Last week I went to the local gun shop with my dad and was checking out some suppressors- decided this week that I needed one. Friday on the way in to work I stopped by Gander on my weekly quest to add more .22 LR, they had none but suggested that I try the new Bass Pro Shops. BPS was not far away and I found myself on the first day of their official grand opening. I picked up a 325 round Federal 'fresh pack', that was the limit per day. I went back during lunch to find no parking spots in the whole lot but I scored another 100 rounds.
On the way home from work I stopped at the local gun shop to see what I needed to start the suppressor paperwork, and they had a fresh delivery of CCI MiniMags, I picked up another few hundred rounds.
I had a hard time sleeping Friday night- could not wait to get to the shop! I went in and began the paperwork for an SWR Warlock II suppressor- it seemed to be a little better performer than the Gemco Outback II. The shop is claiming 90 day turnaround from the ATF via electronic filing, we'll see.
The suppressor needs a home so I also picked up a Ruger 22/45 Lite that seems like a pretty slick gun. They asked if I needed anything else and I said "How about throw in a couple of boxes of 22 for it" to which I got a "Sure thing!" and left with some more ammo.
The local gunsmith is in the shop next door and I figured it was time to meet him. On the shelf he had a nice selection of Meprolight Tru Glo nite sites and was kind enough to install a set on my G33 on the spot.
It's been a year since I bought a firearm, feels good to put some more boxes in the ammo cage and another firearm in the safe!
