Finally, after saving up for far too long, bought the world's most expensive bumper sticker, but at least it came with a free handgun :mrgreen:

I'm happy that I decided to check around. Going price in all the local stores was around $1100-1200, but after a good bit of looking I got it for $850 ($830 with free shipping and a $20 transfer fee at the local FFL). Now to get a holster for it. I've heard that the P30 Serpa fits it, so I'll likely be getting one of those. In the mean time, I'm off to make some Kydex mag carriers for the mags (No, I don't want to make a holster for it. I prefer an active retention holster over standard Kydex holsters).

Lots and lots of patches.

Let me know what you think of that radio. I need to get a decent one for some bigger ops this summer.

So I shot the H&K today, and it's even better than I expected. The grip is textured just enough that you can get a very firm grip, but not so much that it hurts to hold like the FNX grip. Combined with the ergonomic contours it almost feels soft because it fits the hand so well.

That recoil though... I was shooting .45 ACP ball ammo, and it kicked like a low powered 9mm... :o :shock: :mrgreen: It's so easy to shoot and so comfortable, it made me look like a pro. Now if only I could find some .45 ammo for under $0.35 a round.

Photobucket is down now, but I'll get a shooting video up soon.

Will do, need to find some one else with a FRS / GMRS radio that I can test it out with. I messed with it a little last night and I love how you can tune by programmable channel or frequency. It also allows you to have two channels set up and flip between them with a button.

Looking into comms too. Still barely understand them, I hate how expensive headsets are, at least for anything decent. How do you like your mic so far?

Semapo NCPC being released next week, the temptation is strong.

Only the radio has come in, the mic and privacy earpiece are in the mail. Like you said headsets were too expensive for me. Even getting airsoft replica stuff would have cost me over $100, so I ended up going with these.

Also got another radio to test the new one out with. So far everything looks good about the BaoFeng. I mostly stick to frequency mode and tune into other channels that way instead of using channel mode (mainly due to the fact that channel mode doesn't match up with USA channel frequencies). I will most likely solve that by programming it with CHIRP.

Oh, what'd you get?

Content: LA Kings are up 3 games to 1 over the Blackhawks, and the Canadians are loosing 3 games to 1. Also went looking at cars today and saw a very nice Jeep Wrangler in granite grey/silver that I would love to have. It sucks that used Wranglers hold their value so well though. The brand new 2014 Wrangler sport with 6 miles was only $3k more than the 2011 Wrangler with all the same features and 22k miles...

Sort of content: Since I'm likely getting a new car soon, I have an excuse to build an emergency kit. I'll have to order some first aid supplies, but I realized I have way more stuff than I thought. I found a small hand cranked emergency radio, a ton of fire starting supplies, a decent knife and flashlight, and some glow sticks to put in the kit. Downside is that I'll have to spend money that I don't have on the first aid stuff.

Even more content: Noveske had a Memorial Day sale. I'm normally against the commercialization of holidays, but I was happy to get a free charging handle with my order. Funny part is that my order was for a different charging handle...

Gerber Diesel. Father got issued an MP600, and I can't recall a problem with that.

Also content: Found someone making a hard plastic version of the CP mask from HL2. Most cosplayers use soviet gas mask, but the in game mask is fiberglass. It looks brilliant, and he's working on making some extras too.

Oh, nice. I have the MP600 that I bought off a Marine returning from deployment, and I love it. Took a bit to clean all the sand off, but it was the best $20 I ever spent.
