I picked up a fairly matched set of Ruger American Ranch Rifles. One in 7.62x39, the other in 5.56x45. Both are very accurate and I am loading for them both.

Found a nice late-Fifties Ithaca 37 in 16 gauge for the wife. Had to have the stock cut down to an 11.5" pull for her little short arms though.

Adam, you know I flip some of the guns etc that I buy. Fellow gave me a 98 Mauser that was slightly ruined shall we say...as far as military collectible wise. I gave it to a friend with some ammo. He has had some wolf problems lately. So now he has a rifle if they come killing his sheep and goats again. . Yes we really do have a problem or 3 with those wolves all those people from the east and left coasts made us live with. They killed one of a neighbors pregnant cows this spring....on my place though. Looks as though some judge from somewhere else has decided to stop the grizzly bear hunt here and Idaho. The grizzlies continue to hunt humans though.LOL
Ward those ol 37s are nice guns. 16s for some reason are coming back in vogue somewhat.
Since July I have mainly been to yard/garage sales and have found some stuff. Bought a few things at a gun show in Bozeman Mt. Rem 552 22 semi auto for the grand sum of 55 dollars. Yeah it were ugly kinda. And from the same fellow I found a kinda rare 38 cal bullet mold. Single cavity 358 93 Spire point bullet. 15 bucks. New in box. got some other bullet molds for 15-20 bucks each. 5 cans of IMR 4350 powder and 3 H4350. Same lot number in respective brands. Paid 15 dollars for them also. Cleaned that ol Remington up and took a small dent out of the mag tube and it shoots just fine. Friend is refinishing the stock for me now. Grandson will get the gun. Yesterday yard sales 10 boxes of Magtech 9mm 115 FMJ ammo for 7 bucks a box 2 hundred rounds once fired 327 Fed brass for a nickle a piece a box of 32 S&W L Rem ammo for 12 bucks and 2 Burris handgun scopes one was a 3-12 Variable with AO and the other 2-7 Variable AO. Both in the boxes for a killer price. Another garage sale i got a folding bipod for rifles for 50 cents and an ol Iver Johnson single shot 410 shotgun for 50 bucks. The best buy though was a like new Benelli Super Black Eagle camo shotgun with case 5 chokes no manual though for 700 bucks. Like I need another shotgun. Sold the 410 an hour later for 150 bucks. People just want old single shot 410s

Did the local small gun show on the 1st of December and did alright but not great. Did get the buy of the show though..,A fellow had a S&W Model 15 38 special 4 inch adj sites..hang tag said 100 bucks. Bought that one without putting it down. I must admit that is is slightly really kinda ugly but it is tight and shoots well. Made another buy that was kind of good. I sold a 590 Mossberg a few years back and wanted to replace it in some way...really wanted to replace it with a Benelli M-1 Super 90 slug gun...just for bear country. Traded a Remington 1911 even up for one that is essentially new. Slug bbl and extended mag tube. I think I got a great deal. I bagged up a yote in the yard already one night. It shoots slugs and 4 buck just great. Fastest operating shotgun I have ever shot. Been buying some bullet molds and reloading supplies for really cheap too. I got 5800 mostly large and small pistol primers with 3 lbs of powder for 25 dollars. Well actually about 2 1/2 pounds as one can was a 9 ounce of that Hodgdon Trail Boss powder. For another 35 dollars got 6 Lee Loader 4 Hornady die sets a Rem 1100/870 12 ga trap stock and a 4 cavity Lachmiller 41 Mag 220 gr bullet mold. 2 of the Lee Loaders were hard to find..one was 7.7 Jap and the other was 410 2 1/2 inch
