Guns, Gear, Accessories, Etc: What did you buy today?


More ammo boxes! Tried to pick up some at the LGS but they are sold out. Had to go online and order them. Planning on filling them with more reloads.
What type of ammo boxes? Are they the reloading tray type or more like the generic 50 round tray with paper boxes. I've been looking for something like that to package up some loose ammo but haven't found anything yet.
Had some extra time this morning, so I went to the local sporting goods shop. Stood in line 45 minutes before the store opened and 15 minutes after waiting my turn to go into the firearms counter.

I was number six in line. 9mm 50 round boxes box of Federal were going for about $0.32 per round or $15.99 per box of 50 with a three box maximum. Guy #7 only got 1 box and they were out for the day of 9mm.

As I strutted out of the store with my purchase, I had to laugh. I had just waited in line for an hour to get ammo I did not need when I had previously not waited in line earlier in the year for TP when my personal supplies were low. Go figure...


I've been nomadic for so long that I may never get completely unboxed. In the last few days I assembled a couple storage bin racks and began unboxing brass. I need more bins. That stuff adds up over the decades. I figure around to 30K of 9mm give or take, with a bit less of 357 Sig, 10mm, and then mere thousands of newer stuff like 300 BLK and 45 Colt (!) etc. For a while one of the used brass outfits was doing a buy X amount and check this box for free 9mm brass, and a few of the packages have bonus 500s or 1000s of 9mm. o_O

Also stumbled across a PMAG 10 pack this evening.

It's like a really weird Christmas or something.


Just ordered a Nikon P-Tactical 2x7 scope for my AR-10. Talk about a hard decision! I wanted a compact lighter scope with BDC marks and enough magnification to shoot up to 500 yards but not be overly bulky. Didn't want to spend over $250. Liked the Vortex 2x7 Diamondback, but the Nikon had some features I really liked and was a bit shorter. If I don't like it on the AR-10, then I'll buy a Ruger Predator in .308 to put it on.
