    Well, today was the second day of the Indy 1500. Not a bad turnout this year. Prices were a lot less insane this year than last. The days of cheap ammo are gone, but at least they weren't gouging too terribly (no $1/shot .223 Wolf ammo this year, etc.) Selection was pretty good, too. There were a lot of crap guns (Jimenez, Jennings, etc.) but there was also a lot of good ones. Saw a lot more RIA 1911s this year and for decent prices. The mil-surp selection was pretty good also, at least for C&R. Mosins, Mausers, and Enfields as far as the eye could see (FALs, HK91s and the like were expensive, though.)

    Speaking of which, I picked up a K31 today for $250, with an excellent bore and very nice wood. I think it's walnut, but it's probably beech. So, how'd I do?

    Have you pulled the butt plate to see if the paper with the soldiers name is under there?
    The K31 is a great rifle. Outstanding trigger for a military rifle. Cycles smoothly too.
    Ammo is not easy to find and can be expensive. One of these days I am going to get dies to reload this round.

    Yep, pulled the plate off, and there was a little slip of paper with the serial number and the contact info for the soldier to whom it was issued. I think I'll try sending a letter sometime during the week.
