    What have you bought firearms related in the last 48 hours?

    I bought this KleenBore cloth for cleaning the carbon and burn marks off my revolver's cylinder. I was amazed at how well it worked.

    I'm Impressed.

    Yesterday I placed an order with Amazon and it was delivered to my door in just under 8 hours. Tonight I placed an order at 5 PM and it was on my porch at 7:25 PM. That's pretty impressive service. I wish they sold ammunition.

    Nature Captured At Its Finest, Most Adorable, Incredible, Beautiful And Amazing Moments

    This guy came by last night to steal bird seed from the feeder. He looks pretty skinny so I think he's been spending too much time chasing the ladies and not eating enough to maintain his weight.

    I Must Be the Only One

    I must be the only gun nut that doesn't own a firearm based on the AR-15/M16 platform. I just don't see a want/need to own one. Perhaps, due to my negative experience with the early M16s that were jam-a-matics, it left me a bit warped. I do prefer the look a wood stock.

    Do you remember ?

    I'm so old I remember raking leaves and then burning them in the street.

    Taurus Tracker 357 Mag, My Thoughts

    I took my brand new Taurus Tracker 627 in 357 magnum to the range yesterday. I was very impressed with it. I had to wonder if the Colt Python that my dealer had in his case could be so much better that it would justify a price that was three times the cost of the Taurus. The Colt was definitely...

    After waiting 2 weeks the Taurus 627 Tracker in 357 Mag finally came in. It has a 6.5 inch barrel and a 7 round cylinder. I'm happy it came with the better Taurus grip. I can't wait to try this at the shooting range tomorrow.

    A local sporting goods store has a S&W, 44 Magnum snub nose revolver in their display case. It’s similar to the one in this picture. I’d bet the recoil on that revolver would be brutal. If I remember correctly the price was $1199.00. Who in the heck would buy a revolver like this? Why would you...

    How do you feel

    No, I haven't made any changes and I don't feel vulnerable. I have been prepared for a major earthquake for over a quarter of a century. And I don't fear people of other races or religions nor do I think the sky is falling.

    Ammo Prices

    Ammo prices have come down enough that I bought some 357 Magnum at $32.99 for a box of 50 and 38 Special at $26.99 for a box of 50. My local gun store also had a couple of brands of 9mm for $12.99. I had to stock up on the 357 mag since the Taurus 627 I ordered should be coming in next week.

    Watch perfection?

    A tale of two watches. This beautiful Bulova watch was given to me a number of years ago by my daughter. I wear it on "dressed up" occasions and when visiting my daughter. :D The cost was more than a couple of hundred dollars. This is my everyday watch. It's a no name watch with a fake...

    Retired life

    I love retirement. No one watching my every move, no boss, no rules and regulations. I can go to the gun range when I feel like it. I've traveled to almost every state and traveled to 5 continents. Once a month my former employer sends me a check and once a month Uncle Sam sends me a check...

    When is it time to stop buying

    It's never time to stop buying if you have someone to leave them to when you pass. I'm 78 and just ordered a Taurus 627 in 357 Magnum with a 6.5 inch barrel. Hopefully it will be in next week.
