Default Recent Gun Purchases

I hit up the Houston Gun Show this weekend. My wife decided she wanted to carry my subcompact XD9, so I decided to pick up a Glock 26 gen 4 to replace it. I had a G26 gen 3 before it was stolen out of my truck.

My father in law picked up a Sig P290 which I am not a fan of. Its heavy, ugly, and I don't like the feel.

Mother in law picked up a Ruger LC9. Excellent gun for the price. I highly recommend it.

Right on! Nothing says Family Fun like an outing to the gun show. And the M-I-L buying a new CCW? Priceless.

Love Gun Shows haven't been to one in years.

I bought my last 3 guns at 2 different local Gun Shops.

Sounds like a fun family outing can't do that with my family as my Mom doesn't understand the necessity of firearms or new ammo.

By the way, my compliments on the name McFroggin. I'm admiring.

Yes, almost everyone in both families has a CHL. The final decision to marry my wife came after I found out her uncle has 100+ firearms including night vision and thermal imaging. Its hard to not marry into such an amazing family.
