    Already have the .308 Garand. Totally worth it. Recently got a PSL to use up the 7.62x54r and reasons.
    I got rid of my PSL, it couldn't hit the floor with it's hat. It was brand new and shipped from the factory and you would think you couldn't hit a bull in the butt with a bass fiddle when you shot the thing. I hope you have better luck than I did, I haven't shot any others for comparison nor did I want to. This was way back when you could get a new one for less than $700 and it wasn't worth it...

    Yep....always wanted a .357 lever gun...should have scratched that itch years ago but just never did....with prices what they are now, guess I better stock up on calamine lotion instead...
    Yes. I WANT a Henry Big Boy Steel Side Gate Carbine in 357 but so far have resisted. A little encouragement from anybody with any kind of justification would probably push me over the edge to make the purchase!

    My 1873, and 1892 Winchester’s are both chambered in 32-20. It was the .38/.357 of its day.
    Pre Covid, I could get a box of 50 for about $30.

    A month or so ago, I picked up a couple hundred rounds for around $2 a round and thought I stole them.

    I’ll never sell either one, but they don’t get shot like they should.

    Yes. I want a 338 lapua very much but have no reason to own it as I don't shoot anywhere even close to the distances it should get.

    Still gonna buy one. Might settle for the slightly lesser 300 win mag though.

    Like I mentioned in my original thread. The ammo is CRAZY expensive The ammo 32 Winchester Special (WS) for the rifle I want (Winchester 94 pre-64, pre-WWII) is averaging $85.00 for 20 rounds.:nailbite:

    Shiloh Sharps. I had a Navy Arms replica for a little while, and seldom shot it. In reality a "real" Sharps would be a safe queen, but every time I see one, I think I should own it, especially with long range sights.

    I was pretty lucky and got my main responsibilities done by 38, so I was able to buy, sell, or trade about anything I wanted. I even spent some time collecting while I was still shooting Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun competitively. A man can reach a point where you can walk around a gun show with 20 Benjamins in your wallet and not buy a firearm. I would have never believed it 30 years ago.

    That does not mean I will not shoot yours if offered. <grin>
