So I guess the Democrats passing gun laws is finally worrying people. My search for an M&P45 began on Friday and expanded as the weekend went on. I called or visited every gun shop within twenty miles of my house. No luck. I checked online vendors: PSA, Brownell’s, BudsGunShop, RKGuns, and others. Still no luck. Then I checked other places: Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Shoot Straight. Nope.

I turned to Arms List. A place on there had one, but the store was a pawnshop more than 200 miles away from my house. They won’t ship.

So I thought that maybe a Glock 21 wouldn’t be so bad. I started over. The only Glock 21 I could find was over $700. Nope.

I broke down and called the South Florida pawnshop and bought it over the phone. As it turns out, my wife and I are taking a road trip to go get it. I just haven’t told her yet. I will have to bribe her with some other activity that we can do while down there. Or I will have to wait until a day I have off and she doesn’t, then go by myself. Cost? $550, plus a 400 mile road trip to go get it.

So, with gas, about $700…. 😉

    Yep. Gas price is up a clean 50% from a few months ago, at least around here.

    Thanks, Big Joe!

I have bought and sold tens of thousands worth of firearms and ammo on Armslist in two different states and have nothing bad to say about it. In more than a decade, I’ve only had one person not show on an AR I was selling. I kept that rifle and now it’s worth double what I was going to sell it for. Started to recommend Armslist on your last post but assumed you already knew about it. Congratulations on your find!

    I haven’t used it in a while; I just went to use it and found that they now require a paid account to contact sellers; no wonder there are fewer listings around here and most of those are businesses… they are driving themselves out of business with this change.

You are probably going to drive right past Borepatch Lenai on your way down I-75. Give a holler if your and the Missus (or just you) come by here.

    I was arriving home right about the time you posted this.
