After all, it's what got us here, combined with a lot of courage, a little rebellion and a lot of grit.

God Bless America.......

BTW mine was the XD 40 sub-compact. Take that King George. :D

Maybe I'll go down and buy my first 1911 today.

My local shop is closed today. But, I did buy a CZ-52 on Friday! It sure makes some fireworks!

Bought this.

Springfield Armory Mil-Spec 1911-A1

It is a bit out of my price range, but my dad gave me 400 towards it in exchange for me helping shingle his roof. (suprised me, I thought I was working gratis :D ) Can't wait to get it.

Built and shot my first AR over the last two days. A very happy Fourth indeed.

Picked up a K-31 on Friday, is that close enough?

Does sending a wretched Ruger to count?

I got a vintage Smith & Wesson Model 439 last week. Does that count? :p

Heck, I just bought a gun a couple of weeks ago, I can't go buying a new gun every damn holiday.

Or my wife would kill me with one of them. :D

I bought one Friday. Does that count?

I think it's a great idea....just wish I had thought of it earlier. :cuss:

I did buy 200rnds of .223 at the superhuge Bass Pro Shop in Concord yesterday, if that's any consolation. I also plan on shooting four rounds of 12 gauge this evening. I was going to fire 1,776 rounds of everything I have to celebrate, but that didn't work out. :D

Great way to support the industry and remember how we got to where we are.

I just bought a Glock 21 about 2 weeks ago and 400 rds of WWB .45 ACP yesterday.

I tried to wait until July 4th but I just could not do it. I am sorry but I just could not wait that long to pick up my new addition to the family.

I did*cough*...examine all my guns today. :D

I am very thankful I live in a Country and State that lets me do that.

Happy July 4th. (this may be a little late for those of you on the east coast).

I bought a Mosin Nagant 1891/30 today because it was cheap, it looked good, and because I could!
