    Couple of things about that PMR-30.... I remember a review done a few years back, by Hickock .45....granted, he is a better shot than most pistoleros, but he didn`t seem to have much trouble hitting just about everything he aimed at.
    Also, IIRC, that thing only takes the .22 MAGNUM round, which ain`t exactly cheap, especially when you`re dumping out 30 rounds at a time....

    Hey Dirk,

    Glad to hear your pain free man, at least in the lower back. It’s an M1, and it now as company as I just acquired my first 1944 Springfield so we have a mean pair of two. Just kinda fun little story for you, I took my youngest son to the range, the day that picture was taken (30) last week, he’s never shot the M1. I started at 100 yards and we progressed to 980 yards 3 foot round gong. Lots of guys shooting F class rifles and fancy scoped rifles. Soon the entire range was watching as it was boom....thwaaak on the steel, turning into a tink at the further ranges.

    It was neat, and a supreme day as I watched my son take a deep interest, he spotted me as I would shoot first then he would shoot and I spotted him along the way running the windage knob up. So the 1944 I bought is for him and I can now pass on my skills to him, or that ART as you say it :thumbsup:.

    As a father I’ve been very humble these last few days.

    (M1 1903 A3 breach loading magazine fed shoulder weapon) sorry all this gun talk short circuited my brain and put me back to 14 with my rifle at military school.
    I’ve noticed many audiophiles (like that phrase or not) also admire the craftsmanship and engineering that goes into other things like firearms and watches.
    I see many guns I would be proud to own, no junk here for sure.

    Yeah, you can't shoot anything but .22 mag out of the pmr 30. The problem is any .22 mag ammo my friend tried was tumbling, producing keyhole shaped holes in the target, even at close range. This was not uncommon at the time, many people had that problem. I dunno if they fixed it, but I wouldn't buy one until I could verify it didn't do that.

    A friend found this Marlin-Glenfield, youth model, .22 in a 5 gallon bucket of broken shit at a pawn shop. I've installed a new site elevator and addressed most of the abuse. This was my go-to for varmint head shots on 10 acres.

    Gun porn pictures or it isn't real.:biggrin:

    It seems that the metallurgy and rifling was good on these old Marlins. I've been lusting after a longer barrel model after witnessing what this one can do.

    Well, there is a one Marlin here in lever action. This is a model 336 that was sold as a scope combo in 30-.30 Win.

    Nice, I have one with the squirrel stock my dad bought before I was born. It's stupid accurate with the iron sights. I cornholed a squirrel that was tearing up my house with it. I actually felt sorry for that lil sob, but he wouldn't turn around for a headshot.

    Yes the .22 mag. Sorry been busy didn't see your post. Frankly I don't know much about the " 30" other then what I read. I'm just in the market for a .22 mag. As a young man, I use to take my grandmothers actually my great grandmothers .22 mag out, hunting.

    I was a terror as a young man, no regard for anybody or anything. The things I killed with the .22 mag were simply unreal. One would be foolish to underestimate the .22 mag.

    As a result of my wild child youth, and all the things I killed, that didn't need killing, I no longer hunt or kill anything. It's my penitence, for my youth.

    I've also been to a couple shootings were the murder weapon was a .22 mag. The folks shot were DRT. Impressive abilities, in a small round.

    I still fly fish, but haven't hunted in 30 plus years.

    To date I can't find one in the gun stores locally. Other wise I'd own one.

    Thank,you,for the heads up. Key holing isn't really a bad thing! Lol.

    Loveeeee the 1911, a special place in my heart for Colt pistols. I collect 1911's.

    The knife, I should know what it is, but I'm having a brain fart. What is the knife, " brand"

    Aaaaahhhjjj the model 39. I no longer have any,,,,, Sold the two I had, years ago to fund other purchases. Also had the model 59s, back in the 90s. Back then I decided it was 1911s, and Browning Hi Powers for me. A choice I've never regretted.

    While I'm here for stereo gear info, I love the fact that we can talk guns, aswell.

    Make sure you have a roll of TP handy before you look at this gun porn. This is my new in box NEVER FIRED Browning Superposed. Bought in ‘65 at Sears as a gift for her husband who tragically died 6 months later before getting to use it. Complete with Ted Williams cleaning kit.

    Pro-Tech, interesting. Was thinking Micro Tech. I've got a Benchmade Infidel. I'm not happy with it at all. I find it to be a gimmick OTF, rather then a serious knife.

    Certainly not a knife I'd carry for defensive situations.

    Very nice, I'm going to look into those. I've carried Emersoms for at least twenty years. Looking to find an even better knife.

    Thanks again.

    What an amazing find, she's stunning. What an honor to find and purchase a shotgun like that.

    Congratulations, on a wonderful over and under
