    I forget, living far from CA, can you get vintage (but, I certainly do not mean 'antique') handguns from out-of-state? I was once responsible for a 8-3/8" Model 53 Smith leaving CA, and I wondered if I'd pulled one out of an ever-shrinking pool...

    If it is classified as a Curio & Relic, maybe. I am currently trying to get a definitive answer on that - one local FFL says yes, and another no. If it is not C&R, then you can only buy them locally via private party transfer, FFL's can't even sell them.

    maybe i'm late jumping on this wagon, but the five-seven with the vertical grip would be considered an AOW (any other weapon) according to the ATF. hope you have the proper paperwork/credentials! and illegal AOW is a felony. meaning no guns, voting and mandatory jail time.

    Looks like CMP won't be getting those Korean M1s - straight to retailers like SOG.

    Surplus M1 Garands $429 "mechanically fine": http://www.southernohiogun.com/new-a...1-garands.html Wish I could justify one, but no.
    Whoa. Even cheaper than the CMP (though they likely have import marks). I'm not much of a military arms guy, but let me just add that Garands are pretty awesome. Big bang. [​IMG]

    I traded a Spanish Civil War 7mm M1916 Mauser, a Century Arms CETME B and my CZ82 this week. In return I got a .22 K98 trainer (made in the USSR, I think): [​IMG] And a new .380 Browning BDA (made by Beretta and basically a Beretta 84 with slide-mounted safety/decocker and a full length slide) for daily concealed carry as an alternative to the little .357magnum snubby: [​IMG]

    Cheers. I'm loving to quality of the Beretta/Browning.

    I did the swap at Fountain Firearms in Sugarland. They have a good range of stuff but with high sticker prices. I did find that they are fairly negotiable on those advertised prices and do a reasonable trade-in deal. Not my favourite shop in town, but ok if they have what you're looking for, I guess.

    I've never been to Fountain, I've checked their site several times in the past. I was always planning on heading out that way, but never found the time to make that drive.

    I'm glad to see you finally found you a new toy...I know you've been eyeing a .380 for a while.

    We'll have to go to that Tomball pawnshop one weekend. Maybe Knob Creek someday, too - THAT would be a fun one!

    Anyone here ever been ... or there this weekend?
