A young guy at the club is selling all of his pistols and most of his rifles because he just bought a very expensive trike.
I ended up getting this near new pistol, it had fired exactly 150 rounds! It was a very reasonable price, but also included 2000 once fired Winchester brass (looks like new, all tumbled, etc), a new set of Lee dies (like I need another set of them ), 500 commercial cast bullets and about 200 reloads from the club ammo loader (I have to give him the brass when its all fired off).
I have about 2000 civilian used cases and about 3-4 thousand milsup cases already.
I also have a Beretta 92 FS which I am not overly fond of.
I reckon I will sell off my brass and use the new stuff. By my figuring, I will give the commercial bullets to my friend (I owe him $50 for some Black Powder I got off him), sell all my brass and I will pretty much end up with a free pistol and 2000 nice shiny Winchester cases. Then I will hold out for a good price on my 92FS!
The Norinco shoots really well, I was surprised, much tighter groups than the 92FS. I suppose you gotta get a win in occasionally.
As he was leaving my place, he came back and knocked on the door. I went out and he was standing there with 1000 new CCI Small Pistol Primers. He said 'I have no use for these now, I suppose you may as well have them.' I know he shoots a 223 a lot and is planning on getting a 223 F Class rifle. I went in and got him a box of 1000 federal Small Rifle Primers. He was wrapped.
I will oil this baby up and throw about 500 rounds through it in the next week or so (thats how I run autos in). Then I will fix what needs fixing or tuning (maybe open the sights up a bit) and settle down to a whole lot of 9mm brass chucking.
I was going to buy a 9mm Bbl for the Colt 38 Super that I have, but I couldn;t resist a freebeie pistol!
My son in law is Chinese and guns are a big no no over there. I sent him an email tellign him he is now a gun owner (even if it is only for a week or two every couple of years He is over the moon!
