    most recent purchase: I took in an SKS on trade for a new rifle, since the sks was used I took it out back and shot it off the bench. Not very accurate but I liked it enough to "book-it" to myself ;) with commie junk ammo getting 4 moa..
    at least it is not a stamped receiver :barf: but those Saigas are nice rifles, sold a bunch without complaints

    Stamped receiver SKS rifles are exceptioally rare and quite valuable. Last on I had sold several years ago for $800 within minutes of putting it on our site.

    Personally, I prefer the Albanian ones, just 'cos they are different looking.

    yes sir, I understand the stamped SKS is rare and therefore more valuable, I just have a dislike for rolled & stamped sheet metal receivers

    Recently picked up an LCR-22 at a good price. I'm learning to like it. It's no beauty but it's light, rugged, accurate, and the heavy trigger is starting to lighten up a bit.

    Fills a role as a casual plinker, light woods gun, trainer for new shooters, etc. I wouldn't feel unarmed with 8 rounds of CCI SGB in the cylinder.

    Picked up two on same day, last Wednesday. First was a Dixie Gun Works .45cal Black Powder Derringer. An hour later I bought a 1969 C series Belgian Browning Hi-Power.

    Don't have pictures with me but I picked up a 1942 Izhevsk 91/30 last week from Big 5 before vacation. It is sitting in my safe, awaiting my return to clean and shoot it.

    Question--Do you mean you bought a Colt manufactured in 1977 or that was the year you last bought a gun? I tried to determine this by looking at your second pic but I have to plead 'ignorance' on that one as I am not sure of its origin? If the answer is the former please pass along your secret for such discipline as I have been like a woman at Macy's of late relative to my 'hardware' acquisitions :uhoh:.

    That Colt Python is an classic beauty! I have always wanted one. Coincidentally, there's another thread somewhere on THR about movies that may have 'helped' prompt one to buy a gun. Someone replied that ironically when they saw "Magnum Force" they were subsequently compelled not to go out and buy Dirty Harry's Iconic S&W Model 29 but the Colt .357 Python carried by the corrupt cop (I believe played by David Soul?).

    Hey Cokeman: It's friggin great BECAUSE, IMO it has a better trigger than a Walther PPQ,lower bore axis(less felt recoil) than a Glock(or anything) and it conceals better than a Walther PPQ,FNS-9 or a Glock 19 which is the three I was originally trying to decide between.

    ^This is coming from the biggest Kool-Aid drinker around.

    Oh, and it's a hundred bucks cheaper than the others(not that it matters when you're buying something that could possibly be life and/or death).

    The only drawback is the lack of availability after market accessories.This purchase was one that would remain stock anyway,except maybe some Dawson Precision sights.

    Is that better?:D
