Buy A Gun Day!!!
Weer'd Beard nailed my purchase in his comment to my post yesterday:
Has anybody guessed Browning HP?
Not until you did, Weer'd, and you were right...
Yes, even though I mentioned wanting a new .22LR auto-loader, Ruger 10/22, or M1 Garand, I bought none of those. I had a gorgeous Belgian-made FN/Hi-Power made for the Argentinian Police force practically fall into my lap, and wasn't about to pass on the opportunity. Picked it up for a very good price - about $200 - $300 less than the C&R Hi-Powers generally run, and actually a good deal less than a new Mark III (in a free state; we won't talk about the premium they command here in MA).
Pictures on Friday, of course.
Now, since the Hi-Power was introduced nearly 60 years before the Assault Weapons Ban, SOMEONE'S gotta have a line on pre-ban magazines for me... I've only got one, and it's going to be a crying shame to have to reload the mag after each time shooting... If anyone's got an extra 13-round (or larger!) mag, I'd be interested in talking...
So, what did y'all get? I'd like to keep a running tally, just so we can make Sarah Brady cry...
That is all.
UPDATE: Commenter Bob S. is my first taker for BAG purchases! Bob got a Taurus Millenium Pro PT-145 in the very manly (and MArooned-recommended) .45 ACP.
Commenter Popcorn got a new trigger for her* 10/22.
*a thousand apologies, ma'am!
Weambulance got the following:
Five pistols in the last thirteen days. Two high capacity assault pistols: XD45 Tactical & Glock 20 with a pile of mags each. Two new carry guns: Kahr P9 and a Colt Detective Special hardly used. And, since I'm moving to Alaska in the summer, a S&W 629-4 6" 44 Magnum to go with the 657 Mountain Gun (41 Magnum) I already had. No picture yet, but I'll have one up on my blog later today.
(A blog which blogrolls MArooned. Mental Note: Add for Friday update!)
Nice pick-ups!!! There's a second gun in the works for me, but I won't say boo until after the coming weekend...
