I went to the gun show
yesterday with D and another friend who lives in my apartment building. I picked up a totally-not-a-weapon-really-there's-
and 600 rounds of ammunition (which sounds like a lot, but isn't) for my 10/22 LR...which, naturally, is in Denver. The rounds I got are copper coated...to suit the demands of a range by my parents' house. Oh, yeah, and I have no way of getting the gun here or the rounds there.
THE ONLY SOLUTION IS TO BUY ANOTHER GUN.
If I ever have money again, that is.
Anyway, I was thinking that my current 10/22 is boring
. I actually don't like brown/wooden guns, preferring the much more evil black. At the gun show yesterday, I saw stocks with awesome colors
, and I decided I wanted.
But (a) they are about 1.5 times the price of the gun itself, (b) the gun remains in Denver and I remain here (or Seoul, or Beijing), and (c) most of the pretty stocks seem to be discontinued.
So anyway, I was thinking I could find a large pile of cash somewhere, and then I could build my own 10/22 from scratch. It would be awesome, in that it would probably end up looking like this
, because guess what there are also colored barrels out there, too! Actually, the point of a Ruger 10/22 is that you take it apart and build another one
. I could, conceivably, go home, take the action out of my gun, and bring it back here.
It's expensive. I'd need a stock
, and tools. And I, uh, kinda need to buy a scope for the one I have here before it's usable...And probably a sling...And then there's ammo...And...and...and...
I think that guns are just a conspiracy to keep people from saving money.
