Update:
Company said the supplier wouldn't provide an estimate for when the back order would be fulfilled, so they canceled the order.

Time to find more ammo... lol

I almost bought a Tavor instead of all the other stuff I bought with my tax money.

Fortunately, my annual profit-sharing bonus coincided with my tax refund, so there's a lot of found money right now. Tavor + appliances for the house.

Found a bunch of .22lr at Walmart, bought three boxes. Remington hollow point, $11.17 for a box of 225... before the panic, it'd cost twenty bucks for a brick of 550, so that's only a little bit above pre-panic prices. Wish they didn't have a three-box limit...

Few boxes of Royal 00 Buck. I want to see if they're really as good as people make them out to be.

Glock 19... for home defense, because can't have my shotgun in my bedroom. Spouse said so. Came with a tactical light. Going to get Heine Straight Eight Night Sights for it, and the factory tactical slide release.

SO! Currently have Glock 26 9mm with 10 round clip, and a 15 round reload clip as EDC, and now have a Glock 19 with 15 round clip, and a 17 round reload clip as Home Defense.

Now about that FN Five Seven for the car...

A 10/15/17 round what? :vmad:

- 2 Walther P22 mags from a buddy who sold his Walther but still had a few mags. $15 for 2. SCORE!!
- some no name eyes and ears for my range bag. Whenever I bring someone with me they never have their own. The range I go to doesn't rent them. (odd I know)

I'm sorry, would "magazine" have been less offensive?

I don't know about offensive, but it would have been accurate.

You don't have 10/15/17 round "clips", you have magazines.

Believe it or not, there is a difference.

I don't want to thread jack this. You obviously know the difference.

Modifications to the Glock 19 pistol I purchased:

1. Tactical slide release (factory one, from Glock).

2. Heine Straight Eight Night Sights:

I love these things! I find them much easier to aim with than 3-dot systems.

Waiting on the UPS driver to deliver some recoil lugs and an action wrench for my Model 700 project.
