    I am looking to buy a scale to weigh my guns, barrels, stocks, etc. I have seen some postal scales that were not too expensive. What would you recommend?

    Get a digital fish weight scale. You can put odd stuff in a plastic bag. I weighed my entire gun from one of the spaces in my rib.

    I got one off ebay that will weigh up to 75# for next to nothing. It is a postal scale. It works great, small and battery powered and accurate.

    Get on your bathroom scale(assuming you have one) and weigh yourself. Get off, and get back on with your gun. Subtract the sifference and you have your gun weight. Didn't cost you a penny. Bulge.

    Digital food scale- it was probably 25 bucks

    If you are married you can take credit for buying it for the spouse

    I just used mine again this morning

    cheap- less than 20 bucks on ebay

    regards from Iowa
