It's finally home...
 
3 Attachment(s)
Well, after more than 6 months, almost $400 in shipping fees and innumerable headaches, I finally have the PTRD-41 anti-tank rifle I bought before coming to Afghanistan. For perspective, I'm leaving in less than a month.

As you can see, it's huge! My father is not a tall man, but it's a good picture of the size and weight of the thing. The gun cabinet is full of my WW1 German and Finnish rifles - meaning Mosin-Nagants with 31" barrels and Mausers / Gewehr 88s with 29" barrels. Not small rifles. As you can see, storage is gonna be an issue.

It must be a pain to get ammo for it. Nice rifle

Nyles 04-11-2010 01:14 PM

I've got 15 rounds. Too bad I can't bring ammo home, there's lots of it over here.

Good for you Nyles, thatīs a huge baby :D

15 is never enough. I don't care if the gun can destroy the whole universe with one shot, it's still not enough

Have you shot it yet?

Nyles 04-12-2010 07:37 AM

Actually, at $40 a pop, I think 15 rounds is a pretty reasonable number to have.

And no, I haven't shot it. Because I'm still in Afghanistan.

I bet you can't wait though

Oh, definately. Gotta find somewhere with an appropriate backstop though.

That's gonna be a bitch. Congrats on the badass cannon though. Hopefully it won't take your arm off
