DPMS Sportical. Have made a few improvements since.

Hopefully, my next will be a Garand from the CMP.

Springfield XDs on Monday.
Put about 30 rounds thru it Tues. (too hot stay outside any longer).
Function was perfect, accuracy pretty good at 7 yds. (3 -4")
Now it rides in my pocket when I go out.

Just traded my Hi-Point C9 for a Taurus 94b4 revolver. It's an older model (no safety or lock) with a little holster wear. Can't wait for the heat to break so I can give her some attention.

I bought a nib second Ruger LCP recently on a GB auction because the price was more than right($270) with the bonus being the dealer just happened to be local in town so I saved an extra amount due to no shipping charges or ffl transefer fee.
I always love a good deal.

Lots of nice pics here and I can see people are buying stuff much like four years ago--Am I the only one having trouble finding 'good-deals'? Yeah I know, it's all 'relative' but I'm just sayin' . I did pick up a little mouse gun (.22lr) NIB total for $189 which is a great buy price wise when I compare (and it felt good to support my local gun shop which unfortunately I can't always do). Not to endorse any particular sites (all of them are great, at least via my experiences) but lately I have noticed that if properly researched (and of course timed), one can find a nice deal to be had on galleryofguns and avoid FFL fees as well. Perhaps I need to start considering 'private sales' as I think I have only done so once myself ever.

I intend to find out on Monday with TCM configuration, and sometime later in the week with the 9x19 configuration.

It is a big pig of a pistol, compared to my others, I generally lean towards smaller slimmer autoloaders, and I install slimline alumagrips on 1911 pistols as a habit - no aftermarket for these yet, and there isn't much to make thinner.
Works good, shoots reasonably accurately (it was too hot for serious accuracy testing, it was more of a "blasting" trip to the range)

I cleaned it up and re-assembled in 9x19 configuration - might get a chance to test that setup by Monday, I hope it will eat cheap steelcase and shoot reasonably close to the TCM's POI - I'd much rather be paying $0.20 per shot for cheapo 9mm than $0.50 per shot for TCM ... and I wouldn't be scrounging brass for more than housekeeping purposes.

19-4, the front sight insert and rear sight blade have been replaced with meprolight sights, and it's sporting some badger grips. I'm not one to modify my guns mostly because I'm cheap but I like it.
