    Those of us from NCGO are familiar with a similar thread. Didn't see one here (unless I over-looked it) and thought I'd start one. I recently purchased a Chief Jason holster for my 9c. Went to the Greenville show this morning and purchased an ammo can of 5.56 brass. Drove over to Academy and found a RCBS 3 die 380 TC set on clearance for $19.98!

    Picked up a couple pounds of powder at Eastern Outfitters in Hampstead. If you are in the area, get your hands on one of the attractions coupon books the schools sell as fundraisers, or find a friend that has one that doesnt shop there. They put 4 coupons in them good for $10 off the purchase of $50 or more. Every little bit helps.

    I recently traded for a Rossi (pre-safety) 16" lever action in .357. I've had a couple of the 20" guns over the years, but this is my first 16' one. Looking forward to testing it out shortly.

    I bought 2 more mags for my comp gun. Some TTI base plates for the same. A PSA pistol upper for my lower that has been sitting in the safe since I sold the last upper (thinking I was gonna go in a different direction but ended up missing the pistol AR). Some accessories for the AR pistol (hand stop, rail covers, MBUS). Probably will order some ammo now that I think about it.

    I went in Gander Mountain this morning and they had Federal bulk 325 packs of .22LR for $19.99 and CCI Mini Mags for $6.99/100. I don't need any but I bought 1000 rounds of the CCI because, well, just because.

    The vendors at the gun show(s) apparently have not received the message that stores are getting 22LR in more frequently now (although it is mostly Federal Automatch 325). They were asking $30 for the Automatch. The bigger bulk packs (500/525) were $45-$50. Went to Academy after I left and they had the AutoMatch for $18.99. Winchester Western 525 count for $28.99.

    500 pcs of .357 Starline Brass & a 500 box of Missouri Bullet Company's .358" 180gr LWFN. Also ordered a buffer, recoil spring, sear, sear spring, L & R extractors & front sight from Numrich to restore my childhood '69 Marlin 99M1.

    Helped a buddy scrounge the 'net today & order up a nice 16" mid-gas AR upper & associated pieces/parts to put together a pretty decent AR for short money.

    Most recent, an Ameri-glow U notch serrated rear sight for my M&P to replace the tritium dots.
    Judging by today it was money well spent. Now to do something about that front...

    It's hard to buy stuff at the gun show when you're manning the booth by yourself. But, lucky me...the guy next to me today was selling Hornady Critical Defense for $15, or 2/$25. Grabbed one box of 9mm and one of .40...for revolvers I don't even own, yet. :cool:

    Bought some handgun hangers from gun storage solutions online - freed up a fair amount of room in my safe and made things a little more accessible.

    Picked up a surefire 951 for one of my rifles at the greensboro gunshow. Stopped at west mountain pawn a few days ago and scored 2 20 round factory beretta 92 mags for 20$ a piece otd. I usually buy a box or two of 9mn ammo every week when i am at walmart. I consider it to be part of the grocery budget.

    I put together another AR15 budget Lower. Need an upper to match, but debating what to spend my bones on. I'm also eyeballing a low end deer rifle as I don't really have one.

    Great gun. Don't think mine's a very early model (forget the difference) but easily one of my favorites.

    Holster/rig, grips, mag bases, springs, etc etc. for gun I can't afford.

    Buying the gun doesn't even get you started. This is what you find when you get into cork sniffer match gunz.

    I made a payment on my credit card bill. There's ~75% chance that was firearm related.
