    It was more of an upgrades year for me. Scopes, stocks, reloading equipment, range gear. I only added two guns:

    AR15 18" SPR type rifle

    Sporterized 1903 .30-06 w/Williams sights


    But I re-scoped my FN PBR with a Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24x50mm, recently added the stock to my Remington 700 CDL .280Rem, got my reloading equipment about 80% procured. And other this and thats.

    What is your Stevens chambered in?
    I have the .25 rimfire but ammo is so expensive and difficult to locate. Our forum brother helped me out with some for a more than fair price, however the ammo is old and some take 2-3 strikes to fire.

    .22LR. It was missing the barrel, but I found one on E Bay for $35. Still working on it, fitting a butt plate and rear sight.

    US 1917 sporter- - - - -sold to me as a .300 Win Mag. Nope- - - - -cartridges won't chamber! A quick chamber cast solved the problem, it's a 300 H&H! Nothing like stumbling onto a classic on the bargain rack! The price I paid should have been classified as unarmed robbery!

    All I did was accessorize my AR with a forward grip/telescoping bi-pod combo, a bolt-on rail for the underside of the heat shield and a bump-fire stock. Should be interesting at the SE shoot this coming year.

    Still looking for a S&W 617 for my wife.

    zorba just my opinion from owning a few but they are heavy and the full lug really attributes a lot to that.
    If she is up to a nice .22 revolver a 17 or 18 may be better for her

    I'm gonna get fined........
    For a no gun year, I did pretty good.
    I finally found a decent gunsmith, locally, I had my heavy 243 in there for some love, stumbled across a lonely 308.

    Police trade in Rem 700 PSS, 26", HS stock, varmit contour 308. Since I had my 243 in there, he set the barrel back a thread, 're cut the chamber, and threaded the barrel and bolt handle on the 308 for FREE.
    Then, thanks to a gracious forum member,a lonely Marlin 1894 (jm) 44mag found its way to me.
    Somehow I ended up with a Weatherby MKIV 340WBY.
    Recently, a M&P 9c appeared in the safe.
