    Thread: The Official Vwvortex Firearm Picture Post

    1. 08-28-2008 08:30 PM #1
      Ok guys, maybe we need this, maybe we don't... I just thought it would be kind of cool to have a place where we can throw up pictures of new purchases, old loves, and all that... Here are a couple simple rules, and the mods can edit as necessary...

      1. One firearm at a time (multiple pictures are ok)

      2. No Nudity (I've seen some of those pixxx , don't need this locked)

      3. Constructive comments only, please... (i.e. don't be hatin on my all chrome'd out Hi-point)

      I'll start things off, with a few of my own... Enjoy!!!

      A daily carry, early 1960s S&W Model 38 Bodyguard. The color scheme was specially made for the Michican Police Suppy catalog. The CT grips aren't, however, 1960s vintage.

      Why do people always put things in front of their triggers - pens, knives, flashlights, etc. - when taking pictures? Hello, trigger safety?

      I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, the bus would explode! I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

      I know!

      The first time I took a pic of my Sig, I wanted to show it in SA mode, so I thumbed the hammer back, put a pencil through the trigger guard, and tossed it onto the table.

      BANG!

      Now I have a hole in the table.

      I suspect they're following Rule #3 and the guns aren't loaded, just like when you need to strip and clean one.... the trigger gets touched but it is OK

      Its to prop them up so they arent laying flat.

      Well obviously, but how about putting something between the slide and the table, rather than putting something right in front of the trigger?

      Well, its not like its a big deal if you practice safe handling. Its no different than dry firing which many of us do a lot.

      Check the chamber, double check it and there is no issue the way I see it.

      As others have pointed out, the guns are double checked to be unloaded. The picture I posted above of my P38 for example, the gun was unloaded, the safety was on, and when I positioned the flashlight, you will notice that it is not actually touching the trigger.

      Sorry, had to break rule #1. It was time consuming enough to line 'em some of them up.

      Don't make fun of my cheap black plastic and plywood guns. You'll hurt my feelings.

    25. 09-17-2008 06:12 PM #25
      Junky pictures...haven't taken anything...artistic yet.


      The one I'm trying to sell...


      The other two..one is personal, one is duty carry.

      Just started collecting, but here's my old school military collection.......

    27. 09-17-2008 10:24 PM #27
      I just bid on a new LWRC piston AR..my bank account is going to hate me if I win it...(sigh)

      But...before the eventual legislation.


    28. 09-17-2008 10:55 PM #28
      what brand of MP-5 is that ? HK, Vektor or other? I've been looking at either a PTR-91 or Vektor V-51 any suggestions?

      2. M1 Garand
      3. Madsen M47
      4. Swedish Mauser
      5. Arisaka Type 99?

      Pretty damn close......

      last 2 are actually both Mausers,,,, bottom is a Mauser Modelo Argentino 1909, and the Swede is a Carl Gustafs Model 1908.

      The FN49 is the 7mm Venezuelan version.

      Damn I should have responded - I was going to guess the exact same, with the exception of the Madsen M47..never seen it, heard of it - what is it? (I'm too lazy to wikipedia that...)

      It's actually one of my favorite old guns to shoot.... Fires 30-06 and is much easier on the body than the Garand. It is a Danish made rifle (Dansk Industri Syndikat A.S.) and was manufactured in 1947, They were sold in 1958 to the Columbian govt., who never issued them and they were sold surplus years later. only 5,000 rifles were ever produced. It's actually the last military bolt action rifle issued for general purpose use.


    34. 09-18-2008 08:47 AM #34
      One of my many:

      EAA Witness Compact Carry in Wonder Finish .45ACP

      and always a crowd pleaser:
      Savage Stryker 510 bolt action hunting handgun in .308:

      It's a GSG-5. Love it, great ergonomics. I wish the magazine could hold more rounds.

      Given your choices, I'd go for a PTR-91. Although I personally wouldn't buy one due to the cost of feeding 7.62 NATO.
