COOKIES IN USE: NOTICE TO VISITORS FROM ABROAD: We appreciate our many vistors from outside the USA. I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.

NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

RGuns



Today I took an afternoon drive from Waukegan, IL to Carpentersville, IL to visit
RGuns, a decent little gun store with a nice selection of goodies and a small, friendly staff. I picked up two boxes of old 7.63 Mauser cartridges to accessorize my old C96 broomhandle, along with a couple of surplus ammo cans that are becoming harder to find. I almost made it back out the door with my wallet mostly intact when I heard a pistol calling my name. In the display case was a brand new, matt stainless steel, Colt government model in .38 Super. The price was extraordinarily reasonable, especially considering that the “run on guns” still is underway. I have not bought a factory new Colt pistol in many years and was surprised at how much their quality has improved. The price was around $200 less than I have seen the same pistol listed at other stores, so naturally I just had to have it. The Colt is now paid for; after the mandatory Illinois waiting period of three days I will return to Carpentersville to pick it up.

That should just about do it. This will be my last gun purchase forever and ever. So help me John Moses Browning, no more guns for me!

RGuns does a brisk internet business selling ammunition; like most ammo vendors, orders are backlogged. I honestly do not remember if they had any evil black rifles left on the rack. Visit their website, or give them a call and ask if they have what you are looking for. If you are in northern Illinois, pay them a visit some afternoon.
