    The last couple of weeks have been tough. Somehow caught a nasty bug which aggravated my COPD and left me flat . Now feeling better and went to my local pawn shop where I had a few things on lay away. #1 is an Modello 1891 Argentine cavalry carbine made by Ludwig Lowe, Berlin. that makes two firsts for me: first South American Mauser and first antique. While there I was noticing an Arisaka Type 99 Short Rifle. It has the monopod, AA sights, original sling and came with a bayonet and scabbard. So while I'm feeling better I've now increased the calibers of my collection by two.

    I have four South American Mausers, two are Loewe (antiques). But I don't have the carbine yet. For some reason it's so ugly it's gorgeous. It's on my list when I get done with my project list a bit and free up some funds. Nice score!

    Glad to hear you survived, you need to restrain yourself from kissing those Romulans ;)

    That aside, if you have to get sick, those are some mighty fine gifts to yourself for getting better :)
