    I have been planning on this being the last year I ever buy another gun. And I am serious. I have too many now, and have spent too much money. So I decided to buy one more that will take me along with others well into the future. This year alone, I bought a Keltec P32, two more Beretta Nano's and One more Kahr CM9 and also a Smith 642
    . Now last night I ordered one more Beretta Nano, actually the New Version the Beretta APX Carry. These guns are almost over built, the mildest Micro I have eve shot and now, plan to do nothing more than shoot them. All money will now go into Ammunition.

    I put over 10.000 rds through one Nano alone and it did not even cause a dent in the gun.
    No need to buy a new gun again. And in many ways that makes me happy, content.

    Due to the Washington state law going into effect in July, I bought about a dozen firearms between when it passed in November and when it went into effect in July. The handguns I bought in 2019 were only a second M&P40c, and the Extar EP-9.

    The only gun I acquired this year is this C-Series Browning High Power.
    My next door neighbor passed away in June and his wife came over and said "I think he would have wanted you to have this". I don't think it has ever been fired.
    It's something I'll always cherish and never get rid of.

    I had a few modifications done to it, SFS System, Garthwaite trigger, all new springs and new grips.
    I kept all the original parts so, if need be, it can be put back in it's original condition.

    I am a sucker for sales so when Cabelas ran S&W M&P’s on sale this past summer I took and chance on brought one for wife as she is showing interest in conceal carry. It was a chance worth taken as she really likes it. So much that when S&W started their $50.00 rebate I brought another one for a Daughter as she did not have a small enough pistol for conceal carry.

    For myself I found a S&W Model 64 with pinned barrel at a Gunshow in October.

    For 2020 the only for sure plans are to build another AR. Well maybe for sure. Like I said I am a sucker for good sales.

    I bought 8 handguns and 3 rifles in 2019------ I really need to thin the herd but I like what I have. Having a hard time typing because the cat insists on touching me----all the time.

    I see they have APX's cheap now---might have to pick one up---------trying to justify the expense of a Browning BL22 and have my eyes on a Citori 725 but quite a few things would have to go to get one of those.

    I guess that would work depending how many firearms one owns. A couple, maybe yes, a lot more, most likely, no.

    I personally would prefer having some firearms without a paperwork pedigree. As no one can confiscate what doesn't exist. Not that, I own firearms which don't exist on paper except it would be sweet...

    I bought only 2 handguns abd 1 rifle thus year.

    Early in the year I bought a new Beretta Pico. It's rock solid little gun. Even though it only weighs 11oz you can still put a lot of rounds down range in a session. A lot of gun for $199.

    In about April I bought a used Ruger P95. I had one years ago and regretted selling it, so when I saw this one locally I grabbed it. The decocking function broke during my first range session, but Ruger fixed it for free. It runs fine now and is my nightstand gun.

    Right before the Ruger I achieved one my main goals of replacing my Marlin 1894 in 357. I saw it at my LGS in March and was amazed how smooth it was and the quality. By amazing luck Uncle Sam actually let me keep some of my money this year (mainly cause 2018 was such a miserable year financially for me) so I was able to grab it.

    I had hoped to by a 357 mag revolver to go with it before the year was over, but my available funds have been going to ammo.

    In 2019 I acquired a 2nd Browning Medalist because, all things considered, the Medalist is probably my favorite handgun I've ever fired. Also acquired my 6th CZ 75-based gun, an SP-01 Tactical (decocker), because I wanted a full-size CZ with a rail for a green laser. I'm very happy with both of 'em.

    G19, Ruger LCP ll, S&W shield 1 & 2.0, Ruger Wrangler, charter undercover, S&W 686 and a few others. Don't feel like opening the safe up. It's a process.

    IMG_0354_LI.jpg IMG_0044.JPG My interests have moved to inexpensive "shooter" grade revolvers now. I picked up a police trade in model 64 38+P and a 1981 Dan Wesson 15-2 V6 357 mag for a grand total of $600 cash OTD this year. I got a CZ/DW 4" barrel assembly for the 15-2 later.
