$100?

Just out of idle curiosity...if you had $100 in your hand what would you purchase for your handgun? (I.e. Ammo, reloading supplies, accessories, magazines)
I guess I'd buy more reloading supplies or mags.

1 Franklin won't get much in accessories today, but will get 2 good bottles of Bourbon to wait out this craziness .

Right before the madness, I bought a lone wolf conversion barrel to convert my Glock 35 to 9mm.

I would buy a few 9mm magazines if I could find them for a reasonable price. I’m planning on waiting a while for that to happen.

Unfortunately $100 won't go very far these days.

Site and grips

I'd get an adjustable target sight and snazzy wood grips for my Beretta fs92. Hmmmm might just really do that.

No ammo or magazines because they are currently over priced. Besides I believe I have well over a case of Federal large pistol primers and stuff. I’m not a hoarder, still got stuff simply because gun stores and ranges have been dropping like bees. I even noticed dead bees in Arizona. No grips for my Colt 1911 because I got grips new with Colt emblem from one of the later Ventura shows. First vendor wanted $60 while another wanted $40 OTD. Really not needed but the price was right.

I would spend the $100 toward another barrel for my Glock 19C or wood grips for the Walther P5 and/or S&W 745. Here again not really needed but if the price is right.

$100?

My first thought would be to buy some primers and powder, but it's hard to come by right now and I haven't the time to get my reloader going.

I've been thinking about 2 new holsters, one for my new single six and one for another revolver that doesn't have one, but I can't get myself to spring for them because they are not guns I foresee myself carrying. If I had an extra C-note, I might just order one to help fill in the accessory collection.

I would look for a decent set of sights for my 9mm. Unfortunately tritium sights cost more than a C note for what I have. It would get a lot of it though.

$50 donation to the NRA
$50 donation to the CSSA

I have done exactly this a couple times recently. Magazines and ammo are overpriced right now, so I'm mainly just sitting on my stash.

I guess I'd buy more reloading supplies or mags.
A hundred bucks?

Holster, or better holster, and/or magazine carrier, for one or more of my handguns.

Extra magazines for anything I have less than 8 for.

Lee .380 die set plus factory crimp die, so I can load .380 efficiently.

Reloading consumables -- bullets, primers, powder.

That's all that's on my the handgun buy list right now.

Ammo or bullets near a reasonable price, maybe another mag for my Kahr at reasonable price, if I could find any of these.
