Bid on a set of raw walnut birdshead grips on ebay for my barkeep and got them for $15 shipped, i was off of work today so i decided to mess with them a little bit, i ended up wood burning a border in the grips and did a simple pattern inside the border. Also had some extra minwax stain laying around. I will put a couple coats of wipe on poly on them over the next couple days. They arent perfect but Im pretty happy with how they turned out so far, the wipe on poly should make them look a little richer.

I tried lol. Only took me about 4 hours lol. Idk what they will look like on the barkeep, i did briefly put them on to check fitment but that was before i stained them. Put the first coat of wipe on poly on. Might do a few coats.

I stopped by a gun shop. They had a used Beretta CX4 9mm carbine. I was kicking around the idea of getting one as a partner to my Beretta 92X Performance. $799 used.🤨 that’s a bit rich. I was pretty sure I saw them on sale for $699 new. The salesman that knows me says he’ll cut me a deal. I’m listening…$650 out the door. I tell him not bad but I’d think about it. On my way out the door he calls me back and says, $550, out the door.👀
Sonofab!tch! Now I have a Beretta CX4.
Air gun Trigger Shotgun Gun barrel Gun accessory

bonus, it came with 2 30 round ProMag mags and 3 15 round Beretta mags.😌
I hit another shop and bought 2 new Beretta 92 mags for $20.
Stopped by Bass Pro in Grapevine and bought 4, 100 packs of 9mm brass Herters for $32.99 each.

Add to that a good couple of range days and it was a great week!

So I watched a video that said Beretta had been filling military and security contracts and never stopped making them. Still in production.
That’s crazy! I used to see them all the time, but not on the last few years. I know a guy who swears by his. He really likes it.
