Taurus PT1911AR

Bought it used, fired about 400 rounds until it locked tight with a live round. The pin holding the barrel lug had to be cut. The local gunsmith has no idea why the slide moved too far forward. My only and last Taurus.

Just got my long awaited Ruger American .308 yesterday and shot it today. Lots o' fun.
Yes, it's the apocalypse alright. I always thought I'd have a hand in it.

CZ vz70 in pretty good shape ... once again, you do not argue wien the wife wants a particular gun, you just buy it

... even if it takes hard-to-find magazines, or has a wrong-way safety
... ... at least the decocker is safer than the CZ vz52's!

Browning Cynergy 12ga O/U, 30" barrels, synthetic stock done up in Realtree Max 4 camo from stem to stern. Sure isn't the most elegant looking shotgun ever, but it makes my inner redneck so happy I could do cartwheels!

Gen 3 Glock 23 earlier this year, picked up 5 extra regular capacity mags for it, too. Shoots great, I have no idea why 8 didn't get one of them earlier.

Posted from my busted old G2 on T-mobile's sorry network.

It started out as a used Ruger MKii, but now it looks more like a longer version of the Amphibian. It sounds like my air pistol when I use CCI std vel ammo. $520 including the pistol and $200 tax.
