OF COURSE THEY WILL! I just broke down and paid too much for some. That'll do it every time.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.

Prices are starting to come down in VB. The Armory, for example, is selling PMC .223 for $399, and 5.56 for $499. 9mm cases are down $399-$499, depending on bullet weight (115 & 124 gr, respectively)

And then there's the MIL/LE-only SS198LF 5.7x28 for $30/box...goes well with the Five-SeveN for $999.99...
