As you know on both the boards, here at TFF and at brand x folks are constantly giveing things to other members.
I am always amazed at the generosity of the pople in our communities(internet).
I usually give to others because it makes me feel good, but yesterday I was on the recieving end of others generosity.
I am stunned and dont know how to express my gratefullness and appreciation for what some have done .
I would like to share with you what I have recieved as gifts from some of our members(here and at Brand X).
I wont mention names as I am not sure they want to be identified as being nice to me
Anyway I want to brag a bit (sorry) and share my happiness at these treasures I recieved.
In the past few weeks I have recieved:
an 1873 Springfield Trapdoor Carbine in excellant condition, all stamps and numbers are sharp and clear and the wood is excellant, along with it I recieved a box of BP loads for the carbine.
This gun is beautiful and fully shootable.
Yesterday I recieved a M1 Garand Stamped 1950 and all springfield parts.
Bore is bright and shiney, wood is near perfect and all parts are near mint.
I also recieved 25 clips for the Garand,, I am still in shock over this.
Also yesterday I recieved a CM560 Cardio Exercise Bike with elctronic heart monitor and controls. Fully prgrammable, one of our members knew I have had some heart problems and needed to begin an excersice routine and sent this to me.
I also recieved 150 rnds of .38 special ammo for the Rossi Lever Gun I am refinishing.
I also recieved some commenortive Bills (copy of currency) with our armed forces logos) that are currently in a frame and hung over my computer desk.
I am overwhelmed at this , you folks are the best.
I never expected to be the recipient of anything, much less the quality of these gifts.
Thank you all, it means more to me than I can say.
