    Disposed of lethal, scary, evil black rifle with massive clip today.

    Had a Bushmaster AR-15 I never really cared for. Took it to the gun show in Greensboro today and traded it for an M-1A I have been wanting for awhile. I also picked up a few spare mags but they were grossly overpriced, I made the mistake of not looking around enough and paid $49.95 for two mags the found another vender selling the same mags for $34.95 from which I bought a few more. Now I just need to pick up a set of .308 dies. Oh and I do have another AR-15.

    Saw the tag, "Disposed of lethal, scary, evil black rifle with massive clip today." and was ready to ready to ask for your NRA card, (and Man card) but now, I must say Im impressed. That was an awesome trade.

    I am a collector of the green bills and I think when I have a big enough collection I'll swap them for a M1 or a M1A to add to my collection. It appears any gun appreciates more today than the green bills.

    I just missed out about 2 minutes, on buying an excellent condition M1A..... I can't describe that sinking feeling that I had.

    In my humble opinion, sir, you definitely traded up!

    I'm a big far of the AR platform, and I have more rounds through it than any other platform. It's my go-to long gun for just about everything...and I heartily approve of your trade!

    There's something that's just plain right about the M14/M1A family. I've got three of them, and I enjoy them even more than I enjoy my AR's. I have to applaud your savvy in using the current market to your advantage without gouging anyone. Well done, sir.

    When you average em all up you still didn't do too bad considering this panic environment.
