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

In the last 5 months I've bought a Savage Axis 30-06, Remington .270 and I won a Benelli Montefeltro Silver 12ga at a DU banquet. My wife has NOT been amused.

Just bought a used Cooper 57M in 17 HMR. I like the round, hopefully it meets expectations.

Just made a trade for a S&W 4" 500 Mag. I have absolutely no use for it but it is something to shoot. The 350gr hollow points (flying ash trays) kick like a mule and are no fun to shoot, the 500gr put pain in a whole new perspective!

I also picked up from out of state a custom Winchester M88 lever action in 358 Winchester. It's been re-bored from a 308 and had a custom Mannlicher style stock on it. Neat little gun!

Just seen my uncles 9mm Taurus he picked up for 269. Think I'm going to pick one up. He said he shot it and liked it. Said it doesn't feel as nice as his xds or sig but at a fraction of the cost. Sounds good to me.

Just picked up Smith & Wesson .40 Shield. I am going to try some of those 155gr fmj loads. Then try 165gr to feel the difference.

Finally had the chance to pick up a rifle I've wanted since the late 70's (almost 40 yrs). Picked up a Ruger 1A in .243, might not be my first choice of calibers but not a caliber I already own. More reloading stuff to buy ;)

Girlfriend decided she wanted to go to Oklahoma deer hinting this year - gave me a great excuse to buy her a new rifle. Kimber M84L Select in 30/06. First "06 I've ever bought other than military or target rifles.

Looking to purchase a new 20 gauge auto this fall. I've shot my cousins montrefeltro and I like it. He loves it. Does anyone have any thoughts on the Franchi equivalent? It's marked Benelli on the receiver and uses the inertia system. The sales guy says it's almost as good but the inner parts are not coated for corrosion. I appreciate the help.

Relax! I get put on hold for every long gun I buy! Been like that for years, never been denied ! And I purchase anywhere from 5-10 guns a year. I have a CC permit, and wait for handguns! It's just life!

Rifleman , I think you should have most likely of got the gun that day also , but don't start this "it's Walkers doing " BS. If Doyle , Barrett , or Burke were Governor they would have done everything possible to restrict firearms . So don't come on here grinding your axe . He's done more for sportsman and gun owners than the other 3 combined.

Was that in Wisconsin? If so, they do not know what kind of long gun you bought. They don't know if it is a shotgun, .30-06, AR or a .22 Plinkster. Maybe someone, with a similar combination of names as you, did something wrong since you last bought a gun. Or NICS assigned your background check to someone who called in sick for a few days. They never tell you why you get delayed. but usually once delayed, always delayed (unless you apply for a UPIN).

Just bought a Zastava M70A at Fleet Farm on sale. Classic look of the Soviet Tokarev TT M57. Nice looking and shooting pistol. For the price, it'll be a nice conversation piece.

Already did. From a distance of 10 yards, with 3" #6 shot in the handgun, I shot at "George", my metallic silhouette target.

I aimed center-mass and had shot marks from the top of his head, shoulder to shoulder, all the way down to his crotch. The shot was fairly evenly distributed, so I think that a rabbit might have a fairly bad day within 10 yards of the tractor! And any bad guys might have a pretty bad day too....
