I'm new to GeorgiaPacking.org but not new to Georgia or guns. I've been here for 5 years, but only recently applied for my GFL. But I'm still waiting on it to arrive. Being in college I don't really have the means to expand the collection quite as fast as I would like. Hoping to have some money in the next month to purchase a Russian M44 (if you happen to have a decent one you'd like to part with, let me know!!). Right now the collection sits at a modest 6:

-My grandfather's Winchester Model 72 bolt action 22 (Short, Long, and Long Rifle)
-My father's old bolt action 12 gauge
-High Standard semi auto .22LR pistol
-Ruger 10/22
-Bersa Thunder 380
-S&W 686 4 inch, 7 shot .357 Mag

The old bolt action rifle is my favorite. For a .22, its very accurate but having the gun my father and grandfather killed hundreds of rabbits with out on their Wyoming ranch means so much more than accuracy. The revolver probably comes in at a close second.

I tend to venture out of the city to different friends' property to plink and throw some skeet about once a month. That's all I can really afford these days.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself.

Welcome. Nice collection you have there. I have a few guns from my dad, and whether or not they're any good just doesn't matter...'cause they're from my dad.
I hear you. That doesn't really apply to that shotgun though. My dad bought it real cheap and never really liked it. Has a nice over-under he hunts with and this was just a junk gun. In fact, the stock split on it a month ago (the kick from slug rounds was just too much for the wood) and he said just find a way to dispose of it. Apparently it isn't even worth trying to fix.

I'm a senior at Georgia Tech's Savannah campus. :wave: That 10/22 looks just like mine except for the magazine release (i think that's what that is). Mine doesn't stick out that much. Does have a scope and the Hardwoods paint.

Howdy.

I know where you're coming from. My dad's got an old [1940] bolt-action .22 that his dad bought. It's a Mossberg, rebranded for Montgomery Ward. The magazine's flaky and it's not worth jack on the market, but it's still a cherished possession.

As for the M44- I was at Moss Pawn in Jonesboro last week, talking to a guy there about mil-surps. Apparently, someone drove up with a pickup full of old Nagants. About 40 rifles in all, mostly M44s with some 91/30s thrown in. Whenever they get around to releasing them, they should be selling for around $50 each. Probably not in the best shape, but those things are built like tanks anyhow and even the most abused ones make pretty good shooters.

How big can your head get when you haven't won a National Championship since 1980?

Umm...We have won a national championship since then. 1990.

Would you like fries with that? :wink:
GT in 1990.

UGA in 1980

Not sure what you mean.
