The other day I was browsing through Gander Mountain (because I love paying egregiously inflated prices for guns and ammo) just kind of chilling and perusing their rifle racks, when I saw something that made me almost defenestrate my plan for saving my gun money for the Para LTC in case I love it. Sitting on the rack at Gander Mountain was nothing other than a Puma rifle in .45 Colt, a Winchester ’92 clone with a 16 inch barrel, saddle ring, and large loop cocking lever.
Oh my goodness. So pretty. Do want. Being the guy that I am, I of course picked it up and shouldered it in the store – that 16 inch barrel snapped the sights right up to my line of sight like it was meant for my shoulder.
Needless to say, that did not make my decision to not purchase the rifle any easier. Discipline is a good virtue, and I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy any more guns until after Blackwater – just in case I love the Para LTC and decide to buy that. But if I don’t…helloooo Puma.
