NIB Ruger Mini-14. Ran 100 rounds through it Saturday. Runs like a champ. Never missed the target (only shooting around 50 and 60 yards).

CMP Service Grade M1 Garand. No cosmo on the metal, some wear on the parkerizing. Stock could use some cleaning. Very pleased. Gotta find an excuse and some time to get out to the wife's family's ranch to open it up proper.

Mossy 930 spx. What a sweet little auto loader. Sending the barrel off to aimpro to lengthen the forcing cone with a internal barrel polish and cut some threads for a turkey choke. Should be an awesome shooter.

Let the laughter begin!!!

I actually sought out and bought a Sears J.C. Higgins bolt action 12/g shotgun! LOL

The good news is, I only had to give $50 for it. :-)

I had one of those as a kid.

Just curious - why did you want it?

My grandfather had one.
When I was big enough, he basically turned me loose with it.
There's no telling how many 1,000's of shells went through it and how much food my grandmother cooked up.
I became very proficient/fast with that bolt action.

The B.S. got to flowing the other day, and I started in with the "when I was a kid...."

So..... (A) I wanted one for old times sake.
(B) I'm wanting to hit the Skeet Field with it as well. I can't wait to hear the "snobs" when I show up and actually shoot a decent round! LOL

They are pretty cool old shotguns. They are tube fed magazines like the 870's & such. They will flip a shell in there as fast as you can cycle the bolt :-)

I suspected it may have come from some fond memories from your past.

I personally think that that is cool

I bought a Glock 23 and still breaking it in. I shot my brother-in-laws Kimber last weekend and got gun envy.

I had one in 20-ga when I was a kid; it was originally my mother's. Sadly, it was stolen several years back.

Loadedround, how do you like it compared to other 1911's? I'm doing research right now trying to figure out which one to get for my first 1911

I love mine so much! I have handled a lot of 1911's and am so amazed it handles better. I have shot a ed brown and it reminded me of my ruger. As for the last gun I bought it was this arsenal slr 107f

Well....it's kinda a long story - but we're very active with the Friends of NRA Banquets (I chair the event in our home county), so we went to one in Austin last night - ended up with:

Kimber Custom II (raffle)
Engraved Henry Golden Boy (auction)
Masterpiece Arms 380 (auction)
Stoeger O/U (raffle)
Ruger LCP (raffle)

Wife wanted to try the Ruger an' Masterpiece, so we loaded the LCP's bucket pretty heavy, an' just outbid 'em on the other. Since I'm a bit of a .45 freak, I tripped when they called my number on the Kimber!

I'd have had to have one come hell or high water. Shoot, I'm still looking for the right Mossberg 352 just because it was the first gun I ever fired.

Picked up a nearly new as you can get (as in I put the first scuffs on the magazine tube by just cycling the action) Rem 870 18" shotgun. Ran the serial, it is a 1998 build, and I am pretty darn sure I fired the first rounds through it. Couldn't pass it up! I know it was a safe queen for at least the last 12 years. My first 870, and so far I like it!

I picked up 2 new guns this week:

#1 - I bought back my old duty-issued 9mm Sig P226R from my agency, as we recently switched over to .40S&W in the same exact model.

#2 - I traded my old .38 Taurus M85 revolver and some cash for a new 9mm Glock 19 Gen 4.
