    My wife's X5 birthday is coming up and I got her a Ruger SR22 as the ammo is a bunch cheaper than the stuff her FN 57 eats. I'm a huge fan of making properly placed holes in paper targets with the cheapest ammo possible. Since it's damn near a buck a trigger pull with my .44 I really like the nickel cost of a round of .22 LR.

    You really need to put reloading gear on your purchase list.

    I sold all my reloading gear, I work too damn many hours. Hadn't used it in a couple of decades since the last time I had a 40 hour a week job.
    Had a MEC shotshell reloader and an RCBS Rockchucker.

    Service rifle optics upper from Compass Lake Engineering; can't wait to start seeing the target again during matches. :rofl:

    This week I picked up 500 pieces of .44 magnum brass and a new Hornady tumbler, along with 7 lbs of corn cob media.

    So I got to assemble my recent purchases. Base was this second-hand Model 7 in 7mm-08. You can't see it, but it has the J-lock (bipod is just there for the photo).

    RemMod7-7mm08-01.jpg

    Added a Gre-Tan firing pin assembly (to get rid of the J-lock), HS Precision sporter stock, DNZ mount, and Leupold VX-3 2.5-8x36.

    RemMod7-7mm08-04.jpg

    Just need to adjust the trigger and get it to the range for sight in.

    You got a great pistol ulflyer! I had a 226 and a 220 back around that time and the 220 was one of the most accurate guns I’ve ever had! My only complaint were those red, fuzzy boxes they came in. After a few years they started shedding something awful!

    My guy got me again. Smith 5906 with adjustable rear sight, half cock trigger and 4 mags for 375.00. I couldn't say no. This will be my last gen 3 purchase.
    I have a bunch of them and I feel I have the series pretty well covered.

    Next rabbit hole will be to add to the high power collection.

    Taurus 357 Protector Poly. Great gun so far and have only shot 38 sp. But very happy.

    Does a S&W model 15-3 count? I just won an auction for it a few hours ago.

    I went to the Berea gun show yesterday and TRIED to buy a couple of boxes of 250-255gr. .45 Colt with no success. The guy with the best prices/selection on ammunition wasn't there.

    On the plus side, there were quite a few interesting firearms there, including a TISAS Hi Power clone, the first I've seen.

    A large case of Wolf ammo, plus a third AK retainer plate (for securing hammer and trigger pins).

    Two "shepherd's hooks" on four of my imported AKs are very firm, but on the TGI AMD-65 and SAR-1, they were installed backwards by the importers.
    Note that on the diagrams easily found on Google, the 'Bulgarian' type of spring --with a small loop on one end-- should be in a specific configuration.

    Maybe not gun related.
    Picked up another old kard dagger to rehabilitate.

    I bought a set of Lee loading dies and some bullets in .257 caliber. At the gun show in the middle of the month some guy was carrying a .257 Roberts rifle around. It called my name. Whispered to me I should take it home.

    I swear, had it not been a Ruger No 1 International with a Leupold scope I would not have bought it. For as much as I did.

    Report pending on my blog site.

    ulflyer: Nice choice. With the typical DA/SA, if the DA is not much more than 11#, I would choose your gun over Any type of 1911 design.

    Your 220 might be the father of my Sig P6 ('01) and both P228s ('94).

    I ordered some magazines, and a loading tool, for my 22lr AR. I finished building a PSA upper on a generic lower, using one of my LaRue MBT triggers, last month. I just hadn't gotten around to ordering any magazines for it until now.
