New Aquisitions, firearms fun :D

I posted a comment on another blog and realized it’d make a good blog post.

Bill & I decided we moved Sarah Brady beyond bawling her eyes out, to searching for the razor blades this past week.

After nearly 3 month process, we finally got our permission slips from Mommy-state Taxatwoshits this past Tuesday.

On Wednesday we picked up a Springfield 1911A1, a Baretta 92FS w/2 pre-ban hi-cap mags (stupid MA AWB), and a Ruger Security Six.

Friday Bill went out and picked up a nice little Ruger Mini-14 in 5.56mm.

Friday night I spied a Sig Sauer 556 for private sale that was actually MA compliant, and we snapped it up Saturday afternoon.

Much fun was had at the range this past weekend (despite freezing our tails off in low 20F weather) and I can’t stop grinning like an idiot.

There are pictures up at Bill’s blog, along with a range report.

The Licenses came in!!!

OMG, WHEEEE!!!   The licenses came in!  I’m picking them up tomorrow morning!  WHEEEE!   Now I’m sure they’re Class A LTC -sporting, but that was already known given Lowell’s (stupid) policy of not issuing any un-restricted LTCs (unless you are in law enforcement or have enough power).

First gun!

We just ‘bought’ my first gun yesterday.  “Bought” as in put on ‘layaway’ but fully paid for, awaiting the bloody licenses coming in.  We’d seen a Ruger Security Six up in Mason at State Line Gun Shop the other week, and I knew I liked shooting Jay’s security six.  We got a screaming deal on this one, and I’m very excited.

We bought a Dillon 550B progressive reloading press, and everything but the consumables we’re not allowed to have by (stupid fucking) MA law.  We set it up over the weekend as far as we can.

Now if only the bloodly licenses will hurry up and get here, I’d be a truely happy camper!
