    A certain Oberleutnant has a new 1911A1. Thank you Saint John Moses Browning. (pause to genuflect) Can't imagine why he wanted a 1911A1. :rolleyes: Der Apfel fällt nicht weit vom Baum, as we say...

    I got this today. Wanted one in .40......of course this one was a 9mm. Figured I’d at least know if I really want to fork out the money for the 5” .40 pro by shooting this one. Pistol feels really nice in the hand......heavy really,for what it is. I’ll shoot it this weekend.

    There have been slim pickin's in the pawn shops lately and they have been unwilling to deal on the ones they do have. I found an interesting one last week and was planning on going Saturday to get it. On the way home from work Friday I decided to stop at a couple of shops. I spotted this one...

    I have a Smith and Wesson Centinneal 38 cal pistol (nickel plated)with the serial number of L9476 and was wondering if anyone could date it.

    I have an old, post-war, pre-Model 10 with a bulged barrel. This is a shooter, not a pretty or expensive gun. Removing these barrels is fraught with danger, as it's supposedly very easy to bend or crack the frame. I chucked the barrel into my large vise and tried twisting the frame (after I...

    I traded for this Model 35-1 chambered in .22lr today. There isn’t a lot of info on the internet about this gun. This is the first one I have ever seen. Does anyone else own one? I am not well versed in S&W revolvers.

    What is this on the trigger? Is this something aftermarket?

    I've got "several" S&W wheelguns in many calibers and barrel lengths from 2" to 8 3/8". The long barrel ones are some of my favorites, no good for carrying but fun on the range. I rarely see the long ones at pawn shops but last week found two. One was to high but the other was a steal so it...

    Via a work contact my dad and I both manage to buy a shotgun this week. Dad bought a Revelation Model 350 in 16 gauge, it’s a western auto brand of a Savage/Stevens 94 from what I understand. The finish is really rough but the action is good. And the shotgun that I bought is a Smith and...

    Anyone with any first hand experience with the S&W M&P Bodyguard.38 Special revolver? I’ve provided a link below to the S&W product page, if anyone’s interested. I’m considering a snubby as a backup for my EDC, or possibly as a pocket fun for church or deep concealment situations. Had an...

    Since I am going to be moving in a few months, I went through some of my guns to pick out the ones I will sell first. And NO this one is not in the "sale pile" (unless you have DEEP pockets). I thought I would share the story on these guns if IRC. Back in 1985, a gentleman named Wayne Myers...

    A friend asked me to look at his Dad's gun and see if I could get it working. After putting a drop of SumGuy Lube for a couple of days, the rusted in sideplate screws came right out and I found that the spring that is pinned to the grip frame near the top and bears on the rear of the trigger...

    I got a chance this afternoon to shoot my new to me S&W 57. It's a handful with the full power loads. I need to find some cast bullets and load some plinkin' rounds. Found this one in a pawns shop yesterday. It's a 1980 Model 57 no-dash, pinned barrel and recessed cylinder. It had a rubber...

    S&W adds a 9mm to the EZ line.

    I would like yall's input on a decision. First off the purpose of this pistol will simply be to wear it in an OWB holster around the house as I work from home. If I leave the house I will be wearing my M&PC. Just looking for a light revolver even though I could get an OWB holster for say my...

    Have you ever bought a gun that you weren't really interested in or cared for? That happened to me at the estate sale Saturday. This 1976 Model 59 was laying on the table when I went in to look around. It didn't look to bad except for the front left side. Someone had engraved a number on...

    I've wanted a 25-5 for years but have never found one. I've watched a bunch of them on Gunbroker but they end up going for more that I've been willing to spend. I went to an estate sale yesterday to look at what I thought were a couple of 66's. When I got there I found out one was a 25. I...
