    How the Mak 90 came into my hands is I had bought a G3 from an add in shotgun news when I got it was a Cetme. The add said G-3 type and showed a G-3 in the photo. I never could get it to shoot right and I traded even up for the mak 90 I like it a lot better. They said I could send the G3/Cetme back and they would refund my $ but I would be out the shipping and the transfer fee it made more since to trade it off.

    Bragging are you kidding me I have the grapiest collection in my neighborhood. I do not have a twin mount of full auto .30s, no full auto .50 bmgs, no mp5s, one neighbor has over 250 firearms that I have seen. I was over at the house of one of my neighbors to go hunting and was looking for some where to put my stuff the I was going to leave up at the house wile we were in the woods and he said just leave it there. I asked “what if your wife need something out of the freezer?†he said that is not the freezer it is my gun safe {It was a freezer} he opened it and it was full of rifles and shotguns. At last count there was 1500 long guns and 250.000 rounds of ammo in my neighborhood and that was just what they would admit to having. Humble is a relative term where you are I may have something but here I don’t have squat.

    I made that in less then an Hr. 13 deer walked past that tree in one weekend so we put a stand there after that there has not been a single deer walk along the fence row. But it is nice to take a nap in there is enough room to stretch out in it.

    I only get paid between $150.00 and $190.00 per week.
    This is less then $4000.00 in guns. Trade up not down.
    I also have every thing that goes with them.
