    I picked up a new Ruger American Predator in 223. It uses AR15 mags. Its an 8 twist barrel, so I will be curious how it shoots 40 and 55 gr bullets. I found a leupold 3-9×40 in the back of the safe and mounted it up.

    55 should be good
    40 may not stabilize

    Another Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite. Friend selling his and I was the first to look at it.

    Got the call from Anniston this morning and paid for my service grade 1911. I'll be interested to see what shows up.

    Added another 32 to the mouse gun collection. This will be the smallest/lightest of the 32s, 9 oz fully loaded. Reading up on them it’s a early production one that used hexagon bar stock to machine the slides from that was later changed the square stock that makes for bit more bulky slide profile.

    ^ That's a good one. Mine also came with the waistband clip, but I took it off. Am rethinking that decision now as I had an IWB holster that if fell out of when I bent over so the clip is probably a better idea. Nice you got a black slide. Mine has a silver slide.

    My early P32 with hard chrome slide was a nice shooter, but traded it towards a Ruger Super Blackhawk.

    Got this Tula TOZ-12 in a trade with my brother. First commie gun I've ever owned. 20221015_113429.jpg 20221015_113442.jpg 20221015_113414.jpg 20221015_113419.jpg

    Guess it's not technically a Tula, but that's where it's made.

    G43X, which was about two years ago.

    Trying to currently find a G17 Gen 5 MOS in Battlefield Green (already asked my favorite FFL to find and order for me), and on my buy right now list is a Colt marked Astra made Cub, or even the Astra made & marked version.

    I still want a 1911 in 9x19 but it's on the backburner and I've been very happy where I am currently at, so I stopped trying to chase the next greatest thing or just to fill up my safe.

    If you get one of reasonable quality you will wonder how you've made it this far through life without one.

    I keep hearing that I should give Ruger 1911's in 9 a shot, but in my mind I would at least like to have a modern option like a light rail. I can live without an optics plate option but no light for possible nightstand use makes me a sad panda.

    Bought a Springfield Emissary 9mm. Heavy bull barrel slows down recoil.
    Nice shooter.

    Well, I just turned in my 4473's and A&D books to ATF. It was a good 12 year run, but I am a free man now and can travel. Before retiring from the gun trade I decided to acquire any firearms that I might need. The list is relatively short. The Mrs. wanted a snubby for the nightstand so she is the proud owner of a 38 spl Charter Arms and a Ruger LCP 22. I landed up with a Bergara 22, Ruger 10/22 Sporter and a 12ga Legacy Pointer. Needed a 12ga O/U and this one was a bargain. Might not keep it, but we will see. Then there was a gun that I had bought for speculation. A Colt 1911/22. It might go to the next gun show. Cashed in on some scopes too. Now have a couple of Leupold VX-3D's and Vortex Diamondbacks. I'm fixed.

    Dual caliber (22 & 40) muzzleloading airgun. Look for my article in Jan 2023 Muzzle Blasts magazine.

    New to me Winchester Model 67A single shot .22. Always wanted one, now I have one. It will join the other vintage .22s and get an occasional outing.
