April 15 is BAG Day!
Still not a peep from Aaron, godfather of BAG Day, so I'll try to carry on. If you've bought or will buy a firearm with your income tax refund, drop me a comment describing the goodies or leave a link to your blog or website, and I'll include it in this BAG Day Roundup. Heck, if you're sending $$$ to Uncle Sam and still buy a gun, I'll include you with salutations!
Don't know if I'll participate myself, since last year's BAG Day purchase is taking up a lot of time and money. I do have something on my wish list now, but I've got to liquidate some back-of-the-safe hardware to realize the purchase.
