    Was in Academy yesterday to get a bicycle pump, went to browse gun section and they had a Glock 43 so I bought it.

    Sold a Yugoslavian SKS for way more than I paid for it. Guy was a LEO and thought his handgun wasn't enough. Bought a S&W .22 Compact. Hellcat was a Christmas present.

    I traded a Benelli Nova for a like new Gen4 Glock 20 with an Inforce light and 150 rounds of assortedammunition. I also bought a S&W 1911SC and Troy carbine, both used and for prices too good to pass up.

    I'm a bit green cause of your 19M. Not sure why. Seems a very desirable pistol, hard to get and definitely not inexpensive. Still, I don't know what I'd do with it that my own 19 couldn't do.

    I still want one. Sincerely happy you were able to get yours.

    I've sold several since I had pistols stacked on top of each other in the gun safe. I did buy a blue label Glock 34 and stumbled upon a Ruger PC carbine in .40 s&w to go along with my 9mm one.

    I have picked up a S&W Model 15 for nostalgia purposes as my late father owned and sometimes carried one, a Daewoo DH-40 pistol because I thought it was neat, and a GLOCK 48 when I saw carry oriented pistols were disappearing from the LGS shelves.

    I was yearning for a Glock 27, but there were none to be found locally. I would have taken a 23 instead but they were extinct as well around here. In fact, couldn't find any .40 Glocks at all.

    I guess I got this about the time this all started.

    Colt Trooper, 38 Special, from 1965. With the box, papers, etc. Unfired outside the factory as far as I can tell.

    Dealer bought a big collection from someone. This was the only one I could afford. They tell me they still haven't put all of them out yet.

    Decided to upgun my HD. Went from Springfield 1911/9mm to G19 Gen5.

    Also upgunned carry from Colt Mustang XSP to Springfield XD Mod2 Single stack

    And for fun and to mirror the first gun I owned many years ago...a Ruger Mk lV 22/45.
    (And because a friend gifted me with a huge amount of .22LR)

    Unlike the Mk II this one doesn't reduce me to tears on re-assembly.)

    When Covid 20 hits, I should be able to sell the rest of my non Glock handguns. ;)

    I'm very pleased with mine. Fit and finish are good, rivets flush and domed and it shoots really well.

    Well let's see...during the pandemic the pandemic (sorry, LOL), they weren't firerarms, but were technically considered firearms, and those would be a 4.5" Volquartsen LLV upper for my Ruger Mark II and an OEM Ruger upper that had it's original 5.5" barrel shortened to 3.5" and rethreaded by Volquartsen for my Mark IV 22/45 Lite, both of which I purchased to be used as suppressor hosts.

    I already own too many handguns and have recently sold off a number of Glocks and others that I can no longer comfortably shoot or justify owning. I've decided to spend my money instead on a couple of welding machines, metal working tools, a powder coating setup, and most recently a benchtop milling machine and some tooling.

    There's much more to life then being preoccupied 24/7 with this gun BS!

    I picked up two Kel tec P17s, one in March, one in April. I also finally talked a friend out of his IMI Timberwolf 357 mag pump action a rifle. I traded a single shot 22 rifle for a NEF single shot 12 ga shotgun and I picked a H&R 44 mag single shot barrel to go along with it.
