Today was a singularly stressful day and so I did what I usually try to do to reduce the pressure.....I bought a new gun! In fact, I sort of bought two of them. (Bad, Brademan........bad!)
First, I saw, and could not resist a nice new pocket 9mm, in the form of the Kahr CM9. I've liked this little guys for a while and this one was a pretty good buy at $405. Of course, there is the very real possibility that my wife will swipe it for herself, once she knows it's in the house, so I plan to hit the range this weekend and at least get a few boxes through it. It will probably disappear into her purse. Right after I clean it.
Then, on the advice of ad on Facebook, of all places, I cruised by the website of GWACS and found that they actually have AR lowers in stock (at least they did this afternoon) in several finishes, for $170. It's about twice what they were a month ago, but still not a bad price. These are the polymer stocks, with a stock cast in, so I thought it was worth a try. Standard shipping means it'll be here by Monday!
Not a bad day's work and it made me smile. After the gut-churning news of the day, I could use a smile or two.

I did EXACTLY the same thing! I saw the speech by Obama and thought: "Time to get a Glock 26!" Thanks Mr. President for the advice!

I picked up my new gun today and took to the range for a few rounds.
Checked out the GWACS site. I've never seen pink, purple and yellow lowers before lol.
thats funny, bad brademan bad.............for real....good!!!!!
Unfortunately, they were out of pink and purple, so I had to settle for black.
Thanks for the heads up, though.
I've got my eye on the new Glock 30S. If I can only carry 10 rounds, they might as well be .45.

I should have mentioned that I also picked up an Obama gun last Monday. I grabbed the last Blue Label G19 Gen4 my dealer had. I actually placed the order for it in mid-Dec and they had it in stock. Took three weeks to receive it since they were so busy. Good thing they set it aside for me though! Paid $398 for it! It'll compliment my Gen3 that the wife has taken over.
