    I've had my truck broke into once. Three guns in the truck, a Jennings .22 in the glove box, a derringer in .38 caliber, and a Charter Arms Bull Dog. The only gun they took was the Bull Dog. My EDC. That was one sweet shooting pistol, but it only liked the Winchester Silver Tips. Turned in a police report, but that was almost 30 years ago, and I haven't heard a peep out of the cops about it to this day.

    Probably the Browning High Power that looked like it was still in the box, unfired. Traded it off for a POS Ruger Mini 14. One of those things "you just have to have". Big mistake. BIG MISTAKE!!:(:rolleyes:

    I have also adopted that policy, as well. I also have the fixed income problem. I just picked up 1000 small pistol primers and I hope to pick up another 500 bullets after the beginning of the month. I wish there was something I could do part-time that wouldn't totally wear me out and also not affect Social Security.

    2" Colt Cobra - Back up and Off-Duty
    If I knew then, what I know now......Hindsight 20/20. Although after making upgrades to the Python, it wouldn't be worth what many are today, I still miss it. I was an idiot for trading it off for a new semi-auto. In life there are always some regrets, and those are two big ones in the firearms department.

    I was Navy from 73 to 77, and one time had the opportunity to fire an M14, M60 (weighs a ton), and fire the M79 (Thumper). I loved shooting that. Shooting off the flight deck in the middle of the Caribbean. Battle efficiency training at Guantanamo Bay well before it had a special prison. Never got to fire a Vulcan, but on deck when they fired the 3 inch 50 cannons from forward and aft mounts. Now that's a bang!

    Just the one's that were stolen from me back in 1981. I have replaced them all and some with the exception of my Winchester 30-30. I will get one of them when I find a good deal.

    Or maybe that pellet pistol I found in an old garage? Took a 1 foot long cylinder of CO two to fill it up.
    Not sure if it was Benjamin or Crossman. Been WAY too long ago. But I did run into the kid I sold it to. I think he's pusahing to 65 now.:eek:

    Winchester model 94/22, the first one that came out in the 70's. We won't discuss why I don't have it.

    With the Bloop Tube you are guaranteed a kill, same is with the 20mm.
