Another Marlin 1895 45/70. Three months ago. A 223 barrel for my T/c Encore.
In the next month or two it will be a Glock G29.

Last Gun

Ruger 10/22 in Walnut Mannlicher stock and three weeks prior to that, for the wife, a Taurus 9 shot 22 Lr in Polished SS with a 4 inch barrel, that I put Pink Rubber grips on. I really did buy it for her and the granddaughter to shoot. You know I bought it for the wife if I put pink grips on it.

I can see a lot of people opting for .22 type guns--makes a lot of sense on so many levels (range, plinking, competition etc.). There's that certain peace-of-mind about taking several+ bricks of "affordable" ammo out for a weekend of shooting with the family absent breaking the bank (which in this "new economy" is tantamount in importance).

-Cheers

S&W J frame 642-2 Talo edition. It's a great little pocket pistol.

460Kodiak, Just out of curiosity do you carry speed loaders for you primary CCW? I often wonder about this relative to revolvers but seem to always forget to ask (I think I am going to search for a stat study on how many revolver people carry speed-loaders as well just to satisfy my curiosity).

-Cheers

PT92, I don't know if you'd count them as 'speedloaders' ( though they are faster than loose rounds), but I carry a speed-strip for my CCW.

Lately I have had that 'itching' for a revolver--I would like to get one and become proficient with the reloads just to be sure if I decide to use it for CCW at times.

I'll buy a .22 on a whim, and treat it as a toy.

I have my "serious use" gun needs covered, at this point I'm not filling "need" slots, just "want" or "giggle at" slots in the safe. For example, a NAA mini is a "giggle at" gun, and the .22lr mare's leg / Henry USSR / Marlin Papoose are "want" guns more than "need" guns

I hope it bites a little more than a "toy" as I do use a Beretta 21A for a BUG.

Marlin 795. Came with Shooter's Ridge 25-rd. mag, what a piece of crap. Thankfully it also came with an OEM 10 rounder. Bought a Bushnell .22 rimfire scope for it, have yet to sight it in.

Just got home from buying a Weatherby Vanguard Varmit SUB-MOA in 308 with a Millett TRS-1 4-16x50 mounted in Leopold rings and mounts. Messed up part is went out looking for a PS-90. Guess that will be next week.

It happens to us all, in particular, at large-scale gun shows, believe me. Go out with a methodical plan to searh said venue for specific item only to veer off on a tangent resembling the wife gone mad on a weekend shopping spree!

LOL

The last time I went looking for something specific, I was searching for a 4inch S&W 29

Brought home a Century FAL ( which rather quickly became one of my favorite guns)

I hadn't bought anything new for a few years but last week I bought a 686-5 2.5" from a fellow member here. A few days later I was in one of the LGS looking at shotguns but found a great deal on a NIB FNP 45 instead and I couldn't resist. I've wanted one of those for years! Needless to say, it was a great week.

Maverick:

Good guess, but almost everybody says that Service Grades have been cleaned out.

A friend who still has contacts on a military rifle team seems to believe that the CMP has a large number of them, but but need a good bit of time for the detailed evaluations.
