National Buy A Gun Day

Today is National Buy A Gun Day. Since it seems everyone is posting pictures of the gun they are going to buy today (or have on order), I thought I'd do the same.

I have a Springfield Armory Range Officer 1911 on order from one of my local gun shops. I thought what a better way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Model 1911 by buying one. It is as JayG at MArooned calls it, "this 100th year of our Lord JMB (PBUH)".

The only modification that I plan to make right now is to have a gold bead added to the front sight. My old eyes need a little help! I've already spoken to John Harrison at Harrison Customs about that and he assures me it will be no problem.

Now, I just have to wait (or continue waiting) for the pistol to arrive.


  1. Hi,

    April 9 is national buy a gun day, 72 percent of gun owners support requiring gun dealers to notify state and local police when someone fails a background check when buying a gun. Thanks a lot.
