    Hi Everyone....Although we have a few hours left!...It seems that the calculations were wrong again!

    I say that is the way with Math! Sometimes the numbers get lost when you adding and carrying and dividing and all! :rolleyes:

    But I am happy as of now....for below is a picture of Todays...

    End of World Weekend Purchase!

    Why buy a gun? I figured if the rapture actually happened I would just go and round up all the free guns I wanted. What a surprise, it didn't happen.

    Cool! Supplies should count too! :)

    I had been wanting one of these for a while, and got a good deal locally.
    I would still like the 6" version, but this will fit a present need.

    I looked at an SP101 but they wanted more for it than the GP100!

    Went to an auction that advertised a bunch of guns today, but I'm too much of a cheapskate to pay auction prices ($400 for a well used, and scratched, Henry Golden Boy?:eek:) The one bargain was a WWII era Model 94 30 WCF in about 95% condition that went for $575. Nice gun at a good price, but not something I really need or want.

    I did pick up some ammo though.

    I bought a couple of guns. The first was an Inland M1 Carbine with barrel markings for 9 of 1944. It looks to be fully original based on the sources I have but I am certainly no expert. That gun will go in on Tuesday for an evaluation. The other gun was a Winchester 1876 in 45/60. Serial number says made in 1881 and it is either a late Second Model or an early Third. I saw it for sale at a garage sale 3-4 weeks ago but could not swing the funds then. I stopped by a couple of times once I scrounged up the cash but no one was home. Last night they had another sale and the gun was still there. He knocked a couple hundred off the price and I grabbed it quick. It is in good shape and as soon as I get the OK from the gunsmith, I'll make up some loads and shoot it. It may not be a Rapture gun but it is one I really like.

    I built a coil-gun in my basement to prepare.

    Some say a magnetically energised projectile is capable of penetrating the light of a soul(AT Field anyone?). Ya know... just in case they tried to take me.

    Looks like crap but is "dangerous" within 10ft :rolleyes:

    Heck no. I bought pikes. The Four Horsemen dont stand a chance against pikes.

    Really though, I do know what the Four Horsemen are. Parochial high school....

    This is really sad. I forgot the world was gonna end and got out early to clean the gutters and put up gutter guard. If I had remembered I could have done a bunch of fun things.

    No, just the quality of the people doing it.

    No guns for me today.

    I woke up early this morning and bought a set of tires for one of the cars. I would have been highly annoyed if the world had ended right after buying new tires...

    Well, I bought a Kahr CW 45 today for concealed carry. My Glock 21 seemed a little large, and the Kahr shoots real nice! I'm happy!
