I bought three guns i had my eye on.. Got a DDM4v11 in brown that was on my list of must haves. Picked up a BPM Patrolman for my son, and grabbed a R870 Police Mag that I couldn't pass up at $140. All were guns that were on my "to buy" list. Gonna have some real fun with that 870. Have been wanting to do a refurbish for a while.

I have been concentrating on an AR build for myself and helping my nephew build up his 80% lower.

All I did was buy more ammo. Lots and lots of ammo :-)

For that price, will it come with some strange or awesome provenance to go with the rifle? Or will it have all sorts of mall ninja gear bolted onto it?

I bought a cheap no name AR from Big 5 as a backup just in case months ago, it was only $599, I will just keep it for a backup as intended and maybe upgrade some parts as I go if I have the extra cash. No biggie.

I think it was more of an impulse buy, but a couple of months ago, I was at Academy Sports and looked over their AR selection and decided to bite the bullet, so I bought an S&W Sporter II.

I have so far successfully resisted Glockitis though.

I've been thinking about it for a long time, but Glocks just don't 'do it' for me, though: "BANG, BANG...meh"

Since this thread started I changed from wanting to get a ptr-32 to now wanting to build a retro 'commando' style carbine. That might take a awhile as it will involve the SBR forms through the ATF. I want to replicate the XM177E2. So I can't really rush out and do it, but now mentally money is getting earmarked away from the PTR.

For now.

Brianns, why? Unless it's a nostalgia thing, there are better options out there.

In Short: I think it is nostalgia for me.

In Long:
I read a paperback when I was 12 or 13 that had one on the cover. I've liked the looks of them from way back. I got a bunch of other stuff so it's definitely 'collector/project oriented' for me. Although I'm looking forward to seeing how accurate it shoots with an 11.5 in barrel. I found a replica moderator(the muzzle device) and decided not to have it be a double NFA project with two tax stamp charges. I drew the line there when I saw an actual moderator was 325$. It seem not too practical to tie up almost 600$ in something that doesn't suppress sound all that well from what I've read. As an SBR I won't have to weld the brake on it so I won't be permanent.

I just did some correspondence with the ATF on the legal sequence to do the SBR paperwork. One thing that I was not expecting was the advice I got was to not acquire the barrel until the Form 1 was approved. I had thought that a loose barrel wasn't particularly wrong to have in my possession. I asked for clarification on it.

This sidelined my polymer 80 project I was getting around to.

I still would like to get a PTR-32 at some point.
