    How has 2010 started for you?

    Like the thread title asks, I am curious how 2010 is treating you in your habit of firearm ownership, shooting, SD, and the like. Has it started off with needing to pare down the collection to pay bills, meh, or WOW?

    For me, this has been a pretty incredible start to the year on lots of levels. Outside of firearms I ran my first half-marathon in January (241) which was amazing. My year with firearms has been phenomenal too! It started when my wife bought me a pretty awesome Christmas gift that didn't show up until the day before my birthday:



    Then I helped a buddy out who was hurting and got myself a very nice bird hunting shotgun...Remington 870 Express Super Magnum with two chokes:



    As if that were not enough, I was able to fund the purchase of a brand spankin' new TCP this week!



    So 2010 has DEFINITELY started with a BANG for me. I think that I need to simmer down for awhile and enjoy what I have...

    Anyway, hope your 2010 is starting off well too. My best to you and yours!

    So far, not very good. Hospice is helping with my mom and I have been out of the gun loop because of this. I check in on the forum and occasionally buy a periodical or two, but my time is elsewhere. Nothing I have seen online that was introduced at the SHOT show has caught my attention either. You seem to be doing well gunwise, and i hope you enjoy your stuff. Things will change for me eventually and I am sure I will be back in the loop soon. Regards, John

    Bought my wife a G26 for her birthday last month. Other than that, keep buying ammo stocking up for the Steel Challenge season with the club. Moving from apartment to house, from city back to county, and taking a stab at starting a small business. It's going to be an interesting year for sure.

    John,

    Hang in there! Sounds like it's been a tough go my friend.

    Unemployment for me has lead to rather tight funds so firearms acquisitions have been limited except a Remington 870 I recently picked up. I sold a few other things I didn't need and bought an EOtech 512 and a rear BUIS for my AR15. Once I get employed again I will be looking at getting a Sig Sauer P226 or P229 in 9mm.

    Well...so far 10 is better than 09 ended. I'm employed, and we can pay rent. I had sold all but two of my firearms and my motorcycle, so for Christmas my family bought me my first 1911, and I love it!
    I'm hopeful 2010 continues an upward trend for all of us!

    Not bad, considering......I am in Iraq, have only seen my wife for 3 weeks in the past 9 months and won't see her again for another 5. Being here is about like being in a prison work camp; living in a 10X10 room; confined behind constantia wire, eating institutional food, working 6 days a week with nothing to do on your 1 day off.

    On the other hand, we are making more money than either of us dreamed possible, we net in a month almost as much as either of us made in a year in the early ‘90s. She got her Ph.D late in life and racked up a lot of debt, which we have just finished paying off, we now owe nothing on credit cards, have 3 more payments on my truck and then nothing but the mortgage. We have a very good investment manager who is putting “surplus” money in some very good investments for retirement and got started on that when the stock market was at its lowest.

    Life conditions suck but if you are into delayed gratification things look pretty good in the future, I am going to extend my contract to NOV, and then things should be great.

    Thanks for being there. Glad you are at least getting some benefit from it.

    John, I went thru this about 4 years ago with my mom. Hang in there and enjoy her.

    As far as collecting guns, no new guns yet, but Im signed up for suarez international course. Over all not a bad start.
