Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I inherited my Dads collection after he passed.
I gave 4 pistols to my sister (Ruger Blackhawk 44 mgnum, S&W 357, Erma 22. cal luger and a charter arms bulldog 44 special.
The 2 firearms I have listed in the Great Arms race (Remington 1100 and byf 44 P-38) and the next 12 or 14 I will list are his collection which I will pass down to my heirs someday. Some of those firearms came from his uncle, who got them from his Dad (my Dads Grandfather) so I make the 4th generation they have been handed down to. I like to keep those things in the family.

Wow awesome assortment, you have 12 more than I have. All I have is a Chinese Sterile rifle, that ended up in Albania.

Sorry to hear about your tragic events. Nice collection. I've been on a Paratrooper run lately. PAX

Thanks PAX. Are you the PAX that posts over on the SKSboards? I read over there a lot but very seldom post.

Hope Harvey has not caused you any problems. I caught 15 inches in my rain gauge but only problem it has caused me is I can't get to the range because of flooding. Nice SKS collection. I am down to one SKS after giving two to my children. Stay dry.

I have an Arisaka bring back that was give to me in '60, so technically I'm second generation, buy in reality, it's starting with me. Hopefully, will go at least 4 generations. PAX

With the way things are going now the generations after us may have to hide these things.

Very saddened by your news, i can only imagine what you've been going through.

As far as our common SKS affinity goes, I remember seeing a crate of Chinese at an LGS about 25 years ago, selling for $75. I still kick myself for not picking one up. Would have meant some explaining to the wife, but hell, she ended up being an Ex anyway...

My first was a 59/66 that Todd sold me, still have it, too.
