Not sure what I'm getting, but I know what I bought myself!
...an XD45 tactical the other day. NICE GUN
December 24, 2006, 08:55 PM
I've been wanting another good .22 revolver, so I picked up a used S&W Model 18 this week. 4", six-shot, blued, P&R'd, nice. With box and papers and a decent holster.
December 24, 2006, 09:00 PM
The M-18...they don't make them like that anymore. Finding a nice one is great fortune.
December 24, 2006, 09:01 PM
I bought myself a brand spanking new Marlin 336 in .30-30. It fills a hole in my collection that can only be filled by a lever gun in that caliber. My collection felt incomplete without one.
I feel much better now.

got rid of one pistol, two shotguns & mini 14, picked up Tarus 24/7 in .40, Kel-tec P-11 & first EBR- Double Eagle M4gery. Stuff I wasn't using for stuff I was want'in. Merry Christmas to all.

Actually just got home with some of it . A new pistol case and rifle case . Both from my dad . Really nice cases and really suprised he got them for me . Usually it's a gift card and "get what you want" . Needless to say , will always have these 2 cases .
Lol missread title thread . missed the "for you" part .

My first K31 should be here Tuesday along with 200 rounds of ammo. Jim.
December 24, 2006, 10:40 PM
Well, I got a Ciener .22 conversion kit for 1911s, and I got an old Beretta model 948 on layaway, another $75 and it's mine, and a friend found a set of crimson trace grips (LG 305) for a hundred bucks, used, and will sell them in turn to me for same.
This is all in one trip to the gun store, by the way. :uhoh:
Usually I'm pretty frugal, but I really wanted a conversion kit, and the prices on the other two items were too good to pass up.
December 24, 2006, 11:05 PM
What are you, getting you, for X-mas?
December 24, 2006, 11:12 PM
Well, to answer your question I picked up a solid 96 per cent factory
nickel COLT Lawman Mk-III with a 2" barrel. According to ProofHouse.
com the serail number places its DOB as 1976. Price was right too,
$225 OTD. It makes a nice addition to all three of my COLT D-frames.
BTW, I will try to have pics posted shortly after Christmas Day.

Yes giving is better than receiving, but if you can do both at once - why not! So yes I biught myself some Christmas gifts. First off I picked up a bottle of Glenlivet, tha came packaged with two rocks glasses engraved with the Glenlivet name. Then I picked myself up a bottle of jagermeister with a pewter shot glass that looks like a deer's head - very nice. Finally, I picked up a large sized Lava Lamp. So when i chill out with the Scotch or the jagermeister, I can watch something totally mind numbing:cool:to help enhance the effects of the booze.

I didn't intend getting anything but I stopped in the local small gun store for a coffee and to shoot the bull. As I came in the manager said, "Have I got something to show you".
I left with a National Match Rock Island Arms AR and a Skyy 9mm.:)
December 25, 2006, 12:19 AM
Rohrbaugh R9S, two holsters for it and some ammo to run thru it.
December 25, 2006, 10:58 AM
I just bought a 24in heavy barrel for my Winchester Varmint Rifle Project from e-bay.
December 25, 2006, 10:59 AM
I'm thinking about stocking up on some cheap guns, just to up my numbers... I'm thinking SKS, Mosin Nagant and a Hi-Point carbine. I still come out for under half the price for an AR and I have 3 times the guns.
December 25, 2006, 11:01 AM
Santa brought me a minty K31 with a Beech stock and 20 rounds of Wolf 7.5/55.
Well, not minty, the stock needed some cleaning up but it is in fine shape with just a few beauty marks.
December 25, 2006, 11:26 AM
I must have been naughty this year. :evil:
December 25, 2006, 12:13 PM
I...umm...yeah my ammo dump increased 3x fold.:neener:
December 25, 2006, 12:33 PM
Lee turrett press setup, kel-tec 2000 in 9mm with the G17 magazines, and remote car starter...
I "asked" for the Stauer watch that is usually seen taking up a full page near the rear cover of 1st freedom every other month. Wow, its super nice.
December 25, 2006, 12:41 PM
Santa is usually me, but he bought an old Mauser carbine off Auction Arms and a Swede off Gunbroker. Both yesterday. The Mauser is the same caliber as the handloads for my deer rifle.
You guys are going to like those K31s. And Merry Christmas to anyone who owns a gun.
December 25, 2006, 12:43 PM
A Dan Wesson RZ-10.
December 25, 2006, 12:48 PM
PT-92 9MM First Handgun
I was good this year:evil:
December 25, 2006, 12:51 PM
I'm buying a watch, a small Brown Mule knife, a Camilius US knife and some 9mm and .223 ammo.
December 25, 2006, 01:13 PM
I ordered a 5" Wilson Protector pistol with stainless frame and black side and also a Mark Garrity holster for it. Hope to get the pistol by early Feb and the holster by mid April. They may be my birthday gifts instead of Christmas gifts.
A Burris fullfield 3x9-40 and two Pentax light seeker 3x9-50 scopes.
December 25, 2006, 01:26 PM
Picked up another 5K in 9mm [makes 14K on hand ] , 3K in 7.62 for the SKS's [ makes 8K on hand ], 2K in 45acp [ makes it 5K on hand ] along with an Arsenal Bulgarian AK and 5 more 30 rd mags in the last week.
December 25, 2006, 01:33 PM
A beautiful brand-new 686+!
December 25, 2006, 02:45 PM
I don't know. But I will be visiting the shop on Tuesday ... My plan is "no plan"
, just whatever strikes my impulsive fancy at the moment ....
Too many out of the blue costs right now to contend with. Guns will take back seat for a time being.
Happy with what I have now though.
I did splurge on a brand spanking new Ruger Mark III Hunter .22lr.
My Lord it is sweet.
December 25, 2006, 03:37 PM
I wanted a 22 semi-auto that you don't see
everyday,i ended up with a S&W 422,NIB
for $300.00.I also put a S&W 3914 ladysmith
on layaway,all papers but no box in near new
condition for $350.00.
December 25, 2006, 03:40 PM
Oh god the list is long.
Christmas present directly will probably be a CZ97b.
For a new years gift I think I will get an M1a Standard
As for a birthday present in February I think a new SA GI .45 OD.
And somewhere in between christmas and new years I am adding an 870p to the list.
December 25, 2006, 03:52 PM
went a little overboard this time. heres the list:
M1A Socom 16
Rainier arms sling for the socom
1000 rounds of 9mm and a few rounds of .308
The Wilderness instructor belt
and a reloading manual from amazon
i spent way too much money but, cant say it wasnt worth it. ;)
December 25, 2006, 04:11 PM
Felt like my knife collection was far to small (they always are) so I'm going to be adding a Benchmade Griptilian this weekend. Plus, if I can find one locally, a Ruger GP-100 4inch. Heading to a gun show this weekend to pick one up.
December 25, 2006, 05:05 PM
Not exactly for Christmas, I've had it for about a month now, but that's close enough!!
