    It wasn't that exciting but they never are around here. I didn't go with the intention of buying another gun but all the XD talk actually had me looking for one to just see how it felt. Believe it or not there were zero XD's there. And there were only 3 glocks. Alot of S&W's, berreta, taurus, blah.

    I wanted to find one of those pearce +1 extentions for my G27. Guess I'll try and order it online. Anyone have one? Any problems?

    I did need a soft case for my AR so I found a decent one that will do for what i need.

    Next I just had to have me another Glock t-shirt so I got this one.

    And on the way home I stopped by WalMart and picked this up. No, it's not a Canon, Ft. Knox or any other brand name but they were getting rid of them for $350 and it will be fine for my needs.
    Just got to get it into the house and set up the shelving, etc. sometime in the next week or so.

    I need to find a cheapo safe like that. From what I can tell all of the Walmarts in my area have been cleared out.

    Here's waht I did maybe you can try it too but you'll have to wait till late this year. I found a walmart that had about 5 of these and I put one on lay-a-way early feb. Keep in mind you may have to do it earlier.
    They let you keep it on lay-a-way for ~90 days I think. So after the season they mark them down but even if you have it on lay-a-way you get the marked down price.
    When I put it on lay-a-way it was 599 but I just don't know if it's worth that much. But for 350, I'll take it.

    $350 for a decent sized fireproof safe is as cheap as you're gonna get. That sounds like a good idea to me. The only prob is it seems like WalMart stopped carrying gun safes altogether after they got rid of this last batch. The one that I usually buy ammo from had 4 of them for $500 each. I went back a week later to pick one up and they were all gone :(. I do business with Walmart so I'm in a lot of them and I have yet to find one in my area that still stocks them.

    You won't find one in stock until fall or hunting season, I believe. If you go in aloit try and make good with the Sports Goods Manager and tell them to give you a heads up. Just an idea. Then near the end of the season (or when you only see a couple safes left) put it on lay-a-way. You only have to pay 10%. Then after that you don't have to pay anything for the 90 days. It may be 60 day though. Then it it doesn't get marked down just tell them you want your $$ back. No problem doing that either.

    hahah. No actually I was pretty usy today and decided kinda late to go pick it up. So I haven't had a chance to clean out a space for it. I wanted to originally put it in a closet but I think it's a hair too big. Probably gonna just put it in my computer room.
    So now I'mm gonna have to bug my brother and my brother-in-law and fater-inlaw to come back over one day this week and put it n the room.
    I'll try and post pics of the inside when all is said and done.
