    Also, my .270 will be sporting a new scope. I've mounted a Leupold VX-2 4-12x40 on it. The 7x57 will get the Redfield that's on the .270 now. It's also 4-12x40. But the VX-2 has side parallex adjustment.

    I can bring a carbine! Let me know.
    No you can't, they're not 100 years old :p LOL

    I'd make an exception in this case, but I know you'd rather play with the Johnson!!:)

    "Scope"? As in "MicroScope"?

    Now you got me wondering if I should bring one of my Garands. I have a little ammo. I might as well. I've got two. One is a cherry Springfield 1944 year model with a solid walnut stock. That one actually belongs to my youngest son. Then I've got a Winchester Receiver 1942 original manufacture.  I know it's been arsenal overhauled. It has a birch but stock and a walnut for end. I refinished the Winchester Garand wood but the Springfield is in original condition. Only problem, when you load the Springfield you have to load the left side first and the right side top is the first to be stripped off. If you load it the other way it jams. The Winchester is ambidextrous. Either one with Milsurp ammo will do a 3" group at 100 yards. That's close enough for me.
    I'll be lucky to hit the broad side of a barn at that range with anything less than CPJ's rest and a good scope - but I'd have fun trying anyway. Might be fun to compare yours with mine (assuming something doesn't go wrong and I fail to acquire).

    My "Mom and Pop" LGS sold late last year. The new owners aren't nearly as nice. That's where I'm 'on a list' for the new Ruger 9mm carbine. IF those clowns ever get one in and call me, and don't serve their friends first, I'll be bringing the carbine. I'm not holding my breath, though. The young guy that is there most of the time is beginning to make me see him as an anus chapeau extraordinaire.

    Mine sold out about 6 years back. He was an old retired Navy who set up business in Victoria for about 20 years. I miss him. The guy's that bought him out didn't have a clue. They were a gun show tour I think. They didn't last two years.

    Then my second favorite was just down the street. I bought a lot from them, usually things that Don, the first guy,  didn't stock or was out of. They sold out and the guy that took over is pretty good. He is now my number one. When your FLGS goes down, it's almost as bad as your old barber dying. Creates a few life changing situations, LOL!!!

    I'm not up for a 4 hour drive just to find out that the rifle I drove down there for is sold out when I get there.

    Bet you could call and have one put back.

    I could put one on layaway for you.  I think it 25% down.  You could pick it up at your leisure.

    Or would that be a straw layaway?

    That would fall into a REALLY gray area. We'd both be in some deep stuff over that if someone at that alphabet soup agency wanted to push it.

    Hard to beat a Ruger LC9s fer the money. It may not be a top of heap 9mm carry pistol, but works great, good trigger and very reliable.

    I'm not so sure about that, unless you have to fill out a 4473 to put it on layaway.

    It's not "purchased" until the 4473 is filled out, is my understanding anyway.

    But like he said, you can probably call them and let them know you're coming specifically for one and they'll put one back. At least from my dealing with them, I'd expect them to.

    I couldn't have come today even if I'd wanted to. Been one of those days. I'll look up their phone # and give them  a call in a bit and see if they'll set one back for me.

    I wouldn't think so. Unless things are done differently there than here the 4473 is not filled out until actual purchase, not when the layaway payment is made.probably be worthy of inquiry anyway.

    Bring money for ammo, he's got lots of blems on sale cheap.  17.00 a brick of blazer, 9.00 for 200 mini mags, lots of others.  Meet the CEO of Ruger if you have a mind to.  It's Ruger Days.  Best sale of the year.

    Maybe I'll mosey down that way tomorrow if the poo doesn't hit the fan again like it did today. And if he doesn't have any 9mm carbines left I'll drive back home empty handed.

    Mst Larry hornaday at Larry's, very nice guy.  Asked him about short barrel ammo.  He said Critical Defense has faster powder for short barrels, critical duty is for full size.  Asked how come they don't make .22lr, he said to big an investment for very small return.
