Well my approved paperwork is in and I get to pick up an old friend Friday.
I will get the WH 1928 that I orginally bought in 1979 from a friend. The gun litterly has not moved since I placed it in his gun case in 1987. I get the gun and a NY Drum and 39 round WH drum and five 30 round stick mags. I feel like it is Christmas.
I know WH's are not thought of very highly here but the gun ran like a million dollers when i sold it and has not been used since.
We left it lubed and the bolt closed and it still looks new so I will see what it shoots like Friday afternoon. I had to tell someone since I got the call.
Thanks
Charles

Well I sold it to him in 1987 for 2K and he is worth about 500 million so he sold it back for 4K. To him it was no big deal. He also has a M3 I am trying to buy but we havent agreed on a price.
