    Not really a panic buy, but semi planned. I was going out to look for a Sig P365 SAS, but found a standard model with manual safety in stock, at a price about $150 less than the SAS would have been had I ordered one, so I took it. I saw a Marlin 39a Mountie in the shop, and went back the next week and picked it up, guess you could call that a panic buy because you don't see those every day.

    I'll take your word for it. I've never had to pay for one.

    Nice stash. Curious what .35 Rem you have. I've got an old Remington 141 in .35, I think it's from the early 1940's.

    The stash is a lot more than a case. This stuff became impossible to find at a reasonable price back in 2013 or maybe it was the ammo panic when GWB was president. A few manufacturers stopped making it for quite the while to replenish other more popular calibers. I think only Hornady kept making it and I am happy I picked up some of that with the plastic tips, the Hornady Leverevolution Flex-Tip 200 rain. Much more accurate than round nosed 35 REM.

    As for the guns, I have both a Marlin 336 and a Remington 141. I think that's it currently, sold another 141 awhile back.

    You must hang around rest areas a lot. Every BJ given by a woman is paid for one way or another.

    Only they will be priced above retail at the time and no one will want to buy them. They just want to get back what they paid in a down market.
