Well my plans to economize went to shit today.
Went figuring if I found a REALLY good deal on a Yugo SKS I might pick one up, but wasn't holding out hope. Well was I surprised, a few were overpriced, but one gentleman had about a dozen of them for $139.99. In much better condition than I anticipated. $150 out the door. Talk about a badass SKS, perfect blueing, matching numbers, very good wood, bayonet, grenade launcher, night sights... Had to have it!
Crappy SKS manual, $5
1,500 rounds once fired 9mm brass $8
GOA membership which included autographed book (From My Cold Dead Fingers $14.95) from Sheriff Richard Mack and free admisison to the show (normally $6) $20
Glad I'm home, after the date I had last night $125 and the DVD player I bought yesterday afternoon $80, I need to settle down. Man, not being engaged means more money for daddy and NO guilt with more guns! Rock on!
