How many guns have you purchased in the last 2.5 weeks?


December 22, 2008, 12:33 AM
I've been waiting 2.5 weeks so far for my NY paperwork to come through before I can pick up my new pistol.

If you live in a free state, how many pistols have you picked up since I filed my paperwork on 12/4?

More than I should have.

If the wife finds out, I am a dead man.:evil:

December 22, 2008, 12:38 AM
Lets see... we have bought 2 1911s, one Match and one compact, picked up a .44 snubby, and I put a payment in on my S&W Model 22 Thunder Ranch... so far.
Thats 2 for me... 2 for the wife... and I have my eye on a nice .44 snubby for myself. :D


December 22, 2008, 12:38 AM

A phone call the "the man" and it was mine. :)

December 22, 2008, 12:41 AM
I got one just this past week, a XD9SC.

December 22, 2008, 12:45 AM
Ive just bought two in the last two days.

December 22, 2008, 12:50 AM
I bought a 24/7 Compact in .40 and a SP101 2.25" in .357mag for me. The other half is getting a P95 for Christmas.

December 22, 2008, 12:52 AM
Exactly two and a half, I'm waiting on one to come in the mail.

December 22, 2008, 12:53 AM
ruger LCP
NAA Guardian .32 ACP


Next is a big revolver, I really don't own a good HD gun right now. I will probably have that in house too before your paperwork is cleared.

model of 1905
December 22, 2008, 12:57 AM
Just 1 but its a good one, S&W 1911 model 108295.

December 22, 2008, 12:57 AM
how many pistols have you picked up since I filed my paperwork on 12/4?

1. desert eagle, brushed chrome, 50 ae.
2. browning buckmark slabside, 22 lr.
3. beretta m9 navy, 9mm

then, on the 24th, i'm hoping to work a deal on a para p-14 and colt python... those aren't done deals yet, so i don't know if they will happen or not. but the other 3 have happened within the last 6 days or so.

December 22, 2008, 01:00 AM
None. As much as it pains me to admit it, I have more than I need already. Oh well, I can think of much worse fates to bear....My last purchase was a like new Ruger Mark 2 semi auto with 4 inch heavy barrel. Couldn't pass it up (an affliction many of us share) for the $150 asking price.

December 22, 2008, 01:02 AM
Forgot to mention. The Mark 2 Ruger purchase was in August....

December 22, 2008, 01:08 AM
Bought a 442. One call and 15 minutes later I was the new owner to a 442 :D Do they have a right to turn down your permit in NY for no reason?

December 22, 2008, 01:16 AM
4, all brownings

2 at two different times.

the 1st time was 2 browning buckmark camper auto pistols, 1 for me and 1 for my brother as a gift.

we liked them so much i just went back a few days ago and got 2 more for a total of 4.

1 for me
1 for my brother
1 for my son for christmas
1 for my brother in law for christmas.

also bought 120 dollars worth of extra magazines and 2000 rounds of plinkin' ammo.

...I have more than I need...

Need? :evil:

Who said anything about "need"? :D:D:D

Sheesh, if I had stopped there...well, let's just say that I would have had to stop long, long ago. :)

That's just too dang funny.... :)

December 22, 2008, 09:36 AM
One, a Caesar Guerini shotgun.

Several. I have been on a stock up mode for many months now.

I will probably get at least one more before the end of the week.

December 22, 2008, 11:01 AM
One; S&W Model 36 (no hypen); circa 1971

December 22, 2008, 11:27 AM
none, for one reason first and foremost i haven't given into the "scare" secondly i don't have the money for any new ones right now, well i do but i would rather buy ammo for the guns that i already have and attend training courses.

Just One Shot
December 22, 2008, 11:53 AM
Past 2 1/2 weeks - 1 Bersa Thunder .380

Past few months total - 3

Gee... I haven't bought any. :(

But I am on the lookout. :cool:

Living in Arizona does have some advantages. No permits, no registration (it's against the law), and no waiting period. Just walk into the shop and walk out with your purchase. Of course there are some drawbacks. Making things this easy can cause some unexpected debits on one's credit card.

Oh, and it doesn't snow to often either... :evil:

Now I do realize that I'm rubbing your nose in it, and I do feel sorry for those that live in places like New York, California, Chicago, Washington DC, etc., but there isn't much I can do about it. Hopefully the recent Heller decision from the Supreme Court will eventually bring some positive changes, but I believe it will take a long time so far as New York's concerned.

But look at it this way. Things could be worse. What if you lived in Washington DC or Chicago - not to mention N.Y. City? :uhoh:

December 22, 2008, 12:10 PM
I bought one, a Ruger NM Blackhawk in .41 Magnum.
It's got the four and five eighths inch barrel.

I've thought about some more but haven't done anything about them.

December 22, 2008, 03:22 PM
Okay, I admit I haven't bought any in your specific time frame.

However, just before that I bought a Ruger P95, S&W 642, Ruger Mark 1, and a H&R 929 revolver within a two week period.

December 22, 2008, 03:25 PM
none but looking

December 22, 2008, 03:31 PM

But then I've been at this for a few years.

December 22, 2008, 03:38 PM
although I live in California, I realize that some people in other states have it slightly worse off. Although I don't need to get gov't approval, I can only get one handgun per 30 days and I've done that already with a colt series 80 gov't (I would have got the series 70 but the gov't doesn't want me to have it!). However, long guns is unlimited and I've gotten three mosin nagants, an 870 with synthetic stock and a Rock River. I'm most excited about the Rock River, it's my first AR and unfortunately I didn't start until after the craze.

December 22, 2008, 09:22 PM
Last gun I bought was Oct 1st, and that was a used 642. Last new gun I bought was back in August.

Nothing really striking me as of now, Id consider buying an AR if I could find a decent one where the price wasnt through the roof like they seem to have gone since Nov 4.

I did order 2K rounds of 9mm.

December 22, 2008, 09:41 PM
I have got a Nighthawk Talon, S&W Model 27, S&W 629, and a Remy Shotty. Not sure if I will keep the shotty because I am not a big shotty guy but it was part of a deal.

December 23, 2008, 07:36 AM
None since the election.

December 23, 2008, 08:09 AM
Two. I'm concerned about the impending "assult weapon" ban.
They are: '86 Winchester, '71 Winchester.

December 23, 2008, 11:59 AM
One, but it wasn't from a dealer and was just a .22 pistol.


December 23, 2008, 12:03 PM
Two, both older double action Colts and both from dealers.

December 23, 2008, 12:07 PM
Getting a Ruger Mark III for Christmas!!! :D

December 23, 2008, 12:10 PM
More than I should have.
If the wife finds out, I am a dead man.
This is 100% correct. Just got a BFR in 500 after I said no more untill after the new hardwood floors have been finished, oooops Must have forgot:uhoh:

Does trading count? It seems I've been addicted to trading firearms recently.

In the last 2 weeks I've trade away 5 and received back 4. Double that number over the last couple months. I've lost some value on a couple, made up for it on others, but overall I don't really care. I like new-to-me things and trading is a great way to do it without breaking the bank.

December 23, 2008, 05:39 PM
4 with one on the way

Sig 226 .40
December 23, 2008, 11:51 PM
Just one...A S&W Mdl. 59 Devel Full House 9mm. Oh, and then there was that nice little KelTec P11. (okay Agent J...I cheated...I used my badge and then registered them with a "C" form)

December 24, 2008, 03:14 AM
Two. An AR lower that was ordered in August came in and I picked up a used DW 1911 CBOB while I was at the gunshop.

December 24, 2008, 04:52 AM
I sold one does that count?

December 24, 2008, 05:42 AM
More than one.

And then there was that tragic ice fishing accident. oooopppps:rolleyes:

December 24, 2008, 07:23 AM

December 24, 2008, 11:12 AM
Two cheap pocket KelTec's a .32 and a .380 for Xmas gifts. Two for the less than the cost of a LCP.

December 24, 2008, 11:17 AM
2. Glock 32C and Sig 229 DAK

December 24, 2008, 11:47 AM
Two. I'm concerned about the impending "assult weapon" ban.
They are: '86 Winchester, '71 Winchester.

Well then I suggest you look into assault weapons then......


December 24, 2008, 12:12 PM
Oh my. A NAA .22 mag mini revolver. A NAA Black Widow .22LR. NAA Black Widow .22 magnum (layaway). Colt Detective 3rd Series. Taurus Tracker Titanium .357 (layaway). Colt Detective 2nd Series (layaway). I think my Raging Bull 454 may fit in that time frame as well.

December 24, 2008, 01:03 PM
I heard Obama was going to put .22LR lever guns at the top of his 'ban list', so I ran out and got a Henry H001T. Whew, just in time. :rolleyes:

December 24, 2008, 03:34 PM
Only one... a pre-converted Sig 226 in 22lr. I am now on a 22lr bender since I won't be shooting my centerfire stockpile until the current administrative threat is gone. The next one will be a single shot Marlin 22 bolty.

December 24, 2008, 03:45 PM
2.5 weeks? One.

2.5 years? Well, oh my......

December 24, 2008, 10:26 PM
Just one .. A Wilson Protector!

December 24, 2008, 10:40 PM
I bought the following:

Savage 12 F-Class in 6mmbr. New
Remingtom 870 HD like new.
Ruger Mini 30 lightly used
Saiga 7.62x39 like new
Ruger LCP New:evil::evil::evil::evil::evil:

December 25, 2008, 02:57 AM
Purchased in the last month:

1 - Smith & Wesson SW40VE
1 - Walther P22
1 - Smith & Wesson M&P40
1 - Ruger LCP .380

December 25, 2008, 03:10 AM
In the last month a Colt Commander, and in the last two weeks an Ultra Carry II.

If my girlfriend finds out about the UCII, she's going to kill me. Let's just say she was VERY angry when she came with me to the gunshop and the Colt left with us! Worst part is that there was a jewelry shop right next door..lmao!

Guns are so freakin' addictive! I need help (or a better job)!!

December 25, 2008, 07:23 AM
One ... if you count my wife buying it for me for Christmas :)

December 25, 2008, 07:25 AM
Seven in the last 6 weeks. 1 in the last 2.5 weeks. Ran out of stuff to buy... right... next gun purchase scheduled for end of the month.

December 25, 2008, 07:26 AM
I am thinking that lotto winner would be a perfect job for CPshooter. Money to buy guns and time to shoot.

December 25, 2008, 07:28 AM
Hmmm... .the Ruger LCP seems very popular. good thing I got mine.

December 25, 2008, 09:38 AM
4 in the last month. A Dan Wesson CBOB. A S&W M67- no dash W/ Stainless sights. A S&W M&P 40C and the one I'm picking up tomorrow, A S&W 627 PC.:)

Sig saint
December 25, 2008, 04:16 PM
Two... Glock 19 and Sig 229 Elite Stainless

December 25, 2008, 04:18 PM
Springfield TRP Operator and HK USP45 Tactical, not to mention a good friend sold me the USP45 Tactical for 500 bucks with under 350 rounds through it :)

December 26, 2008, 12:13 AM
1. SOCOM 16
2. Benelli M4
3. Romanian Tokarev (poor man's FN 5-7)

December 26, 2008, 02:12 AM
1. SOCOM 16
2. Benelli M4
3. Romanian Tokarev (poor man's FN 5-7)

That's at least $4,000 in guns. Doesn't seem like the economy is suffering that badly does it?

December 26, 2008, 03:00 AM
Well, I bought the Romanian Tokarev after I bought the M4 and SOCOM 16 because I became poor... :(

December 26, 2008, 03:44 AM
If it takes $3,500 to become poor, you are pretty ahead of a lot of people.

Gracian's Hero
December 27, 2008, 12:50 AM
1...with hopefully another one arriving next month

December 27, 2008, 01:43 PM
Well not because of Obama, but couldn't pass up on near perfect condition CZ-75 (pre b) at a gun show a couple weeks ago. I'd been looking for one forever in this condition. It is dated 87 on the slide.

Zach S
December 27, 2008, 06:52 PM
I've purchased every gun I could afford since November 5th... None.

I have bought a few magazines though, when I could find them...

December 27, 2008, 07:50 PM
Just bought a Glock 21sf today. Took maybe 5 mins to do the paper work now I am at home playing with it.

December 27, 2008, 08:09 PM
I hate you and your instant check system. How dare you guys take your guns home that same day! Don't you know Sacramento said it is dangerous to let people take their guns home right away? Why are other parts of the country safer than California? I don't get it. The politicians are never wrong!

December 27, 2008, 10:39 PM
I'm trying to slow down, so, the answer would be "one". I picked up a RIA compact 1911 and put CT grips on it.

Don't you know Sacramento said it is dangerous to let people take their guns home right away?

Well, I've taken, let's just say a number of guns, home over the last year and a half the same day I bought them and I've experienced no trouble at this juncture.

December 27, 2008, 11:01 PM
Sarcasm was lost in this crowd...

December 28, 2008, 01:32 AM
Two....A Sig Sauer P6 ($399), and a Ruger 10/22 Carbine ($240) em both, and sorry to hear about your oppression up in New York....have a good holiday season anyway!!

December 28, 2008, 04:50 AM
Good to know that Ruger 10/22 prices around the country is pretty similar. That's one gun we're not being ripped off on in Kommiefornia.

December 28, 2008, 07:14 AM
only 1.NZ-85B Norinco made CZ-85B
