    Talking Impulse buy today, updated with pics

    Well I had an impulse buy today. I finally sold my truck and had some extra cash

    So I went down to my local FFL to spend that extra cash and ended up adopting an M4A1 that looked like he needed a good home (after wife approval of course) for myself just in case Obama wins. It was brand new, strait out of the box. The guy behind the counter said my finger prints we're the first on it You can never have too many toys... I'll have actual pics up when I change the batteries in my camera, but for now this will have to do.

    It's an M4A1 Carbine .223. This is the picture from the Bushmaster website. Right now it's just a basic no frills version of it. It can and will be modified with laser sights, scopes and various other fun stuff once time and more money permits. I paid $759 for it.

    Correction: It is a Bushmaster not a Colt.

    very nice and probably good timing! Go to .44mag.com and consider purchasing a supply of 30 round mags. They have good prices for decent mags and I suspect those will be the first thing outlawed

    There is a local Army surplus in town I get all that stuff from. Believe me, I know all the good cheap places in town. They are so much easier to deal with then big chains

    Maybe an impulse, but a nice choice.
    Now add that EO Tech scope...

    I'm sure the "newness" and "coolness" will wear off once I eyeball another gun. Guntitis is a vicious disease

    I'm not looking for a cure tho.

    Very nice, indeed...exactly what I have.
    Now add the EO Tech scope and you'll be all set for the suburban insurrection...

    Stay armed...reach out and touch someone...stay safe!
