    Captain Charles McVay

    Captian Charles Butler McVay, III; (1898-1968) In 2001 he was exonerated by congress and the Navy of all guilt after years of pleas from his remaining crew, school children, congressmen and even the captain of the sub that sank his ship. His story is told in the play "Failure to ZigZag" and the movie "Mission of the Shark, the last voyage of the Indianapolis". The general story is also mentioned in the movie "Jaws"

    Personals Ad, 1800s Style

    Today, any 18 years old hasn't even held a real job, much less bought a car or paid for their own insurance. This young man had clear land and planted a crop, times have changed.

    Safety Not Working New Marlin 336

    Thanks Rex
  6. I bought a new Marlin 30-30 model 336 / 1895 lever rifle around last Christmas. I have not shot it, I did added a new scope. Today I was cycling the rifle and I noticed that if the safety was ON or OFF, it would still FIRE. I know you can look at the hammer and see if it's cocked or not, since it's new I would like for the safety to work. I believe I read that Remington was not honoring Marlins repairs? What would you do?

    Are You Experienced? The GunBroker Webby

    I have found several deals on used guns (and new), read fine print, as sellers differ in rather they except US Postal Money Orders or Credit Cards. Some offer free use of a credit card, others charge up to three percent for use. Don't be in a hurry, as some wait seven days after receiving funds to ever ship. I've had some good and real slow receiving FFL (one was working out of his residence, FFL). Some of the photos could be a lot better and some will not let you enlarge them, so make sure you ask question before biding. I really like the way you can select new only, or used only and no reserve. When you search for a gun, remember that paid listing come up first, so you may go thru one or hundreds of listing before you get to the non-paid listing (this is where I seem to find the bargains). I did order a used shotgun for my grandson for Christmas, even when the seller did everything he could to get in the mail it was past Christmas before I received it. I bought a pair Great Western Alchimista II 1873 Revolver in .357 like new (only test fired) in original boxes, including action job, and installation of lighter springs (He paid $300 for both guns), for $999 plus $45 for shipping and $20 for my FFL, total $1064. $532 less $150 means I paid $382 each before action jobs (each). No one else bid, it was right before Christmas and I can only guess that buyers weren't looking for Cowboy Action Guns at the time of year. You can put ads in your watch list and follow for weeks or months and then see what that gun is selling for (highs and lows). Under Firearms there or four listing: Cowboy Action Shooting (mostly pistols), Shotguns, Pistols and Rifles. If you don’t know exactly what gun you want can be a little difficult. At the time I didn’t know what kind of shotgun I wanted. Example: I search shotguns, double barrel shotguns, side by side shotguns; from there you can choose Manufacture (I didn’t know), Model ((I didn’t know), Barrel Length (I didn’t know, I knew I could cut it down), Gauge 12 GA, (Then I selected Sorted By Price: Low to High. As of today there or 1558 to choose from; starting at $.01 to $25,000 and then starting over again at $.01 to $29,995, a shotgun for everyone. There is an app for you smart phone that will differ from what’s listed above. Disclaimer: I do live in the county of Texas, so I can buy anything I want. I have not had a bad experience on GunBroker.com and will continue to use this auction site. Any questions, do ask!
