        the lever action is a Henry made 22LR caliber they call Golden boy, brass receiver. Walnut wood, it is a beautiful rifle, I have put a nice scope on it to shoot squirrels and raccoons.

            I love that MG42....nothing like classy!!

            you 1919 machine gun, I got to fire one of those with blanks when I was a kid, maybe 9 or 10, at Texas A&M College (back then IIRC) when my older bro attended there, it was all "corps" back then (and I don't mean corpse).

              It is a original WWII with nazi cartouches. It was a bear to make, It is semi auto closed bolt. Uses a AR firing group. Mistake I made was to get it in a .308 caliber. It is cheaper to buy a .308 conversion than a 8mm conversion. At the time, .308 was plentiful and 8mm was hard to get. The 1919 is also in .308. The 1919 was easier, it is already fires from a close bolt.

                I am not much of a collector and I do not get to go shooting as much as I did before kids and wife's career but I did put together one good rifle for myself and it is a pleasure to shoot. Savage special order shop 112, 30-06 w/ 24" fluted bull barrel. Zeiss glass.

                  Ratt, it looks really good. Savage makes a very fine rifle. Why did you choose 30-06?

                    The DW-toybox isn't massive in comparison to some, but it's contents are in my opinion very nice and varied.

                        Ratty ...nice long gun mate. Once your kids are grown and the pace slows down, you may start collecting more guns that you "just have to have".

                        @Deltawhiskey.....thanks for all your photos, you have an impressive group of long guns! photo 2 and 3 are my favs. <drooling down chin>

                          Thanks Hollis. I was convinced after shooting a friend's model 10.

                          I chose 30-06 b/c as stated, it is hard for me to buy even half of the firearms my heart desires so I settled on one that could do as many tasks as I might need a rifle to do and 30-06 will just plain do everything.

                          @Commanding: In about 10 years or so when I settle down in one place I imagine they will start breeding in the safe

                            here is the Ruger New Vaquero 357 magnum caliber single action (blued) revolver, with it's "old west" holster and belt. (no I never done the competition shooting)


                            @ Ratty the firearms seem to breed well in the safe if kept well lubricated and clean, no matter if you swear up and down to the wife you will never need to buy another one, they still appear regularly. Odd.
