    Going gun shopping

    I feel the urge again to impulse shop at a couple of my favorite LGSs

    Nothing specific in mind but the price points are so low... I'd like to take advantage

    Maybe I'll find an ugly duckling nobody wants and adopt it

    Don't need another gun... Just have the hankering...

    What kind of malicious intent do You have towards Me that makes You fear the fact that I may have a firearm.

    ...impulse buys can be the best. It's like they say with testing, go with your first answer. ...trust your subconscious, it's always lookin' out for you.
    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.

    I’ve got quite a gun kitty built up now and plan to put it to use soon. I’ve only bought 4 guns this year and that ain’t near enough to finish the year with.

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    ''Don't need another gun... Just have the hankering..."

    Works for me too.

    My goal or hankering currently is to get to the range more often and pleasure run from rounds down range. Don't enjoy going and punching holes in paper as much as I liked making cans dance down the creek bed. But since we sold the ranch it's the best that I can do for now.

    Wonder if I can find a creek bed for sale?

    Bide your time...the season is nigh and the market soft. There are certain to be deals so good that even Scrooge McDuck can't pass up.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    KelTec CMR30 .22wmr carbine

    Thinking about this... I have the PMR30 handgun and love it

    Maybe this for $449 (plus tax) at my LGS...

    While I can order for $408 (plus tax) at Sportsman Guide with my membership, my LGS charges $20 xfer

    So... Totals roughly $475 at LGS vs $450 online (after xfer fee and tax)

    I'll probably pay the extra $25... Like to support the LGS with a share of my business... Sometimes I buy online

    16" barrel, 22.7" collapsed length, 3.8lb unloaded weight! And threaded barrel

    I've fondled this many times at LGS and it is growing on me!

    Ordered a 350 legend upper this morning, my son is thinking about going out during shotgun season, he did late muzzleloader last year. I might group hunt with him carrying my 357 max but let him shoot 2 unless something big walks by me first. Ordered it online, but will get ammo & mags at LGS. $9 a box of 20 is pretty reasonable for fmj. Hunting ammo is closer to $20.
