    The wife bought me a couple new toys for Christmas. A RCBS turret press and a Dillon swager.

    Present to myself for being a good boy this year and FINALLY scoring a Job on Christmas Eve after 2 months of looking.
    Mint Cond. pre-owned LCP 380. $138 after discounts at Cabela's.
    I guess now I'll have to get myself legal to CC.

    I have one of those and as you probably noticed they have a hell of a trigger pull but I do like it. It is a great size to just slip into the pocket and go. And yes, get your concealed license and carry every time you leave the house.

    Mine is from 2011. In 2013 they improved the Trigger and sights but this is a close up gun and the long trigger pull makes it a safer carry gun I guess.
    The thing was minty clean and looked unused from the outside. When they took it out of the case and I looked in the Chamber and Down the Barrel yeach! And it was gritty racking the slide too.
    After a quick clean I found it to be like new and obviously fired very little. Even came with the original box, papers, soft case and fired round from the factory. I'm real pleased with the deal.
    I figured Cabela's would clean them to get a better price. Who knew they just throw them in the case.

    I have been surprised that used gunshops do t clean a used gun to maximize the return. I just think it's crazy when you lock back a slide and see all kids of funk built up. It would take all of 10 min to do a half bubblegum job on it and make it look way better.

    My new Xmas toy was a 9mm AR from PSA that is itching for a dry day off. Will post up a pic when I can.

    My not too distant future present to myself is going to be either an 18" Tavor, or a Gen.4 Glock-19. :D

    Now that is the right attitude. Why limit yourself.
