    I'd say the only thing you need to finish your .454 Casull collection is a Freedom Arms single action. Don

    They are cool revolvers. I've been hot rodding the .45 Colt out of my Blackhawk for years so it only made sense. I like the Casull chambering, more so than my 500 magnum.

    Maybe someday. I still have a few on my "list" to get yet.

    Nothing.

    I did my panic buying slowly and selectively over the years. Now I just sit back and watch panicking hordes running around.

    My brother keep calling me for “what should I buy” advise. He spent enough money in the last few months for somebody to live on for a year buying everything at crazy inflated prices.

    I had one back in the day and really regret selling it. :crying:

    I did replace it more recently with a Freedom Arms 97 Premier Grade though. The 97 is the smaller framed model.

    Freedom Arms are the best SA revolvers you can buy out of the box, as far as I'm concerned. :cool:

    I think you would be hard pressed to finder a more finely fitted SA revolver. I've heard their lockup described as that of a bank vault, with one of the tightest barrel/cylinder gaps in the industry.

    500 rounds of 6.8
    1000 rounds of 5.56/.223
    1000 rounds of 45 cal
    1500 rounds of 9mm
    2000 rounds of 22lr
    500 rounds of 38 sp

    Decided to concentrate on ammo instead of new guns. I do have a gen4 19 and a 30s on order with my LGS. Have my fingers crossed that one or the other comes in shortly.

    In the last four months?

    3 Mosin Nagants and a 1975 Remington 870 Wingmaster that was sitting in a safe for over 30 years.

    I think Mosins will go up in price. They are getting harder to find in good condition with matching numbers and all the accessories. The days of $50 Mosins are long gone and never coming back.

    I picked up the 870 because its a gorgeous shotgun and I think pumps and lever action guns of all types will go up in demand and value if military style rifles are banned or restricted. I dont want to pay $600 for a Wingmaster some day so I got it now while I had the chance.

    I bought a safe. That is it. I loaded up on ammo before the election and I'm going to ride out this shortage.

    Thinking it over, I may want to pick up a Glock G30S instead.

    Hmmmm. No complete firearms as I been set for some time. That said I'm always ready to jump on a deal. Which are few these days, but still there if one is vigilant (meaning a cheap bastard like myself).
    I have mainly been focusing on mods. Got a 1 piece AR piccatiny rail for my Stag M-8, about 15,000 large and small pistol primers, night sights for most of my Glocks, XD 45 and Ruger GP-100. That's about it really.
    Glad I ain't a new shooter these days, y'all gettin' screwed pretty hard by the folks who should be supporting you in more ethical ways than charging $60.00 for a cheap box of Tula 9mm ammo.
