    Gun thread

    Someone mentioned that we needed to get a room, but threads get so specific, the conversation never gets to wander, and fun is limited, so i started this one, no topic, no central theme, just guns, just us. Just GO!

    Pics and cheeseburgers welcome

    i will start: Springfield stopped by the shop today, he was heartbroken that i would no longer persue his .45, in fact you are now all safe. but when my time comes, just as what i drive, here comes T-Rex!

    * neat avitar huh? Like the lava lamp we got at the shop, well not so good, but.....

    i heard tell of a 1911 that you can convert back and forth, with parts that are undoubtedly pricey (i aint payin, just a sayin). you can go .40 .45. 10mm all on the same platform. if it's available in REAL STEEL i would love a link. something just to save so to speak.

    A smith could fit a 9mm, 38 special, .40 cal, 10mm and 45 acp barrel all to one gun. Just swap barrels and mags.

    You guys are all calling your guns by the wrong name. Please follow the official guide below. You all have Glocks, nothing special.

    9mm, .40/10mm, and .45 ACP. Yeah, I'd buy one if I could talk the wife into it. She just "thinks" she wants a new car......

    Thumbs up My Large Caliber Pistol....Lone Eagle In 30-06

    Here is my largest caliber pistol: A Lone Eagle In 30-06 purchased way back in the middle 90's. It is very manageable and fun to shoot!

    On a side note, yesterday I FINALLY found a Viridian C5 laser sight and holster for my Taurus. Found tons of laser sights, found tons of holsters, but I just couldn't find a combo that was compatible with each other in a SERPA config

    Took it out to the range yesterday, and was super impressed with it. Even in broad daylight, no problem at 25 yards! Hooray!!!!

    I sure wish I still had the spare money to spend on nice firearm stuff. As it is, remodeling a kitchen and a bathroom at the same time is mega expensive.

    My pistol is plastic for the most part (Glock 21) and my wife's revolver is a Taurus 650CIA in .357mag, deep blue finish. It's actually a really nice little shooter, especially with .38 special target rounds. I've been able to knock over bowling pins at the gravel pit at a distance of 30' with consistency, even with the 2" barrel.

    Last year for my birthday my wife got me an LED combat light with a squeeze switch routed to the hand grip, all mounted on a picatinny rail for our home-defense shotgun, which is a Mossberg 500 persuader with rear pistol grip, collapsible butt stock and a 6 shell side saddle on the receiver, all in flat black plus a mean looking heat shield over its 18" barrel. I know the forum is dedicated to open carry of handguns, but our shotgun is a real sweet piece and I wanted to share.

    On a light bragging note, we do have one gun in our safe that is kind of a treasure for people of our limited income: A Browning BPS fieldmaster 12-gauge with 26" barrel, full set of chokes and fancy flame-figured walnut woodwork. NIB, never been fired and never will be fired. I take it out twice a year to clean and re-oil the metal bits, then rub some lemon oil into the wood. We plan on passing it down as a family heirloom, and someday it should be a real treasure.
