Damn, I bid around $1,500 bucks on a gun auction today for which I (and my son) had the high bids. The youngster's bids amounted to around $180 for magazines and a bayonet. Mine were for a rifle and two pistols and accounted for the remainder. Add to that a 13% buyer's premium, on everything, and shipping plus at least two FFL fees (one may be a C&R gun, I need to check) and my bank account will be hurting. Oh well, time to sell something else and keep the ones I want to keep.
I must say, the guns I bid on seemed highly desirable to me - at least before I bid all that money away. Even after bidding, at least two of them still seem like they are potential keepers - at least for awhile of enjoyment.
They are a Hi-Standard Supermatic Tournament Model 103 pistol in 22 LR:
It looks nice and I hope that is so because I did not ask them to check the condition on this one before bidding on it.
And then there was this one, a Navy Arms 1875 Schofield No. 45 (actually think that should be No. 4 but who knows) U.S. Cavalry Model in 45 LC (hope I can find some ammo for it):
They look nice, I think and I think they are quite desirable.
Then there was this one, a Remington Model 550-IP .22 S,L,LR Semi-Auto in 22 S, L & LR. It is supposed to be in 90% condition. Saw one today at a Gun Show and the dealer was asking $425 but i;t was very nice. He said they usually go for between $225 & 250 on average when he buys them to sell. So, I got this one right in that price range at $225 plus 13%.
I hope they are as nice a they look and as much fun as I think they will be. That Schofield looks gigantic and like it will be one heck of a fun gun if I can find ammo for it at a not prohibitive price (of course I'll buy some ammo for it anyway).

) will again be devastating once again. The mistake was not to destroy as many of them as was possible when we had the chance - when we were on the ground in what is fast again becoming their country. I do not blame this on Biden even though he is the one who brought it to the final point of allowing them to regroup and expand. Trump would have done the same as most probably would have done any other president in short order in the current mess we call the world. I blame it on a general distaste for doing what needed to be done to get the task accomplished and that I think would have been to annihilate as many of them as possible with extreme prejudice. I feel no mercy for said group and judging them by what they have done before and now have done already, since U.S. troops left the country, just goes to show what terrorizing savages are they and that they deserve the fate I think they deserve; anyway that is my opinion. More on what they have been doing at

I know it is not, and in fact cannot be, just me who has noticed the commencement of Fox News' rapid slide into the swill, slime and sludge at the bottom of the news world barrel. Once upon a time, in the United States of America, it seemingly was pretty much only pulp type rags that printed stuff like that Fox has been plastering all over their online news site in recent times. The amount of non-newsworthy news they have been printing, at least in my opinion, has been staggering.
For instance, as I type at the keyboard, it is August 5, 2021 at about 415 in the morning. In the center column of three columns, on the FoxNews.com website, there are approximately 38 articles in what to me seems to be the main news section. That is followed by other articles, and/or repeats of some of those same articles, in subsections with their own headers such as Business, Corona Virus, Fox News Flash, Politics, U.S, World, America Together, Opinion and so on. Looking within just the main news section that I just mentioned and at only the articles within the center column, there are articles with these headlines:
