What I Did for August 28th

Well, I did go to the range and dispose of about 150 rounds of ammunition, but I also won an auction on a used Browning Citori over at Red’s Trading Post.  Those of you who have been following know that I was in the market for an O/U.  My friend’s dad has a Citori, which I got to shoot when I was down in Texas, and I liked it.  It was from the same era as the one I’m aquiring from Ryan.

I wasn’t quite ready to spend the money on a new Citori (Ryan has one of those too if you’re interested), but I figured I would get a used one in decent shape, and if I got more into clay shooting, or hunting, that I could always sell it in and get an new one later.  The nice thing about guns is, if you take care of them, they hold their value.  The new ones have removable chokes, whereas the older models have fixed mod/full chokes.

I saw Ryan had a used Browning Citori that was close to what I was looking for, and about the price I was willing to pay, so I figured why not.  I get the gun I want, and I can send some business to Red’s, and also some to my local FFL.  You can see all Red’s gun broker auctions here.  If you’re in the market for a gun, take a look, and help out a business that’s being harassed by the ATF.

Now I just need to talk to my local FFL, get the money to Ryan, and wait for it to arrive; hopefully not while PICS is down.  I was happy to see that Ryan did a brisk business in ammo and hats yesterday.  Good show everyone!
