    The guy is nice enough just a lousy sales man. He would do better by me if he just smiled and took my money. Hes talked me out of buying several times.

    My m44 and m38 are my best dollar to fun ratio of any gun I own. I paid less than $200 for each of them. I bought a shit ton of surplus when it was available cheap. I do the same.....when I'm taking friends to the range I always bring a carbine for shits and grins. But....my m38 is more accurate than my 91-30......does quite well at cmp bolt action events.

    I have two carbines and a 91-30 never paid more than $200. The 91-30 was my first and was $139. At sub $200 they have value for what they are.......but climbing up to $300.....I'd never have bought one.

    I shoot mine 2-3 times a year at cmp bolt action matches for shits and grins and also when I bring friends to the club I bring a carbine for the boom and flash fun. But.....have to say they have "value" to me due to the low cost I paid for them years ago.......combine that with the stockpile of sealed 440 round cans I have stashed away and if the shtf I have some nice bartering material. Yes......I do think that way lol

    If the SHTF, I have an unopened 900 round case/2 tins of '69 HXP .30-06, and an unopened 900 round tin of '99 Yugo M75 8mm. My 'special reserve'.

    Should probably stock up on .38 special and 9mm...

    They're facing almost due south; why do I always get the north end?
