Getting slammed with crap I ordered months ago and forgot about it.
If any of that crap happens to be 'extra' 223 ammo, I've got a buddy looking for some

And yes, it looks like it can get expensive. Like I don't have too many hobbies already draining my pocket book.
Was talking to a couple of friends today that have done some sporting clays shooting. Both of them prefer an autoloader--specifically the Beretta--with screw in chokes. Although barrel length preference is sort of an individual thing, 28" or 30" seems to be the most popular choices among that crowd, at least with the semi-autos.

DSG is great.
They sent me a heads up email that they may have shipped me wrong mags.
Sure enough, two were wrong ones that don't lock in my AR10.
New ones on the way with a return shipping label.

Took my daughter shooting for the first time a few days ago. She started out on the Ruger 10/22 and also shot the S&W M&P 15-22 I got for her a few days ago. She had a blast and can't wait to go again!

Mags are popping up all over the place.
Palmetto has the C products for $12. Good mags for money.

You can have it shipped to my FFL if it makes it any easier.

I'm trying to figure out any way I can come up with the money for a O/U shotgun.
