I hang out on other forums, I go by the same handle incidentally, but thought I would add myself over here as well. Right now my collection is primarily Enfields but I'm rebuilding after having a rough year and being forced to sell off almost all of what I once had. The Enfields I currently own are:

1906 BSA/Sparkbrook No 1 Mk I*** (sadly sporterized but am reversing that)
1917 Enfield No 1 Mk III*
1917 BSA No 1 Mk III*
1939 BSA No 1 Mk III (the * was cancelled on this one)
 
Anyway, hi to all and hope I can contribute in a some small way.

A square 10: I actually didn't sell all the Enfields to begin with. While I had no qualms about getting rid of the Mausers, Mosins, and other assorted rifles, I just could not part with my 1906 BSA/Sparkbrook or the all matching 1917 Enfield. My insanity had it's limits Smile
 
Flying Ace: You aren't missing a whole lot... Lots of flatlands until you get to the western side of the state. Nice out in the Black Hills though.

It has been going around a lot, I've noticed it quite a bit in my area. Other than my 2 Enfields I kept all my heirloom pieces. The rest went on down the road.
