    Those have always been very cool guns, but never seem to come to mind.
    And your photo has penetrated my thick, very hard skull.

    Whenever I decide to again save for a gun, a 30-30 would compliment my four centerfire rifles: three imported AKMs and a Czechpoint VZ-58.

    Lee production pot, bullet sizers, and a single stage press dedicated to sizing my soon to be cast bullets.

    Bought two Sig Romeo5 Red dots, one is for my Springfield M1A Scout, haven't decided what to put the other one on yet. I like the auto on /off feature. Also ordered a Walnut stock for it.

    Although I've bought a Trump MAGA and Gadsden Snake/Flag stripped AR receivers just because I thought they were cool,
    I bid on a Kimber K6S last week ... although it was a no-reserve auction, I was sure I wouldn't win as the opening bid was the lowest price new one (by several hundred dollars) on GunBroker ... but found out Saturday, no one bid against me! My first Kimber revolver and every report is they are excellent.

    Sight mark night vision scope, which arrived today. A upgrade from a cheapo with better options. I mounted it on my DPMS AR-15 5.56mm. Carbine. Has B & W and green nightvision, and a color daylight mode, with zoom, and has record feature but needs one of those cards inserted into it, and I don't have one of those yet.

    A SOLGW FCG, larger profile charging handle latch, and extra strength magazine catch spring for a pre-Clinton ban AR-15.

    Mags for my Shield and M&P 9. Factory supplied mags are loaded. I wanted one of each for dry fire practice. I'll get these things to shoot where I want or break a finger trying.

    Some throw levers and parallax adjustment extenders for my Athlon and Vortex scopes. Oh, and a master set of Chapman screwdrivers.

    Which one?
    The only "real" AR-10 is an Armalite (they own the naming rights to "AR-10", like Colt owns the rights to AR-15)

    Co-worker's grandson got a new savage rifle in 243. Couldn't find any ammo. I had recently purchased a couple guns from a local gun/pawn and noticed a new stock of ammo. All sorts of stuff: 9mm, 40, 45, and many rifle calibers. Told her to call over there. They saved her the last box and knocked 20% off the marked price.

    Glad I supported them, as that's a classy move. I hadn't been in there since my Grandpa was alive and i was too young to buy a gun.

    I just traded a couple of compact Nines for a very nice S&W Model 64-4 2” snub-gun. Compact Nines are not kind to my aging hands, and with the limitations on formal range time, due to the pandemic, my least-perishable trigger skill is long-stroke DA, with medium- and medium-large-frame revolvers. This seemed to be a good time to trade.

    I established my long-stroke DA revolving-pistol skills during the Eighties, when the only handguns I could use, on or off the clock, to defend myself or others, were DA revolvers, by PD rules.

    I still use auto-loaders, but if they chamber duty-level cartridges, I need them to be full-sized, duty/service-type guns.

    Sorry but its not a "true" AR-10.
    Its a spin off copy of one,that shoots the same caliber & uses the same magazines !.
    And if I could have found a real one,I might have gone for it.

    Hi...
    Picked up a few primers yesterday.
    Limits on how many of be can buy at every gun shop that has any.
    Federal Large pistol Gold Match primers are now $6.95/100...Gold Match Small Pistol are $4.95/100.
    CCI Standard Small Pistol primers are now $5.99/100.
    I was able to buy 200 CCI Small Pistol primers and 300 each of the Federal Match primers.

    Reaching the point where I am no longer able to replace what my son and I shoot in two range sessions.
    If this continues much longer, I will have to start limiting the number of rounds we fire and/or the number of calibers we shoot until we can start to get access to a more steady supply stream.

    Grabbed 2 lbs of Ramshot Hunter powder at a BiMart for $24.99 per lb and stumbled on 2 boxes of .277 Speer 130 gr BTSP at a Walmart for $19.79 each. Can’t pass up good deals on components these days.

    I was just curious and there is no need to be sorry for anything!!!!
    I owned an Armalite AR10 once, and will never again! There are MANY choices and thanks to modern machineing technology, many are just as good without paying for the name, the AR design is naturally accurate and is a good choice for any one!

    I ended a long gun buying moratorium when I found a Weatherby Mark XXII in a local LGS.

    Ordered 1000 Speer TNT .308 125gr bullets. The (1400) .308 once fired brass casing I ordered came in, as well as the new walnut stock for my scout. I like
    it much better than the Poly stock

    Thought I might try some Wolf Gold 223 ammo. I've heard good things about it.

    The past two weeks has been a whole lot of "merry Christmas to me!" shopping. Bought damn near 40 pounds of powder, 3 new pistol dies, some more pistol and rifle bullets, and unfortunately only 500 LP primers, all I could find so far.
