    I bought my SIG P290RS .380 in mid-March, so I guess that qualifies, although it wasn't a pandemic purchase. I think there's a good chance that it was the last brand new two-tone P290RS (of either caliber) left in America.

    Ruger SR1911 10mm and a Beretta PX4 Storm .40 S&W.

    Neither were "needs", both were "wants" and to fill out my pistol collection. Don

    Broke even. Sold a 20 gauge pump shotgun and shells to a friend, and bought another 12 gauge pump at a great deal about 2 weeks later. Also, found 500rds of mini shell slugs at a decent price.

    Just a Taurus G3c. I've been looking for a PSA AK-E for over a year and the 'Rona-Protests ain't helping.

    Sold three handguns, two rifles.

    I went on a binge:

    Glock 30 Gen 4
    SIG P220 Carry DAK
    SIG P227

    I bet nobody knows what my favorite round is... ;)

    I sold one of my three Shadow Systems MR918 and my wife sold "our" Ruger MKIV Target pistol to my sister.

    I purchased a Poly 80 Glock 26 frame and internals - still haven't done anything with it and my wife bought herself a Ruger MKIV 22/45 Lite.

    Right now I just don't have any needs, and I refuse to overpay for my wants.

    Sig P365/W safety. 1-2 months ago.

    The demand for firearms/ammo is going to get much higher as the election get's close. If Biden wins, it's going to get really crazy.


    I was thinking I should get my CCW again and start carrying again due to all the leftist idiots. I was out of town and let it expire years ago. I just happen to be looking for something on https://www.academy.com/ and clicked on firearms, pistols and centerfire pistols. If you click on pick up today, it will show what is in stock. A P365 showed limited availability so I clicked on it and ordered it online. I went and picked it up a few hours later. The shelves were bare, but they had it on the shelf. It was only there a few hours.

    Academy usually has very few firearms. I usually see a few S&W(SD9, EZ) Taurus, Springfield, Ruger on the site. Today I see they have a Canik TP9 elite sub compact for $379.99, never seen one. They had a Glock 19-4 (539.99)and a Glock 19X ($629.99) last week but I'm waiting to get a couple of blue labels so I didn't bite.
    This is available at Academy in Austin-Brodie.

    I've been thinking about a G48. I need to get off my ass and call around to the blue label dealers.

    None bought during the pandemic here.

    I have plenty, and with the supply and prices the way they are, I am fine as I am. If anything, I am contemplating getting rid of a few. I have so many I never shoot, and don't really even want or need that should probably sell them while prices are nutty. I keep saying that, but they are still sitting in the safe...

    I’ve been selling a bit!

    Otherwise,
    I have bought some mags, a brace for my shockwave, some 590 parts....

    I’d buy some stuff if I could find what I want.
