Well my first gun was a sxs 12 gauge smoke stick passed down thru the generations that got to me in 1965. It had been shortened drastically for use as a scatter/coach/cavalry shotgun by my ggg grandpaw when he mustered in with the 19th Texas Volunteer
cavalry to serve in the Red River campaign. I have over the years tracked it down to being made around 1840 by a gunsmith in Birmingham England and proofed at the Birmingham Proof Company. Being antique I shot it only once with a lifgt load of BP and #8 bird shot. I still have it as a wall hanger. I also inherited a framed "photo" image of ggg grandpaw "CW" holding what appears to be either a Colt Walker or a very non-standard 3rd Model Dragoon.

I have to answer this in two parts. A few weeks ago, I found a 5" Ruger GP-100 at my local cal ranch. I have never really been interested in revolvers but I noticed it was a 5" which I thought was pretty rare for a GP-100. I came home and looked it up and found that the 5" was a limited edition. I went back to cal ranch to look at it and there was no limited edition stamp... I bought it for the novelty of that.

After letting it sit around for a couple of weeks, I finally took it out.... It quickly climbed just about to the top of my list of favorites! Not only is it accurate, but the thing is heavy enough that, with that houge grip, it barely moves. I have always been a S&W fan but I have to admit, I think the GP-100 is at least as good.

The second part of this is because I liked the GP-100 so much, I ordered some dies and started reloading .357s so I pretty much HAD to get a rifle or carbine to go with the revolver. I settled on a Rossi 92m and was pleasantly surprised with it as well. Just like the Ruger, it wasn't my first choice but I am a fan of stainless and it was the only stainless .357 carbine I could find in the state of Utah. It has plenty of negative reviews but, with about 2 hours of bench time, I was able to iron out the problems with the gritty lever and $3 in JB weld and a little patience allowed me to fix the feed tube to the front barrel ring so it doesn't move like a lot of people report. It is a REALLY fun gun to plink with!

I think it was both my first and last "gun" since in 1965 antique firearms and cap and ball weapons were still considered firearms per the laws in effect at that at that time.

Bought, S&W SW 99 40 cal but since then I traded it in for a 1945 Russian M44 & a Ruger P944 40 cal even swap so I got a two for one deal.

C'mon guys..this would be so much better with pics..
no pictures yet since I have the M44 in pieces at the moment doing some work on the stock and adding some bolt on stuff to it like a brass stacker mount, a long eye relief scope, recoil pad, bolt on muzzle break, and a bolt on bipod. Will photograph it when completed.

Charter Arms Target Pathfinder,,,

Charter Arms Target Pathfinder,,,
Nice little J-frame sized revolver in .22 LR



Here it is with the original grips,,,
And a set of wood grips from handgungrips.com.

I bought it tentatively as a gift for a young lady,,,
Who graduated with her B.S. in Industrial Engineering,,,
I've taken her shooting many times and she really enjoys it.

Our university mascot is Pistol Pete,,,
I'm making her a rig very similar to Pete's gunbelt & holster,,,
Since I make the ones for the mascots I'm fairly certain it will look fine on her.
