I went on a shopping spree on Fri. I bought a Ruger .357 revolver and a Bushmaster AR15 in .223 cal. That was an expensive BUT fun day. I bought the .357 to carry on me bowhunting and to keep in the nightstand at home and I am really not sure why I bought the AR15. Oh yeah, the election. Dull

Anyone else bought anything lately? Lets hear what, why, ect!!!!! Smile

Just picked up a Marlin Guide Gun in 45-70 with a bunch of components as a package deal, (brass, bullets, powder, dies, loaded ammo, etc) really nice wood also.

Also picked up a S&W 17-4 6" 22 revolver that is just about mint, you would have to look real hard to find any defects, not even a ring line on the cylinder.

Just picked up a Sig Sauer STX 1911 for $922 at Cabelas. The employee pricing took over a hundred off the gun. Fantastic promotion in my opinion. Kudos to Cabelas for letting the promo be used on guns.

Luckily I had everything ordered or already in hand before all the current craziness started. Got this together a couple weeks ago. Good thing too as I was going to wait till end of January before buying all the parts. Sold my first AR at a gun show few weeks back and decided I'd build this one just the way I wanted it. Tactical Innovations billet lower, Red-X 5.56 stainless upper, Mako stock and Core-15 billet charging handle with Nickel Boron BCG & hammer. Vortex scope was a spare I had laying around. I'll swap that out with a more compact model next summer. Now just to find some time to throw lead.

Not sure of the specifics on the model because the box is at home and i'm at the cabin but it's a UAG tactical 3x9 illuminated scope. I got it on clearance. For the $$, it's a pretty nice scope and will do until I can swing a higher end unit. Scope's won't be the limiting factor IF the ban goes into affect.

Glad I had the receivers and barrel. I rounded out the rest of the parts list with Xmas $$. Figured I'd better put it together while I still can. It's mostly Yankee Hill and Delton but there's some DPMS and Magpul parts in it too. It's a mutt but it's my mutt!

ice55, what kind of gun did you get? It looks like a typo in your post. I'm interested in any gun made in Wisconsin.

HC Walleye,

Do you have the LazerMag sight on the trigger guard? I was told that it can cause the gun to not fit certain CCW holsters. That's going to be the next purchase and I'd look into the one you have if the gun fits.

They are snappy little guns. I love carrying mine. Its small light weight and with my Tommy Theis IWB holster I wear it all day and don't even know its on me! Its a great combo!

I picked up my Ruger LC9 3206 with the LazerMag site this evening. Love the feel of this gun and can't wait to shoot it. I'm going to the cabin this weekend and I'm sure a few rounds will be put into the dirt pile behind the shed!
