Just did the same thing.
Makes me realize I need to shoot airguns more and firearms less.
<tangent>I was reading an article about how the 32 S&W was a marginal small game round because it only moves the 70 gr. bullet at 750 fps or something. (87 FPE)
That's HUGE energy for what I consider small game. (squirrels, rabbits, grouse) I'm taking squirrels reliably out to 30 yards with a .177 air rifle shooting a 10.5 gr. pellet at 900 fps. (19 FPE) Even with a lung shot, that goes right through, half the time, with an expanded hollow point pellet. (expands to .22 to .25 cal) With a head shot, it's more than is needed; 11 FPE would be fine.</tangent>
Happened across a magnum cylinder for my single six. Perfect fit and picked it up for $25.
Haven't even fired it yet and it's on my bench getting CGW pro package trigger.
An elderly friend sold me 7lbs of HS-6 for $200 & 5K CCI and S&B SPP for $400($80/1000ct). Between that and what I had, I'm finally good to go for years. Also bought NOS "Original" Mustang Zebrawood grips for my Ruger Speed Six 2 3/4" 357.
New sights for a new pistol
New holster and mag carrier.
I just bought 100 pieces of Starline brass on gunbroker. $39 + $3 tax + $9 shipping; ouch! Working on trading for another 100 pcs.
I just bought a set of Lee Deluxe carbide dies in 45 Colt and some HiTek coated 255 gr. Keith-style bullets for it too.
Also, an XS tritium front sight for my 3" 357 Ruger SP-101. An expensive day, even though I didn't shoot or buy a gun! Reminds me I need to get back into shooting pellet guns a bit more and powderburners a bit less.
I just remembered I bought the scope they are for on Sunday so that is two things.
Bugbite leg holster and an Alpaca Conceal leg holster.
