Buy A Gun Day

If you read my last post you can probably guess why I didn't buy a gun yesterday for BAG day. I suppose I could have, but in the interest of fiscal responsibility I'll have to just drool over everyone else's goodies. I'm particularly jealous of Jay's Hi-Power. Lucky bastard. Caleb's new Para Tac-5 is sweet as well, though I have the distinct feeling both those guns (even a stock 18.9 LDA) are out of my price range.

I do have the hunk o' steel still waiting to be shot, so I figure I can consider that my BAG day purchase for 2009.

Yep I bought mine a few weeks ago and have been stocking up on ammo instead.

What'd you buy?

Not only did I owe taxes, but I just dropped nearly a grand on a new laptop. Of course, as soon as I got it my old laptop started working fine again.

Rather than buy every gun related item that catches my eye I've been putting money away to be used for a downpayment on a house. I'm only 23, but I'd like to be able to buy my own place in a few years (sadly NOW is the time to buy but I don't have the cash)

I do need to buy more ammo (only have 500rds. of .45 on hand) but prices are just too damn expensive right now.

At the moment, firearms [all firearms] are a little overpriced. It might be a good idea to shop around [check private sales, especially] and find something that you either want or need for cheap. As the economy worsens, people start selling things and firearms often go first.

I bought a smith 36 a while back- I gotta do a write up on that soon

Hey, make your way north into the People's Republik of MA and I'll let you shoot her. Free ammo, even...

;)

Ah, a Sig.

If it's good enough for the Secret Service to protect the Kenyan-born President, it's good enough for us.

Edmund - Actually I have exactly the same gun the Secret Services uses. The P229 in .357SIG. It's also the same gun & caliber that the Delaware State Police use.

I believe the US marshals also carry that gun.

I load it with the same stuff the LE agencies above do. Speer Gold Dot LP 53918. Stuff was hard to find.
