Here it is. This is a still frame from a video I made at ETTS on Friday

So far, all I’ve done is add the following:
So, it’s mostly stuff to make it either fit me better, or more comfortable and versatile to use. I zeroed it at 100 yards on Friday out at ETTS, with the scope (the iron sights are worthless to me until I get my cataracts removed. It’s not a terrible accurate rifle, but it is accurate enough for minute of man. It shot around 3” to 4” groups at 100 yards. It will stack the first two bullets pretty close to one another, and then as the barrel heats up, the group begins to open up. I’m OK with that.

Too many to mention.

Don't have a revolver yet.

Really want an AK-47/AKM pattern rifle.

M-1 Carbine that I waited too long to buy and am going to pay through the nose for.

So on and so forth.

Barrett 50 cal
Gatling gun
Full auto M60

Other than that, I'm pretty well stocked at the moment. Oh, I wouldn't mind getting a Dan Wesson revolver pistol pack, now that they have started making them again. But I want a 2 inch barrel to go with the ones that are in the pack.

As scary as it sounds, just one.

I want a Controlled Round Feed, Claw Extractor, Winchester Model 70 in .458 Winchester Magnum.

The gap in my collection is a rifle that will take any animal on this planet. I handload and I also cast bullets. The .458 Win Mag can be loaded with Trail Boss and a 300 Grain Hard Cast Flat Point at 1200 fps for an inexpensive practice round that will still easily take any varmint, deer, or hog, up to a 500 Grain Hornady FMJ at 2160 fps that will take an elephant. A big cartridge case like that allows for great versatility, and I want that :). I may never make it to Alaska or Africa, but I want a rifle capable of making the trip if it does happen.

Just my .02,

That’s a great choice. I’ve always had a fondness in my heart for a classic wood-stocked bolt action express rifle in .416 Rigby, and swore I’d have one some day. I still don’t have one. Don’t ask me why that particular caliber. I’m almost certain that it is far from the most powerful of the .40+ caliber rifle cartridges. I think it’s just the sound of the name......”.416 Rigby”, by golly! It just sounded so exotic the first time I heard it that it has had me hypnotized ever since. 375 H&H Magnum is another one. But for some reason, that Rigby cartridge got under my skin. I’m sure that .458 Win Mag is a far more practical - and probably effective - choice.

I want a belt fed full auto. Any belt fed. Maybe if I trade in my Jeep and my Caddy I can get one. That and an MEP-803A surplus diesel generator...google it...very cool. :smilelol5:

I need the French MAS 36 to complete my WWII rifle collection. Just kind of on the fence on getting the 36 or a Berthier, as I believe the Berthier was more in use by the regular infantry in 1941. So, in no hurry as it is more fun to find one that needs work and to fix it up. I did this with most of my other weapons, like the Carcano and the K98K.

The one that I really want is a full-auto version of the FNP90. They just look really fun!

There are 3500 different makes and models of firearms out there (I pulled that # out of the air).. I have about 16, so I guess what's missing is 3482 of them. :fire

I need to replace my .380 I sold and have never pulled the trigger on a .44 mag. (Pardon the pun) Other than those two, I have at least one of every other caliber I can think of, rifles and shotguns included. Err, I mean HAD, until I lost them in a boating accident! :leaving
