    I have been eyeballing those same guns. Like you I am tempted, but I have a bunch of Glocks and can't justify spending the dollars on another one. I also can't get over the fact that those sold in the low three hundreds not so very long ago.

    Exactly...I bought my 1st Model 22 for $269 in February and the 2nd model in March for $299. Both are exceptionally clean guns and were taken care of.. I am very pleased with the stuff I got from Recoil.

    Recoil usually has good prices. Unfortunately since the crisis began they have started price gouging like everyone else. Just pretty much impossible to get a bargain these days. If prices ever come back to where they were about a year a go I will start buying again. I don't know why I want so many guns, I can only shoot one at a time. LOL. It will all come down to shooting one or two that I like the most and the rest will become closet queens.

    You mean you are supposed to sell off you extra firearms and not buy another gun safe as they fill up? I'd have never guessed...lol

    At times I bought guns just cause they piqued my interest. I bought a bunch of pistols doing that. Some I didn’t really care for but mostly I have others I liked a lot more.

    I have a few I would not miss but how many times have I heard or read "I wish I would have not sold that one" I am not high end and anything under under a thousand is not going to give me a better quality of life.I have a couple I wish would disappear but I will not sell them.

    Funny...my buddy at another gun store called me up asking if I was interested in a Desert Eagle a few years ago. I told him I wouldn’t have one, overpriced and unreliable not to mention the cost of ammo. He told me the price. I said, I’ll be right over!
    It’s part of my Shock & Awe collection.:D

    I have the same problem. I still have most of the guns I have ever bought. I have never sold any ammo. I would have to need the money really bad. Although like Danzig I have way more than I need.

    Did I mention I wish I hadn't bought a G48. Never shot it. I did a straight trade for a 43X that had 10rds through it. Only 1 mag had powder residue on the follower.

    I have never had a 48 but I really like the feel of my 43X. Haven't shot it yet though. A lot of folks seem to like them.

    I buy ammo whenever I find a bargain. Obviously I am not buying any lately. LOL. I really thought I was overdoing it but now I wish I had bought more.

    Honestly, I would keep my 43x over all the rest. It shoots the best for me. And it's easy to carry.

    Anyone familiar with 9mm Largo? I subscribed to a magazine called Shotgun News for several years. They had a few articles but mostly it was for classified ads. I bought several guns from those ads. Mostly they offered military and police surplus guns. I bought a number of guns from them which were high quality and not expensive. A couple of the handguns are chambered in 9mm Largo. I could also get that ammo through them. There was a lot of cheap military surplus ammo available but it was all corrosive. There was some non-corrosive stuff available but it was expensive and difficult to find. Needless to say I haven't shot them much. I would use them as a last ditch though. I still have a limited supply of 9mm Largo ammo in both corrosive and non-corrosive. I may buy more if I can find it cheap. I also bought several long guns and a shotgun through Shotgun News. I think I will subscribe to it again.

    Update. Shotgun News is now called Firearms News. It now carries more articles. There is also a web version.

    For target ammo I like WWB, S&B and Fiocchi. Haven't tried much else. For CCW and HD I like HSTs and Gold Dots. I did pick up some WWB 45acp hollow points. Paul Harrel was impressed with their performance during one of his ammo tests.
