    As I said, sold the Taurus yesterday. The guy who bought it couldn't have been nicer. He has a few of them and is pretty much buying them up for his kids in the future. How nice!! Paid cash, so I handed it right back to the guy at the counter. My 45 is paid for en totale. Now all I have to do is wait for IT TO ARRIVE!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!! Dude said it'd be here by today, and it better be. I can't wait any longer!!!

    Only downside is that I thought the price the guy gave me on the phone was everything out the door. Then at the store, I got charged for the paperwork, tax and whatever. $45 less than what I thought I'd have in my pocket today, which was to go towards ammo so I can shoot this bastard. So, in true TiM fashion, I finished a belt for a guy last night. $50 in my pocket there. Plus delivering a bracelet order to a cop tonight, $30 there, and he wants me to make a dog collar - another $20-$25 for that one. WOO HOOO!!!! I'll start off with a box of Hydra Shocks just so I have my carry ammo, and probably a small box of something decent for plinking. Maybe after payday I'll snag a 250rd box of Remington FMJ ammo from Walmart for a tad under a C-bill. That'd do me fine for a while.
    Yeah, the OTD price is always skewed. Add in the tax, plus the background check fee and it pretty much adds another $75-100. Great to hear it's finally yours, buddy!

    The good thing is I sold a bunch of stuff and probably will be sitting on about $700 to spend here soon. Money burns a hole in my pocket, so needless to say a purchase will be made! I just don't know what I want yet.

    I'm toying between either getting an original mosin nagant sniper, swiss K31, or a Saiga 12 (which i'll convert myself.)

    Hmmm.....

    The XDM is currently sitting on my desk right next to me so that if nothing else, whenever I see a FB post about "grab the item to your right, that is your zombie defense weapon", I'll have a really good answer!!! And oddly enough, the gunshop didn't have much of a selection for ammo last night. They had some regular Hornady JHPs and another variety. I went with the others - Hornady Z-max. Yup! First rounds purchased for the Mossberg were zombie rounds, and same with the XDM. I'm nothing if not consistent!!!!

    I did stop at Walmart before work today and picked up some FMJ rounds. I might crawl up over the hill behind the office over lunch and pop off a few rounds. Always nice to shoot on property adjacent to a prison! LOL

    Congrats!

    I bought that Hornady Z-Max ammo for all my guns too, just to have it.

    Now go out and shoot that thing.

    Assuming you mean the XDM.... lol It feels great. I thought about switching the backstrap out to the larger one just to see how it'd be, but I'm honestly VERY happy with the way it feels. It's just... perfect!! And how it shoots.... dude... HIGHLY recommend this!! DEAD on accuracy, even for a crappy shooter like me. Recoil is a little more than my Taurus 9mm, making it easy to shoot and re-acquisition fast. Overall, I'm in love with this thing.

    yup hot brass and a baggy v-neck t-shirt probably not the best combo..

    So weird if he is a natural lefty, learning to play guitar righty really hard (but if you ever want to borrow some one elses guitar, and at least until recently pay extra for a lefty model if they even make one, you learned to play righty)... if you can do that - I would think you'd be able to shoot righty?

    I do everything left handed except play guitar. I play it right handed like normal. I think it was easier to learn like that.

    I've picked up quite a few more jems for my WW2 collection. I've added a Japanese Arisaka Type 99, 1943 Mosin Nagant Sniper (real one), Steyr M95, and a few M39 Finnish Mosin Nagant's. Thankfully, I was a supplement whore years ago and my rare collection has enabled me to acquire a nice fund for this WW2 collection.

    Here's one of the Finnish M39 Mosin Nagant's that I got recently. Can't wait to shoot this bad boy!

    Was one of my first guns I owned was a S&W .357 mag. And still have it. Just started loading Glue Gun Bullets for it so I can shoot at home in the basement or garage.

    Most fun you can have with a Glue Gun and Bullet Mold.

    I have a S&W Model 65-3. Great trigger and nice bull barrel. Just a joy to shoot.

    I put up a Picture of the Glue Bullet and .38 Case.
    All you need to do is prime the Case and then push in the Glue Bullet. No gun powder needed. Great for just practice during the winter if you can't make it to the range.

    Went out after work yesterday and popped off a few rounds from both the XDM and the Mossberg. I made up two targets - cardboard and a sharpie - and went to town! Two complete sets through the shottie, 10 rds to the face and it was gone (just target load), so nothing worth showing there. At 25 paces (roughly 20 yds), I played around with a person target with the 45. First 7 shots were to the body, and I'll admit, they sucked! For whatever reason, they were all over the place! Then I just said screw it - head shots. Ignore the one on the shoulder, as it was from the body shots (probably the double bump shot that I accidentally let off). But for the face... 6 for 6!! I have to shoot at faces more often.

    Bought some candy today. New mag plate for the XDM, aluminum with a Punisher skull laser-etched. $25 from Brownells.com, and it was the only place that I found 'em for the .45. Will post a pic when I get it!

    Been having fun with my Sig P238, and will probably be buying either the Ruger SR9 or a Beretta PX4 Storm soon. - Since I'm a southpaw, I have a little extra difficulty finding the right weapon. - I'd prefer the 40cal in the Ruger, but I don't have a single gun that's cheap to shoot. I want something to pink around with whenever I want.

    I've seen some great deals on CTD lately, but after the shipping and FFL fees, I may as well buy locally.

    Finnish M39 (1941 Sako) Mosin Nagant

    I refinished this to specific wartime specs complete with pine tar finish. These M39's are as good as in gets in the Mosin Nagant family. I'm pleased.

    1943 (Tula) Mosin Nagant PU Ex-Sniper restored:

    I've been putting this together for the last month or so. All parts on this gun are time period authentic and original. I found a guy that was liquidating much of his original PU scope collection (including lens covers, scope covers, and mounts) at GREAT prices considering their current open market value, so boy did I hit the jackpot. I have a few more that I'm going to restore.

    The Scope is a 1942 PU (Progress factory) scope. The optics are still amazing after 70 years.

    I've been thinking about finding a better CC piece. My XDM is good in the winter because its easily concealable with a jacket but it prints pretty bad in just a tshirt. I was thinking about the S + W bodyguard but I'm still not sure after hearing about some of the problems with them.

    This is the group for the .45HK at 25 yards. Top group is te size of a half dollar, that's pretty good fo a .45 at that distance I think.

    What do you guys/gals think?

    I saw that earlier and couldn't be happier for you guys in Illinois! A big win all around for both the citizens and the 2nd amendment. I say you celebrate with buying a new firearm, haha!
