    Default Any handgun owners here? (silly question)

    I know I brought this up before in here, but couldnt
    find the old thread.

    Me- One Glock model 22, .40 caliber (2nd generation)
    What can I say, I guess I am a "tacical tupperware guy
    all around.

    -Bou

    PS- I had to share this with you. Can you find the mistake?

    Ruger P94-DC .40 cal and a Ruger Security-six .357

    Wife has a Taurus .38 snub-nose with a shrouded hammer and vented barrel. Pretty neat little purse gun.


    Can you find the mistake?
    Bou, there is no mistake. The magazine in the picture is designed for use in the special rear-firing model.

    Surely you didn't think they put the rounds in the mag backwards, did you?

    I kinda collect guns. It has always been something that I have done with my dad and grandpa. I prefer rifles and shotguns, but this is the latest...Springfield Armory, Micro-Compact 1911-A1. I really don't like the look of it (a gun has gata be pretty ya know), but it was a super deal and my dad insisted that, despite what I think, S&W is NOT the ONLY manufacturer out there, and that everyone should have at least one from Springfield...anyway...

    Handgun owner here. I carry one everyday.
    There's a picture on my homepage http://www.geocities.com/cellblock776 showing some of my hardware.
    Shown are-
    AR-15 (x2), Rem 870 12 gauge, Ruger P-89 (x2), Star BM 9mm, Star Super B 9mm, Bersa .380 cal, Davis .22mag derringer, Ruger Mk2 .22LR.
    Got more plus the required militia gear such as a set of Soviet First Gen night vision binos, Kevlar Helmet, LBE, M17 NBC mask w/spare filters, etc, etc, etc...
    Most who have been on this board for awhile have seen my pics with my different gear.
    You can never be too prepared.

    At the current point in time I have 2 pistols, but I am eyeballing 2 more.

    I have a Sig-Sauer P229 chambered in .40 S&W (I consider the 9mm to be a garbage round.)

    A couple months ago we (the Mrs. and I) bought a Sig-Sauer P245 which is chamber in .45 for those that don't know.

    Both with night sights.

    We both have small hands so we need a weapon that allows for good control of actions and levers.

    I will probably be buying a Kimber 1911 model called teh "Warrior" as I have this overwhelming need to have one of the best handguns ever designed and made. Besides, as a former Marine, I figure if the "Warrior" is good enough for Detachment 1, it is good enough for me.

    The second one I want is a Sig-Sauer Mosquito (see a common theme there?) which is a .22LR pistol. I love Sigs and figure that since I truly enjoy shooting, .22s are hell of a lot less expensive than .40s or .45s.

    When I own a house, I'll probably get a good rifle. I love rifle shooting and REALLY want an M-14.

    I have mostly long guns (SKS rifle that I bought cheap from a deputy friend of mine, Browning 16 gauge automatic shotgun and Winchester .308 bolt action rifle given to me by my dad, and my regular duck hunting gun, a Remington 870 Magnum 12 gauge pump...oh, and a single shot .410 crack-barrel with the trigger guard missing that I used to hunt squirrels with when I was a kid)

    The Browning is one of the Belgian made "Sweet 16" models, the ones with the gold plated trigger. I'm told it's worth a few bucks (had offers before but I'm not selling)

    My only handgun is a Smith & Wesson Model 586 357 Magnum (nickel plated) that I bought from my brother-in-law when he got out of the Sheriff's Office reserves.

    Eventually I suppose I'll get the rest of my dad's guns, which include a Winchester Model 12 16 ga. pump, a Remington .22 automatic rifle, a Colt Woodsman .22 automatic pistol, and a little Barreta .22 automatic.

    Really the only thing I'd like to add to my collection is a model 1911 .45 auto...always wanted one. Colt would be nice, but a Springfield would be OK...one of these days, I guess....

    Not a big shooter....haven't fired the .357 in years. Do a little hunting, but not that much...ducks and squirrels mostly....

    No handguns, but I do have a Remington 870 Wingmaster. Only the greatest shotgun ever made.

    And my favorite, my Browning compound bow. Set at 70 lbs, will go right through the side of a shed. (target practice mishap)

    Socialism = the reduction of individual rights and liberties "for the good of everyone."

    Canada is moving to the far side of the gun control issue. They are becoming more like Australia and Great Britain where personal ownership of firearms is becoming heavily restricted. This allows for the criminals to not have to fear for their own safety when they use their own illegal firearms.

    And someone remind me again just how well that's working to reduce crime in those countries?
