      well, after going through all the pages...i'm ready to at least contribute a couple pics...

      i have to get a pic of the shot gun and rifle this weekend but for now i'll leave these here...

      Springfield Armory .40 EMP 1911




      and the gun everyone seems to hate...
      Sig Sauer P229 "Diamond Plate Edition" 9mm




      I love the EMP! I still haven't gotten around to shooting the Sig yet...

      but i got a killer deal on it! i also then found out it has factory Hogue Aluminum Grips and night sights...

      yeah i had an XD for the longest time...

      then i got rid of it and told myself i'd get something better. 2 years went by...things just happened and i never got anything...

      went to springfields website and saw the EMP and said i must have it lol

      sometimes i think maybe i should have gotten the 9mm version but...oh well. i'm glad i got the LD grips with mine though. i had to send it back to springfield though but all is well now

      Why do you wish you had bought the 9mm version sometimes?

      I've been eyeballing this pistol for a while with the wooden grips. Probably end up biting on it soon. I've been debating on whether to get it in 9mm or 40.

      Did your's come with the old blue case or the new grey case?

      first off, i've never shot the 9mm version so i cant be for certain if its better or not...but my .40 has a Forged Steel frame where the 9mm has a Forge Aluminum frame...i think its something like 9ozs lighter...not that i want lighter...9mm is just cheaper i guess.

      look i like the .40 EMP a lot! its basically a hand cannon 1911 lol. its real tight and built extremely well IMO and shoots great!

      btw, the wooden grips are alright but they are no where near as good as the ones mine have above. Its a great pistol and i know people who have both and say other than weight, they are pretty much identical shooting and feel....mine came in the blue case

      ehh, I would still keep that **** locked up. Even living in the sticks, I'm too paranoid keeping my, albeit small, selection of guns out in the open like that.

      I would like to display my firearms like that but would only be comfortable doing it if that room was behind a locked steel door, basically a giant safe. Recently bought a regular safe to keep my collection safe. Everything is in with the exception of the 12ga and carry pistols for me and the wife.

      I think a regular locked door would suffice. Can even be a glass door so you can see them.

      I'd like to think that when I own my own house, I'll have a walk-in gun vault.

      I agree our storage is not ideal, but that room is an attic at the rear of the house (guy lounge), only one entrance that is locked. Doors are locked, rural area, no kids, ammo and personal defense arms kept in a separate part of my home. I feel they are quite secure.

      Went out earlier cause my wife was bored and picked up some new powder, bullets and scope rings. Still working up some good loads in my 8mm so if the weather is good tomorrow I can get out and have some fun.

      My new Sig P226 Tac Ops shortly after it's first trip to the range (and subsequent cleaning). If I understand correctly, the Tac Ops is just a rebadged P226 Blackwater.

      And yeah yeah, I know that for the same price I could have bought a Glock and a bunch of ammo or 8 Hi Points ...

      A guy on a local forum built a room in his basement, blocked it off, left an opening the size of a gun cabinet/vault and took the back off of a cabinet. Open it up and walk through it there's his room. Pretty badass.

      I would use a vault, and bolt it to the wall opening and have the back of the vault hinge in. Badass idea though.

      The P226 you have is very nearly a copy of the Blackwater "Tactical" P226R. They had a normal Blackwater model which had some nice black-wood grips etc. The Blackwater Tactical model was basically the absolute max-loaded P226R model.

      It had all of the features of the various models: The SRT, The Elite, and the other comp model...all crammed into one gun.

      When I got my BWT model it was about $950 but came with 5x 20-Rnd magazines.





      It was a great gun, but honestly it was just way too big to be of real use. The P226 in general is a pretty decent sized handgun, the extended grips etc made it even more-so. I only regret selling it because of the Blackwater grips and logos etc. It would have become a serious collectible item at some point.

      Yeah, the thing is absolutely huge and not entirely practical in non-post-apocalyptic world. It was very much an impulse buy, but so far I'm happy with it. I made it a point to beat the hell out of it during its first outing and the gun itself performed wonderfully. Except...

      ...In the transition from Blackwater to Tac Ops, Sig went with a different magazine manufacturer (cheaper). Yours appeared to have been made by Mec Gar, the 4 that came with mine were the new sh!tty ones (the chance of the slide locking back after the last round was about 50/50). I rectified the problem by buying Mec Gar's and have not encountered any issue since.

      Yeah, I was a little saddened to hear they went cheapo on the magazines. Lots of guys complaining about it. I actually had a couple of issues with my MecGars, but I attributed it to being brand new. I only put about 400 rounds or more through it before I sold it. If I needed a good duty weapon, I'd gladly run a Sig226R without complaints.

      I wasn't a big fan of the DA/SA though and won't go back to it unless really forced. The P226R though is so f-ing sweet shooting. Much like a full size 1911, the size/weight and crisp SA action make it obnoxiously easy to shoot, accurately and quickly.

      I can really see the draw of the new E2 model P229Rs (I'd like the smaller size). I know Sig has some serious quality control issues lately, but the 226 and it's line are great handguns.

      Some of the Sig models are silly - but this is kind of cool? A tactical FDE handgun with stippled...wood grips!?



      EDIT: Micarta (G10) grips...hmmm...seems pretty cool.

      Also, the revolver looks like it was coated, as opposed to blued - yes? Maybe it's my sh_t monitor, but it just looks like it's cerakoted or something. Looks nice though.
