    I seen two on there. Looks like they are asking $725. I have found a gun shop that claims to have several left at $651. Believe they arw the 5.5" version.

    I’m trying to be more disciplined and stick to my plans rather than jumping on random good deals in the classifieds.

    I am not doing too badly with buy it now finger. In the last two months I came across deals on a SS M-70 Classic and a Browning 71 I couldn't pass up. I did buy a little ahead on components I need for competition. I also ordered a Prazipress.

    I've had the itch for a lever action rifle for a long time. A month or so ago I picked up a 1873 Uberti in .357. I really wanted a 45 colt but I found a .357 at Long Hunters in Amarillo and thought what the heck... already set up to load .357 so it was a no-brainer. Fun and very accurate little rifle to shoot but something about it just didn't scratch the itch. Brought it home a buddy today, 1866 sporting rifle in 45 colt. Can't wait to go shoot it tomorrow. 20200406_180613.jpg

    I've scratched that itch too many times, I've got more stuff than I have places to keep it.

    The last time our rural carrier brought a package up the driveway addressed to me he told the wife to take away my credit card. I think he was joking but she's not laughing.

    Went for a doctors appointment today. So I pulled in to KFC drive thru with the wife. She was hungry. We pulled next door to the local gun shop parking lot to eat. After I finished I told her it is kind of rude not to go inside since we were sitting in their parking lot. "Whatever go inside, I'll wait here" was the reply. I wanted some Lil gun but lo and behold they had two 8 pounders of H4350. I bought one and thanked them. Last week I scored Varget there. Life is good.

    Let's see . . . Some RL-23, Some RL-16, a bunch of 6mm Bergers, a similar amount of 6.5 Bergers, some Peterson brass, a trigger and a Defiance action. No matches being shot but I have been getting more-than-usual range time. The powder and bullets, therefore, are almost defensible. The Defiance was purely a moment of weakness and I cursed myself for being so spineless and impulsive. I quickly recovered and forgave myself, however.

    More and more...it feels like it.....either one, really.....the shoe salesman or the serial killer.
    Somedays I think I,'m completely beaten down. Somedays I think I could snap!
    This confinement has probably got everybody on edge. I took my frustration to the shop and opened up a barrel channel on a 40x stock...by hand! Sand paper on a dowel for two hours. That did it!;) I'm good for another day!

    I too have been spending a lot of time gazing at Ruger revolvers during the last week or so. I’ve got it narrowed down to 3 calibers and eight or ten different models. :confused:
