The wife bought me a couple new toys for Christmas. A RCBS turret press and a Dillon swager.
Very nice, I used a single stage rock chuckar for 35 years. Last year got a Lyman turret press and OMG You will love that press. Merry Christmas.
I got a can of Simoniz....
Afgani village elder, yeah?
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.
Set of 12g coasters
Set of 50 cal salt and pepper shakers (unknown origin)
And maybe a XDS for myself when I get home
My not too distant future present to myself is going to be either an 18" Tavor, or a Gen.4 Glock-19.
.... Or both.
Lol... I'm picking up the tavor tomorrow and the G19 is next on the list
You have good taste
Yeah, my wife tells me that my taste in wives is STELLAR.
I tell my wife her taste in a husband is impeccable, some days she will agree
Now that is the right attitude. Why limit yourself.
Mama always said I had no boundaries!
T'was a great year:
Used Rem 700 BD Stainless in 300 RUM + new barrel on the way from McGowen, converting it to a 7LRM
Sharp Shooter Supply match trigger for my Savage
100 pcs 375 Ruger Brass and all the dies to convert them to 7LRM (which means 400 free bullets from Hornady)
Some 12x50 Vortex Binos.
No, No , Danyellsohn ! Wax on-Wax Off !
Lyman 49th Hardback and a brass tumbler. Pretty excited to start learning to reload. (Dog was not a present)
