Driving from the SF Bay Area to Fresno tomorrow ( & back in the evening)
Are there any worthwhile Gun Shops to visit, ones that might have more C&R stuff?

Haven't been in either for some years but Mayfields used to have C&R and John McCormick's Guns and Ammo specialized in older weapons and had a huge selection. Don't know if it's the same though. Glock and Black Rifles seem to be the weapons of choice here.

Cruised by McCormicks.
They had a couple Bubba C&R's.
Had a decent LE # 5 Jungle carbine for $399
Had a LE, Unissued #4 for $500. Beautiful rifle.

Hope to check out Mayfields later today.

What pray tell coerced you to come visit Fresno? To quote one of my favorite t-shirts, "Fresno: it really does suck here" lol. JK, it's not all THAT bad, at least we can get LTC. :)

That's funny Bruce, I was down there yesterday. I had to drive to Hanford for a site visit, ended up going to Tulare because I saw a store on the map that might have some C&Rs. Stopped in and didn't see anything, guy at the counter said they don't deal in old rifles but sometimes they get Garands and they go for $2,000!!! I asked "gee, why would someone pay that much when you can get one from the CMP?" and he started in telling me how difficult it is... <smh>

I made it up to a place in Selma and they had a bubba-fied Savage-made No 4 MkI chopped off at the knees and slathered in poly for $225 and a greasy Mosin he lovingly called "Cosmolina". Real nice people at the shop, btw.

At that point it was too late as most shops were closing so I headed home and bypassed Frizno.

Not exactly in the Fresno area, but if your ever near Stockton the Stockton Gun Exchange had some nice C&Rs last time I was in there. Off the top of my head I remember seeing a few Mausers, Arisakas, and 2 Krags.
