    What influenced you to purchase your first Springfield product?

    My family used to buy parts from them and later bought M1As from them. The first gun I bought was their first XDs in .45 ACP as I was into custom 1911s before they were. That XDs is still my serious carry gun, but I have added a Hellcat as a backup.

I also live in Illinois and have encountered both bobcats and bobcat tracks despite the IDOC's pronouncements regarding bobcats in Illinois. All of that said I...

    Mostly 10 per semi auto pistol. I have over 100 for my M1 Carbine. 12 Ruger 22WRM rotary magazines for my 77/22WRM All Weather Boat Paddle because I worry about them being discontinued My matching 77/22LR I only have 4 magazines for.

Our exterior doors have steel mesh and are on steel reinforced frames set in concrete. Locks are Grade One commercial long...
