1x 50 round box of Federal 115 grain 9mm FMJ ammo.

I'm slowly getting my 9mm ammo count to where I want it. :D

At least your rare "collector gun" fetish should be sated for a while. That's some nice hardware.
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

I bought another 50 round box of Federal 115 grain 9mm ammo the other day (been longer than 48 hours, but I figured it still counts).

Brings me up to a little over 630 rounds total for 9mm now. :clap:

You would think it would, but I just bought another 38 firearms, with 23 of them being handguns. They ranged from a Ruger American ($450) to a Wilson Combat Supergrade ($4800). I'm now up to 270 handguns.

Three boxes of Federal Automatch .22 LR. $18.00 per box of 325.

I did a little research, and at 5 cents a round it's the cheapest ammo I've seen in a while. I'm looking for a 100 yard round that doesn't break the bank. The old adage "fast, good, or cheap...pick two," comes to mind.

It does okay as a 100 yard target round, but not so great as a hunting round past about 50 yards

A2 stock, trigger parts, glock raised sights, mags for the LCP, and masking tape.... Masking tape is so I can ID my mags with what they have loaded in them, and the ammo cans with what is inside them. So far it's worked like a dream!

I'm curious as to ID'ing the mags by load. Do you normally keep identical mags filled with different loads? How would you identify them in the dark if you had to?

A box each of Federal .375 H&H (the "cheap" stuff), Nosler .30-06 and Brenneke Black Magic slugs.

Two boxes of rubber buckshot (for bears) and two boxes of CCI .22 WMR (for assholes).

1x Tactical Solutions compensator for my Ruger 22/45. I got one made for a 10/22, but the threads on my 22/45 are the same pitch (1/2x28) so it still fit.

I gave my .22 WMR LCR to my mother, but all I've been able to find for a couple years has been hollow points. Finally found some FMJ which I gave to her.

I orginally bought the revolver in .22 WMR because I heard that lightweight, snubnosed .38s were painful to shoot, but then when I actually tried one I discovered it wasn't bad and got myself one. Rather than sell the .22 WMR I passed it on to my mother as a birthday present.

Armscor makes some nice 40gr. JSP .22WMR rounds. They'd probably make good defensive rounds.

Edit: just discovered they're HP, but look more like soft points
