    I have a "rough" Remington P14 coming, all matching, should be here Monday.
    A buddy in Arizona came across a matching 1908 Brazilian that should be here next week sometime. It's kinda dirty but for the price the all matching makes up for it.
    here i thought you might be a dealer or something with how often your digging up rare items and buying/selling.

    i just threw 5yr nra membership on paypal, they dont like guns and i get 6mo sac so i get to make payments, next 2 paychecks and it'll be paid off.
    so i'm finally a member.
    and since it's the photo thread

    I used to be a dealer, I still help one out.
    A couple local dealers have my number for when they get the good stuff in.
    I have many contacts I guess is one way to put it.

    Almost two years ago a contact in California sent me an email asking if I had or know someone who has something he was looking for so he could finish his latest book.
    He needed two import marks to include in his section on E. German Makarovs.
    I had one and I know a guy who had the other.
    This author looked for months for a picture of these two importers marks and couldn't believe I had one and found him the other in a matter of days.
    So if I ever go to sell that particular item I can say it's a published gun, will it make it worth any more? Who knows, but it's a cool story that gives a little extra something to that particular pistol.

    A retired guy in Florida that used to do the gunshow circuit in the early 90's just sent me some pics of a couple older 1911's he is looking to sell or trade.
    While I'm not a 1911 guy we are working on a deal right now as increasing my collection for the benefit of my kids later down the road is my goal.

    As for selling, I buy way more than I sell, I don't post pictures of even 5% of what I buy here.
    Without counting, I've bought 40+ guns this year, maybe sold 4 or 5 and that's only because I had something better on the hook so I let go a lesser example to improve my collection.
    Much of the stuff I do sell I've owned for a while.
    I will buy a group of guns to get a deal and will sell one or two of the group that I really didn't want, but that's how you can get the good deals, take a group of guns off of someones hands in one deal, this saves them the aggravation of dealing with multiple buyers while giving you the leverage to haggle.


    I know a certain poster here thinks this is bragging, but it's not, I just like to explain my methods in the hopes they could assist others in building up their own collections.

    Say you like Remington model 12's, let the local dealers know.
    They may or may not call you.
    Sometimes they will have someone selling but their price is too high for them to buy and resell.
    They might call you and get you into contact with the seller.
    This is a great way to get your collecting preferences out there.
    That guy might know a guy, who also knows other guys or knows of a shop where there is someone you are looking for sitting on a rack.
    Networking old fashioned style.

    On Saturday I picked up a vehicle to use in Gambler 500 races and to make into a camping/offroading rig.

    1990 Suburban for $800. Already got 4.56 gears, a front locker, and 36" tires lined up. I'm going to try and get by with no lift and just trimming the shit out of the fenders. Avoid having a big gay truck that doesn't flex.

    350 with TBI, auto, 1/2 ton running gear.

    Well, ok, I would have chosen Linda Hamilton, but if you want to be with Pierce, I guess there's nothing wrong with that.

    and a trip to the house of pain.
