Early Christmas gift for me. A K98 BNZ45 S block. Generally I pass, but couldn't beat the price. They thought it was a RC.

1000 rounds of 68 grain Lapua bullets. I needed more bullets like a hole in the head, but for 20 cents a piece, marked down from 44, I jumped on it.

That, and 3 Blink outdoor cameras.

300 round can of Malaysian from Sportsman's Guide. $116.89 shipped and no tax on your military AAFES Star Card.

I should have bought two.

My three PSA AR kits arrived,......with five kits in the box. Guess I screwed up that order too. I got charged for all five. I'm either in the market for more AR receivers or I need to find some time to bust out some 80%ers.

Picked up a very homely K31 on GB. On the bright side it has a RSI scope mount and a clamp on muzzle brake. I still have to decide what to do with it. Found a few boxes of Privi 7.5x55 and a set of dies. No luck on a replacement stock. No one in the world seems to make them.

Got some spare parts and an enhanced trigger for my XCR, a pair of Mechanix gloves, and a Blue Force Gear double mag pouch. Cleared out most of the wish list this week.

A 98% 1927 Argentine for $600 out the door. The mag does not match but it is otherwise as close to perfect as I was going to find.

2 LBH, one for 5.56 and one for 7.62 x 51, in coyote brown, to go with the other vest and load out rigs I never use. Hell of a deal though, from SKD. I'm going back to ammo for 2018.

In addition to the M1918A1 BAR (Ohio Ordnance receiver), last Thursday I brought home an 85% Colt Police Positive 38 Special. Serial number dates it to 1922. Goes with my Dad's 38 Colt Detective Special date 1914.

Picked up a Filson ranger belt made in Seattle USA, a surplus U.S. Navy Enlisted Man's Overcoat (Peacoat) from Whaling Manufacturing Co. of Fall River MA, and an Italian silk/cashmere scarf for about 21 bucks that were surprise finds at a thrift store.
Planned buys were 3 FNP45 mags for a really good price here on the Marketplace.
Merry Christmas to me.
