KAC SR15 IWS LPR ordered and paid for on 12/28/12. It should arrive sometime in March. Once that's paid off I'd like to get an FNX-45.

G19. Why did I wait so long?
Truth cannot live on a diet of secrets, withering within entangled lies. Freedom cannot live on a diet of lies, surrendering to the veil of oppression. The human spirit cannot live on a diet of oppression, becoming subservient in the end to the will of evil. God, as truth incarnate, will not long let stand a world devoted to such evil. Therefore, let us have the truth and freedom our spirits require... or let us die seeking these things, for without them, we shall surely and justly perish in an evil world.

Not bought per se, but laid away till next week:

Smith and Wesson Shield 9mm
If I can't kill it with 6 rounds of buckshot, its time to break out the garlic and fire.

My most recent purchase was this Gen3 Glock 17.

It is my first auto pistol. Actually is my first semi-auto firearm. I got it for a great price, $250 with 4 mags. I bought it just a few days before Sandy Hook.

The guy I got it from is an impulsive type. He suddenly decided to change to an M&P9. He only put 2000 rounds through it and it's in great shape; he even had it refinished by Glock.

CPO Sig P229. Wish it would stack up against my Glock 23 for EDC but sadly she's a safe queen.

M&P Shield 40

Picked this up on Jan. 29th and took it the range on my birthday Jan. 30th; I had been #2 on a waiting list since April 2012! Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 40. All I can say is: I am glad they didn't forget about me and it was a fabulous birthday. Great piece of equipment!

Yeah, they're a bit heavy, I am going to order a shoulder rig from lobo for my P229R E2 .40, once I recover from the funds for it and the P226 9mm tacops (not even a week later). That being said I found a milt sparks vm2 for under $100 on ebay, for the P226, and it carries in it quite well with a 1.5" bullhide belt, but it's on the large & heavy side too.

Somehow all my plans to carry something lighter that a Dan Wesson Valor 5" 1911, didn't quite pan out - or not by very much. So I still find myself usually carrying the j frame revolver.

NO pictures as yet but I got a 9mm H&K VP70Z 18 round clips for Christmas and 45acp Barretta 8045 Cougar for my Birthday. If you gotta get older at least demand a great gift.
I've read peoples' comments about the VP70 and can't agree with. Long trigger pull yes, but hard or tight? It's more like the pull on the older rifles I love so much. " After a couple of clips it leaves your trigger finger in pain " I and my son put 160 rounds through it and all we felt was we should have brought more ammo. All in all, a great pistol for the range and home deference but too big for concealed carry.
The Cougar F frame fits nicely as a concealed carry and the recoil is way less than I expected and perfectly to the rear with NO lift or side sway. It's easy to keep on target and sights line up easily.

Well, I went to a gun show last weekend looking for a 2nd or 3rd generation Glock 17/19. There were some there, but I wasn't interested at >$600 for used combat tupperware and obnoxious refrains of "The price is NOT negotiable!"

So, I came home with a lovely Ruger Bearcat in stainless. What a great little revolver!
