    About a month, I went to the LGS with my quarterly bonus looking for an AR or Ak. Both were in stock but priced a little high. As I was looking around, a Norinco SKS caught my eye and I ended up leaving with it. About three days ago, I stopped by a local pawn shop and there sat a Yugo M48 Mauser. Price - $115+tax. Needless to say, I'm now the proud owner. Another pawn shop has a 303 Enfield for $299 but havent done my research yet to know if this is a good deal or not. I love the gun but just don't know anything about them. Maybe some of you guys could weigh in.

    I've been that wooden stock way for just about ever. I also love old rifles and pistols.
    So far my collectonis a
    1942 Mosin Nagant 91/30.
    1955 M1 Garand (Springfield)
    1969 Yugo SKS
    1981 Marlin 30/30
    1952 Marlin DL81 (22)
    1987 CZ 82 (9x18)

    My 2010 Mini 14 Ranch rifle looks more like a M1 Carbine then it does a mini 14.
    Even bought the entry level RIA GI 1911 because it looked liked the 45 I carried in the Military.
    Come to think of it the only plastic stock rifle I own is my 10/22.

    As of late I've been reverting back to all steel pistols.

    Enfield, M14, M1 carbine (my favorite), couple of Arisaka's from my father. Wood is good.

    I've always changed interest in types of firearms I'd buy and shoot. I constantly traded them back in for something else. I spent more money than I care to admit. For the past couple years I've been selling more to make up for lost work time due to illness and operations,etc. I'm only shooting every few months or so and mostly .22 rimfire when I do get out. Less recoil pain and cheaper to boot. YMMV. tom.:embarassed:

    ETA I still would like to get an XDs but wonder if I can handle the recoil of a .45acp in such a light-weight small package. Kind of like the dog chasing the moving car. tom.
