Fayetteville TN? yeah, i was there today infact. Its really nice here, but all the fields are turning into houses. I like it...but theres just not much to do out here...

Im trying to get a rifle, and i need to make my mind up between a SMLE Mk3 or a Yugoslavian M48A (a yugo K98K).

Why those two...may I ask? Is this going to be your first rifle?

Yeah, Which ever i grab will be my first, and thats even before .22's

Only reason those, is because a friend of mine's dad has got a bunch (a collector died, and they are selling them off) of rifles, and they are really cheap. The Enfield is only 150, thats lower than a decent 22, and the Mauser is 100.

I figure, I can get a 22 anytime, i cant get something like this this cheap ever again.

I think Mausers are more common from what I was hearing from a friend on mine in Colorado when I asked him about this a few minutes ago...he thought the bargain was more with the Lee Enfield
