    Default New member from Altoona

    Hello. I'm a new member but longtime lurker, currently living in Altoona.

    I'm on a tight budget, and I'm interested in military history, so I tend to gravitate toward old Commie surplus guns. The range I go to is the Bellwood Sportsmen's Club, although my work schedule limits my free time.

    I just purchased a Zastava M70A 9mm from AIM surplus, for $239. Haven't had a chance to fire it yet, but it seems very well-made and fits my large hands very well. This is my only purchase from AIM, and everything went perfectly.

    I also had a good experience at Northern Supply in Juniata, where they did the FFL transfer for me. They are listed some places as charging $15, but now they charge $25. My experience was good, the guys there were friendly and helpful, and they had a couple brands of 9mm FMJ in stock.

    Welcome to the forum (from your neighbor to the east).

    I am a member up at Bellwood as well, but have not even had a chance to go up there and shoot yet!

    Northern supply is charging 25 now!?! They use to do it for 15! I had several guns transferred there for that.

    I lived in Juniata Gap when I was a kid, near the old railroad bed that goes to the top of Wopsy. Good memories!

    Regarding Northern Supply, the employee I dealt with was new and didn't know they ever charged $15, but it still shows that price on the "dealer network" link at AIM Surplus.

    I've never tried to run a gun store, maybe it's hard to maintain a fee that low and still keep the lights on. I dunno.

    i was never aware there was a railroad bed on wopsy.


    I think i may possibly know who the guy at the gunshop is. I think my wife had some classes over at penn state with him a few years back. I'm going to have to ask them about the price increase. I wonder if they would have to be obligated to honor that price if its being advertised?
