I haven’t bought any new guns this year, but... I did buy some armor the other day.. I know.. sounds crazy... with all the shenanigans going on I thought to myself, I have a bunch of guns but only two hands and if the world keeps going the way it has been I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have body armor lol. for front and back plates that can withstand a hit from a .308 and a carrier (vest thing) was about $375 shipped, but they’re on back order so won’t get them for a few more weeks...

Ha! I bought an 870 Express for $250 new around 1985 (if memory serves) and sold it 15 years later for $250. Should have never sold it, but just didn't use it that much.
I bought a used 18 inch barrel for it as well ( $60) , my home defense piece now.

13.99 ain't bad. I can't even find ammo around me. I woulda limited out if I came across that. The last ammo I bought was online. Almost $40/box for 124gr+p HST and 147gr Gold Dot HP. Both were 50 round boxes. A week later they were $50/box, couple days after, they weren't available and haven't been ever since. ~X(

I have a Mossberg 500 that I haven't shot in awhile. Been picking up 12ga ammo again here and there, "just in case".
I think I posted this before. But I stopped at Walmart and picked up 4 boxes of 12 guage a few weeks ago. It was normally priced to.

I've purchased, maybe 6 since begining of year, but have weeded out several, and will be selling ones that I just don't use very much especially since I purchased the Elite Combat....it has surprisingly and pleasantly upset the pecking order in my safe, so that a number of pistols are no longer getting any attention....so some need to go

Been trying to put some ammo into the supply chain, which has financed most of my purchases.....still able to find ammo locally almost twice a week, knowing when shipments come in and stopping in at mid sized general store and sportsmans....also selling some of my used pistols at price I bought new for, don't hurt either pistols

Added a new member to the band. Finally got the TX-22 setup with lots of Galloway Precision goodies. Had an issue with the optic plate not threading correctly so had to use the further back holes until Galloway gets more plates in.

Also picked up the FNX-45 I've been eyeing. Kicking myself for not being patient as 2 days after I ordered I found it for $150 cheaper than I paid. Still, in these times there's no guarantee you'll even find some guns again.
