Oh the possibilities.
I picked up a Plain Jane bone stock unit last year at a gun show for $150 from a guy who had just walked in.
After literally running to an ATM to get the rest of the money, I snagged it from the guy and he was nice enough to give me an extra 4 round magazine and two boxes of shells to go with it.
It was his Dad's hunting rifle and it is in very good condition.
Later on while I was walking around the place that day I saw several with $650 price tags on them so I know I got a killer deal.
It still has the steel butt plate and no scope.
The thing kicks like a Missouri Mule too, I ain't shittin' ya.
Even with my piss poor eyesight and open iron sights, I hit a 4 inch target at 100 yards the first time I pulled the trigger though.
My lovely and quite dangerous wife got me a scope for Christmas and I still have to get the correct mounting rail and the rings.
That part is coming very, very soon.
I have also been slowly gathering ammunition for it, a box here, a box there kinda thing.
I think right after I get the scope on it I need to start seriously looking for some 10 round magazines.
A cushy butt plate is about $50 the last time I looked.
Scanning the internets, I have seen synthetic stocks in the $100-$150 range also.
That may have to wait for a while yet.
It's looking like all the rest of it might have to take on a bit more urgency lately.
