    I thought I would give Black Friday a try for the first time in my life.
    I wanted to check out Walmart and Dick's for some ammo. Iwasn't about to get crazy about it so I left my house at 8:15 am figuring that if I got there and the parking lots were too full all I would be out is a couple gallons of gas.
    I drove about four miles to the Walmart in the mall outside of Kittanning, Pa.
    It was fairly busy but I saw a man go in the door by the garden center and that
    corner of the lot was nearly empty. So I parked and went in there and right around thecorner to sporting goods. There was a long line of people waiting to buy their hunting license. Nothing like waiting to the last minute since Monday
    is opening day of deer season. I walked up to the rack of shotgun shells and loaded my cart with ten four packs of Federals and ten of Winchesters. I checked at the garden center and was back at my car in a total of less than ten minutes. I then drove to Dick's in Pittsburgh Mills and thought I'd check and see if they had any 2 3/4 dram Gun Clubs because all Walmart had were 3 drams.
    Went straight back to the ammo and took six cases which was all they had in 2 3/4 dram. Total time in Dick's about 15 minutes. Might have to try this every year.

    My wife went to WM this morning about 9 and said it was nearly deserted. It seems that all the Black Friday BS is over long before that.

    Did good at Menards this am.

    Bought a Canon 23 gun safe for $399.00. My other safe was full, so it was either sell a few guns or buy more safe space. For $399.00 I couldn't go wrong.

    In and out with a full cart in less than half hour.

    I went to the Club, shot Trap and Pistol. Lunch was supplied by friends at the Club. Left it better than I found it, left with more brass than I brought.

    Smooth sailing.
