    Okay, we are officially through the first week of the new year. Knowing the compulsive nature of most of us, let's admit it, how many of us have already purchased, or made plans to purchase, a new gun?
    I wasn't planning to, but I put away a nice, used, Ruger P95 the other day. The real scary thing is, there is a gun show in Joplin,Mo the 14th and 15th and a friend wants me to go with him.
    Your turn, 'fess up.

    The Smith & Wesson 945 is still being paid for that is all I am doing until it is paid off. I did find a great deal on a Marlin Goose gun 12 Ga. 36 inch barrel but I can't do it until the 945 is paid off. Maybe I will get lucky later in the year. :( :rolleyes: ;) :D ;)

    Haven't the money for a new purchase now. That's why I'm sitting out a gunshow in Nampa, Id. today, only 14 miles away.

    Dang IT!

    The C note my wife put in my new wallet she got me for Xmas (along with my new NRA card when she reupped me without me knowing!) "because SOG didn't sell gift certificates" lasted until Dec 29th...a "correct" M38 was just WAITING for me at a local Gunshop...













    ...Now I'm wondering how I can somehow con ANOTHER C note out of her for next weekend's Indy 1500 show....













    GOSH it's hell to be out of collection money AND have nothing but "keepers" left in the collection...



















    I feel SO dirty.... :p

    Just before the end of the year I got a FN-FAL. It is a Enterprise rifle from Stg58 parts with a 18" barrel. Very sweet shooting, and easy to carry.

    Put money down on a HK P7 today. Will pick it up in 2 weeks. Got two Ruger Acusport .357 Bisleys with my name on them when they fnally are available and a HK P2000sk likely in March. After that... :confused:
  9. Well . . . don't tell the wife, but I do have my eye on a nice Glock 26 that's just begging me to take him home and feed him. :D

    Went to a gun show on Saturday, and saw a Bauska barrelled and built High Wall, too cheap, in .225 Win; too cheap was still more than I could afford; the (98%) High Standard Sharpshooter, back in the corner, though, isn't there, anymore. It came home with me.
    I just can't stand to see such work sitting on a table, like so much liver, when it could be making people (ME) happy!
    When I die, I'll certainly be near to broke, but the kids will have to put on a three day auction, just for the 'toys'. Y'all come!

    That's a good looking gun Blackhawk. I got my new P95 home last night. It was sold to me as used, and there is powder residue in the chamber, but the warrenty card is still there. It doesn't look like it was used much. It's raining today, hopefully I can shoot it tomorrow.

    thanks the frame is a N.M. Springfield serial number 27XX, really does have 4 digits, it has a 4 digit colt government slide, the whole pistol was tricked out and hard chromed at accurate plating and weaponry in hialeah fla., shoots very well, but sure is a lot of fun with the 22 on it.
