"what's your latest firearm purchase" ???


March 23, 2003, 05:43 PM
I guess I started this threat to "show off" my latest firearm purchase -- a mint condition S&W 627 pc with a short barrel.

I don't buy S&W new, so it has taken me over a year to find a used 627 pc in top condition.

Here's a stock photo of the model I just purchased (not the one I actually own).

:D :D :D

What's your latest firearm purchase -- and show a photo of it if possible?

5-screw M&P


March 23, 2003, 06:13 PM
My last was a few weeks ago ... the long sought after replacement Smith Mod 27 ...... this one was originally purchased in early 1977 and is I'd say amongst the last of the 5" barrel versions made.

I did post the pic before but ... here it is again ..... damn, I love this piece!!:)


March 23, 2003, 06:14 PM

CZ75 single action from a fellow THR member. Waiting for the FFL copy to get to him before he can send to my FFL guy.

The wait is killing me.

March 23, 2003, 06:17 PM
My latest purchase was 3 handguns and 2 rifles! I got 2 Russian M-44s, a CZ-52, a Argentine Hi Power Detective and a S&W 19 target with the 6" bbl. Can you guess which one I like best?

S&W 19 BABY!

March 24, 2003, 12:04 AM
Just got this about 7 weeks ago. It's generally with me at the range once a week, and it rocks! Shot it today along with my pet .45, a custom Mark IV.

March 24, 2003, 12:10 AM

Tamara and P95carry!! Yer killin’ me!!! I collect Smith & Wesson revolvers; from the late named models up until about ’92 when they stopped making square butts. Don’t ask me why, but I love the damn things. Some day I’ll post pictures of them all (about 19 at last count- I mean damn, three?!?!? Model 27’s?…)

But the California regs on handgun testing has harshly curtailed my collecting.

I’m jealous.


March 24, 2003, 12:30 AM
Sig 230 Blue off of Glocktalk. It completes my Sig family. :) and fills my "you don't have a need for this gun"niche. :D

March 24, 2003, 12:51 AM
My lasted would be a Nowlin/Caspian LW in 38 super. I put the night sights back on it.....maybe some bo-mars would make it just right.

March 24, 2003, 12:53 AM
Walther PP in 7.65 Browning, made in 1986 (has Walther Centennial logo). This is a surplus gun brought into the country by Century Arms. Except for some holster wear is in very good to excellent condition. Hard to believe that this was the European equivilent of the Smith M10 as a police weapon.

March 24, 2003, 12:59 AM
Taurus 94 .22lr 2". So far it's a keeper. :cool:


March 24, 2003, 02:16 AM
finally bought a .22, little bolt action romanian rifle, shoots like a dream.

March 24, 2003, 02:30 AM
A Ruger 96/17. Just had to have one. Now if only I could fine the ammo at a good price......

The Pig.

March 24, 2003, 03:17 AM
A blued Beretta 92 FS in 9mm.

March 24, 2003, 03:59 AM
Just picked up my USP40 ordered from CDNN with night sites for a super cheap 470.

Looks good, has a different light gold finish instead of stainless.

Going to fire it today.

March 24, 2003, 04:21 AM
Bought another SKS.

Next aquisition will likely be a Saiga-12.

March 24, 2003, 11:32 AM
Just got a Mini-14. I love it. 30 round and 10 round mags.

Now, I need a 9mm pistol, and a 9mm sub rifle.


March 24, 2003, 11:46 AM
My latest purchase was a Remington 870 20 gauge that I bought for my fiance for her birthday. No, wait. That would be an illegal straw purchase. What happened was, I bought myself that gun, then later decided to give it to her as a gift.

No pic because, well, who really needs to see that?

My latest acquisition is great fun. It's a Rossi Matched Pair, with barrels for .17 HMR and .410 shotgun. My brother actually bought it for himself, then decided it really belonged at my property, so he gave it to me. No, really! He did!

Anyway, here's a pic I took after a buddy gave me a cheap Tasco scope for the .17 HMR barrel:


March 24, 2003, 11:52 AM
A pre-owned FN BHP. Next on the list is either a sleek and sexy Huglu or EAA Baikal O/U 12ga or a Marlin 1895 in 45-70 Govt.

Leaning toward the Marlin and a supply of Buffalo Bores since the big, brown uglies are going to be crawling out of their holes soon.

March 24, 2003, 11:58 AM
since the big, brown uglies are going to be crawling out of their holes soon

stevelyn, this had me very confused until I saw your location. I've an aunt in Skagway and an uncle on Kodiak- I've seen your 'big brown uglies' and I'll stick with the 'itty bitty California version.

Is .45-70 enough gun?

CZ 75 BD
March 24, 2003, 12:03 PM
All weather Ranch rifle, SS/Synthetic in .223:D Shoots great!!:D

March 24, 2003, 12:08 PM
Last purchase for me was a Norinco SKS last month.

March 24, 2003, 01:27 PM
I guess I have too many guns when I can't remember which one was last... I think it was my unissued K98.

This week, I'm getting a P9 Covert and a Norinco Tokarev copy... and maybe a another 22 rifle of some sort... I'll get back to this thread then.


March 24, 2003, 02:53 PM
I'm killin' you?

And here I was all stoked that this M&P made Smith number 17!

I can see I have some catching up to do!! :eek:

March 24, 2003, 05:53 PM
My last was a used Ruger Single Six with both cylinders and a couple of days before that it was a NIB Charles Daly pre-enhanced. Got the Ruger for $160 + tax and the Charles Daly for $320 without tax. Sorry no pictures.

March 24, 2003, 06:38 PM
My latest purchase a Beretta U22 Neo's. Kinda looks ugly but I really like it so far. http://home.twcny.rr.com/peetmoos/Neos.jpg

March 24, 2003, 06:47 PM
This is silly; I need to go buy something new. My last purchase was an Izhmash CM-2 .22 target rifle;


but this doesn't count (I found out after picking the rifle up that apparently this rifle was displayed at the 2002 SHOT show and they modified the firing pin to be non-working- but didn't re-modify it when it was released to my dealer... I'm brushing up on my Russian :D ).

I need to purchase a FUNCTIONAL firearm.

March 24, 2003, 06:54 PM
Latest purchase was a 1938 Mosin Nagant with laminated stock and its cousin, a MN 91/59.

No pics yet as they're still making their way here from Ohio. These are the last for a long time, I swear it. Dang C&R anyway.:uhoh:

March 25, 2003, 02:26 PM
About six weeks ago I picked up a Marlin 1895 in .45-70, it's my first lever gun and I love it.

March 25, 2003, 05:05 PM
I can't believe I have to post in this latest firearm purchase thread again... but I am happy to be doing it!

Just fired my USP40 yesterday, and picked up a used, like new, chrome Kel Tec P-32 today. Got tired of saying to myself, this money could go toward getting the Kel Tec... thank goodness for credit!

And because my wife is strange, I picked up a Walther P99 for her finally, on my card, since she forgot her card. She didn't want to leave it since it was a very nice one, used, for a lot less than we have seen around here. So, she wants me to pick a gun to put on her card, to exchange for the P99 which is on my card, instead of just paying me to pay off my card for her gun... okay, I'll pick something out!

March 25, 2003, 05:29 PM
And because my wife is strange, I picked up a Walther P99 for her finally

Heh, my wife, after shooting my Glock 23, decided it was now HER G23.

March 25, 2003, 06:58 PM
About a month ago....it's my carry gun.I love it...although now I'm thinking 1911.............................:D

March 25, 2003, 08:49 PM
If I could get my wife to shoot, and she wanted to keep any of my guns, she could have her pick.

Well, that is unless she wanted my Mark IV.............

March 25, 2003, 08:55 PM
Stevie ....... my dilemma would be which gun to give my wife ... period!!!! She can shoot most but so far has not asked to keep one. In theory I want her to have her own but ..... damned if I can decide which one I should give up if that were the case!!

Selfish SOB I am .... I want em all....... all the time!!

Guess it'd be a case of buy her one specially ... and another of same sort for myself ...... so I didn't feel ''left out''!:D

March 25, 2003, 09:19 PM
My latest acquisition is a 1960's National Ordnance M1Carbine that I traded a Marlin Camp Carbine for.

I now have 2 M1 Carbines with little invested. Both are Nat. Ord. non USGI built, but used all USGI parts.---------Chainsaw

March 25, 2003, 10:24 PM
A Yugo SKS, a M1908 Brazilian Mauser, an 8mm FN49 and a Austro-Hungarian M95 Mannlicher straight pull long rifle still in the original chambering.:D :D :D :D

Nice Model 27 Phil in Seattle; I have a 5" in the wood presentation box, unfired- and I havn't had the heart to turn the cylinder. Love them N frames.

March 26, 2003, 01:22 PM
Since the first of the year I have gotten a few new toys, and only lost one. I sold my ChiCom SVD and have purchased a Beretta M9, an Saiga 12ga (which I am selling to get the LEO version, just in case anyone is interested drop me a line for pics and details), a Remington 700PSS and some glass for it, a LAR .50 and glass, and a couple of .45's

It has been a good year so far, but I think I am down to just two more rifles before I move into suppressors. Anyone know if a suppressor manufacturer gives a discount if you buy multiple units? I need a .22, 5.56, 7.62, 9mm, and .45. I had thought about getting one for the .50 too, but figured it would not be worth it. Anyone have experience with .50 suppressors?

March 26, 2003, 02:09 PM
A stainless AMT .380 Backup.....Needed a backup piece small enough to pack in the midst of Blissninnie turf in Sillycone Valley.:p Bought the piece in one of the few remaining stores that sell handguns in the SF Bay Area... Took me over an hour of paperwork, checks, "Safety Instructions", demonstrating safe useage. repeated apologies from the clerk, paying 'fees' (Lots of those) in addition to the sticker price, state tax, whatever. Got the little weapon - after a 10-day 'cooling off' period, I had a bit of an argument with the clerk about the triggerlock, seems I was supposed to leave the store with this thing locked firmly to the gun = Surprise! I had alredy had the piece enterd onto my California CCW permit (I come from a county with a gun friendly Sheriff) Bought the Damn lock, dropped it in a bag, dropped the gun in my jacket pocket... left.
Now that I know the drill, stupid and expensive and time consuming as it is, if I find anything else I want, I'll likely get it too (now that the "One Handgun a Month" prohibition has run out.
:rolleyes: = Life in a "Socialist Utopia!"..... OK, Rave Mode 'OFF'.
The little .380 shoots well at 15 feet and weighs about a pound... 3 more shots than a Derringer... hope I never have to use it...But:neener:
