    So'd anyone splurge and get themselves a new carry piece?

    I did.



    NDS stamped, so it's an actual German Police gun.

    Ooooh that is nifty!! I will have to meet up with you as I have always wanted to shoot one of those!

    I purchased 2000 primers and 2000 lead projectiles and some powder to load 9mm!

    I got a new motorcycle...it's allowed me to OC in many new places. It was supposed to help finish my long range .30cal rifle project, but when my buddy laid my old bike down I had to replace it.

    I still intend to finish the build by the end of this summer.

    I've been riding like crazy, but I haven't taken any pics yet. Perhaps tomorrow weather depending. It's a mint-condition '82 Suzuki GS850L. 4 cylinder, duel-overhead cam, 81 horsepower, w/a 9000rpm redline. Runs glassy smooth and came with all the extra goodies (though right now it's stripped down to pure riding goodness). I've put a couple thousand miles on it already this riding season. My dad got me a really nice Miami Classic shoulder holster for my Dan Wesson for Christimas. He's pretty awesomefor an 'ol man.

    I got a new-to-me car, a whole bunch of trees and plants for the yard, and money put aside for my annual trip to Colorado.

    It's going to be hard pressed to find a month where I don't ride it. I rode my bike last year on Dec 31 and Jan 1. If the roads are clear and it's above freezing I'll ride. I love old air-cooled rice burners.This isn't my first...though it is my largest.I'mhoping to add a liquid-cooled sportbike in the future. That said,this bike is an absolute blast and makes very few compromises. Surprisingly quick, efficient, and also surprising on the handling front. I ride the heck out of any bikeI own, I have yet to findone that wasn't up to the task.

    I haven't gotten anything yet.

    Then again, I haven't gotten my tax return yet either. I do plan on getting a Mossy HD shotty though. Pics to come.

    Nice, i was looking at these on their site last night. Once I finally get my CPL this will be one of my first CC weapons, along with a M&P40c.

    I am hoping to get my return soon so I can buy another OC weapon, the FN Five/Seven.

    I removed the serial numbers for posting and the space looked bare so I PhotoShop'd my usernae onto it.

    I can't get over how light it is either. I walked around the store for an hour earlier this morning to get some groceries with my Nike pants on and even though I didn't have the string tied very tight I managed to not pants myself once.

    I bought mine a few months back and it quickly became my favorite, you don't even feel your carrying it. Shoots awesome, feels awesome.. IMHO Ruger hit a grand slam with this one and I was NOT a revolver guy

    The specs say 38, but does not say anything about +P. Do you know if it will handle +P? I have been looking for a compact revolver. This one is interesting.

    Sure thing, just let me know when you're heading out to the range. I'm not finicky, you're more than welcome to shoot some of your reloads through it.

    ~70s CB750s are absolutely excellent.

    I'm always looking for one to buy on the supercheap, as a cafe project.
