I haven’t bought any guns in years, but in 2021, I traded my Gen 1 LCP FOR a LCP Max. No one here (classifieds) would help a poor widow lady out(or me) by buying her late husbands Bounty Hunter SA 4 5/8 inch barrel in .45 Colt. So in a “fit” of compassion (cough, cough), I bought it. I carry the LCP the most, but I did hunt with the .45. I sold a NAA .22LR derringer, which gave me money to buy .45 Colt primed cases (100), plus a bunch of projectiles. Previously I had bought the old gentleman’s powders(black and smokeless). It seems the lady and her daughters had worked at Accurate Arms for several years :). The .45 has been the most fun of the two guns. I helped finance the .45 by selling off some of my stockpiled .22 LR ammo. The things we do on a fixed income to further our addiction? lol

2021 was an interesting year. Ammo still hard to find and expensive.

Guns were a little easier. Got a WW2 .45 from CMP (very happy with it), a Glock Gen 3 17, a Sig Sauer P226 MK25 (been hunting for this for 2 years), and finally an H&K MP5 .22LR. :D

2021, only bought a CZ P07 to replace my 1994 EDC 6906. By Summer I might be ready for the transition. Joe

Haven't bought anything in about 2-3 years. Nothing out there appealed to me. However in 2021 I did the opposite -- sold off 20 Lee-Enfields, Marlins, US 1903 and 1917. Couldn't believe the prices some collectors paid. I figured at age 75, it was about time to really thin the collection.

Snake45, yes I polished it to try and get rid of some handling marks. It turned out pretty nice.

I bought a S&W 4046 in .40 cal.

It doesn’t look as good as this stock photo though. Mine looks like it was carried by a gorilla, it’s a Brinks turn in, but it works.

Greetings, Gentlemen,
Back in 1955 I had the pleasure of holding and inspecting a Mannlicher-Schoenauer carbine. I fell in love with it, but it was way out of my price range. I vowed someday I would own one. Two months ago I bought a 1961 MCA in .270 Win. at auction. What a dream come true!

I am now 86 years old with RA and third pacemaker located right where butt stock would rest. I may never fire it, but in the mean time I am working on how to over come this problem. Can't post photo as I dropped Photo-Bucket. Wish me luck.

Congratulations on your purchase. Where there's a will there's a way, I'm sure you can find a way to shoot your dream gun. Good luck to you sir.
