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.


  1. DROOL!!!


    Okay, yes. Definitely need to arrange a get-together. I was drooling over that 556 and trying to figure out if I could get by with only one kidney…

  2. CDNN has some good rubber grips for the Security Six, If you like that sort of thing. (their wood grips don’t fit well IIRC.)

  3. Those look nice, Mad Saint Jack. I’ve got a set of Hogues to go on it.. but I actually really like the wood, I’m surprised.
