Anybody got any new acquisitions?

Has anybody picked up any new guns..gear ...reloading stuff lately? I'm always buying reloading stuff. Mostly from estates etc. I recently bought a bunch of guns from a local fellow that included a couple of nice little Winchester 22 pump guns. An1890 and a Model 62. There were 16 guns total. But 4 were Grocks...um Glocks. But I had to take them too. I don't have much use for Glock/Tupperware

Hunting rig.. the Mrs. was sick of me always throwing deer and dogs in the back of the jeeps. Pulling one over on the sale's guy even made that deal more sweet. That's another story, though.



2003 Laramie with only 56K, and not a lick of rust. Definitely unheard of around these parts. Pretty nice woods machine if I do say so myself. Skeet, if you ever run across a couple Lyman Spartans that aren't cuffed... I'm in the market!

Not real recent, but. .. I made the mistake of perusing the gun auction sites a while back. Always ends up that I say to my self 'Hmm, I got dies for that'..... and then if the price is lower than I think it oughta be, well. . .
Anyway, ended up with a Herters J9. Got it pretty cheap, I suspect partly because only us old geezers would recognize what it is. This one's in 6mm Remington. Probably the chambering being discontinued helped keep the price down,too. Had dies, and even a few boxes of ammo and/or brass in inventory, so I was happy. Always liked the 6mm Rem.
This one had an old Bushnell Command Post scope on it, 4x. If I coulda got it focused clearly for my eyes, I woulda kept it on there (I think it's me, not the scope). So, I picked up a Bushnell Trophy 3-9, and had some Redfield mounts in the parts box, so I'm good to go.
From the rifle's appearance, I think it was a safe queen - little wear, no rust, and fortunately not over oiled. Actually, it was kinda dry.
So, I worked up a good deer load for it. . . and then never got to use it. A friend of mine took up deer hunting when she retired, and she's a slender woman with bone density issues. A light kicker fits the bill for her nicely, so the rifle's on loan.

Not a thing new around these parts as I don't get out very much at all, but I am starting to clean up the old piles a wee little bit, so every now and then I find an item or two that "I wonder where that came from?" So it's almost like getting new gem.

Joined the Bushmaster Club, just put the upper on my PSA lower. Michigan now allows certain rifle calibers in the shotgun zone, and I prefer rifle over slug, so watch out now, 450 Bushmaster whompass

Wow...Y'all got some good stuff. That J 9 is a nice rifle. They were made if I remember correctly by CZ. I've been a busy busy bee too Picked up a few more guns sold a few too. Bought an "estate" of a bunch of stuff from a fellow that died in a fire. I bought more than 3000 lbs of new and reloaded ammo and all of his reloading gear.etc etc. Still sorting through the mess. I got 7 guns in the mess 6 or 8 rifle bbls shotgun bbls etc etc. Some cleaned up pretty good. Had an 870 and an 1100 that were pretty dirty from the soot and steam from the fire..Cleaned 'em up and sold them for more than I paid for it all. Some of the stuff(ammo) is going to an auction at the end of the month. 40 boxes of mostly reloaded 7mm Mag ammo 30 boxes of mostly reloaded 30-30 26 boxes of 220 swift. Already sold 3000 rounds of mostly reloaded 38 sp. At a gun show I got a really nice Hollywood Senior Turret press for 120 bucks. Have already been offered 525 for it. And after a few years I just found a S&W M-60 3 inch gun with adjustable sights. Been looking for a long time. Also a couple of years ago I got 23 boxes of 327 Federal and 32 H&R mag ammo at an auction for 70 bucks. Last weekend I finally got a Ruger SP101 in 327 Federal...Going to stop buying guns for a while. Sure I will. Petey you want a couple of Lyman Spartan presses? I think I have one and they aren't that hard to find out here.. I even bought a couple of Pacific Super C presses one with the steel adapter mount with it. and I got a Pacific Super Mag 3 hole in line press....Big ol massive press

Went to a gun show last weekend to get rid of a bunch of that stuff from the estate that the fellow died in the fire. There was a bunch of powders etc from the darn thing. 14 lbs were never opened. and another 8 lbs of Black. I gave a bunch of the black to a friend who had a cannon and 2 mortars...One shoots a golf ball the other a bowling ball...the cannon shoots small soft drink cans with a bit of cement in them. Some I kept as it was that expensive(at least here) Swiss powder. I found a bunch of new flints and almost a 1000 musket caps(CCI). Anyway I took lots of that stuff to that show. I sold all cheap and sold 80% of what I took. Was really glad to get it gone. The bad(or good in my opinion) thing is I went in the door and the first table in the place had my almost Holy Grail gun. Have been looking for a S&W Model 16-4 revolver in 32 H&R mag. There was a six inch one in beautiful condition. For just a bit shy of 1700 bucks... Talked to the fellow and got him down to 1500...but wow..a lot of money from my small stash. So told him I had to think it over. Went across the aisle and down 2 tables and there WAS the holy grail..a 4 inch 16-4. Asked if I could look at it. Fellow said sure. Hang tag was 1070 dollars less that the other guns..$625-...doing something out of character for me....I told the fellow I will take it. I turned down 1800 for it later that day. They didn't make many 4 inch guns. The fellow I do some shows with is legally blind(for driving anyway) and has been looking for a Ruger single action in 45 Colt. The fellow had one of them also as well as a factory engraved 41 mag. I talked my friend into buying the 45(it was a flat top with custom grips) as the gun was pristine and the grips looked like Mammoth ivory...with some age cracks and coloration. After we took em off the gun to check...turns out I was right for a change. Tag on the back with the makers name and material. Did some checking and the grips cost more than he paid for the gun. We both did well at that fellows table. I have ordered a reamer so I can cut the chambers on the S&W to 327 Federal. Doesn't really hurt the value and I can shoot any 32 straight cased ammo in it...I also have a Freedom Arms Single Action I bought last year in 32-20 with an extra cylinder in 32 H&R mag. So I'll cut those chambers out on it too. Now I am going to stop buying guns...again. Honest!!

I am severely jealous over the 32-20 Skeet. It is a cartridge that has always had a special place in my heart.

God bless and One Love

Honest Injun... I am almost done buying guns. Haven't bought a rifle or a shotgun in ages 3 or 4 months...serious. I did buy a S&W M-60 3 inch gun..Adj sights and SS of course and it IS a 357. And I found a new Anderson Lower in my truck....I didn't remember buying it. Guess I will have to buy the stuff to make a complete rifle now. I might not even go to the auction this weekend that has about 60 guns in it

GOB the 32-20 is ok...but not any great shakes in a handgun. I had a Marlin 1894 in 32-20 for a while and it was a fun gun...but you really do have to reload for it and the cases don't last any time at all. My Marlin 1894 in 41 mag is much more fun

skeet,

At my age, I just want to live long enough to wear out all the guns I already own. Our big, annual gun show was nearby on March 10-11, 2018. I saw no bargains there in guns, but I did find a few parts, slings and accoutrements I needed for my stash.

Adam

Went to another auction and and bought a PPC revolver...unfired. Got all the original parts so am putting it back to original. Gun was made in 1971 and never fired. And a fellow had a S&W model 67 I just had to buy...and a fellow gave me a Smolt or Smithon revolver the other day...told me to shoot it and give him a reasonable amount for it. It is a Smith & Wesson model 19 with a Python barrel .Pretty gun
