Late BAG Day purchases?

Post by Captain Wheelgun » Thu Jul 16, 2020 11:17 pm

Well, Tax Day was yesterday, pushed back from the regular date due to the Chicom Plague. Since that is also traditionally Buy a Gun day, did anybody pick up anything interesting?

I bought a Ruger American Ranch in 7.62x39 this past Sunday. I’m calling that my BAG Day gun this year. I’ll see about getting some pics in the rifle pic thread soon.

There's purportedly an issue M9 around this place with my name on the roster beside its serial number... but I've never seen the thing. Hoping I can convince SWMBO to let me pick up a Springfield Hellcat when I get home, whenever the Army sees fit to send my replacement over here. Does that count?

I was at an auction expecting to be a spectator, but picked up a Remington Spartan .410(made in Russia), a S&W .22LR semi-auto pistol, a Savage Arms pump 12-gauge, and an Italian-made Colt 1860 replica in full nickle-plate. Shiny!

Nah, but I did buy some high caps for my P99c. As long as it functions well I am going to make it my bedside piece and give my 45 to oldest son for his BD next month. (And thus give me an excuse to buy a better 45 later.)

I think I'm going to pick up a Howa barreled action in 6.5 Creedmoor

Stock actually ordered in March, but the plan came together around BAG day.

Been buying lots of reloading gear, not so much new guns this year.

reloading components, consistently. Midway factory second bullets keeps coming through, especially when they have free shipping. Another 2K pills coming in soon.

I'm trying to get a Springfield Saint Edge braced pistol using my instructor's discount...not working real well, Springfield is giving me a big runaround. I might try Daniel Defense.
