Visit to LGS Today

Dropped by G&G this morning and shelves were practically bare......people were buying every thing he had. These were not old gun owners, newbies!

Dan,

I suppose this is good news. What is LGS or G&G? No matter. On Fox News today they reported 20 million firearms background checks were done in November 2015 and "Black Friday" was a record for gun sales. Fox, always being fair and balanced, interviewed a RABID ANTI-GUNNER from "Cease Fire USA" who lamented about "all those guns now out on the street." I would have asked the fellow, "How many criminals presented their ID data for a background check?" WHO are BCs checking and to what good purpose????

As a retired federal lawman, I must ask WHAT is the USE of all these Background Checks? The California Terrorists "Passed" a background check as did Lanza's mother preceding the Newtown massacre.

WHEN will we STOP checking people WITHOUT Criminal Records BEFORE they "Nut Out?" The BCs never solved a criminal case I ever worked and have prevented nothing to date.

Another related point: After every mass shooting, relatives of the victims call for MORE restrictive gun controls.

As much as our heart might go out to grieving parents who may have lost a child, that does not mean we owe them our gun rights, or must not oppose vigorously their demands to take away our gun rights which in no way would have prevented the mass shooting. We can be sorry for their loss, but that in no way gives them a claim to remove OUR gun rights.

Dan,

Many thanks for the info. I just turned age 71 and would prefer to be age 20 in Lakewood, Colorado, once again!! I must say my military duty at Lowry AFB was the best years of my life. IF I did not live in Pennsylvania, I would be in the 1960s ERA Colorado. I am sure a half Century has made many changes.

Still, the people back then were the friendliest and caring I ever met. In Lakewood in 1964 I went to a riding stable and rode several gentle horses. I visited with the stable owner and told him payday was a week away. "No matter" he told me and mein Madchen to go ride about and he would trust me to pay up on payday. I did and the horses were regular friends. I am sure the horses are awaiting another ride in Heaven.

We will all be there for the last Round-Up. May the Lord be with you.

Adam

Same story around here

The gun shops I visit are as busy as our state-run liquor stores the week before Christmas. Hang tag prices seem to be non-issues. Everything in the gun racks and in the glass cases is up for grabs. I can understand why Smith & Wesson stock is soaring. I am glad I got what I have when I got it. All the best...

Pretty much that way here. Only thing I am buying now is handguns pretty much. And they are S&W revolvers for the most part. I did get an older Russian SKS in good condition with detach mag(4) and a 120 rounds of 7.62 x 39 ammo. Paid 200 bucks but it was in a 75 dollar hard case. Only reason I bought it was I have 7-800 rounds of ammo to use in it. Stuff I have had laying around here for years. For some odd reason I am looking for a Mosin Nagant rifle to just have. Ugly but they work. Just for carrying on the 4 wheeler ya know. Ammo is Sooo cheap. Well right now it is. But I bought almost a 1000 rounds at an auction for80 dollars. Now I have to find the rifle. Many things at that auction went very cheap. 22 ammo went to the edge of outer space. . I did buy one rifle there. It was a Savage and I only bid cause it wasreally low. Bought the darn thing for 200 bucks. Hadn't even looked at it. When I took it out to the truck I happened to look at it and almost choked. The rifle was an unfired M-11 Hog hunter and it had a Steiner scope that cost a fair amount more than a 1000 bucks on it. I unconsciously made one of the best buys I have made in the last 4 or 5 yrs. DUH!! My wife bought clocks and got a great buy on a neat little clock. It was a coach clock and had been on a stage line that went from California to Virginia City in the later 1890s to the early 1900s. Even came with provenance. Even if it is crapo provenance it is a neat story and the price was very reasonable. It even worked but I have a friend that does clock work and we had it cleaned and gone over. Cost more than the clock.

Nobama is still the best gun salesman of all time I think.
