A soon approaching hangover
Was tempted to buy a Polymer80 kit from Midway, But, total price for the lower, slide assembly, parts kit, sights, and magazine would be around $550. I would much rather buy the new Hellcat than a pistol I have to build myself and probably screw up and have no warranty support.
Ended up buying a new brush guard for my 4Runner and a printer instead. New pistol or upper will have to wait.
The walnut grips for my Beretta showed up on black Friday. Not a real deal but they are hard to find.
Worst storm in 20 years dropped 2 of neighbor's trees (One tree fell on our Suburban and the other on our power line ripping the meter/box off the house). So spent pre Thanksgiving chopping up 2 trees blocking the road all day with neighbors and electrician bill came to $720.
So didn't have the energy to do any BF shopping (still in recovery mode) but looks like I will be picking up Lenovo 2-in-1 11.6" Touch-Screen Chromebook and Moto G7 cell phone.
I am starting to check on some BF gun related deals.
Ordered one of these $150 off regular price. I bought one of their fixed 6X scopes a few months ago and was very impressed.
Lots of other deals here for a few more days if anyone is looking for a target/tactical scope. The fixed powers at $199 is a steal for this quality of scope
Bought 5 bags #9 shots for $36.99 each. It’s time to crank out some skeet shells. Probably will buy some bullets from RMR this weekend.
I had more trouble learning to ride a bike the I had build a Polymer80.
Hit the local pawn shop and found lots of junk and some intriguing things that were over-priced. Finally settled on a Winchester 1894 in 30-30. It has good wood and bluing. Furniture is tight and action is smooth. $300 OTD.
Well my strength gave out this morning. Cutting Edge bullets makes copper monolithic bullets that I’ve wanted to try for a few years. They make a 190 gr flat point bullet intended for 10mm auto. This seems an excellent dangerous animal bullet. Unfortunately they are so damned expensive I’ve never really cared to pay for them. ($43/50 count)
Black Friday brought a 25% sale, so I ordered 250 and got free shipping.
Interested to see what I can make them do with some long shot or AA#7.
A large web distributor has a local store, earlier in the week they had Aguila .22HV for $16.90/ 500, picked up some of that.
I got a couple thousand rounds of 9 mm range ammo. LGS price was the same as lowest I could find online and I could walk out with it.
A rangefinder for #1 son
Hunting bibs and coat for #3.
I fell off the wagon in October successfully ruining my gun budget so I had no problems skipping Black Friday.
However I gave my Daughter and her husband a new M&P Shield this morning as a Christmas present and I am treating them to a trip to a shooting range this afternoon.
Of course there lies a temptation that I may find something for myself
I picked up a new pistol upper from AndroCorp, didn't really find anything else that I wanted.
I pay attention throughout the year to normal prices and compare those to the “Special sales” like Black Friday. Rarely are the prices much better than normal prices because they claim the “% off normal price” is actually MSRP. And even more rarely are the good prices on anything I’m interested in. I typically find better deals throughout the year.
So this year I haven’t bought anything for Black Friday.
I ordered 800 rds of Monarch 115 gr steel cased fmj on sale for $99.99
I also ordered 2 boxes of Remington 125 plus p 38 spl jhp for $17.99 each to shoot out of 1894. It was only a little more than their cheapest RN or fmj ammo
My barrels just arrived.
Ballistic Advantage Modern Series 16” 5.56 Government Contour 1:7 Nitride Mid-Length, reg. $160 for $80.
Diamondback Firearms 5.56 NATO 16” Government Contour 1:8 Nitride Mid-Length, reg. $80 for $45.
Now to figure out what to build with them or keep them as spares.
Perrier: 2 for 1
(not quite what you meant, but thats the only thing I bought yesterday)
Nothing. Bought some bullets earlier this week and had to brave the crowds for some primers but no deals on them at Fleet.
My wife did greenlight my purchase of a Wilson Combat next year, so that's like birthday and Christmas come early.
Primary Arms 1x6 ACSS scope. $241 total from Optics Planet. I've been thinking about it for 2 months and ran across it online.
I purchased a Remingtom RM380 for $199 shipped. Then found a Galloway Precision turn key RM380 kit for $75. Needed something small to keep in the Jeep.
I'm sitting here trying to talk my self into thinning the herd before I binge again.
I did a great job of restraining myself so far.
The force speaks to you. You must listen.
Some more reloading supplies
