A couple of weeks ago, I made a local private purchase of a Sig M11-A1 that owner said had only 300 rounds through it. Stripped the gun, and he wasn't exaggerating. No "smiley face" on the barrel, or signs of wear on the frame's rails. The package included a great Safariland holster and two Magtech 17-round mags, in addition to the three 15-round Sig mags that came with the box. He also included E-2 grips I could exchange, if I liked.

ATI Titan.
Won a Taurus G2 9mm in a raffle from a local sporting goods store.
Took the $250 store credit, paid the $172 difference with prepaid Amex gift cards I had accumulated.

My latest acquisition is the Springfield Armory Saint 556 pistol. I opted for the PDW brace as a replacement for the stock brace, simple mbus on back with a laser on front for now and ordering the Echo Binary II trigger, should be a lot of fun at the range once I get the triggers swapped.

This Python was sold by a fellow member on another forum who lives just a couple miles from where I grew up in NY. I'm a Floridian now so it's being shipped down here to warmer climes. Your cost estimate was spot on which I considered an excellent deal considering its age, condition, and barrel size.

I was being conservative, these bring closer to 2,500 and easily more in that condition! What a score brother, makes me wanna cry. Enjoy, but don't wear too much bluing off fondling it! lol

I had been trying to slowly reduce my "accumulation" of firearms, but when opportunity presents itself I have to take advantage of it.

This S&W 32 Hand Ejector Mod 30-1, NIB, just sort of fell in my lap so it had to come home to join it's close relatives.



Then a week ago at an auction a S&W "E" Series 1911, NIB, was selling so low I just couldn't let anyone else get it so cheap, I bid and no one upped it.



The disease is awful.

Took advantage of the MA tax free weekend to buy a Springfield XD-E in 9mm. I won't be able to pick it up until early next week, but I'm interested to see how well it shoots.

My first Ruger...a Mark IV Hunter with a fluted barrel and hi-vis front sight. It's an absolutely beautiful gun.

Picked up a Vortex Viper 6.5x20 mil-dot scope. Mounted it on my T/C Compass in 6.5 Creedmoor. Club I belong to has a multi-discipline facility, including a 1000yd range.

For those of you who aren't familar with the Compass, you need to look closely at them. May be a budget rifle, but they can shoot. With proper loads, and a decent shooter 1/2 moa @100yds is quite doable.

It just happened to be sitting on the bottom shelf of my little Vermont LGS, in his display case all alone between rows of plastic fantasticks and a couple of alloy revolvers with neon colored pink and green grips. I had been following a few Mark IVs on GunBroker and watching Hickok45 and 22Plinkster YouTubes about them into the wee hours of the morning for a few weeks (that's my usual prepurchase routine as I ramp up to take the plunge) and had only stopped in to inquire about the possibility of ordering a Mark IV Competition model. I honestly did not expect to see one in that shop. The Ruger sign in the window drew me in. So...while I found mine totally by accident, they are out there.

While I think I would have preferred the iron front sight on the Competition model over the hi-vis sight of the Hunter, and despite being right handed, I preferred the Hunter's more symmetrical stock grips over the Competition's stock grips with the left side thumb rest. Each Model of the Mark IV had a detail I wanted and a detail that detracted. That was my dilemma (talk about luxury problems!), but I think adding a red dot sometime in the future will make the larger front sight of the Hunter a moot point at the distances I like to use a target pistol.
