I just bought me a Taurus 851 snubbie during my lunch hour at the LGS
closest to where I worked. Before that, I bought a Glock 23 last Friday.

My first Winchester Model 70

1959 Winchester Model 70, 30-06 springfield. Nothing extraordinary and not a safe queen, Just a nice honest original with no extra holes. Shot it across a canyon in Az. before I brought it home and hit the 8 in. rock I was aiming at at about 250 yds. off of a car hood. I am happy!

Well, it's still on layaway. Does that count?





Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum from 1954. A 5 screw, "pre-27", with a 5" barrel, magna grips, and box, but no papers.

Picked up my new Taurus Tracker, 44 mag, on Friday, took it to the range on Saturday, in spite of the bad weather. Couldn't have the gun in the house all weekend without shooting it. First thing I have to say about the gun is, it's pretty...It's also ( by far) the loudest handgun I've ever shot. I always wear good hearing protection but even with that on the noise is very noticeable. The factory grips are good but a bit small for my large hands but I think a pair of Hogue's will take care of that problem. I also took a 22 auto and a Ruger GP 100 in 357 mag with me. I started with the 22 and worked up to 38 then heavy 357 loads. I figured working up to the 357 would help me ease into the recoil I knew was coming with the Tracker. It didn't. I have a Ruger Super Redhawk in 44 mag also but it has an 8" barrel and absorbs most of the recoil. I closed my eyes and pulled the trigger. The recoil came but I still wasn't ready for it. It's the first handgun I've fired that actually hurt to shoot. I loved it! After about 10 rounds I had to put a thicker, padded glove on my right hand to help absorb the blast. After a few rounds of getting used to it I ended up firing 30 shells through it. It's very accurate at 25 yards, once you're not afraid anymore. It really pushes back against you but it does seem like the porting helps in keeping the barrel down since it didn't flip up much, which is what it was designed to do. I'm happy with my purchase. I hear some people say "just get a 44 mag and tone down the reloads." Well, in that case, it's no longer a 44 and you may as well have saved the money and stuck with the 357. I agree it's not a gun you'd shoot woodchucks with all day but it's great for what it was designed for, a short barrelled, light, powerful trail gun. Once you get used to the recoil and all the noise, I think you'll like it, I do...

Picked up my new CZ 452 American, Left Handed, on Thursday and then Friday to Gunsmith who I talked into looking at lightening up the trigger to 2-1/2 lbs. No guarantees he will do anything, but will look at the factory adjusting trigger screw and get it as light as possible. Hopefully it will adjust down to 2-1/2 lbs. If not, can probably find someone at our club that will put a kit in it for me. Hope the gunsmith calls me Monday with positive news and be able to participate in our Monday night indoor paper practice. Paid $450.00+ tax.

Just got a .54 smoothbore flintlock muzzleloader this week... Still needs some finish work to the metal and wood but it looks like it will be a fun little gun.

Well...

The last gun I bought for ME is my 22 cal. Marlin Model 39 Century Limited....

The last gun I bought for my WIFE is HER 22 cal.Stevens Favorite Model 71 Centennial.

After shooting centerfire pistols for decades it's refreshing to find out just how much plinking fun you can have with a bulk pack of 550 rds of 22's for less than $20.00...

A pink 22 Cricket for my granddaughter. My daughter says I look manly while holding it.

Talking Glock 35

The last Gun that I bought was a Glock 35 with trigicon night sights and a Stream Light attatched to it. Got it new about 3 years ago and it never mis fires and is unbelieveable accurate. I use this gun on a daily basis and its out in the elements alot and does a great job.
