    Don't know if anybody remembers me

    Or cares LOL.
    I've been out of the C&R game for a while. It's been a while since I've been on this form. I hope Everybody's doing good.

    Thumbs up

    I believe I do remember you. Welcome back! Alas the C&R world has dimmed a great deal from what it used to be. I still have quite a fee of mine but nothing like I used to and I haven't added a C&R in years.

    None the less welcome back.
    While no one ever listens to me,
    I am constantly being told to be quiet.

    Welcome back!

    Not many people bragging these days about the latest C&R they found. It seems the days of reading an importer bragging "Hey look what we found in the back corner of a dusty warehouse" are long gone. And prices show it.

    The hay day of C&R's seems to be gone.
    I had to sell off my collection to a friend, but he lets me buy them back for what I sold them to him for. Except for a few that he covets.

    I've gotten about 2/3 of them back.

    Welcome back! Yep, no more C&R deals. Right now we are in the golden era of do-it-yourself AR15 builds instead.

    Yes I vaguely remember you. Welcome back. Yes the hey day of C&R is done, no deals anymore IMO. Were you here when Zouave passed away? I also agree with you have a nice friend to sell you back your collection without gouging you. I smell a divorce as the cause. Was that the case?

    I think was here when Zouave passed. I was definitely here when Redstar passed.

    It was due more to the economy.

    I remember the handle, welcome back!
    We found out what "dealing" with progressive lefties is all about. Our side gives up something, they give up nothing and the progressives come back in a month or a year and want us to give up more... rinse and repeat...

    Yeah, I remember you too. And yes, C&R's have seen much better days.

    Maybe with new management in DC, they'll loosin up the importation situation and things will improve. Assuming there are still stockpiles of old mausers, mosins, etc. waiting out there...
