That would be at the gun show this afternoon. A nice clean S&W Model 36-1; factory nickel plated, 3" barrel, round butt. The only negatives are that the stocks aren't original and, for some reason that totally escapes me, about half of the knurled surface of the hammer is partially bobbed.

Most recent (of my very few) is stainless 3 inch Ruger SP101 .357 revolver. This thing has amazing balance and remarkable accuracy (especially after I upgraded to Hogue Monogrip). Small enough for concealed, strong enough to stop anything shy of a grizzly. This has become my nightstand gun - no chance of jams, and stopping power galore with load of 4x.38+P and one 'Hail Mary' Hornady Critical Defense .357. The .357 is last because its muzzle flash if first round might make subsequent shots difficult.

Traded my Ruger LCP for a new one with the better sights and improved trigger.

Bought a Remington 700 SPS last time I was on leave, along with 100 rounds of Federal Gold Match. Never got to zero it

Originally, I offered to buy it, but he wanted to trade because he knew I had .22lr ammo. He wanted 2 boxes, but I told him 3. It is missing the spring gate screw. Ordered for $3 plus $5 shipping. The going rate for bulk .22 round these parts is $65-75 a brick.

1964-1965 S&W Model 10 2" barrel. Couldn't resist the $229 price tag ($244 out the door). Shoots where it points. One of those rare fixed sighted guns that really got sighted in (158gr bulleted loads). I replaced the synthetic mother of pearl grips with these modified exotic wood ones from Thailand. [IMG][/IMG]

I am having a horrible time getting good lighting in my house. Need to read up on some tips on photographing guns

Keeps raining here when I am not at work....had to settle for natural light around dusk

Sig P239 SAS Gen 2 9mm two-tone; night sights, SRT trigger, 3 mags. 10 months old.

My FFL had it in his case for $379 when I was there picking up something else; I mean, how could I possibly not buy it?

last gun

Last gun I bought was just two days ago. It is a Glock 23 gen 4, 40 cal. My first polymer pistol. I have been a skeptic for years. Steel all the way, 1911, Beretta, Ruger revolvers, Dan Wesson etc. I came over to the dark side! Now I know why they are so popular. I will probably be getting another one.

A (Service Grade H&R Special) Garand in the Anniston CMP, yesterday. They are behind about 5,000 M-1s, they told me (due to ammo orders).
There were about nine Specials when I entered, about six when I left. Don't know how to post photos etc.

Factoring in the many parts of the growing anxieties: misunderstandings about the recent Pres. Exec. order, the new ATF Politburo Kommissar, inflation etc, guys who Only buy several of them to resell at shows (one lives near Memphis)...Hillary in the White House... a future Terrible Event...it could be quite a while before they catch up enough to have Service Grades on display in the racks.

A Beautiful Uberti 1858 Remington. I still am amazed at how accurate those black powder replica shoot.
