Sorry to hear, that's the story of a lot of places. Boom to bust.

Picked up the EMP and cleaned it up and lubed it up as it was bone dry.
Have another one that I need to do the paperwork on as soon as my 30 days is up from this one.

Savage A-Bolt in 7mm08 has the paperwork done on it.
Used with a muzzle brake that was put on it because it belonged to a small lady but otherwise in very good shape.
Came with a couple boxes of Sierra match bullets, 25 loaded rounds, 75 Norma cases and a neck size and seater die.

Also waiting on that other EMP.

Picked up the EMP (NiB)
The sales guy tells me it is number two on his list now that he's shot a friend's.
I get two or three customers tell me they want one before I get it out of the store.

I picked up a couple hundred rounds in three or four brands to test them out at the range.
I usually expect that ball ammo is ball ammo but after having a couple Walther P1s, one mine and one belonging to a friend purchased as 'unissued' neither of which would work with anything but Winchester ball and knowing that Springfield 1911s usually require several hundred rounds to break in I want to run these two through the wringer before I start to trust them. After they've proven to work with ball ammo I'll start them with hollow points. Hopefully they don't require as much breaking in as my first Champion did.

Glad your getting some new guns, and wading through the red tape to do it to boot. +guns

I expect I'll probably slow down a mite this year although you never know what kind of deals might pop up.

I wouldn't mind another lever or four, a lightweight bolt .308, another CZ or two, a Bisley or three or another 10mm or two.

That said optics, the HK clones and a few parts and ammo are perhaps more likely.

Slowing down for a while.
I need to get a new vehicle and that's going to take a chunk out of my discretionary spending for quite a while as well as probably require some accessories in addition to the cost of the base vehicle.
Not to mention my insurance and gas costs are probably going to go up at the same time.
