    I am just a hobby guy. I may trade once or twice a year. I like old guns which are mostly ~over 50 years old.

    I will bring a few for trading purposes. I have a GA ID and a current GWCL. Is anyone else looking to trade older stuff?

    Old is relative, 50 years is not an old weapon -- but 50 does make it a C&R weapon --
    Trapdoors, krags. 03s. & 17 s are old --
    50 years ago I was 35+ buying anything I could afford -- no paper work --

    I'd like to try and start getting into some milsurps. I don't have anything older than the mid 80's but am interested into looking and learning

    I'll have one of the oldest S&W pre-27 3 1/2" revolvers. It's dated to 7-6-1951.

    Yes, I would aa well --- have a couple that I woulmost everything d like to sell --

    It is a bit difficult to start collecting milsurps today, they have become quite expensive and the really good specimens are scarce --
    Not like when I started, springfields and 1911s to the door for less than $25 - all sorts of weapons for 10 to 20 dollars - My 7mm rem rolling block cost $4.95 including Pancho Villas finger prints on the barrel --- Same weapon sells for 4 to 5 hundred now --
