    Got caught in a bad storm fishing early spring, and lost em all.

    Haven’t seen any in stock to replenish.

    Sucks!

    It's hard to decide.

    Picked up a G35 gen 4, Rossi R92 in .44 mag, and a Ruger American Ranch. All on sale or cheap (Glock was a private party)

    Absolutely nothing. I picked up a G26.5 that I won in a match in May. Nothing since.

    A CZ PCR and Smith 6906 were both unplanned spur purchases due to boredom during the pandemic. Everything else I’ve bought has been well planned despite the craziness.

    There are a lot of nicer hunting style shotguns and rifles being traded in for tactical guns/pistols right now. Decent deals considering.

    I'm in the process of building an LR308 (aka a DPMS pattern AR10).

    I kind of surprised myself with this project, because I'm really a wood & steel kind of guy. The accuracy potential, that .308 goodness, and the JP Silent Captured Spring assembly finally got to me

    I'm having a good time, and building it the way I want to. Well, except for the piston kit. That will have to come later. Maybe.

    I bought a Winchester 1300 Defender for $175 a couple weeks ago. Total impulse buy. I have no need for it, I just knew that defensive shotguns are hard to find I couldn’t pass up a good deal.

    Other than that I haven’t been focused on guns. I have been grabbing up any reloading components I can find.

    I also bought a Beretta M9A1 in .22 LR for $350. I had a little stash of .22 I piled away years ago and with the ammo crunch a .22 in a platform that I am fond of made sense to practice with.

    With the price of 9mm right now compared to the .22 I bought a few years ago for 4 cents per round the cost of the gun was paid for after I shot 1000 rounds. And I have **** way more than that through it since I bought it.

    I have also bought a couple cases of Golden Tiger 7.62x39mm. It’s only been a couple of cents higher per round than normal when I have found it. It’s good stuff for plinking and self defense IMO, good stuff to stock up on.

    I have been in the shop cranking out 45 auto every night.

    All were bought at the beginning of this mess, before prices went up;

    Wilson Combat AR9G
    G17.4
    G34.4

    Should have bought more ammo, but if I dont get crazy, I should be able to weather out this pricing spree.
