Hi Everyone....Although we have a few hours left!...It seems that the calculations were wrong again!

I say that is the way with Math! Sometimes the numbers get lost when you adding and carrying and dividing and all! :rolleyes:

But I am happy as of now....for below is a picture of Todays...

Why buy a gun? I figured if the rapture actually happened I would just go and round up all the free guns I wanted. What a surprise, it didn't happen.

Nice shooter. I didn't buy a gun but I bought some Ruger scope rings.

Cool! Supplies should count too! :)

I had been wanting one of these for a while, and got a good deal locally.
I would still like the 6" version, but this will fit a present need.

I looked at an SP101 but they wanted more for it than the GP100!

Went to an auction that advertised a bunch of guns today, but I'm too much of a cheapskate to pay auction prices ($400 for a well used, and scratched, Henry Golden Boy?:eek:) The one bargain was a WWII era Model 94 30 WCF in about 95% condition that went for $575. Nice gun at a good price, but not something I really need or want.

I did pick up some ammo though.

that says something about obama when people will run out and buy guns when he got elected...........but not when the end of the world was supposed to happen... :D

I bought a couple of guns. The first was an Inland M1 Carbine with barrel markings for 9 of 1944. It looks to be fully original based on the sources I have but I am certainly no expert. That gun will go in on Tuesday for an evaluation. The other gun was a Winchester 1876 in 45/60. Serial number says made in 1881 and it is either a late Second Model or an early Third. I saw it for sale at a garage sale 3-4 weeks ago but could not swing the funds then. I stopped by a couple of times once I scrounged up the cash but no one was home. Last night they had another sale and the gun was still there. He knocked a couple hundred off the price and I grabbed it quick. It is in good shape and as soon as I get the OK from the gunsmith, I'll make up some loads and shoot it. It may not be a Rapture gun but it is one I really like.

I built a coil-gun in my basement to prepare.

Some say a magnetically energised projectile is capable of penetrating the light of a soul(AT Field anyone?). Ya know... just in case they tried to take me.

Looks like crap but is "dangerous" within 10ft :rolleyes:

Heck no. I bought pikes. The Four Horsemen dont stand a chance against pikes.

Really though, I do know what the Four Horsemen are. Parochial high school....

Cool, What did you get? I just used it for a reason!...works with the wife pretty good too!:D
oldbear No, why would I if the world is going to end before I can shoot it?
Aw! I feel certain markmanship and the hobby lasts past this world! :)
Sig88 No I did not. One of the times it didn't even cross my mind.
Any reason will do for me! Wife says Hon...do we have enough guns? I always say no ...not really...we could use a _________ (fill in the blank).."well lets go look at them then! OK :D

This is really sad. I forgot the world was gonna end and got out early to clean the gutters and put up gutter guard. If I had remembered I could have done a bunch of fun things.

No, just the quality of the people doing it.

No guns for me today.

I woke up early this morning and bought a set of tires for one of the cars. I would have been highly annoyed if the world had ended right after buying new tires...

Well, I bought a Kahr CW 45 today for concealed carry. My Glock 21 seemed a little large, and the Kahr shoots real nice! I'm happy!

will do you any good, when that day and time arrives. GOD is great, he will
look out for all those who believe~! :)

Not me either. The thought never crossed my mind. Maybe if I did, I could sue that guy for the cost of the gun that I bought in preparation for his doomsday event. People shouldn't say stuff like this unless they are willing to accept the consequences.

I did not know yesterday was the end of the world till last night. just another nut case claiming the end is near. Oopps still here. Guess we are all ok till the next nut case tells us the end is near.

I bought an old Chinese SKS 56 on Saturday and the guy selling it asked me if I wanted it because of the rapture, stating that he himself bought the rifle right before Y2K, lol.

I did buy a gun on Friday, but not because the end was nigh. Hi Point JHP .45 pistol.

I bought an older, steel-framed Para-Ordnance P12 Friday evening. The "end of the world" mattered less than the simple fact that I'd been looking for one for a while now, and the price and condition were right.

As this is Sunday afternoon, I'm guessing that I'll be able to enjoy it until the end of the world as described in the Mayan calendar in December, 2012.:D

I disagree, I went to a wedding yesterday. He knew his time was up.

To answer your question, No. Although, I did call the gunstore to see if they had any trade in 870's in stock that I could pick up this week.

I bought a RIA 1911 CS last weekend, and spent most of the day yesterday shooting it and a few other firearms with great friends. :) I figured that I might as well spend the day doing something that I enjoy.

Sold one, bought one.

Had a CZ 712 shotgun that had always given me trouble. Took a heavy loss on that one, but I got rid of it this Friday.

Then yesterday while browsing at another pawn shop I saw a Rossi single shot .270 Win/20 ga combo for sale. I don't know if they just wanted to get rid of it or if it was mismarked, but it was marked $80. Now I don't need it - I've already got a nice Winchester Mod 70 .270 (and a Rossi in .308), but the price was certainly too good to pass up. My brother has been yearning for something with a bit more reach than his .30-30, and his birthday is in a month, so I snagged it as a birthday gift for him.

It was coincidental to the 'rupture weekend', but I bought a S&W N-frame .44 Mag (a PRE-29) built in 1956 or 7 in 95% shape! Happy me!

So I pulled On Call duty and figured I would load ammo until something happened. Well I ran out of boolits before anything else happened and went to bed digesting the prices and deals that I needed to figure out to place an order for more the next day. :D

It passed without me even knowing about it. Not good for a preacher. At least when it does happen I'll regain the sight in my right eye. But if I reach for my gun and all I have is the old Jennings .22 I sold to a "friend" years ago.........I'll know I'm in the wrong place.

I picked up a Schmidt Rubin 96/11 at a gun show on "our last day." No one seemed to be thinking about our supposed mortal peril. Needless to say, it was a pretty good day.

No. I sold the Mini 30 a few weeks ago.

Were the scalpers offering the same good deals they offered after the election in '08?

These must be really hungry times for some scalpers.

Nope... was on an airplane returning from a cruise. Actually in the air at 6:00pm EST, when the Rapture was supposed to unfold.
"At 38,00 feet" I mused "I'll probably be the first into Heaven or the last into Hell"

(To keep this post somewhat gun related, I edited together a video of the cruise, with an intro featuring a tracking shot of every cartridge I own)
