Day off today, and amongst the doctors appointments, visiting here and there, doing this and that..... I stopped by my favorite gun shop.
A) I stumbled on a screaming deal: A Persian-Czech Model 98/29 'Musketoon', or cavalry carbine. The bore is rough, and the metal finish all but gone.... but its a beautiful piece of history. MY Beautiful piece of history.
B) His quite little back country gun shop without even a sign (Specializes in high end collectables and such) has been utterly swamped. People driving from half a state away since he had stock. They sold 106 handguns last week.... and he's dreading the rest of this week, once word of a possible insane Presidential Directive begins really spreading.
People are going to great lengths to prepare.... it's like they see bad times ahead or something.
