      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.

      Glad I found this post so quick. In this same color scheme, check out what followed me home last week. Cute little bugger. I think I'll keep it.

      Hmmm, porty things...

      And a "mug shot" sort of look.

      Mug shots of the rest of the small gang:

      And the group shot. I'm an equal opportunity buyer.

      It seems the government is currently saying, "While we're conducting this unspecified, unwarranted surveillance, we're totally thinking about how to not violate the 4th Amendment that we're currently violating. Because terrorism."

      I have a S&W Airlite waiting for me at the shop. Just gotta get some time to go in and fill out the paper work for it. That little wheel gun you picked up is nice.

      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

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

      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.

      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?

      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.

      Nice Sigs. I picked up a P6 a while back when they were newer in the country and cheap, and I've been really impressed with it.



      And with the rest.



      I'm thinking I need a full size wheelgun or compact auto to round out the group a bit.

      I also broke rule #1, but I can't dig them out right now...

      I also have a stripped A2 with lower and an A3 with lower. Both are ready to be built...

      Nice shotgun
      I have the same 500A minus the Knoxx stock.

      The local store had them on sale a few years back at $219, it has been a good gun.

      It eats anything except these Nobel Sport 00-Buck shells which seem to get hung up sometimes trying to chamber one. They're not any longer than 2.75", but they don't want to slide into the chamber smooth, I'll sometimes need to try to pump it again to get it to seat one.
