    I had an extensive gun collection, 2 full safes of guns, and still had some out that wouldnt fit in the safe. Got up one morning and decided since i really didnt shoot half of what I had that Id sell em off and buy different stuff. So I went through them and everything that hadnt had a round chambered in that past 6 months got sold. So I went from 2+ cabinets full to one cabinet with a little room to spare. Then I bought the wife a new car:)

    JLA, Like your signature states, sometimes that's the facts of life.:eek:
    Just kidding, sometimes ya gotta do that.
    Ive done some riding myself, and just about where I "need"/"should" be.

    ............. thus ensuring a few less glaring looks when some more rifles come home at a later date! Smart move! ;)

    Nice looking guns there MJ ! Also on the pics too, I gotta do something about my lack of photography skills. I'm lucky to get them to come out clear. All you're lacking is the hot blonde from your pic, then it would be perfect! :p

    MJ is that a G43 or a K43? I had the pleasure of cleaning up a K43 found in a attic a few months ago. Talk about surprise. And then I told them what its worth :)

    Steel but cap with trap door.

    I use defused out door light a tripod and the timer to get clear pictures. No direct sun to prevent glare so a plastic covered deck will work.


    AC 44 g's by Walther in the g and j block. At one time I had all the makers and types but like the rest of the world I had to down size too. My cam is a $70 Fuji nine years old so it can be done.
