A 200 round case of Federal Power-Shok 30-06 Springfield 180 Grain Soft Point Ammo. My son asked me to pick him up a couple boxes of 30-06 ammo; I will give him at least half the case - maybe all of it. I think he will be pleased but if he reads this I guess the surprise will be ruined.
Two 1,000 round cases of New Republic Training and Range 9mm Luger 115 Grain FMJ Ammo. One case is for me and one for my daughter who just passed her probation officer training and was issued a Glock 19; she wants to go to the range ASAP. This had a great price at $201.43; of course tax made it higher but such is life. Regardless of tax, I have not seen 9mm ammo that low in price for a long time. That's almost as low as the lowest prices right before Covid & Biden a few years back.
A case of 1,000 rounds (in two 500 rd boxes) of Winchester USA 5.56x45mm NATO M193 55 Grain FMJ Ammo; 500 Rounds Value Pack
A spam can of Barnaul 7.62x39mm 123 Grain FMJ Lacquer Coated Steel Case Ammo, 700 Rounds (anyone know how this compares to Wolf ammo, quality-wise)
Five boxes, 100 rounds total, of Federal Power-Shok 308 Winchester 150 Grain Soft Point Ammo.
I cannot recall the last time I purchased 4K rounds in one day when none of it was 22 LR. After buying three guns and a lot of other stuff at an auction this past weekend and now this, I doubt I'll be buying any guns or ammo for a while; yet, I will admit that the the guns & ammo monkey on my back is a strong beast indeed and it has no regard for my finances; so, who can tell when it next will steer me to buy, buy, buy again!!! It's so strong maybe I should call it GAMzilla.

My daughter officially graduated from her probation officer training last week. She scored 100% on the final exam and did very well in her firearms training. Never expected her to get into armed law enforcement but she needed a higher oaying job than her previous one as an investigator for Child Protective Services and now she has it.
She is another chip off the old block or so it seems when it comes to shooting. Both she and my son are crack shots. Both of them make me very proud, of course not just for that but necause both are hard workers, both own homes, both are overall excellent citizens and I am pretty sure neither will ever vote for a liberal leftist democrat. Bless their souls!

As you can see, it showed the new high bid of $825.00. What it also showed was the key word - do you see it. It's a bit off center to your left and closer to the top than the bottom. That word is in green. Yep, that's it - the word "WINNING". That word only shows up on the high bidder's screen. My son & I sent each other a few more message, me mostly hoping I did not maintain my place as the high bidder (because I wanted that other Colt - the one I promise to tell you about). Then at 0938, he sent me another text saying:

My son always mentions that AMT long slide 45 when he talks about the Terminator. I have an opportunity to pick one up this weekend if things go right - just no laser sight. Time will tell.

If you - a democrat, liberal, progressive, leftist or whatever you identify as nowadays - have not yet awakened maybe you still have time to save yourselves and your states. I beg you though - don't just move away from the problem and abandon your home state only to bring your ridiculous and dangerous lunatic fringe ideals, the same ideals that created all of the above problems and many others, with you to other states. The people in those other states, in which you want to seek asylum, do not need you to spread the plagues you have unleashed in your home states to them or any other areas of our nation. The funny thing is though, when you - you meaning democrats, liberals, progressives, leftists and such - have had too much to stand of the destructive mayhem that you and only you yourselves have created - what do you do all too often but decide to move away from states you have ruined to states where there are no such problems or at least much less of them. The states to which you all too often decide to move are states that are at least moderately to strongly conservative, states like: Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Tennessee, Texas, and so forth. They truly don't need you garbage politics and the horrible results of liberalism that you spawn - really they do not. Just as you are sick of your abhorrent creations - so are they sick of the same.

Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”

Well, truth be told the blog is not not new, it is just new to my list under the header:
TAKE A SHOT WITH THESE SHOOTIST BLOGGERS, NOT AT THEM
The newly added blog is The Glock Collector. Now, some of you who are more attentive than me may immediately notice that said blog seems to have died three years ago in March 2020; that is the date of the last post. I only noticed after adding it to the link list and despite there being no new posts to it in over three years, I am going to keep it on the list because there seems to be lots of good info about Glocks within its pages. For instance, I was trying to determine how to tell if a Glock has been factory refurbished or rebuilt. The Glock Collector made it straightforward and pretty simple at these two pages:
Now that I am aware of that info, I may stop at Hot Springs, on my journey back to Texarkana from my sons place, to pick up a Glock 26 at the Lion's Club gun show. We stopped there yesterday and I would have bought it had I sold any of the guns I had brought with me. Later, after leaving the show, I found out that dealers at gun shows often sell rebuilt/refurbished Glocks as new - that was news to me. Because of the price this particular one had on it, it would be worth it to me to go back and check on it. If not rebuilt or refurbished and if still up for sale, I may own a new Glock 26 before I get back to my apartment.
