I listed my Pre-1945 collection earlier this month. I told you all that I'd get around to showing you some of my more modern things... so here they are.

This is my FN-FAL in LMG setup. It has an adapter that the Canadians made to convert it into a belt fed machine gun. It still can use magazines, too. It's in .308 NATO and was manufactured in Canada and yes... she's full auto. *grins and holds up Class III license*

Here's my Simonov Carbine (SKS). It was made in Russia in 1966. It was modified by the East Germans to accept AK-47 mags. It's semi auto, but is still fun to shoot. It's chambered for 7.62x39.

I still have more, but they're way back in the gun safe. Hope you enjoyed it.

Nice. Makes me miss my FAL.

OK.... How the hell did you afford an NFA weapon?

Kick ass though!

Oh... my father picked it up several years back...

He paid about a fourth of what it's worth today. I'm trying to find an original military bipod for it, but those run $200 which I don't have.

I'm glad you like it.

Firepower Indeed. I've always had a special place in my soul for all Fabrique-Nationale weaponry, and the FAL is no exception...almost makes me aroused.

I have (from my grandfother for now) the old S&W .357 Magnums from the Korean War. It is not the same version, with it missing the U.S. Navy emblem and the grip is a different pattern of wood with a wood grain finish.

He also has soom gind of old war rifle. I keep meaning to see what it is, and I am not quite sure what it is from just looking at it in his cabinet.

Look under revolvers for the pistol. It is quite accurate and very fun to shoot. I took it deer hunting with me a week into gun season and, after not seeing anything for a whole day, and the others calling it quits, I decided to wage war against those pesky squirls.

There is a dealer close by called Dunlaps Gun and Pawn, that carries other older series rifles. I am currently looking for WWII guns also. The dealer hsa a short supply of Kar98Ks, Mason Nagants, a special on M1Carbines, and I think 2 Colt 1945s left. My counsin has a Carcano M38 which I long for. I hope to aquire it some day from him somehow. When the time is right, I will most likely take my money to get one of the scoped Kar98Ks at the pawn shop.

Other weapons I am looking for to collect include the 1911 which I may get in a smaller caliber.

I love FN weapons. I'd love to find an FN-BAR. It was the American BAR, but improved. Those things are incredibly rare. Ever seen an FN-Five Seven? Oh gees those things are sweet.

LastMan, you can find Carcanos at a reasonable price at gun shows. They run around here in Tennessee from $50-$150. The ammo is somewhat scare in these parts, but the internet offers lots of ammo sellers.

I'm looking to buy a P-38 Walther here soon. I've found one for $340, so that might be my next pistol.

Im no gun expert, and Im too young to own one, but once I can I am planning on getting a pistol like the one you have pictured, I believe its a Mauser
(or something)? Revolvers are also pretty cool and I want to get one of those too.

Eh, yeah... she's a Mauser. Definitely my favorite handgun ever. You'd better be saving up for a while, because they're really expensive now days and are semi-rare. But, once you get one, it's a beauty. I believe it is one of the only guns to have a massive muzzle flash visible during broad day light. I've read accounts where a "massive fireball" exits the muzzle. Quite neat.
