    GUNS!

    So, this is my first gun thread...

    In my absence, what have I missed, gun-wise? Anyone bought any new toys? Any stories to share?

    (Anti-gunners keep out!! This is not the thread for you.)

    We missed you.

    We are interested in a 50 cal sniper rifle; but alas, it's too expensive. Next family movie night will be watching Shooter (for the umpteenth time) again. May be if we pooled our funds together, we could afford it.

    Still carrying my Ruger LCR .38 Special on a daily basis. Great pocket gun! Although, I'd like to move up to the Ruger LCR .357

    How are the laws where you live, Adam? Do they support the Constitution or do are they communistic in their views?

    *Meh* Still carry a S&W638 but I've got my eye on a custom grip. Also pondering the concept of upgrading my carry to a high cap. 9mm., specifically a SigPro 2022.

    Just recently bought a S&W M&P.40 for the house gun.

    I open carry when I feel like it, if that answers your question.

    No....I'm a purist. I only use iron sights on my handguns....but I don't mind some nice tritium inserts now and again.
    The grips I'm referring to are ivorywood.

    50 cal for under $3000.00 plus cost of scope.

    Been drooling over the 1886 Winchester Extra Light in 45 70, won't take long before I can't stand looking any longer and start buying.

    It's a bush gun (short range) but will take anything down on this continent.

    I still have the special rifle I got so many years ago. It's Japanese. Arisaka 7.7 mm. The 7.7×58mm Arisaka cartridge or Type 99 rimless 7.7 mm was chambered in the World War II Arisaka Type 99 Rifle. It was used in WWII by the Japanese. This was the weapon they issued to their riflemen who escorted machinegun companies, and it used the same ammunition that fed their machineguns. It was also used against low-flying aircraft; it had side-bars on the rear sights so that you could lead the target aircraft. But here is the neat thing about this rifle. It can hit a small bullseye at 100 yards with no elevation. The bullet does not drop at all over that distance. A totally amazing rifle for that day and time.

    Very good rifle for what it was designed for.

    Had one many years ago, wish I still had it!
