    This is what I got:

    [​IMG]

    Glock 42 FDE
    1 extra Glock factory magazine
    1 ETS magazine for the range
    1 set of Ameriglow night sights
    1 mag carrier
    100 rounds Fiocchi 90gr XTP carry ammo
    150 rounds Fiocchi 90gr JHP practice ammo (it was actually cheaper than their FMJ)

    I still need to get a new pocket holster for it as the one I have doesn’t fit.

    I am now officially broke again!

    It was a long time coming! I intend to enjoy every dime of every check. My wife may have other ideas though.

    I hope it's there when I get of age. Just about every study I read says the SS system will run out of money the year I turn 68.

    That's why I took it at 62. The check may be smaller but, Lord willing, I'll be collecting it a lot longer! I'm taking as much of my money back as I possibly can!

    Enjoy.
    My father died before he was eligible. But he did retire at 51. So he did have some retirement.

    Same here dad died young and never collected. He too was able to retire at 51 and at least got paid by his pension. If there is anything for me, I'll consider it found money. Depending on it is a mistake that should be avoided if possible.

    Enjoy it while you can before you have to pay for Medicare. That will take a chunk out of your SSN.

    Not as big a chunk as the co-pays for my Nephrologist (Kidney), Dermatologist (skin cancer), Internist (diabetes) and Opthamologist (eye surgeries and diabetes).

    Congratulations! Money well spent. I picked this S&W 19-3 up a couple of years ago used for under $300, amazing to see what they're going for now on GunBroker and GunsAmerica. There's deals out there but you got to hunt for them. 20190215_115115.jpg 20190215_120044.jpg
