Default Freedom Week Buyer's Remorse

So after looking at boxes of newly acquired ammo feeding devices, started to asked myself "holy, mother of *** what did I just do!"

Like many I had gone into the Freedom Week with the mentality of the "Buffet line" - take everything and then plus some. Now looking at boxes upon boxes of packages, I got that over ate bloated feeling

Well, like a buffet, it will just take time to digest. So did anyone else felt they kind of gone over board?

Nope. You'll be glad to have gotten what you did during Freedom Week a few years down the line.

This is what I'm thinking, but not what Im hoping. With the 9th issuing a stay on its own order for illegals with Trump the other day, I'm starting to get hopeful.

He also has the 9th right in his crosshairs, so believe they are going to try and flip the court.

My only regret is not buying certain magazines before they got sold out.

Funny thing is, I didn't "need" anymore clipazines. I already had more than I will ever need. But the draw and excitement was to strong.

It was payday. It was my birthday. And it was something we had not been able to do (have them delivered to home address) in almost 20 years. The perfect storm.

All I know is I think I am now, permanently, on Brownell's and Beretta's Christmas card list.

Well I finally got all the boxes unloaded into the guest room and the boxes broken down.

Code enforcement was being a pain.

Even though I bought magazines for guns I don't yet own, I regret not buying more and missing some from my wishlist. (Should've bought some 22lr MP5 mags, for example.)

My only regret is lack of millions in disposable cash.
I ate my way across America from east to west then back to the east coast again.

I regret not putting in a bigger order at brownells. I should have just ordered the backordered stuff I wanted. Instead, I placed only a small order with backordered items thinking there was no hope of them being delivered. I would have ordered a lot more.

For the most part though I got mostly everything I wanted. I regret buying those promag cz75 ghetto sticks. They may turn out to work well, but so far just trying to seat them and have the slide hold open on empty is hit or miss.

I have no regrets for the magazines I bought. I'm happy that many who have not been able to buy them for almost 20 years was able to do so.

The winning part is watching the AG and gun control groups sh*t their collective pants over it. Now that is winning.

Yeah my only remorse was to focus primarily on guns I already have, and not thought too much about guns I definitely would want. By the time I came around on Fri, it was already too late as pickings were slim.

Honestly, now I'm looking at getting other firearms to fit my new magazines

But unfortunately this state as a whole has pretty effectively priced me out of shooting with regularity. Maybe I'll use my glock mags as stir stick in the meantime

yes I also went overboard, but also wish I had grabbed a few things more that I overlooked.

Part of going overboard was hedging my bets among many suppliers, thinking some would not come through. But they all came through

I regret not thinking ahead and buying more, especially for guns that I do not own but would really like to have.

I only recently got into guns (5 years ago). With the 10 round limit, it was easy to make the choice between having 10 rounds of 45 or 10 rounds of 9mm. I went with 10 rounds of 45 and choose Glock 21.

Now with the option to go with a standard capacity magazine, I'd rather go with the 9mm. However, I'm not buying another handgun until the roster's gone.

My regret is everyone feeling the need to ask or say what and how much the bought or spent. But that is just me. I don't think it is wise to elude to any of that, no matter how clever you think the innuendo is.

It's good, It's all good, I moved to Cali in 1997 and like most, have seen the rockslide of crumbling rights - I sincerely hope this was a shot in the arm to folks. When Gavin and Xavier release their next slew of oppression, people gotta remember it ain't over boys, it's never going to be over.

I mean my life wasn't incomplete without them but I knew full well going in that 1) I might have to destroy them 2) It would just be funny to have at the range. I actually practice with random rounds up to 5 or 6 in my guns and practice mag changes more than shoot so yeah, they are just novelty to me. May have spent more than I should but oh well.

But it would have been nice if there were more surplus funds to buy several CASES of magazines, just to send HUNDREDS of empty packaging containers to Gavin, Xavier, and Kamala-hoe’s offices.

I do have a regret, but not the same as others posted here.
I sent a few packages to Cali, sold here and other places. Somehow I accidentally deleted all the PMs. Now I will never know who I helped... So sad.

I mean If anyone from Cali where to call me to ask, I could not even answer the question.
