    or maybe historians misread their codes... however, you know the end is near when SKS's go for almost a grand. :confused:

    Future archaeologists will probably have some weird ideas about us if all they recover is a couple DVDs like Dark Knight and Die Hard... :)

    Maybe the Obama era of gun buying will be remembered in history like Tulip speculation in the Netherlands was... :)

    I think the Mayans must have discovered tequila about the time they were working on their calender. Suddenly, carving rock became less important than that warm, happy tequila feeling...

    The Mayans weren't wrong about anything. They werent predicting anything. They just stopped chizeling out the calender.

    Sigh...milsurps.

    I have a Turk Mauser I bought in 1988 or so. I am pretty sure it was $25 at a gun show in East Michigan. Pulled it out of a barrel of Turks, all stored muzzle down (grrrr).

    Today I could sell that for $400. I've seen them at gun shows, lovingly presented on felt - "please don't touch without asking".

    Even Mosin-Nagants are going for $200 some places. Sheesh!

    There's two separate things at work here:

    • The current gun panic
    • We haven't had a world war dominated by bolt-action rifles in a long while and the guns from the last one are pretty much gone.
