    Not trying to start a food fight, just making a simple comment. did not mean to say that some people do not buy the higher price carbines/parts because they can't afford it, but that a WW-2 carbine might just be an "item of interest" to them, not the center of there world.



    Anyway, happy birthday, and spend your stimulus check wisely, maybe invest it toward a really nice carbine.

    There will always be the "stupid buyer" when it comes to about any commodity that can be purchased. There's also a lot of things with historical value out there, but is every one of those items worth buying--of course not.

    When it comes to M1icon carbines, I guess it's about perspective, ability, experience, opportunity and don't forget just pure damn luck.

    Have read all the posts, still did not help me understand your crappy spelling. Does not "dose" stupid not "stupied". Would also bet that Audie Murphy's carbine was not made up of parts from Riverbank Armory.

    Duncan Hines is a decent store bought cake mix. Very moist. Grocery store prepared cakes aren't good.
    Maybe I'll buy some solar panels with the stimulus check. After 10 years buying Carbines, maybe paying down some Carbine debt would be smarter?

    Ever see letters or writing from the Lewis and Clark expedition, or from George Washington's wife, or from the average General in the American Revolution? It has no grammar sintax or punctuation and the spelling is totally phonetic. Having good grammar and spelling is nice but being understood works just fine. There should be a spell check feature on your computer, try that and carry on Brother.

    My computer uses "smell check" because my writing "stinks"!
    When they tell you to behave, they always forget to specify whether to behave well or badly!

    Dave,
    I want to thank you for your kind words, when you said that I should use spell check I got to thinking, why would anyone use spell check if they could spell correctly ? so to me it sounds like no one can spell right, or why would so many use spell check ? so when someone post a comment and every word is spelled right, you know they prob. cant spell right ether, that they used spell check to make other people think that they can, does that make sense ? .
    I think I might have been born at the wrong time in history, like you say, with my spelling prob. I might have made General in the American Revolution ?
    This post was made with out the help of spell check, how am I doing ? and for those who need to use it, I don't look down on you because you can't spell.
    I'm not running for any office, and I approve this message.

    Fast fingers on the keyboard makes for spelling and grammar mistakes. That's why spellchecker is handy.
