I'm adding Pistols magazines now these came in the mail yesterday.
Bought a Ruger LCP ll $280.00.
Ordered a few thousand large rifle primers from Graf & Sons along with a large and small primer pocket uniformers.
Remington 511 Scoremaster. Date code comes back to May 1949.
A bucket o' ammo from Academy
300 Rem 223 SN bullets to reload & add to the 3500 I reloaded so far his year. Pays to keep a few extra on hand.
Lunch for two, some assembly required
Due on Tuesday, a Dewey cleaning rod for my CZ .17HMR
While waiting for prescriptions at Wally World bought Winchester WB 200 rd pack 9mm and 100 rd pack .38 spl 130 gr. The shelves are a little short on stock ,usually don't buy there anyway .
Haven't bought any gun related stuff in over a year. Need to buy a scope for a rimfire rifle, but it is not a major concern as I have quite a few others to shoot if I want to. Plenty of ammo.
I took the plunge today and signed up for Target Sports Prime with a order of 1,000 rounds of Federal M-193. What scares me the most is the pressure to start ordering ammunition monthly now to make sure I get my $95.00 worth in free shipping.
That is my problem with memberships. I would have a Costco membership if they were lower priced. The only store is a fair drive (10-12 miles), but I would like to shop there periodically.
I have been on-line shopping this week looking for the best deal on Federal 223 / 5.56 ammunition. Companies that have the lowest prices per round also have the highest shipping costs. One outfit charges over $40.00 for only a 1,000 round order! So after doing the math Target Sports will work out the best especially since I will not have to make large bulk orders to save on shipping charges.
I will still be a customer of SG Ammo. It will be a matter of price and availability.
Again, more .22 rimfire on a suggestion of my wife's old classmate.
CCI Mini-Mags for our Rugers, Mark III & IV.
Did I say "old classmate"?
Oh yeah, we are getting old too.
10 more pmags
Just 1 polish ak mag
RCBS 22-250 x die.
Our closest Costco is 30 miles away. We make the trip about every 10 days, The closest HEB, it's a Texas thing, is 30 miles the other direction. We go there about every 7 days, often we bypass that HEB to go to the Super HEB, another 15 miles down the road.
Perspective is everything. When we lived in Portland the closest Costco was 7 miles away. It took about half the time it takes us now.
I'm much rather have to drive to Costco than live in the Metromess.
Hornaday, wire rack, 4 pistol, to put on shelf in cabinet …
I just ordered 10 new pmags; marked for .300 Blackout for my Sig MCX. Yea, I know the gun uses regular AR mags for the 5.56mm. the .300AAC BLK was designed this way. But I want some mags MARKED for 300BLK.
Perspective is everything. I used to live in rural KY where I would drive to Kroger just to visit a modern grocery store and it was an hour's drive. I didn't think anything of it but it was not something I would do every day. Trip to a real mall was a couple hours. I suspect Costco is about 15 miles and would take me about 20-25 minutes to get there with normal traffic. (I was curious and did a google search on distance.) So, a little further than I thought. This is basically my best option if I dump Sam's Club which is closer due to their new policies.
Went in for 22lr ammo and came home with this.
4 hours of CCW renewal training for my wife & I
