1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    Hey Guys!

    Came across these when scavenging the great interwebs for Sakos and other stuff.


    The Swedish auction house only labeled them as U.S. medals but I haven’t got a clue if they are legit or what you had to achieve to be presented with one of these? Says Sterling silver so probably okay but do we have any military marksmen out there who can tell me more? Age, and preferably what it took to be awarded one or all? And value of course.

    So hit me!

    Hi Jim,
    They look genuine. I'll try to copy them as I have several medals from my Dad. He was on the Governors Staff for 7 years and was a "Sharp shooter" in the 102nd Engineers. My uncle Pete shot" Expert",They competed @ Camp Perry in the 1930s. Too bad not enough rubbed off on me!! I am computer challenged, so if I have trouble sending them to you how can I get them to you ? Please advise. B/T

    Thanks guys!

    I saw the wikipedia article but it is always nicer to learn directly from you members.

    Will not buy them (I think!) but I always love to learn more about the world.
