, such as agreeing to have return preparation fees deducted from their refunds, cannot receive their stimulus payments by direct deposit and instead will get paper checks based on the paper check distribution schedule.

    I did use another financial institution to pay for my tax prep charges. Looks like I have to wait for June 13th to get a check. Now a K98 and an SKS!

    Well that was a first. Phone rang and I got a recorded message from UPS that I have a package being delivered tomorrow from Southern Ohio Gun, and somebody over 21 had to sign for it. I can only hope my Lee dies for 8X56R also arrive tomorrow!

    Well it got here today. Could not for the life of me get the bolt out, and wasn't sure if there was some trick to it. No trick, the thing was almost welded shut by the cosmoline. But once I did get it out by brute force the old boiling water trick got her clean enough to start a thorough cleaning. Bore looks shiny and the lands look sharp. But my reloading dies aren't here yet and I have no ammo. Can't wait to get her to the range.

  18. I am still waiting for my renewal to come through. I sent in the paperwork in January or February and the license expired April 1. The BATF sent me a letter after I called about the license status and the letter extends the validity of the last license until the new one finally gets processed. They said that there was a backlog, but gee whiz!
