I managed to add one more. Surprised me a bit. I was offered a S&W mod. 19-7 two inch snub. My first S&W revolver ...but it sits and plays well with the two Colt Diamondbacks.

Purchased this one this afternoon. U S Army Commemorative M1911A1.45. A pretty good deal at $600. Divorced woman liquidating awarded items.

Hey, that DSA carbine sure looks nice. I miss my SAR48 from awhile back. Nothing like firing a 7.62 battle rifle. The FN family of firearms are historical, very impressive. Enjoy every round you put thru it..

Traded for a Walther P99 .40 with OD frame on New Years Eve. So, I got a "new" one and gave up an "old" one. Now that New Years Day is done, it's time to go rooting through the holster box to find something to fit it. I always enjoy that part. Happy New Year!

I recently purchased a CZ75b as a replacement ccw, however occasionally i am in positions where my ccw may get scratches and such while im wearing it. It wasnt a problem for my old ugly XD40 which over the corse of 2 or 3 years i gave quite a bit of "character" to, intentionally. The CZ75 is a gun ive always wanted and i hate the thought of scratching it so im constantly thinking about it all day. I resolved that issue by purchasing a used Glock 22, pre-scratched-up, and ready to go. It was a police trade in but the gun looks to have hardly ever been fired. The bore is perfect, no wear or the barrel or any internal parts that i could see. And all together i got a better deal buying it in person than if i would have ordered it online.

Personally, I will carry the gun of which I shoot best thereby affording me the opportunity to protect myself as well as family--So any subsequent scratches will be known henceforth as 'character marks.' That being said, if there is a gun of which I simply cannot foresee the chance of a scratch, it will spend most of it's time as a 'safe-queen' only to be occasionally taken out for a range session (this situation has yet to occur for me as all of my stuff gets used at least every other month or so depending on the season). Another option might be to buy two of the same guns and keep one 'pretty'--Search the forum as there are a couple of threads pertaining to this (doesn't work for me personally though it might be nice if one of my guns needed to be cannibalized for parts).

-Happy New Year

i have never bought a rifle, pistol,relvolver, or shotgun. My Dad bought me a Stevens mod 94 single barrel 410 when i was 10 years old in 1960. I've hunted with it since. I have gotten rabbits, squirrels, Quail, Turkey, and Deer with it it's 51 years old and has never been to a gunsmith. It's as tight as it was when new. and still gets the game. I've never needed another.

410 SG for deer--Not me unless perhaps I had a shot <40yds but even then... Personally, I would not consider less than a .20 gauge for deer. In some States like CT., the 410 is prohibited for harvesting deer. Just my opinion.

-Happy New Year

2 - Romanian AES-10 RPK's from JGSales for $520 a piece. These have the correct barrel, receiver, bipod, and furniture. I can't wait to fondle and clean these rifles, but won't be able to do so until the FBI/NICS clears me

Magnuumpwr,

That was a steal of a deal for $600. Great buy on a beautiful gun.

Bought a S&W MP-15 lower Thanksgiving Day weekend, and a S&W 5.45x39 upper from CDNN....making a MP-15R to shoot some of that cheap milsurp 7N6 floating around.

Before that, a H&R M12 target rifle from CMP's bolt action blowout sale.
