It's been about a year since I purchased my 9mm. Now I'm getting the itch to purchase a new gun. Right now I'm not sure what I want. I will be looking for something in the 350.00 or less range.
A shotgun would be very useful. I would want a side by side or an over under if I do that. It would also have to be a slightly older gun. I like the detailing in the wood and the look of older guns.
I am also interested in a rifle. There's not any size or style in particular. I already have a .22 but if I found the right one I would even buy another of those. If I get a .22 it would be a cool looking lever action or a pump action. I do want a wood stock and not a synthetic stock. It may or may not be used for hunting.
My third option would be a bow for deer hunting. I haven't looked into this too much. There are a lot of options out there now and all of the bows I have looked at look like toys compared to the bows I used to use up to '97. I'm sure any of them would be better than what I used then.
The purchase will not be this year unless I find an individual close that is selling.
Right now I'm in saving mode to pay of the last of my debt. Once I have my truck paid off then I will think about purchasing something after I have saved for it. At that time I may start looking at spending a little more and purchasing something special.
Last weekend I went pheasant hunting with Dad in Northwest Kansas. I didn't even get to fire a shot through his new 12 guage as we didn't see a pheasant after walking through about 6 miles of fields. I did see a lot of big bucks, coyotes and a bobcat.
Having a gun in my hands felt good. I was hoping that Dad would let me carry the Ithaca side by side I bought him, but he apparently likes that one too. It got me to thinking that I need to get more of my own guns.
A few years ago I was content to not have a gun in the house. I left all my guns at Dad's. Now, I would like to have a few more guns of the bigger variety to play around with.
Son of a ****** - Even though it was after 8PM and fast getting dark I made the decision to try going fishing in the snow. I turned onto the Grumpy Old Man Hole road at Ric...
