    All I bought was a Barackbar poster, a folding foregrip for my AR, and a bunch of peanut brittle and gummie bears. :)

    Nice. I carry one of those in my fanny pack at the gym. Mine works flawlessly too. Great choice. I bet someone very wise turned you onto a nice gun like that one. :)

    850 for a DelTon. Not a "Big name brand" but still a nice gun

    A Heckler & Koch HK45, full size. The P30 and P2000 were getting lonely.

    Bonus: It fits into my CQC holster.

    Saw that 50 caliber ammo cans were being sold for $7, previously had been $5 then $6. Called Aloha Surplus, and they are selling the same size 50 caliber ammo can for $11! If you want ammo cans, then check prices from multiple vendors.

    Guy at the WAC show who sells lots-o-cans told me that auction prices for these have gone way up, so retail prices are going up. He used to do some kind of 5/$5ea deal - not any more. Now they're all $7/ea.

    Did you buy your CW 9 from Keith's? He had one for 409.00 NIB I'm going over there tomorrow. I also like the PM 9 for a couple hundred more, a little less to conceal but also less grip to hold on to? :confused:

    I own both and either one is a good choice. The PM9 is smaller and a little more finished but the CW9 is a very nice little gun...and when you take the price into consideration it is one of the best values out there.

    Thank's for the info P.P. I'm kind of leaning toward the CW9.

    I really like mine. Of course I really like my PM9 too.

    The CW9 is a little less finished as far as the slide goes, but I kind of like the simply jewel cut look it has.

    The CW9 has standard rifling instead of polygonal, but how much difference is that really going to make in such a small barrel?

    The CW9 has a one piece MIM slide stop instead of the forged two piece one, but how bad is that going to bother you? You can always replace it with a forged one. I did.

    The front sight on the CW9 is a post type instead of dovetail, but how much adjustability do you need on this type of gun?

    Someone bought the ruger pc9 before I could get back with the money.
    Picked up an Ivar johnson 38 s&w hammerless WITH the box for the old man.
    That was it.
    All of the m1 carbines were over priced for what they were (IMO).
    And I almost couldn't stop myself from buying a nagant revolver, and a .44 blackhawk.
    But I walked out empty handed. :(

    It's not often that I go anywhere with a big pile of cash in my pocket, but I made the effort to find some guns and things that were reasonable to buy. I was there Friday afternoon, and all of the parts, tools, and supplies were long out of stock. I ended up spending eleven dollars (!), and brought home a great poster and twenty stripper-clips. Whoopie!.............................elsullo :(
