National Buy a Gun Day – April 15th

I didn’t anticipate to participate this year because I wanted to try to be good about saving money. I can assure you that I’ve had minimal success. I was actually saving for a Dillon 550B reloader to start experimenting with different loads and perhaps take up another hobby. However, because Bill at practically has the firearms I want – his gunbroker page tempted me once again.

It was only two months ago that he mentioned he had several special guns coming in. A few of them were Weatherby rifles, Springfield EMPs, and several other unique items. The Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special 1911 happen to be on that order.

So I stumbled upon the Les Baer TRS on “accident.” I didn’t plan on purchasing one – primarily due to cost. However, I’ve always admired the positive reviews of a semi-custom 1911 – especially the pistols that come from Les Baer. I contacted Bill and had him hold it for me with a 50% deposit so that I wouldn’t lose my chance. Bill certainly went out of his way to help me out. I will submit the remaining payment within a few weeks and complete the DROS.

Bill received the money on the 17th – close enough to the National Buy a Gun Day. It counts – right?

I also picked up a Ruger 22/45 pistol. You’ll be seeing something on that later…
