New PCR on the way!
« on: July 13, 2018, 06:48:29 PM »
$540 out the door and on the way go me from iAmmo.com. Yeah, baby!  My oldest daughter has my other one in TX and I wanted another, so I sold my Mod 2 .45. Hated to do it, but something had to be sacrificed. I still have the Mod 2 9mm. IMO, NOTHING feels as good in the hand as the Rami, the PCR or the Mod 2 9mm. Merry Christmas to me!

OK I'm calling foul, here!  Merry Christmas, means it is a gift.  Since you  also sold a gun from your inventory, you are still one firearm short according to sound mathematical principals. O0

What else will you be adding to the stable?

Computers and smart phones changed everything. Don't worry about the cost of a gun.

Once I realized that I had to drop $1000-$2000 on a computer (and the one I really wanted was always $3000) and that this must-have, super-duper, lightning-fast computer will turn into literal land-fill junk within 5 years, and certainly after 10 years; and now we're asked to plunk down $!000 for a smart phone that will last, what, 5 years max before literally not working anymore, buying guns became much easier. (My first Macintosh SE cost me $3000 used, and is completely useless today. I still have it, but only as an oddity. It may or may not even boot.)

On the other hand, with even a modicum of care, a gun -- even a "cheap" one -- will last virtually forever. $500 or even $1,000 becomes a long term investment that you can hand down to your grandchildren or sell in hard times. It'll never be worth zero.

The .45's, .357's, AR-15 and even the little .25 Raven I bought in the mid-80s still function as they did originally, even after hundreds of rounds, and after sitting quietly in a safe for decades.

Heck, even my ancient reloading powder and primers from the 80's still work. And I have some WWI (yes, World War 1) .45 ACP brass with headstamps from the 1918's, and some from the WWII period, Korea period and Vietnam period. That brass can still be reloaded and fired.

A (really) good friend gave me an old .32 ACP (7.65mm) DA/SA Mauser HSc pistol in its original leather flap holster and with two mags. I didn't even want a .32. What would I do with it? .380ACP, maybe, but .32? Useless!

Turns out the old Mauser is worth $5,000! It's really rare. Serial number 634.

My point is, firearms are not a waste of money. They endure. They, like gold, have intrinsic value, not fleeting value. And you can enjoy them forever, unlike that drawer full of obsolete, unusable cell phones....

$540 out the door....


My PCR was $582 out the door from a local gun store including the 8% sales tax. The PCR is hard to find, so I was glad it was even available.

Then again, I had to add $114 for Truglo TFX Pro sights, so the cost went up. But what a great gun it is. Very pleased.

But man, does it throw the brass. Flies like 25 feet to the right and back a bit. Brass everywhere!

Other nines -- the Glock 43, CZ P-10c and HK VP9SK, for instance -- pile the brass in a neat pile a few feet away.

I just got mine last week. I put in a spring kit from CGW. Pull feels awesome. Waiting until Monday or Tuesday to try out 100 rounds of carry ammo to ensure it fires

Absolutely! I grabbed mine at GrabAGun for $541 w/ shipping plus FFL fees. Not one regret. I would have been satisfied with a P-01 as well. Came down to whatever was available first.

Enjoy!
