After years and years of thinking about buying one, I finally went down to the Krauswerks and bought a CZ-75!

It is sad that usually when another draconian gun law passes, we hurry to the stores to buy that which we won't be able to buy, so why not turn the tables?

My little Czech beauty will always remind me of the first day in over 200 years we had our God given freedoms recognized and affirmed by the US government.

Anybody else buy a "Heller Baby"? :D

Well, not quite... but Turner's just called me and let me know my SIG P6 on back order has arrived, so I guess I can still count that as part of Heller Baby... Going to do DROS tonight! Great Timing!

I bought two new Spikes lowers and an old 16 gauge semi auto shotgun that the wife wanted. Not a handgun, but I'm pretty happy with it!

Did a dros yesterday as that's when I expected the decision to come out.

Well, I'm waiting for my P6 to come in, I called turners in San bernardino, and they said nope not yet.

So the P6's are starting to show up, for those that put a deposit on them after they sold out in 1 day?

Still waiting on the Kimber group buy. I'll consider that one my celebratory buy.

Nope but I bought a new Kimber and another new Glock last week.

What Just Happened?

Sorry, but no. Although I will be dragging out a friend shooting on Sunday. Does that count?

I'm fighting the urge to get a 1911, but I'm probably going to lose the fight :mad::)

I almost did. I calculated all the fees, taxes/etc right there in turners faster than the employee could. ended up having to pass, i need other things much more and it wouldn't fit in my limited budget. :(

Picked up a new toy two days ago... I can claim Heller anticipation.

The Danish one? Ah yes, that very pistol was used to help tempt me to purchase the CZ......

I've been thinking about ordering a KelTec PF-9. DD's ranch has 'em for $249. A couple more beers and I just might pick one up.

Can't celebrate with a purchase because I celebrated with a pick-up;)



Stupid 30 day rule, but at least my new XD shot great this afternoon!

Purely coincidence, but so did I. A PCR.

Started the DROS on my 229 DAK .40 today. I ordered it a week ago, but the timing was right! A small victory is better than no victory.

06-26-2008, 7:16 PM
No to handguns...already got more than I have fingers and toes....BUT I did put my OLL together yesterday and I get to pickup my M1A next week.:43:

Does a purchase of an XD-45 still count as a "Heller" baby.

Anybody think the case name "Heller" seems a little fitting...

DROS'd a gun today, but I bought it last thurs and it had to be mailed.

rocknut
06-26-2008, 8:19 PM
I'm glad to see that I wasn't the only one to think to myself "Heller was upheld so I think I'll go buy a new gun to celebrate". I haven't decided which one yet. I really want a HK USC but I keep thinking about a 1911 also. Hmmm or maybe another OLL build.

I could have picked up my uberti 1858 new-army cartridge conversion but I figure I'll wait until saturday when my fiancee can pick her new vaquero up... makes sense to carpool and take only one trip to the shop rather than two.

To celebrate I went to the range. First time I have fired my CZ52. What a fun to shoot weapon.

I get to pick up my Browning Buckmark tomorrow and I am also taking my girlfriend to the range tomorrow night. My boss told me the ruling of the case today. He didn't know the specifics or anything so I had to fill him in. Then a co worker came in and we all started talking about guns. It was pretty cool. :)

Unfortunately, this quarter's gun budget was dedicated to more projectiles and powder to keep me shooting the guns I have. But I did have the exact same thought.

Congrats on that 75B. It's one of those magical guns that makes you a better shooter.

Instead of buying a gun in celebration of Heller, a more fitting "patriotic duty" would be to donate that money to the NRA, GOA, Calguns Foundation or what ever other gun-right organization you find agreeable to help fund follow up lawsuits. An upswell in donations, in the next week or so would be an excellent way to give postive reinforcement.

I found a Colt Trooper in nickel, I will name this one Heller.

Found it at AAA Sporting goods in Vallejo, these guys are as good as it gets!

I bought my GSG-5 yesterday, close enough for me.

On the other hand, my wife's been talking about babies again... :eek:
I wonder if Heller would be a good name?

Didnt buy any today. but I did go to the range and unloaded about 180rds of 9mm in celebration. Does that count?

I hope so, cause I did about the same (but with .45ACP).

Bought a Doublestar AR lower yesterday. I'd already spent most of my gun budget this month, so the $ gods said no handgun for you, buddy. But squeezing in a lower....that was doable.

I'll probably get the lower engraved with something Heller-related before doing my build.

I ordered an XD-45 with thumb safety but they are not in the CA list yet.

Your patriotic duty might include donating to the Calguns Foundation so that they can press the attack on gun ban legislation while Heller is still fresh.

And I celebrated by joining the "DROSed a Sig P6" team yesterday!

I gave Bob a visit and DROS'd an OLL. Wass passing by and thought it a good day to put another stick in the eye of the anti's.

I was so excited I went to the local range and burned through a brick of 22lr! I also shot my new Phoenix HP22 for the first time. (Wow, worked good!)
Then I went to a Hellerbration party and met some calgunners for first time! A day to remember! : ))

Hmmm.... bought a Smith Airweight 442, G26 and KelTec P3AT all within the last month or so.

The 442 I bought while my wife was out of town, and the G26 was a spur of the moment thing. I saw it sitting in the gun store and it followed me home a few minutes later. I didn't tell my wife... she noticed it that night when she walked in on me loading it up with a 33 round mag. :(


I'm sooooo in the doghouse for those.... Heller was great but my couch isn't that comfortable.
