    Ok, so it's 2.5 months late, but who's counting??

    Got my Ruger catalog today; my gf says she's still amazed at how I manage to make them send a catalog... to Taiwan!

    BTW, she thought of all the guns in the catalog, she liked the Ruger 10/22 the best. Uh, oh! Tactical mini-sniper in the making!!:D

    Now about that Remington and Sig catalog... 2.5 months, going on 3 now.. :confused:

    Dang Rugers are so tough! Their catalogues even have a thin layer of Kevlar! :D :neener:

    You had to use the word tactical didn't you? Didn't you!?:D

    I pick up my Remington catalogs at the firearms dealer. I have it as soon as I see it and walk my lazy arse over to it:D

    Seeing as there are no firearms dealers in Taiwan, I guess you'll have to wait on the catalog a little longer than me.

    SIG (not Sig, the SIG Freaks will get you for that!) is a whole different matter. Don't count on it coming for another 6 months. That should tell you something about their customer service. To sum it up, S^3, or SSS, or SIG Service Sucks. When you get back to the States, factor that in when you buy a gun.

    Oh, BTW, Ruger catalogs are not a representation of their firearms. Mine was tattered in a matter of weeks. (It fell, I caught it by the cover, and then RRRRRRIP! There goes the cover!)

    My Ruger catalog is 45 pages! Skunk, someone jipped you on the catalog!

    Sig... It's Sig, not SIG, not until I get a catalog in my hands!!

    I don't remember ever seeing a Kahr catalog... My Sig (SIG?)catalog came within a week.

    I really like my 81 page Bushmaster catalog... so much too long for.

    Yeah, I've seen the Kahr catalog. It's a nice catalog....surprise ending (IMHO).

    Twoblink: Why dont you have all the catalogs sent to a relative in the states, and then they ship them to you? That might work better than waiting several months.

    Because... I like the fact that I make them send the catalog to Taiwan!!

    Also, I actually enjoy the anticipation of the catalog..

    Yup, I got the 45-page catalog as well.

    Twoblink, you should buy your wife one of the 10/22s. I bought one about three months ago and have put about 2000 rounds through it so far.

    I bought the stainless/plastic "All Weather" model and put a 3x9x39 stainless scope on her. Now, all I want to do is figure out how to mount a sling on her.

    :) If one had to, you could survive with this rifle. :cool:

    EDIT: Oh, and a thousand rounds for $15-20 is a great motivational factor.

    Carlos,

    only 2K so far?? I've got 30K+ in mine!!

    I changed the trigger in it, amazing difference... I also added a bolt buffer for longevity of life, (as recoil was never an issue) and I changed the sights to william firesights...

    Wife(to be) will probably raid my gun case... (sigh..) the disadvantages of finding a gun lover for a wife..

    Lucky man with the gun loving wife. Sigh.

    Well, I have to give the other rifles equal time too. 500 rounds of 762x39 in the last three weeks. :rolleyes: Plus, at least 250 rounds of 40 S&W and 100 rounds or so of my homegrown .45 ACP in same time period.

    I'll strive to keep up. :rolleyes:

    My best to you guys.

    I took 3000 rounds, and 6 girls to the range. I taught each of them how to use my Ruger 10/22, and my Ruger 22/45.

    I came back about an hour and a half later...

    I didn't get to shoot any .22's that day :banghead: It seems women, left alone at the range with .22's .....:confused: :cuss: They didn't even leave any for me!!

    I later found out, they shot up 2000 rounds my friend brought also... They had 1 person load, while the next one shot... Given I had 5 magazines, they didn't stop!
