    Hopped down to GA to check out a place that Pineapple Devil showed to me a long time ago.. basically an old pawn shop that decided since they did so much gun stuff, they'd just turn into a gun store.

    This place is awesome.. rows upon rows of old and new guns laying out, and quite a few crates full of mil-surp weapons too. AK's, AR's, SKSes, etc etc..

    Anyways, they're having a sale on EVERYTHING.. then the guy tells me he got in some RIA 1911's, which I decide to check out.. after handling it for a bit and all, I decide it's time to spend some holiday money. :eek3:

    He gets my info and gets me setup to do a transfer to a guy in TN so it's legit.. with all taxes and my transfer fee, it comes to right at $400. Also picked up a few boxes of Wolf .45 for about $12 apiece, and split. I'll be picking it up (and posting pics) on Tuesday.

    Also picked up a new IWB holster I'm gonna try out.. we'll see how it goes. He basically gave it to me since I bought the 1911 (it's for my Taurus though).

    My dad also bought me a sick pistol case.. aluminum briefcase style with full foam padding. :eek3:

    It's in Chickamauga. :wiggle:

    Umm, if you're headed to Chickamauga from Fort Oglethorpe, you go through the battlefield.. at the light at the Food Lion, take a left. Then you just keep going down that road til you see an old building on the right with a Glock sign on it.

    EDIT: Found the business card..

    Before anyone asks.. yes, it's in the foam that way for a reason. The 2nd one will be coming soon, and it'll be the same way, but on the other side. :wiggle:

    Too bad I have to work today, or I'd be putting it through the paces. :rl:

    I love the Rock, but the foam cutting leaves me a little confused. I'm pretty sure that that is a four pistol case, but your cut leaves only room for two? Either way, nice heater.

    I don't know how many it holds. I got it for Christmas from my dad, and I cut the foam that way purposely. I wanted two side-by-side, just like it is. :dunno:

    Oh, I was also the 87th gun purchased this year in my state. Last year saw some 87,000 transactions.
