What firearm did you buy this weekend???


April 30, 2013, 11:41 PM
I'll start off first... Feeding the addiction I went out and bought a Ruger

MKIII 22/45 LITE and a TS compensator to thread on the end:) 525 rounds

later I love it! Great gun, very accurate, super light, and a ton of fun to

shoot! I'm thinking of starting a club with my shooting buddies...GBA (Gun

Buyers Annonymous) Seems like we have been bitten by the bug pretty bad

here... I wonder what I will buy next weekend... Lol

There has to be more to this story.

Pretty common for a gun not to work for me, because of my small hands, so I don't hold it against it. I think a G19 would be much better for me.

First glock, decided to "drink the koolaid" and see if it was for me, and it wasn't. There were a lot of things I guess I liked about it, but it was nothing amazing, left me with a huge "Meh" feeling, and in the end I don't have big enough hands for that gun....maybe a G19.
I didn't even shoot it. Brother in law got it as a gift, because the only gun he has been able to afford ATM is a godawful hipoint....and he has much bigger hands than I have. I have pretty small hands. I could not even begin to operate the controls without doing a lot of grip shifting, and I literally could not drop the mag or use the slide release without using two hands.
I also could not hold the gun as solidly as I would like because of the akwardly big grip, and felt that controllability would suffer for me.
It made my USP .45 feel svelte.

On the plus side, I put a mint S&W 14-4 on layaway yesterday too.

With the price and scarcity of ammo these days about a month ago I started shooting my very old Daisy pump air rifle that I've had forever. I don't even know where I got it or when. This got me to thinking I might like to upgrade my air rifle to one of the break top high powered models and perhaps a pistol also. After doing a little research this is what I came up with.
First pic is the of the three I own. The top rifle is a Gamo Bone collector. Which they claim will shoot premium pellets 1300fps.(Very Accurate) That rifle is definitely not a toy. The pistol is a pump Crossman 1377 American Classic. 600 FPS. (accuracy isn't great but isn't bad either.) I'm still working on it.;) The bottom rifle is the older than dirt pump Daisy. A guess would be about 600/700fps and the one that got me back into shooting air rifles and pistols. Accuracy is expectable but know where near that of the rifled Gamo.
It might not be as much fun as shooting regular weapons but it better than nothing, and there extremely cheap to shoot and becoming more fun everyday. I can even shoot them in my house 38ft into a box in the garage filled with old denims without stinking the place up or the need for ear protection, and it keeps me in practice for when I shoot the live ammo. As they say when life hands you lemons ,make lemonade. ;-)

Glock 23. 5th handgun + 1st Glock = 1 new fan boy. Definitely my favorite handgun so far (although there are so many left to try!)

May 1, 2013, 06:29 PM
Went shopping for a 4" stainless GP100, but since they were out of stock, I opted for the SR1911 Commander instead (rather than return home with money still burning a hole in my pocket!).

May 1, 2013, 06:32 PM
No, it's a seagull flyover sh*tting exercise on Glock hate, that's all.

May 1, 2013, 07:23 PM
^^ ?
I don't get it

May 1, 2013, 08:40 PM
2 weekends ago, a Remington Rand 1911A1 from 1943, all correct parts, pic elsewhere on the forum.
Wife was pretty mad, but she got over it. Can't wait to do it again, either. If you ain't livin' on the edge, brother, you're takin' up too much space.:evil:

May 1, 2013, 09:19 PM
That's what I got too, new model blackhawk in .357. I got the 6.5".

My holy grail
LNIB colt anaconda 44 mag
took it to the range yesterday and it shot awesome
Love it will be with me until i die.

May 1, 2013, 09:52 PM
S&W SW99. There were some police trade-in's on Gunbroker and I managed to snag one for just a smidge under $300. Its still in transit to the FFL so I haven't held it yet, but I've wanted one for a while. I swear about 80% of the guns I end up buying are military/police trades. :)

May 1, 2013, 10:00 PM
Rossi Large loop 45colt lever gun and the weekend before it was a Ruger New Blackhawk 45colt/45acp convertible,i'm hoping to get a 45-70 lever gun next week.

Last weekend was no purchase. Today was a Glock 33 that I scored in a trade. Been wanting to fool with 357 sig for a while now.

Picked up a mint Smith model 10-6 with an extra set of grips for $260.00 OTD.
Really thought I'd catch hell when I got home, got a break, the dog didn't say a word.

May 2, 2013, 12:43 PM
Sig P250.

FFL should be receiving it today, I hope.

Couldn't get a 3" M10 so I bought a Henry.

Shield in 9mm. Very hard to come by in Cali, but I managed to get a NIB one from a LEO on a PPT.

XDS 45, love it.

May 3, 2013, 10:28 PM
Well, since it's only Friday, I'm going back to last weekend.
Used S&W M638.
My re-introduction to j-frames, after a 5-6 year absence.
First shooting session Wednesday evening reminded me why I sold them all...but I'm going to try and work through that. ;)

May 3, 2013, 11:46 PM
A Uberti Hombre in 357, a Sccy CPX2 and a used CZ75 Compact.

May 5, 2013, 01:22 AM
Old Winchester 94, 30-30. Nice action for 1968

May 6, 2013, 09:17 PM
Bought a Sig C3 on my way home from work Friday, 5/3.

May 6, 2013, 09:31 PM
I've been focused more on groceries lately.

May 6, 2013, 09:37 PM

I went to a gun show Saturday.

And I found a beater 1917 Colt with rust, no lanyard loop, & a broken grip for $950.

And a real nice Colt Woodsman Target for $750, with no box or paperwork.
Both were way overpriced by about 50% to 150%.

Other then that, the show was full of overpriced Combat Tupperware and over-priced old junk guns.

I'll just leave them to folks that don't know any better.


May 7, 2013, 02:41 AM
Just bought a Glock 19c today. I pick it up Thursday.

May 7, 2013, 10:21 PM

Do you have a witing period in Wisconsin?

May 7, 2013, 11:14 PM
I went out with the intent to buy a Ruger SR9c or Smith and Wesson M&P 40

went to three gun shops. Bass Pro hardly had any stock...and were more expensive than the next most expensive by $10 and more expensive than the least expensive by $40-$60. SR9c for $500 M&P 40 for $565 (yeah right Bass Pro)

The cheapest gun shop didn't have what I wanted, but their prices have gone up by $30 on most guns during the panic...I will just wait until the panic is over and hopefully prices drop. The M&Ps were $539 where they used to be $509. The only SR9c they had was $519, which was outrageous, but I could tell it was very different than the standard. I asked if it was a special edition and they said no, but when I got home I googled it and found out it is a Talo exclusive SR9c DLC. That shop normally sells the SR9c for $440.

The middle shop had TONS of inventory, and their normal prices...but were overpriced as always. $799 for Ruger SR1911s, $489 for SR9c, $554 for M&P 40

May 9, 2013, 05:44 AM

Do you have a witing period in Wisconsin?

Yes, 48 hours from the NICS call in.

May 11, 2013, 10:41 PM
Beretta PX 4 storm 45acp. It complements my beretta px4 storm compact in 9mm, my everyday carry is a S&W 632-2 with no lock and night sights, and my S&W 632 carry comp pro.

May 11, 2013, 11:31 PM
Just bought today this pre-War FN 1922. My newest obsession - bought 2 WWII waffenamt marked ones last weekend.


May 12, 2013, 01:20 AM
sr9c from grabagun. Should be at my ffl by next weekend. Ive had good luck with grabagun, and I feel their prices are fair.

May 12, 2013, 02:50 AM
Found a Colt New Service last week. It was marked as a 1950s Numrich .357 conversion.
Was supposedly a .455 originally.
Can't understand why anyone would convert one to .357, instead of .45 Colt or ACP.
It was loose as heck. It also didn't rotate the cylinder all the way to lockup, in DA or SA.
I can't help but think that .357 mag wasn't the ideal round to rechamber a revolver that old to.

May 12, 2013, 03:37 AM
Remington Nylon 66 and a Winchester M1897.

Technically it was a trade, but I got a Ruger SR1911 Commander....
