I need to stay out of gunshops!!!
Dang it,I just need to stay away from gunshops. Yesterday,I had my buddy order me a set of Hogue grips for my Springfield 1911 wide body since he already sold the DPMS LR308,so I go there today to pick them up-They won't fit. Imbel makes the frames for Para and Sprimgfield,but the Springfield's are just a little different so the Para wide body grips won/t work.
Then I drive to another shop a few miles away that some police officers opened up recentlly,and bought a Halosight for my Browning Buckmark Rifle.
It is a SigArms-Sigtac Halosight,a nice looking well built unit. For the price I hope it is well built anyway!
On the way to visit with my parents,I stop at another shop to see if they have any primers in stock. He had some,but not what I wanted,but he did have an old Winchester 255 22wmr lever action rifle.
I have always wanted one of these,but just about everyone I find is wore out. This one was pretty clean,but someone had broke the stock and replaced it with one that had been modified to fit this gun.If he would've came off the price,I would have bought it,but he was saying it was a collector and was worth the price. I laughed at him,and said "Well you just keep it in your collection" and left.
So now I drive to another about 5 miles away,knowing they will have some primers as well as a nice stock of bullets and what do they have setting in the used rifle rack,a nice used Winchester 255 lever action for the same price the other guy had,but this one is all original.
It has the usual bumps/bruises on the stocks,but no cracks,and decent bluing and no rust. So I just had to buy it along with some primers and some bullets for my reloading stock.
