    guys i hit the jackpot

    I fell into what I think are 2 great deals Saturday.Saturday is pretty much gun shopping day for me lately and with about 6 stores to hit and a local show we made a day of it. I've been shopping for an XD and a 40 S&W. While at Fin looking at Paras, a guy came to trade his 410S Smith. They made him a lowball offer and I ended up with it for 275.00. I doubt it even had a box of shells through it. Five stops later I'm at my favorite local store and strike a deal on a new full size XD 45 for 475.00 out the door. My dad picked up a Ruger Mark for 175.00 used and a Walther P38 in great shape for 239.00. i think we did pretty good

    I've gotta shop with you! Everywhere I've looked lately, it's the same old stuff at retail+ prices. Great job.

    just got back from a short shooting trip........both function perfect 50 rnds through each of range ammo. Wow it's weird having 13 rnds in a 45. The XD was way better than I expected. Low recoil and so much better than the "other" plastics I've had. Accuracy was online with my Hk. Gun is still really tight and I can't wait to break it in? Any mods you guys can think of? The Smith was really fun to shoot and my buddy wants it already !

    Good for you

    by the way... In my travels this weekend I heard a guy refer to a shotgun as a "tactical turkey" I was in shock ! This thing looked like a riot gun in camo. What will they think of next.
