My wife and I helped some friends of our's out with managing a garage sale this past weekend, and my friend stopped by to drop off a gift of appreciation. I was cleaning an old Yugoslavian Mauser at the time, and of course he had to ride me about "that old junk." Like I usually do, I rode him right back with "real men can get the job done with any rifle." It's BS on both our parts, as we regularily shoot our Colt AR-15's together, but it's still fun. Of course I dragged the old girl out and let him fire some rounds of hot Turkish ammunition. After commenting how "She yerks a little, but pretty accurate", I told him I had three others just like it. Then it started. "how much do they go for?" "How much is ammo?" "I wouldn't mind playing around with one." Then the tug of war started with "well, sell me one of yours." (Me)"Can't, I bought them on a C&R license, not for resale." I finally agreed to sell him one I had bought off license at a Fleet Farm Store. It never fails that every time I have trotted out some C&R relic, somebody wan't to buy it. Be it Mauser, Turkish, SKS, or SMLE. First they laugh, Then they WANT.
