After my 'final' final Wednesday I discovered that the ATF (c/o my coworkers ) <- that means "care of", infering that my coworkers are agents due to the gifts that htey presented to me.... nevermind... had a little graduation congrats for me - champagne and a Mosin like I bet few of you have seen.

After giving my coworker the gun collecting disease, he has gotten his C/R license and begun restoring old WWII pieces of interest or rarity. He presented me with this one that he had personally spent many hours on cleaning, refinishing, shlacking, upgrading (he actually 'freefloated' the barrel, I crap you not).

Needless to say, I am blessed. And this graduation stuff is so good, I may have to do it again



This ain't your 'run of the mill' Mosin

lol, that's the first thing that crossed my mind "dang, I shouldn't have given that away" (j/k). I went and bought some from JoJos, they've got the Czech steel cased stuff for $3.50/20 right now.

Thanks - your time will come soon, young grasshopper

I don't get the "ATF" part, but congrats on the new rifle!

Now I understand. Congratulations on the graduation. Best wishes for a great future. Best leave the alcohol and tobacco out of your life though. Bad habits are like cute puppies. They end up being a nasty SOB you can't get rid of.

Thanks. You are correct about the alum fund campaigning, they even gave a brief spill about it during commencement, lol.

Damn, Beetle! When I graduated college I got a coffee table. I graduate from medical school in May, and I bet I sure won't get any guns. Consider yourself lucky.

Congrats.
