I don't know about you but my parents had no use for firearms, the 70 or 80 firearms that I have bought or sold over the past 30 years, have been done with my own hard earned paycheck. And the only reason that that I only had that many firearms was that my ex restricted me to having only 10 guns in the house at any one time. When I look back on that, I realized that I was able to concentrate on quality rather than quantity. Erika, I prefer my S&W 4" M66 over the Model 19, personal preference. I do agree with you on the Mk II and the Garand but would prefer to substitute a 12 ga. riot gun for night patrols and ferel dog control over the 10/22.
