Sig P-226

I picked up a SIG P-226 LE trade-in. I introduced it to my wife as, "My old 9mm..." No lie there and she shrugged when I brought it out, 'cause it sure didn't look new! Siggie's an excellent shooter.

I just picked up a Sig P239 9mm and I have a P6 on order.

I am also thinking about a Mossberg .308 that a local shop has. I have been looking for a budget .308 bolt gun.
So many guns, so little time.

Pink Crickett

A pink 22 Crickett 22 long rifle for my grand daughters to learn how to shoot.
The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come is to teach men to shoot!" -Theodore Roosevelt

Springer PX9154LP Loaded. I was a little worried about break-in because it was very tight, ended up not being a problem.

Last one I actually bought was a S&W 3913 LS. After that I did a little wheeling and dealing for a S&W .38/44 Heavy Duty. My newest acquisition was a Norinco SKS that was given to me.

The difference between 'anecdotal evidence' and 'empirical evidence' is:
Anecdotal evidence happened to you; Empirical evidence happened to me.

Most recently I bought a NIB Glock M24. Here's how she started....

then....I put a custom compensated lonewolf barrel in, a custom slide coverplate, ghost tactical 3.5# connector, a custom magwell extension (bought a plastic one...and cut it to shape), followed that up with ameriglow ghost ring night sights & a complete chrome pin replacement set including extended takedown pin & extended slide release.

Here's how she looks today:

Wow, thats a nice looking sight! Does it give you any difficulty with the holster, or does it still go in just as nicely?

New latest; Helped a guy out, he invited me to a gun store, Sprague's in Yuma AZ, I saw a Star S model, I made a big deal of it like a kid but lamented that I'd gone way over my gun budget lately. He tells the salesman "Put it back in the box".
A bit later he stops at a bank and cashes some checks and gives me the money for it. Won't take the money back cause I helped him plan a trip, something I do for fun, flying a light plane to Yuma, twist my arm! It looks like new, gorgeous all steel .380. Sign me "happy camper"
Colt Mustang hardened 416 stainless guide rods, Sig P-238 stainless triggers, Also Llama ,380 and .32 recoil spring plugs.

New 9mm

I bought a Stoeger Cougar 8000 for $359, I was looking for a double action 9mm (so I could afford to shoot) and had read different reviews for the Stoeger (formerly Beretta) and when I saw it at a local gun store, thought I would give it a try. Fits my hand very well and also fit my budget very well, shoots really nice and carries concealed really well... doesn't pull my pants down :-)

I am very pleased with this gun and when loaded with the proper ammo, will take care of self defense needs just fine.
I have more guns then I *need*, but no where near all that I *want*.
Still clinging to God and my guns. To paraphrase our "dear" leader.

Safe Queen

I picked up a near mint late war PPK at a local gun shop. Its rough as most of the late war guns are but the condition is really good. Although I did not know it at the time, it has what is known as "SA Shooting Team" grips on it which I am told are very desirable.It came with the black mag which I have since replaced with a flat based correct mag.

Back in July after i came back from deployment, I purchased a Rock Island Arsenal 1911. With the tiny GI sights I could get tight center-mass groups out to 75 feet. I am using it as a base to building up a custom gun. Bought it new for $380.
