Just before the shutdown in Nevada, I received a $25 Gift Card from Scheels, but could not use it as online they were out of stock (a rush on firearm related items?) and the store itself was closed and it particularly was out of stock. Finally they re-opened and I went down and waited in line #22 of what eventually grew to be even a longer line. In about 10 min. I got in and walked UP the 35 steps of the stairs next to the escalator, which I have never used ever since they opened. Personally proud of that fact. They did not have any freebie OnTarget magazines (available online anyways) and there were ribbon rails around the handgun cases (kinda like the waiting lines at Disneyland), so I went over to the ammo department where a employee gets the ammo you want. No browsing in that area. I told him I was interested in some .22 Magnum and he rattled off some brand names and I said I would like some Hornady V-tip. Two boxes of 100 rounds ran just about $25 anyways and I made up the tax in cash. Now I am just waiting for a weekday morn when I wake up early enough and don't fall back asleep and it is not too windy, nor cold to go out into the desert to go shootin'.
My in the Army son of of 19 years just bought a Mossberg shotgun for turkeys. He has already gone out twice, but as luck would have it, on successive days, he spotted some gobblers, but twice aborted to shoot because other hunters had moved near into his line of fire. However, he shootin' buddy manage to get a couple of they had some cooked turkey for several days.
Sooooo, what have you bought recently?
All my shit fell out of my boat.....

Arizona, good place for me...
Three Choate E2 AR15 A2 Stocks, three PSA A2 Buffer Tubes and assemblies, five Choate extended A2 Butt Pads, two EGW A2 Bag Riders, one Luth-AR MBA-5 Stock, four Luth-AR Chubby Grips, one S.P. Enterprises Enhanced 6.5 Grendel Extractor, one J.P Enterprises 308 Silent Captured Buffer Assembly. Assorted A2 buttplate screws, and some other small sundry fasteners.

Now all (but my M4gery) AR's are now set up as Bag Riders, replacing four M4 Collapsible stocks. All components are installed.

I figure (and hope...) the time was expended wisely.

Of course this started that cascade...

That Hide deal was right up there with the two big boxes of M118LR I got that a member here was selling.

Liberals, everything they do backfires on them, tell us we cant go to restaurants than we spend the extra money on gun stuff - maroons.
I have a real nice M19-4. It was my first handgun...a gift from my father when I turned 21. It has the combat trigger and hammer....I haven't shot it in 15 years. Blueing is still gorgeous

Bought nothing gun related. Checked the doomsday supplies back in mid-February as things were ramping up, added some more protein, asswipe, NSAIDs, baby wipes to the stockpile. Slowly saving up to upgrade the glass on the SHTF gas gun just in case COVID-20 makes the government go full retard.

A second hand Atlas bipod for a Rem 700 and a MAE suppressor to go on my Ruger 22/45. The one currently on the Ruger will go back on the Rem Mod 7 .223.

On the first day after our lockdown ended, I brought a brick of subsonic .22 ammo for the Ruger and 2200 small pistol primers.

Got my Cabelas statement and found I had $20 in rewards points, so I called them and they had recently re-opened, thanks Gov. Sissylak, so we took a drive there and I went in and got two boxes of .22 Magnum and a box of .30-.30 ammo and charged the balance on my card. Hoping for nice weather after the weekend.

I’ve been selling and buying a bunch of gun related stuff since the stay at home stuff happened. I normally travel 40 weeks per year for work, so actually being at home for 8 weeks has been a welcome change. Being home has given me the time to go through my stuff to market items I no longer need and decide what things need to be upgraded. I sold a bunch or parts, optics, guns, etc and purchased some parts, optics, and a new pistol for the wife’s birthday. Online sales seem to be generating more traffic than usual, I think many people are stuck at home bored and looking for something to play with.
same here. I unloaded a bunch of crap and replaced it with stuff that I might actually use. I'm down to only a few things that I still need to sell.

Just an observation/joke...I see so many people buying bi/tri-pods, I think a lot of people are just takin' what the gov dishes out, while laying down! :cool:
