I'm slightly busy through the 15th.  As in working every day till 11pm+.

But I did already buy one.  Sold one too.  (Do I get credit for 2?)

However, it's an old one, so that doesn't really stimulate the manufacturers.

Oh, well.  Did what I could.

    I should be taking delivery of one that I already paid for - my department just finished replacing our sidearms, and officers were allowed to buy theirs.

    So I'll be owning a Glock (eh, functional, annoying grip angle) in .40 S&W (which I cleared out of years ago.)  :hmm

    I will not be buying any guns or gun stuff this year, let alone this month.  I knew two new/newish trucks would be fun.  Part of the tax return is going in the bank to be payments ahead.  The rest is going towards getting the house more done.  I am tired of painted plywood floors.

    It was a few days late for buy a gun day, but the first of the FAL kits I sent off to Arizona Response for building arrived today.  This one was an old Imbel kit I bought somewhere between 2002 and 2004.    Gunplumber did a good job,  looks like a brand new rifle.   I was surprised he got it back to me so quickly, I was expecting a couple more months due to his backlog.  Maybe he was able to get this one out a little earlier since I had already put the barrel on about 15 years ago before putting the project on the back burner. He did the headspace on it, completely refinished all the parts, assembled everything,  and function checked it.   I also sent the necessary US parts for 922r compliance along with the kit.  He sent the originals back in the box with it.

    Turned out nice.  The build and refinish was a little pricey, but he is the best there is when it comes to FAL work, and I was just not ever getting around to finishing it on my own.   Figured it was worthwhile to just pay to have the expert build it and do it as nice as it could be.  Paying to get these things done was my "fun" purchase after selling the old house and paying off the mortgage on the new one back in February.  I'll be looking forward to getting the other Imbel and L1A1 kit back later.   I just wish I had been able to use an inch receiver on the L1A1, but those are somewhat hard to find and I had to go with a DSA type II metric instead.

    I picked up my gun Thursday (it actually arrived at my FFL Monday, but Thursday was the earliest it worked, schedule-wise).

    My department just replaced our pistols, so I bought my old one.  So now I have my first Glock 22, a lonely .40 to feed amongst the 9s and 45s.
