A pair of laser engraved PMags. One with the Virginia state seal for my AR, and one with the EGA (and it comes loaded with crayons) for a retired Marine buddy of mine. :mrgreen:

Wheeler engineering lazer bore siter.

Tipton rifle vice.

444 marlin brass to use as 410 shotgun hulls.

Carbide 3 way cutter for RCBS trim pro 2.

Then I had fallen for one of those 'just pay shipping and these 2 lazer sites are free' waited 3 months and called in a complaint. Received 2 a couple of weeks later. I had also paid S&H for a generic range bag that had a 'free' gun magnet included. Well 8 months later the bag, magnet, and 2 lazer sites arrived.

Just placed an order with Ruger for a Troy Industries QD sling mount and sling swivel. Had a $25 off gift certificate for the last five years that still somehow was valid (I'm assuming Ruger's gift cards or certificates never expire), so I used that.

So what would've been a 40 dollar order is now only costing me about 16 bucks. :clap:

ETA: Got an email from Ruger today and I guess there was a minor issue with my order. They requested I call them to speak with a representative to figure out the issue.

Took them almost two weeks to find an issue, so I hope it's nothing too serious.

I had a cheap Uncle Mike's style holster for my LCP II that I liked for holding the gun and a spare mag all in one small package in my luggage when traveling (assuming the gun wasn't in a pants pocket) that a friend saw when he and his wife visited the other day. She carries a small 9mm (forget which) and had been looking for a different holster for it. She wanted to try mine so I just gave it to her to keep and ordered myself a new one earlier today.

ATN Auxiliary Ballistic Smart Laser Rangefinder w/Bluetooth

This is a ballistic laser that clamps to and works with the smart scope on my BM59, allowing the BDC in the scope to get a precise range to target and adjust the crosshairs for a perfect shot at ranges out to 1,000m. While it would be cool to have I saw no need to buy the 1,500m version @ $80 more. Maybe if I change the scope to a different rifle, one capable of making precise shots at such ranges, then I might upgrade but for now the 1,000m version suits me fine as the longest range at any of the places I currently shoot is 600 yards.

Picked up a bunch of various Magpul stuff today (mostly sling parts and a fore end for my 870 and another grip for my AR) along with my very first OTF knife.

I also picked up a pair of OEM Glock mags for my G17. I would've picked up a couple G21 mags, but they were cleaned out of them and pretty much everything else. The Memorial Day sales crowd beat me to it all.

I should send you one of my 33 round Glock mags and let you give it the banana treatment. :crazy:

If you had an AK, I'd gladly make you a banana mag like I've got now. :lol:

My order from Ruger finally shipped today.

I got an email from their CS on Tuesday about an issue with my order, but a quick phone call cleared it up. Still trying to figure out why it took them two weeks to figure out there was an issue, though.

Got some extra mags for weird handguns I have. If the current unrest turns into something long term, supplies like magazines may be harder to find, I figure. This is what I get for shooting something other than a Glock that I can find anywhere......

And as I mentioned elsewhere, is part of why I'm thinking about buying a Glock.

My XD is serviceable (obviously, or I wouldn't've kept it for nearly 20 years), but Glocks and Glock parts are ubiquitous.

Yeah, exactly why my goto is a Glock 34. But I have some other guns that see general use, and may be highly useful in civil unrest for having certain capabilities, that use boutique magazines, so I blew my allowance all at once. Looks like sandwiches for lunch all week!

Picked up a couple boxes of Hornady Black .45 ACP ammo today (would've grabbed more, but Academy still has a three box limit on any ammo and they only had two boxes anyway) as well as an ETS C.A.M rifle mag loader.

Truglo scope--- don't know if the sale is valid in your region...........

https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/truglo ... alcircular

I haven't really heard of Truglo, but one of the guys in the shop is a past national archery champion, and he has excellent experience with Truglo bow sights
still debating if I should go back and pick up another

Can't speak for this particular model but I have one of their 2x42mm reddots on my Ruger PC9 and it's working well. The scope lens caps are crap though.

Just placed an order with Midway USA for a set of 7.62x39 snap caps, a set of 7.62x54r snap caps and a bluing touch up pen.

I was going to order a bottle of cold blue stuff or a tube of the paste type stuff, but I figured the bluing pen would be easier and less messy for me.

Bent the firing pin retainer on my AR cleaning the bolt last night so I went to buy a 5 pack from Brownells. They're on back order (ordered) but I also saw the KNS Precision AR-15 Perma Firing Pin Retainer while I was there and bought one for a temp fix. If it's good I may keep it and save the 5 as spares.
