    After all, it's what got us here, combined with a lot of courage, a little rebellion and a lot of grit.

    God Bless America.......

    BTW mine was the XD 40 sub-compact. Take that King George. :D

    Bought this.

    Springfield Armory Mil-Spec 1911-A1

    It is a bit out of my price range, but my dad gave me 400 towards it in exchange for me helping shingle his roof. (suprised me, I thought I was working gratis :D ) Can't wait to get it.

    Heck, I just bought a gun a couple of weeks ago, I can't go buying a new gun every damn holiday.

























    Or my wife would kill me with one of them. :D

    I think it's a great idea....just wish I had thought of it earlier. :cuss:

    I did buy 200rnds of .223 at the superhuge Bass Pro Shop in Concord yesterday, if that's any consolation. I also plan on shooting four rounds of 12 gauge this evening. I was going to fire 1,776 rounds of everything I have to celebrate, but that didn't work out. :D

    Great way to support the industry and remember how we got to where we are.

    makarov.com posted over on the mak forum that they were closed today. when they close down for a big holiday it usually means there Internet ordering site ordering part. from what i under stand its because they like to stay right on top of incoming orders.
    take care bud and have a good Fourth.

    I just bought a Glock 21 about 2 weeks ago and 400 rds of WWB .45 ACP yesterday.

    I tried to wait until July 4th but I just could not do it. I am sorry but I just could not wait that long to pick up my new addition to the family.

    I did fondle..er...*cough*...examine all my guns today. :D

    I am very thankful I live in a Country and State that lets me do that.

    Happy July 4th. (this may be a little late for those of you on the east coast).

    I bought a Mosin Nagant 1891/30 today because it was cheap, it looked good, and because I could!
