Well I was at the shop picking up my sons Christmas present (romy AK) and I saw a real nice smith corona A3 with a real clean barrel... I have always wanted a 1903 so I stuck her in layaway.
Whats really big about it is that it is my first CnR I will have picked up since everything went to hell. I have been in a 4 year haze of selling rather than buying and my collection had gone from quite a few to very few...

The 1903 is the first gal to join the family in a loooong time... I will post some pics as soon as I git her home! (it will be a few weeks)

damn nice to be buy'n and not sell'n I'll tell you.

any 1903 advice? I am sure it wont be hard to find break down instructions... This rifle is going to get to the range every time I do. Needles to say I am pretty stoked!

Your avatar is disturbing.

Congrats!! We're awaiting pics when she gets home.

At least the avatar isn't wearing a diaper.

Do you need brass?

Those are beautiful rifles, I am envious! Looks like I know who to go to with questions...

It has been a rifle I have always wanted, so what better one to celebrate getting out of selling rifles hell...

This is definitely the firearm that will push me over the reloading edge. Time to look into some dies, press and stuff...

Congrats on acquiring a 1903A3 SC rifle. They are indeed not much different than any Mauser 98 series rifle. Looks like I posted my add a day to late for you to catch it.

Dude, how'd you get a photo of Warren Oats naked?
