I have a survival knife, based on the (in)famous LILE "rambo" combat knife. I like it, oil finished.

It's no firearm, I know, but it's the only thing that I own that I could call a weapon ;)

ChrisF202
27 Mar 05,, 03:08
NVM, the link works now.

I see that the magazine capacity is only 5 rounds, yet ive seen 30 or 20 round clips on the market. Could I just buy the 5 round version and shove a 30 round clip into it? Or do I need to "modify" it to accept the larger capaicty clips?

27 Mar 05,, 03:11
No, it'll take hi-capacity magazines, including drums if you want to shell out the money for them and take the time loading them.

Thanks for your quick response. Overall, id say the stats indicate a pretty good weapon.

They're really fun guns, my friend has one. You can put as much crap on that thing as you can afford, too. Just make sure you find a cheap ammo source like I did. I use Wolf for all my plinking weapons, it's cheap but still works very well.

My dad was a DA and he managed to get ahold of a murder weapon. He tried the case, checked the weapon out of evidence, and the evidence people simply forgot to ask for it back. It was a S&W .38 of some kind.

Wow, you must like the Brits and their guns lol. The Martini is probably one of the most powerful rifles ever made (could take out 2 or 3 Zulus and still have stopping power), sadly it overheats to quickly and jams (aka Isandlawana).

Do you like the .40 Glock? My local agency was one of the 1st major US law enforcement agencies to adopt the automatic handgun in the and since then they have had nothing but complaints about the 9mm version, like it cant penetrate doors, etc. You arent issued a AR-15?

leib10
27 Mar 05,, 16:30
Depending on the situation, low-level penetration can be a good thing, especially in a hostage-rescue situation. You don't want the bullets to go flying all over the place in cramped areas, possibly hitting hostages or team members.

Yes, I have been revealed as the closet brit weapons anglophile that i am. Its ironic that British subjects can't own them...

My academy class was the first to get the .40 Glock. It took an officer getting shot and killed to get them. Prior to that we were issued .38 revolvers, but one could buy one of four approved 9mm semiautos with their own money if they liked. I really like glocks in general and the .40 is fine. If I had my druthers I would be allowed to carry a 1911-type .45 but that will never happen here.

We're trying hard to get ARs approved now, but we won't see them anytime soon. The original proposal was for Department-issued guns, which i think is a mistake. We've got too many officers who can't keep an 870 clean ( and a few who couldn't hit the ground if they dropped their weapon). An 870 will go "bang" even after being neglected, an AR won't. The way to go in my opinion is to let those of us who own one or are willing to buy one be trained on them. That would simplify training greatly. They already have policies in place for SWAT and K9 AR's.
We have one Deputy Chief pushing for them, the others don't seem to like the idea. Coincidentally, she is the only one of them with any significant street time...

Yeah, all officers here have dept issued ARs and shotguns.

All chiefs (we have about 25 in PD and 8 or so in SO) are appointed by the 5 star guys (commissioner or sheriff), one went from lieutenant to deputy chief (skipping 4 ranks) and then we have 4 chief ranks, they invented one just so the Sheriff could wear 5 stars rather then 4, its insane let me tell ya. The corruption and political crap is what will keep me from applying to the Sheriff's Office or County Police when im 21.

actually the only gun i own (meaning its mine) is a Feinwerkbau 300 .177cal Airrifle with a scope, but i borrowed two nice thingies...
#1 is the SIG-510 (http://world.guns.ru/assault/as45-e.htm) (also referred to as Stgw 57), the first Swiss assault rifle (i borrowed it from my uncle)
#2 is the SIG-550 (http://world.guns.ru/assault/as25-e.htm) (referred to as Stgw 90), the (you guessed it) second Swiss assault rifle which made it into serial production. This one is lent to me from the state :)

As of now, I own no guns. My father has several and I use them whenever I can. I have fired a 9mm sig, and a .40 sig. I enjoy learning about weapons, military ones in particular.

Once I finish my education, I hope to own a pistol. Hopefully it will be a glock or sig in .40.

I am interested in a law enforcemnet, so who knows...

I don't own any guns! Nope. Not me! Nosirree, guns are bad. BAD, Evil, evil guns! Don't bother looking in my house for guns! You won't find any! NOPE. If you want a gun you'll just have to look somewhere else, 'cause I'm afraid of 'em!
I'd never use a gun for anything. Owning a gun makes you into a wicked person, and I'm to nice to own a gun! NO GUNS FOR ME!

So you're saying that almost everybody here is EVIL AND WICKED?
I like to vaporize squirrels, groundhogs, rabbits, muskrats (ESPECIALLY GEESE; Oh, those nasty things...), but not humans.
So am I still EVIL and WICKED for eliminating heavily-overpopulated, annoying, and potentially dangerous (yes, I HAVE been chased by a roundhog once, seriously!) animals?

Sniperdude, if your post is a serious one, you should know that Drez is the poster child for "armed and extremely dangerous"....and his daughter is even worse (not to mention a total hottie :redface: )

And if your post was intended in a light-hearted manner: LMAO :biggrin: :biggrin:

Sweeeeeet. Compared to everyone in my family, school, etc, I'm a TOTAL gun nut. When I'm bored, most of the time I scan through gun sites; that's how I got here.
I am particularly interested in the working mechanisms of guns ( If you haven't already checked my post on gun designs, those are MINE, my own special designs; I need critiquing), seeing how they work, you know, math and physics fun stuff. On my graphing calculator, I have several ballistics (kinda simple ones) programs, so can calculate plenty of things. I love trigonometry.
If you want to ask more questions about me, go ahead and ask; I'm not shy.

A few new changes for this year, slightly different stock, and new sites. Good gun. I have an older Mini-30 using the 7.62X39, and many aftermarket 30 round mags available at reasonable cost. Good gun for general purpose/hunting to about 150-200 yards. Not real accurate for longer distances than that, but semi-auto in nice Garand style action. I like it a lot, and it compares well with the Romanian SAR-1 I have as well.

I have this one, a Taurus PT-92...

http://world.guns.ru/handguns/taurus_pt92.jpg

Well a BB version anyway.

Real guns are illegal in the UK, but i hope to own an AK-47 one day....just put in the boot of your beamer....sorted... :tongue:

We have an AK back in Pakistan, as well as a regular revolver, and several rifle....i don't know which ones....

I have an uncle who is a cop, he has an interesting collection...including MP-5 and glocks...

sniperdude411
28 Apr 05,, 18:14
The bb gun... is that an actual bb gun, or an airsoft?
If you don't know, a bb gun uses .177 cal. ammo, an airsoft gun uses plastic (or metallic) 6mm bbs.

platinum786
28 Apr 05,, 21:34
airsoft

sniperdude411
29 Apr 05,, 02:05
Quite fun, ain't it? I've got a DPMS M4 (a.k.a A-15) airsoft gun, but I installed a SECOND spring in it. It now shoots 450 fps w/ .25g bb, and will accurately travel 100 yards and still hurt like heck. I want to get a new piston and barrel, but I'm not rich.

leib10
29 Apr 05,, 14:57
This is one of my more interesting weapons: a Ruger 10/22 with an MG42 dress up kit. It's still fully functional and quite accurate.

Airsoft guns won't do that (or really cheap ones won't), they won't penetrate skin. Mine, on the other hand, will penetrate skin and glass.

Mine never penetrated or cracked glass. And I had a DPMS M4 just like yours, sniperdude. I like the other DPMS M4 I have better. ;)

platinum786
01 May 05,, 08:53
really?

That means mine must be quite good then.

I have not tried glass, but it does dent metal....and wooden doors...

sniperdude411
01 May 05,, 14:34
Mine never penetrated or cracked glass. And I had a DPMS M4 just like yours, sniperdude. I like the other DPMS M4 I have better. ;)

I put a second spring in it, and it will penetrate skin at up to 50 yds. Its effective range is about 100-130 yds. Right now it shoots about 450 fps with .25 gram bbs; I can't even see .2 or .12 in flight though. For glass that's less than 1/4 inch thick, it will break it. And it'll lodge the bbs inside drywall enough so that I can't get them out with my fingers.
Not to mention the charging handle is almost impossible to pull back.

For further upgrades, I'm thinkin of geting a better piston and barrel; or I could just get a nice AEG.

leib10
01 May 05,, 17:07
I've often thought about getting an AEG; however, I might as well get a real gun because of how expensive they can be.

sniperdude411
01 May 05,, 18:52
Yes, but AEGs are made to shoot people without injuring them.
Real guns, on the other hand, are made to put holes in things, not dent them.

2DREZQ
02 May 05,, 00:50
Oh, BTW Sniperdude, in your sig; don't you mean 3,000 fps? (3000 mph would be 4400 fps-that's a really fast bullet!)

sniperdude411
02 May 05,, 03:42
well, the Steyr IWS 2000 does more than that: 4750 fps at 1000 meters; of course it's an anti-material rfle, but oh well.

ak-dave
04 May 05,, 11:35
Most of what I own is at my AK-Dave (https://home.comcast.net/~ak-dave/) site. :eek:

Leibstandarte10 – you are a man of my heart. BTW I’m Burgess class of 74. :cool:

ChrisF202 – Mini-14 is OK, I prefer the Mini-30. 14 can be a bugger about magazines and is real picky about over all bullet lengths. Beware reloading lengths. :frown:

2DREZQ is right; guns are bad, evil and wicked things. That is why you have to take control of them and lock them away in your big dark gun safe. Let them out for short times, put them to work and see if they behave well. But always, always keep them safe and secure. That keeps them and you from harm. Remember to clean and feed them too. :biggrin:

And there are us sick twisted individuals that find we are giggling like schoolgirls watching the Dog Be Gone videos. Also check out Seekers of the Red Mist. :redface:

The only air gun I have is a .177 air rifle I got in East Berlin (DDR days) on a visit to West Berlin. Famous quote of the trip, “Leave it to Dave to find a gun store in a Communist country!” :rolleyes:

I do own some that are not related to those evil assault rifles; Moss 500, Win 1200, BDL 700L and a couple .22s. Do regret not getting a FAMAS and USAS-12 went we could. :mad:

leibstandarte10,

I was back in 84 for the 10 year and it was different then. Never heard anything on the 20th and couldn't get away for the 30th. I still would like to get back for a visit one day. Maybe by my 40th?

sniperdude411,

Years and years of being single and a nice job, plus I didn't marry until mid thirties. Nothing I have ever bought has cost over $800. Now if I ever have to replace one of the pre-925(d) [the first assualt weaon ban in 89] weapons I'll cry.

sniperdude411
13 May 05,, 00:16
I would never sell a baby like that... Unless I could buy a new gun and dress-up kit for less. I should have got the Ruger instead; My remington .22 is really annoying; the safety is too tight, so I have to click the safety on and off every shot I take.

A VP70 and VP70M when equiped with their buttstock/holster are capable of 3 round burst fire at 2200rpm. The Z model can't be equiped with the buttstock.

It's my favorite completely useless gun with the world's worst trigger I own. Everything else actually has a purpose.

I don't know how to add those pictures into the text block. So I'll just tell you about some of them.

I still own a DWM Luger Artillery with 32 shot snail drum magazine AND the loading tool for the magazine. I have the holster with cleaning rod and field stripping tool. I do not have the leather for the snail drum nor do I have the shoulder stock (which is now legal to own along with the gun).

My main target piece is a Colt .45 National Match with Eliason sights. Very nice low-profile sites and I carry with me in the desert as an anti-sidewinder tool.

For quick home defense I have a Stainless Steel Ruger double action Bi-Centennial revolver in .357 Magnum.

My wife uses a Winchester Model 97 12 gauge Riot gun. Gives her a bit of an edge as she can't shoot as well as either her sister or I can.

My biggie that I carry when I visit the land I own in Oregon is a Ruger Single Action Blackhawk with adjustable sights in .41 Magnum. That'll take care of any Black Bear that wants to argue who's name is on the deed. Don't know if it will stop a Big Foot though. Haven't seen one -- yet though I think one was watching me one day. Well, SOMETHING was watching me and I was thankful that the Ruger filled my hand very well.

In the cab of my truck, on that day, was my backup. An M-1 Garand made in April of 1941 with the milled trigger guard, first generation adjustable sights etc. by Springfield Armory. I have one more Garand that was made around the Korean War era with the stamped trigger guard and later issued "Battle Sights".

For big bore target shooting and hunting I used (and still have) an 03-A3 Springfield still in military built in 1943 by Remington.

For medium game I used a pre-64 model 94 Winchester in .30-30.

I still have my grandfather's first rifle which is a Stevens "Crack-Shot" .22 rolling block with SIDE LEVER instead of the more common trigger guard lever.

I also have the .22 Remington pump rifle my grandfather gave to my grandmother with their wedding date inscribed on the receiver.

There's a couple of others not really worth mentioning like the Iver Johnson .32 closed hammer my grandmother carried in her purse. She switched to that as she got into her 70's because recoil of .38s was a little hard on her arthritus. She always liked the .32 as she once used one to convince a home burglar that Norwalk, Wisconsin no longer appreciated his presence. She only fired a shotgun once. It was a 12 gauge double barrel and was tricked by some "friends" into pulling both triggers at once. After she crawled out of the mud puddle the recoil knocked her into, she grabbed that gun by the barrels and took off after her "friends" swinging it like a baseball bat.

Where do you own land in Oregon?

Where do you own land in Oregon?
About 45 miles northeast of Klammath Falls. Not exactly thick forest bigfoot country though I've heard a report from fairly trustworthy people.

It's only 2 parcels of 20 acres and 10 acres separated about 3/4 mile apart. I surveyed it all myself using a rifle scope as a transit and a camera tripod. Should be pretty accurate as my sightings went directly across official section markers. That 20 acre parcel made for a perfect target range for me when I tested out the ballistic qualities of 3/4-inch thick Resin impregnated Kevlar Armor (it sucks).

It's up on a tableland and the only person that lived there in a run-down cabin moved out years ago. My nearest neighbor is 8 miles away. A couple miles South is Wild Billy Lake that must be good duck hunting as I've heard the gunfire while camped out on my land and watched ducks fly NORTH instead of SOUTH for that time of year.

Good deer and antelope country too. I find their tracks all the time. Not too many bear but one day I heard something rustling in the brush only a few yards from my camping trailer. With my M-1 Garand (with fixed bayonet) ----naw, only kidding. But I did unholster my .41 Magnum as I checked out the noise. Before I could see it, it went;

MOOOOO.

Damn cow that got lost from one of the ranches down below.

I didn't feel like steak that night so I holstered my Ruger and went back to heating up a can of spaghetti and meat balls.

It was two days later when I definitely felt something watching me in the woods just south of my 10 acre parcel. And I was thinking about that bigfoot report related by a couple of the local real estate brokers. I was sort of a business partner with them so I believe what they told me. I was looking for pine tree seedlings to transplant along with the Junipers my wife and I planted several years before and ----.

Well, we're off subject now. Some other time.

My mom and stepfather own some land near the Sprague river. The wells there are deep. lack of water= lack of people. I don't know about the duck hunting down there, but i do know the people here love to shoot. A lot of land is being closed due to the idiots who drag up large appliances and cars to use as targets, then leave all the trash there. Cows are everywhere as ranchers put their cows on their own land, public land, and everyone elses land as they see fit. In that area the ranchers play the odds of "what are the chances of an out of state owner of a little used parcel actually being there when the cows stroll by." The cows can wreak havoc on a water source, but they will fertalize the land for free so watch yer step.

The bears tend to be farther west, but you might spot a cougar if you are lucky. Deer are plentiful.

My land is north of the Sprague River and walking distance west of the Sycan River. When I first camped out up there, I carried a .45 ACP with wadcutters for rattlesnakes. Then the locals (Klammath Indians) told me there were no rattlesnakes on that side of the river which made Oregon Pines (a few miles west of me) so saleable. But my wife found where a bear was trying to dig out a woodchuck hole and she asked if my .45 would stop a bear. Naturally I answered that the wadcutters (target loads) would only make him mad. Three months later at a gun show she bought me my .41 Magnum.

That is a neat trick. I am going to tell my wife there really are bears in Oregon in the hopes she will get me something like a .41 mag as well. So far, I have been carrying a rifle each and every time I have encountered bears here.

She doesn't think there are bears in Oregon? Good grief. There are bears all over the place. For example, here in sunny southern California are black bears that can get to be pretty big. Just a 2 hour drive east from Long Beach I can be in Forest Falls which (though at 6,000 foot elevation) is at the FOOT of the San Bernardino Mountains. Bears up there just love to turn your trash cans inside out.

In the San Bernardino Mountains at the most popular SOUTHERN California ski resorts of Big Bear and Arrowhead bears are a constant problem especially in the winter time. No, they do NOT sleep ALL winter. Their hibernation cycle includes coming out for a midnight snack once in a while. The fall is the worst when they REALLY get hungry and try to build up insulative body fat for the winter.

I have seen bear sign ALL OVER Western Oregon from Beatty to the Pacific Ocean.

Then I recall one time while deer hunting west of Mono Lake in California being stalked by a Mountain Lion. The next year I went up and returned the stalking game with an M1 Carbine and 30 round bannana clip. Alas, the poor critter was caught by a rockslide a few months before.

Oh wait, there was a report of a Mountain Lion attack in Riverside County here in SOUTHERN California a few weeks ago.

Please. Your wife may be the loviest woman in the world and could put Eva Longoria to shame, can write her own cookbook, speak four languages and balance the checkbook with her eyes closed. But put your foot down and tell her one way or another the budget is going to have to include a .41 or .44 magnum before your next trip to Oregon.

A rifle can do the trick but can be a bit cumbersome. A magnum handgun is IDEAL if you have other work to do and must leave both hands free such as setting fence posts. In my case it was surveying and building a small dam in the arroyo that runs through my 10 acre parcel to provide a watering hole for animals and resovoir for some trees my wife and I planted.

Hmmm. If your wife looks like Eva Longoria, why would you --- never mind. Just a thought.

My wife knows that there are bears here. (we live here) The problem is justifying another firearm purchase to add to my arsenal. South western Oregon(Cascades to the Pacific) is filled with bears, though I have not heard very many bear reports in south cental Oregon. I even had one in the back porch of my house, eating dog food, when I lived near Silver Falls State park.
Every once in awhile someone goes into the SW Oregon woods and does not return. The locals usually say "The bears got him". It is possible, but more probable that he stumbled upon a weed farm where the caretaker defends his crop with enthusiasm and extreme prejudice. When the feds go in for a bust they are armed to the teath and the place looks like a scene from a war movie.

Most of my bear encounters ended with the animal scampering off in the other direction. I have been fortunate to not have come between a cub and its mother or an otherwise aggressive bear. I lived in close proximity with a black bear for a few months in Idaho and saw him nearly everyday, but that is another story.

Cougars are another matter. Few can believe the speed, stealth, and striking distance those cats possess. IMO they fear humans far less than bears and are more predatorial on humans. Fortunately, they are easier to kill than bears as long as you are a quick shot. There is a reason I like semi autos for hunting in deep timber.

Another reason why I like to carry an M1-Garand as well as my .41 magnum Ruger.

Some people say Cougars (aka Panthers, Painters, Mountain Lions) will not attack humans.

NOT TRUE.

My great grandfather was attacked once. The family was living in the Kickapoo River Valley of Wisconsin for a couple of years until an eye specialist from Vienna would be making an American tour with a new treatment for cataracts. My great grandfather (Henry Weiler) was almost totally blind and dispondent as his eyes were so useful in Germany when he was one of the Kaiser's tailors.

While walking in the woods on a path picked out for him without low branches his cane kicked something on the path. As he bent over to pick it up he heard the branches above him rustle and felt an animal jumping over him and then running off into the woods.

He reported this and the local Kickapoos (who sort of adopted my grandmother and her three sisters and taught them some of their ways of the woods) went out to investigate. Sure enough they found the signs that a Panther (as they called them in Wisconsin) was waiting for an easy prey on a tree branch. But Henry bent over just at the time the cat sprung toward him. By missing Henry the cat did not land precisely on all fours on the other side of the path and caused him to take of running instead.

Cougar attacks are not so rare anymore. The "cougar is more afraid of you than you are of him" B.S. is still being pushed by the PETA types. I have met cougars in the wild and the only fear they had of me was they were not going to get enough meals out of me if they won the fight. Cougars are reclusive and one can be in the woods for years without seeing one. If you do see a cougar, he most likely had been watching you for some time and was sizing you up as by their nature are difficult to surprise. After the no dogs for cougar and bear hunting law in Oregon, the numbers have risen to the point where cougars are becoming a problem. I am not big on hunting with dogs as my belief is, "If you are going dangerous game hunting, do so one on one." Otherwise the dogs do all the hunting and all you do is shoot a tired and treed animal. Really, where is the sport in that? You can call it bounty hunting, shooting, or any other name, but that is not true hunting in my book.

Agreed full heartedly. The true hunt is outsmarting or outmanuevering the animal.

Sort of like patrol duty. But at least the cougar, bear, deer or moose can't shoot back.

We actually have had problems with wolves in New York City recently, one swam across the Hudson from Rockland County and ended up in Central Park. The NYPD's Emergency Services Unit was chasing it for 3 days before they caught it. The wolf died in capitivity a few days later.

I also know that we have problems with bears upstate in the Catskills and up north more. A few years ago a bear mauled a 4 month old baby at a Jewish group's picnic in the Catskills and the ski resort I go to has bear warning signs with the Sheriff's Office and State Conservation Police phone #s.

I read about that Wolf problem. At first I thought they were going to do a sequel to the movie "Wolfen" where real wolves hide out in slums and abandoned buildings. Then learned it was real.

Here in southern California, we now have an Alligator problem. There is a "lake" in the San Pedro/Wilmington area where some guy dumped his "pet" Alligator after it got too big for him. California isn't always sunny and can get quite chilly at times so captors have not seen the creature for several weeks and it is either hibernating somewhere or died of the cold.

First, every Serb who served in Bosnia was under command of General Mladic. So according to you, every Bosnian Serb and every Serb from Serbia who served there is a war crimal.

Second, there were six Serbs on this forum. I'm the only one who posts from Serbia. Excluding me and girl who haven't seen this country in her life all other left because of some reason. You think they escaped because they are war criminals? Or maybe they are on a holidays? Wake up! They are refugees or they left because they were barely surviving in this misery!

Third. What do you know about genocide in Balkan wars? Let me tell you something - there's only about 50.000 pages less about Srebrenica than about the Auschwitz! No doubt that Mladic killed those men... But people don't give a sh!t what happened to Serbian civilians in neighboring villages like Bratunac for example! We are talking about the 3-5 thousands! Naser Oric, only muslim commander - is waiting for his sentence for 6 (six) killed Serbs now. Where is the charge for genocide? There is no good enough punishemnt for that islamic swine.

Also, we are the only ones who admitted that war crimes. I'm strating to think that we are fools because of that. Croats deny thier war crimes, Bosnian Muslims deny their war crimes, Albanians deny their war crimes - first got ethnicaly clean state and joining the EU, second got state, third are getting their ethnically clean state. What do we have? Nothing.

But no, it'a a lot easier to generalize and call people war criminals. I'm done with this board, it's pointless.

Those are hunting guns. SPAS for pheasants, AR for white tails, Beretta for crooks, and the revolver for display.

Really? You didn't like the SPAS? What didn't you like about it? It looks like a hella cool shotgun though.

I have an SKS. It's a shooter. I bought it because the ammo is cheap and everything else cool in Kalifornia is banned. :mad:

It jammed constantly in semi-mode, the folding stock cut my cheek(very sharp edges), it weighed as much as a cadillac, and the spring loaded "pump action" mode was balky and awkward.

Beyond that, it was just great...

I also had a Beretta 1201FP semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun(action/mechanism is identical to a Benelli) for several years.

It was everything the SPAS-12 was not.

If you're ever in the market for a riot-gun, it just don't get any better than that.

Well by cheap do you mean pump, semi, or over-under(of which cheap means $1000 and up)?

Cheap pump that's good, a used Rem 870 is a good un. For a cheap semi a good used Rem 11-87, or even better a nice top grade used Beretta or Browning. Over-unders are goofy expensive, i've never owned one, i can't help ya there, lol.

Well that has a hell of a lot more to do with you than the shotgun bro. Honestly, IMO i suck at Trap&Skeet, so the shotgun doesnt much matter. Likewise, a champ skeet shooter will look great with a 28 gauge O/U(yep, ive seen that done before!)

I went away for the weekend on a stag do a year or so ago. Boys weekend away, driving quad bikes, shooting traps followed by copious drinking. Anyway, having only ever shot a .303 and .22 before I managed to beat the 20 other guys in the trapshooting, including a South African army guy and an ex-Israeli diplomatic protection squad member, perfect score. So thought I might take it up as a hobby and I wouldn't embarrass myself too much. Her indoors will 'allow' me to do it if I don't keep the gun at home :rolleyes:

I cant argue with that, however i do believe that Remi offer affordable and reliable off the self shooters, as for Hunting Rifles"Offcr-of Engineers" I dont hunt to much but have an Edgar Brothers .222 for the odd ocassion.

2 AR-15 parts guns
Springfeild M-1A

I guess I have another 10 or so .22 rifles and some replica civil war muzzle loaders.

I used to have many more. I sold most. I've traded some for reloading equipment and an old 1968 Cougar that has been nicely restored. I used to take alot of pride in guns but now it seems like I had tons of money just sitting around doing nothing. While many consider them an investment when it comes time to sell its almost always a buyers market and often I was lucky to break even. In retrospect I should have invested more of what I spent on firearms and other things in retirement funds.

Hi there! My first post here, and I thought I'd display some of my firearms for a good start (Pistols first).

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/13car8.jpg
Glock 22 (.40SW). My very first firearm. Didn't like the spongy Safe-Action trigger, the grip ergonomics or the snappy recoil and the fact that it caused my shooting hand some pain after extended range sessions, but I appreciated the 15-round magazines, reasonable accuracy, simplicity of operation/maintainence, durability and great reliability of this weapon. I sold earlier this year, however. (and I miss it quite a bit.)

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/12car0.jpg
Walther P22 (.22LR). My first .22LR pistol. Decent enough trigger, nice grip feel and overall ergonomics, easy to take care of, very light recoil (duh), and came with 3.4" and 5" barrels. However, with either barrel, it's not too accurate, and it's VERY picky about ammo.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/13car7.jpg
Bulgarian Arsenal Makarov (9x18 Makarov) My first DA/SA pistol. Didn't like it at first; It had a long and fairly heavy DA pull, but the single action was very sweet. But, for such a relatively small caliber, it was fairly snappy, and actually caused quite a bit of pain to my shooting hand. So, I swapped out the recoil spring for a stiffer one, and replaced the plastic grip with a Pearce rubber grip, and it was like a new gun. The gun was now painless to shoot. Moreover, I've found it to be extremely accurate and very reliable. Only thing I don't like about it now are the small sights.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/5car6.jpg
From left to right - CZ 85 (Pre-B model from 1987), CZ 75 SP-01, CZ 75 P-01, CZ 2075 RAMI, all chambered in 9mm Parabellum. As you can see, I'm quite fond of the Czech manufacturer's products. My favorite in terms of looks and trigger feel is my CZ 85. I just bought my SP-01 very recently, but in the time I've used it at the range I've found it to be superbly accurate. My P-01 is perhaps my favorite all-around handgun in my collection. IMO it balances accuracy, reliability, size and capacity perfectly. And finally, my RAMI. Despite it's small size, it's very accurate, has little recoil and carrying it concealed for long stretches of time is no problem at all.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/13car6.jpg
Springfield Armory 1911A1 Mil-Spec Stainless (.45 ACP). As my firearms collection was growing, one day it dawned to me that there was no 1911 in it, so I decided to rectify that and ordered the gun you see here. When I went to the range to fire it the first time, I was a bit apprehensive, as I've heard many stories of how the .45 was an extremely hard-kicking an painful round to shoot. To my surprise, I found the gun to actually be relatively mild in terms of recoil, IMO considerably less than my Glock 22 in .40SW. I also found the gun to jam occasionally at first. But with a little break-in time, and switching to high-quality aftermarket mags, it is very reliable now, and very accurate.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/20car0.jpg
Smith & Wesson 686 Plus 6" barrel (.38 Special & .357 Magnum). After getting my 1911, I decided I wanted a revolver to add to my collection, and ordered the gun seen above. I also wanted something a bit different from your standard 6-shooter, so I ordered mine with a 7-shot cylinder (hence the Plus). Firing .38s out of it produces almost no recoil, almost like a .22, and firing .357 Magnum rounds out of it, while loud and producing a lot of flash, are actually not very painful at all and quite fun IMO (and quite expensive compared to .38s :frown: ). It's proved to be exceptionally accurate with the 6" barrel, and the single-action the trigger pull is very light and crisp.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/5car4.jpg
Smith & Wesson Military & Police (.40SW)
I've heard a lot about S&W's newest semi-auto a few months ago, and decided to go my usual gun store and try one out. The grip ergonomics were far and away superior to my Glock, the sights were a considerable improvement, and the trigger, though DAO, was surprisingly smooth and light, and didn't have the mushiness of the Glock's trigger. Suffice it to say, I sold my Glock to a friend at work the next day, and later came home with my new M&P. After the requisite field-stripping and cleaning, I took it to the range and was even more impressed with the gun. I found that I could not only shoot the M&P more accurately than the Glock, but a good deal of the snappy recoil was gone, there was no pain in my shooting hand after long sessions, and I could reaquire targets for follow-up shots much quicker with the M&P than I ever could with the Glock. The only drawback to the gun IMO is the impossible to use the slide release after reloading (in order to chamber a round after a reload, you must tug the slide back). Fortunately, S&W has already produced a larger slide release, and I've ordered one for my M&P.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/5car7.jpg

High Standard H-D Military (.22LR). My first 'antique' gun (made in 1947), I originally bought this weapon as a christmas gift for my dad, but thanks to my mom and her strong dislike of firearms, he had to give it back to me. It's been over a year since I've bought it, and I'm still debating on whether I should fire it or just keep it locked away in the safe.

Onto rifles/shotguns:

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/13car2.jpg
Charter Arms AR-7 Explorer (.22LR). Got this as a Christmas gift from one of my uncles a few years back. It's fairly accurate and reliable, but the reason I like it is for its portability. When you're done using it, you can tuck the reciever, barrel and magazine into the stock, making it easy to store.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/13car0.jpg
Mossberg 590 pump-action shotgun (12 gauge). Bought this as my primary deterrent/defensive weapon in the home against uninvited guests. It's proven...interesting to fire. First time I fired it I found the recoil to be quite strong, but controllable. Didn't experience much pain, but the day after firing it I noticed my right shoulder had turned into a nice shade of purple and red.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/13car1.jpg
Bulgarian Arsenal SLR-101SB (7.62x39). As I've always had a fondness for military rifles since a small child, I decided to buy this weapon last year. Although somewhat more expensive than the most of the other AK clones, I've found the SLR to be very well made, surprisingly accurate, and 100% reliable.

http://www.supercars.net/servlets/PW/garagePics/dont_matr/5car5.jpg
Crvena Zastava M48 Mauser (7.92x57). I recently bought this Yugoslav Mauser for just over $100 and found it in excellent condition for the price (aside from the fact that it seemed like it was submerged in cosmoline for about as long as I've been alive), I have yet to fire this weapon as I'm still struggling to get all the cosmoline out!

Your AK is especially interesting to me with its late model plastic hardware and machined reciever. I've not seen one like that before. Does it have a scope mount on the left side of the reciever ?

That High Standard is also quite nice. I encourage you to shoot it often.

Not quite, I have taken it and put it in a butler creek stock and fitted a scope rail, and on the top of that I put a Doctor 8x56 scope for the wild boare.

I wasnt using it for range work, but due to it being so damned acurate I thought that it was a waste just sat there in the safe, and I was looking to buy a larger caliber hunting rifle, so I killed two bird's with one stone.

My K98 was a captured by the russian's during ww2, and the finish suffered and none mumber matching part's, bit of a bugger's muddle until you see her perform on the range:biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: .

Nice pic's.

The stock that mine came in was let's say pitted at best, and any attempt's to restore it would have meant a lot of work as the dent's had ripped the tissue, so no chance of using a wet cloth and soldering iron to get them out, it would have meant hour's of sanding it down, and then refinishing it. Then I would have had to have it re-blued, at the end oo all that I probably wouldnt want to carry it hunting when the weather get's bad (sleet & hail).

Yes, ammo is part of the reason why I like mosin-nagants. Its like the oldest caliber still in production, and there is extra stocks of it up the ying yang. I'd come down to Texas to shoot that Mauser, except I think Burka Obama is there right now and that's just a bad omen in my eyes;)

Alas, I now only own a .22Mag Anchutz M1518 B/A rifle and a 12G Beretta DB shotgun, which I use to control vermin on a friend's vineyard.

I can identify with Shamus re the need to be prepared for the odd Cape Buffalo or an escaped circus lion!

Before the present gun laws came into effect in Australia in 1996 I also owned
a Browning A5 semi auto shotgun, a Remington 870 P/A shotgun, 2 AR-15s (a rifle and a carbine), a Ruger Mini 14 and a semi auto .22 Ruger 10/22.

When I was young (a long long time ago) I hunted deer and roo and owned a .270W Winchester M70 B/A, a .308 Remington M742 (if I recall correctly) semi auto, both a .243W and .222R Sako B/A and a .30/30W M94. I had all of these at the same time and luckily found ways to explain to my very patient and understanding wife that I had a justification for each! ;)

I also shot clay targets and owned a pair of Winchester M101 O/U shotguns. At the same time I was a registered pistol shooter and owned a .22LR Hi Standard semi auto, a .357Mag Ruger Security Six revolver and a .45ACP Colt Gold Cup semi auto.

When I look back I could weep at how much money I wasted on guns but it was great fun at the time! :eek:

I can identify with Shamus re the need to be prepared for the odd Cape Buffalo or an escaped circus lion!
I shed a large tear when I saw the nice collection you had to give up Tas.:frown: But I truly appreciate the support concerning the Cape Buffalo possiblity.When I mention this to my hunting partners or neighbors they start backing up slowly and mention some pressing chore they have to do like shaving the dog or helping their cat cough up hairballs.:confused: :biggrin:

well,

i have an Ottoman rifle who use a flint stone with a ribbed barrel....approx. 150+ years old, black wooden + silver inlaids + a very practical range device.

a long Ottoman sword named "Saldırma" if i am not wrong...it serves to cut shields with its alternative angled blade.

a swordstick (50+years old)

2 hand guns
-a browning 7,65mm which needs a very intensive care
-and a very little pistol i dont exactly its features...maybe i can show photos and WAB members may help me...

From the armory of the other side of "The War Of Northern Aggression," I have an Enfield 3-band .577 replica. I'm glad you're not shooting an original. The replicas are a blast if you get a chance to try one out.

It has a few friends in my safe:
M-1 Garande (built in '43, refurbished in '49 and remained in storage until issued to me in '93).
Two lever long guns; .22 and .357
AK-47
Stoeger double barrel.

A good friend of mine owns about 2 dozen 2 band and 3 band Enfields. He says he buys those instead of CDs or stocks. Its been a good investment for him.

He also has a Whitworth sniper rifle and a Burnside carbine!

I have fired the replica Springfield from a reenactment group. I used to have a replica Remington .44 cal pistol. I wasn't using it so I gave it to a friend of mine....who got a deer with it!

Since I am from germany...

Everything is forbidden, only Air guns, "gas" pistols (a kind of toxic gas which makes your opponent cry - if you are lucky! It dosn ´t work for example when he is drunk! But maybe he laughs a while and you can run away) and black powder weapons, if they are older than 1871 and have only one shot.

It s a different world!

By the way it is certainly possible to find illegal guns.

believe me nearly nothing!
Everybody throw the weapons away after the war.

If they find something like a "military weapon" which is for example a sub- ,or machine gun in your house, you go to jail for years!

What you might get are imported pistols from former eastern block or other european countries, but you also get hard punishment for this and if you do twice you also might see jail.

An aluminum baseball bat. I find that in the middle of the night it's a hassle trying to ensure that you have the label up, when using a wooden bat.

A family friend of mine has a German Luger used and aqcuired during WWII. It has pretty much all original parts, including the wooden grip. It is stamped 1915 and again 1920 (it was made in 1915 and refurbished in 1920). Since 1920 no part has been replaced (though we can only speculate as to what parts were or were not replaced befored it was aqcuired in the 40's, if any). His uncle found it in a captured German communications base in a drawer and brought it back to America with him. The pistol is still in perfect working condition, he shoots it from time to time and I have shot it myself. Quite a beautiful piece of kit, anyone who has shot a genuine luger knows what I mean. ;)

IT'S PINK...AND MY BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP!!!

AAHHHHH HHAAAAAA!!!

There is a free paper that shows up in our driveway and Confed has been throwing it away. The other day I asked that he bring it in so that I could look through it. I almost threw it away myself when I saw it was the Saint Charles Republican:eek: ...but then a headline on the front page caught my eye....

Pink guns now available for female hunters (http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/stcharles/news/x1295936309)
Geneva, IL -
Whoever said hunters couldn’t be fashionable hasn’t heard about the hot new item female hunters are hoping to get their hands on this season.
Pink handguns and 22-caliber long guns are the latest must-haves for women hunters, and are flying off the shelves at Gander Mountain, a hunting and camping store with a location in Geneva.
Gander Mountain began selling several types of firearms, including pink long-guns, a type of gun used for target practice, last year. Due to their popularity, the outdoor-goods chain added the pink handgun this year.
The addition of the guns, which were created exclusively for Gander Mountain by Remington and firearm manufacturer Taurus International Manufacturing Inc., was part of a plan designed to cater to a female-based clientele.
“More and more women are coming into the store,” said Tom Pattee, manager of Gander Mountain in Geneva. “Instead of sitting in the corner while men shop, they are the ones bringing the guys in here.”
Gander Mountain, which sells everything from moose-antler lamps to camping and fishing gear, recently began carrying more women-friendly gear at the request of its customers.
“We sell a lot more women’s stuff now,” Pattee said. “We’re becoming more of a family-oriented place to shop instead of just men.”
The company, which was established in 1962 and opened in Geneva in 2003, carries a selection of firearms, but the pink ones are reserved especially for the ladies.
“You’re not going to have too many guys running around with pink guns,” Pattee said.
Shooting sports have recently gained popularity among women, said J.R. Roe, owner of J.R. Shooting Sports in Aurora.
J.R. Shooting Sports offers handgun safety classes and a shooting range, in addition to a selection of retail items.
“A lot of our clients are women — I would say about half,” Roe said. “Some do it for enjoyment — others for self defense.”
At Gander Mountain, customers looking to purchase guns must undergo a background check to verify they have no felony convictions and no arrest warrants. Under state law, a Firearm Owners Identification Card must be presented and the customer is required to wait at least one day before purchasing the gun.
“We’re one of only two states that has that law — they can’t just come in and buy a gun the same day,” Pattee said.
Under state law, only the gun-owner can purchase a firearm.
“The regulations are stiff,” Pattee said. “We do a lot of business in gift cards around the holidays.”


Gander Mountain offers five types of pink firearms:
• Remington 870 Junior 20-Ga. Pink Shotgun
• Remington Model 597 22LR with Pink Laminate Stock
• Taurus Millennium Pro 9mm Semi-Automatic Pistol
• Taurus Millennium Pro 380 ACP Semi-Automatic Pistol
• Taurus Millennium Pro 32 ACP Semi-Automatic Pistol

Another Garand would definitely be nice. Unfortunately I can't find one at a reasonable price any more. My friend who tried my Garand loved it so much he wanted to buy one. But the cheapest ones he could find were around $500 and in only fair condition. The armory and select grade would run at$700 to well over $1000 and they were out also.

My Garand looked completely beat up when I bought it. I was told it had a new barrel, new receiver, and new gas tube along with GI parts. So it was essentially rebuilt. I couldn't complain for $500 (that was a few years ago). Who knew it could turn out to be a very accurate shooter piece? I bought new stocks for it and now it looks brand new. :)

When I was a boy I wanted EVERYTHING. But I did not get EVERYTHING. On birthdays I would receive NOTHING, unless I begged my old lady to buy me some clothing. My mother was/is a sweetheart, its the oldman that says NO to everything. We weren't poor or anything, that was just his tough love I guess. So now grown up, I'd remember what I used to ask for and actually go out and purchase them myself: Train set, fake pistols, dart set, GOOD roller blades, etc you get the point. I don't go around shooting my fake Rubber darts, I was just saying I have them.

I guess its a matter of age difference. Young children would rather own fake guns and shoot them around, while us 25+ year olds would rather own real guns and target practise as a hobby.

They haven't been produced for a long time. Just replacement parts are new. The Garands now are all old. Some older and more beat up than others. There are a few channels these Garands can show up on the American market.

One is re-imports. Garands phased out by foreign users are bought at whole sale prices and brought back. These are usually VERY beat up. Most allied nations are not very good at storing stuff because they don't have as much resources as we do.

The second is arsenal releases. There's a civilian marksman program that you can join, pay some money, qualify with the rifle, and then you have the right to buy a Garand released by the federal arsenal. These are usually in much better condition than re-imports for obvious reasons. We haven't been using Garands for 50 years and they all sat in big warehouses.

Not sure if you can get this program in Canada:

Nice looking weapon Gunnut, a good one too , removed many of them from the possesion of "bad guys" during the 70's and 80's

Thanks! It's a shooter though, not a collector's piece. The receiver is brand new manufacture rather than original GI part. It has virtually ZERO collector's value.

Don't know where else to post these so I post them here.

I went to the Reagan Library 2 weeks ago and took some photos. They aren't very good because I was not allowed to use flash.

Here are 3 guns displayed at the Reagan Library. I believe all were given to Reagan by manufacturers during his term.

This first is a Colt Walker. The caption reads "Revolver, the Colt Heritage Commemorative, 44 cal Walker black powder no. 1636; Courtesy Mr. Gary Kemp"

Nothing too exotic.

Lee Enfield No.4
Colt Trooper .357
Ruger Mk II 0.22 pistol
Ruger 9mm
Several Remington 870 shotguns
Several Ruger 77's in various calibers
Model 1886 Winchester in .45-90 - OK, that one is a bit exotic

Well.
I finally was able to go out and shoot the Kel-Tec SU16B. :biggrin:

I used two types of ammunition:
Remington UMC 55 GR. MC and prvi partizan FMJ BT 62 GR bullets.
Both types fired flawlessly in the rifle.

I put the front site post as near to zero as I could eyeball before I left. My first three rounds down range were hitting the target within two inches of bullseye, low, at about 100 meters (uneducated guess).
I moved the site to bring the round up higher and was still within two inches of center with my next three rounds.

I did this from the back of my truck bed using the built in bi-pod.
The bi-pod isn't as stable as I would like, but works as intended.

The recoil isn't bad either. Very manageable. I even had my wife shoot it and she didn't do too bad for the first time firing a rifle.

There were no jams, or errors while firing the rifle.
It was fun to shoot and will be a good survival rifle.

Next time out I will put the scope (3x9~40) on it and see what I can do with that.
Not a bad rifle for the price and its commonality with the M16.

Which is why I only own a Civil War era blackpowder rifle as an heirloom.

I no longer shoot weapons...did enough of it in the Army. Once you have blazed away with an M2 .50 cal for about 2500 rounds in one setting or gone through about 250 round sof 25mm from a BFV, anything else is pretty boring!!!

Chinese Ver of an RPK ..... I paid $ 300 bucks for it back in 92, i saw a similar one @ a gun show 3 yrs ago for $ 1300 it would probably worth more now ....

and I had a Norico 75 Rnd drum as well ..... paid $ 80 bucks for

wish I had bought a truck load back in 92

Truly tragic. I hear a lot of gun owners in CA also suffer from these "boating accidents." ;)

I personally sold all my good stuff when I saw the incoming ban in 1994. I kept my pistols and a few long arms that I know won't be banned in the foreseeable future...lever action rifle, pump action shotgun; side-by-side; and a mini-14.

There is a free paper that shows up in our driveway and Confed has been throwing it away. The other day I asked that he bring it in so that I could look through it. I almost threw it away myself when I saw it was the Saint Charles Republican:eek: ...but then a headline on the front page caught my eye....

THL here's the perfect purse gun for you.

I have been poor, and never owned more than the list shown, keep your unit in your pants and you will have more money to spend on toys and not Child Support, :eek: so I have not added to that list since I bought the M39 in 92 or 93 ....

Oh and the Type 14 came home from the Philippines with my Grandfather

M1A loaded-duracoat camo job on a bedded fiberglass stock-harris bipod-8-32 side adjust w/1/8moa and mil-dot ret(what else for an ex-army sniper)

Oly (lower only)ar-15 w/all kinds of cool stuff on it. hand picked parts-lots of one off mods on it.

My wife is a lefty so She has a dpms(upper and lower only) left hander ar-15.
built that one myself too.

I also just got her the new fn .45 for a secondary. Its fully ambidextrous and a nice shooter. load all 15 rds in it and it doubles the weight of the gun though. and she doesn't look a dork anymore shooting a right hander.

12ga moss w/ext mag

Marlin 45-70 for deer huntin' or whenever I feel like dislocating my shoulder!

taurus millenium pro 24/7 small one in .45 for concealed carry.

Colt 1911 series 70 stainless(old dogs hate new tricks...mostly)

marlin 22lr

stevens mod 311 side by side 12ga

and last but not least and probably my favorite. A Randall .45 service mod(only 2500 made) with a custom detonics heavy barrel(not many made). As far as I know it is probably the only one like it anywhere. I think the orig owner had set it up for to shoot .45 super. I had to take out one of the two recoil springs to fire factory ammo. One day I might load up some super, put the spring back and see what happens.

Oh I forgot to mention on my last post (All this gun talk gets me excited). Gunnut, that is a sweet lookin Garand. Glad to hear its a shooter. I think we should shoot all our guns till they cant shoot anymore, THEN put them in a museum and build some new guns to shoot!................ Did I mention I like to shoot? I take my Randall out all the time and my buddies think I should be saving it like a virgin that never gets old that I could sell someday for a few more bucks than what I got in it. To heck with that..... What else would you do with a virgin? (besides throw her in the volcano).
