Remington 700 SPS-V .308

I love the gun, especially with Federal Gold Medal Match (168 gr SMK)!! Scope is a Millett TRS-1 4-16x50

Groups shown were shot at 200 yards with sandbag rests front and rear for support (3 shot groups because I didn't have enough ammo for 5).

1st group measures about 1/4", 2nd group measures just over 1/2" (caliper is misplaced since the move, hope to find it soon ).....hard to beat that....

3 shots above diamond in second target photo were made by a friend during a little competition.

These 3 shots (bottom right diamond) were to get a rough sight-in at 100 yards:
There ! By golly, someone finally made a gun powerful enough for going to church, shopping for lingerie, safeguarding school crossing zones , and trick-or-treating !!

I can't remember. It was just one more.

Okay, I remember now that I gave it more thought, it was a FWB 601 air rifle. Don't ask me what I bought before it though. It is a blur.

Ortgies .32 auto for sentimental reasons and a Ruger LCR .22 simply 'cause I wanted it. Both from the same dealer on the same day at a show. It was my last blast before my status changed from semi to full time retired and my firearms fund took a big hit.
I'm not especiially glad to see you. This IS a gun in my pocket.

I bought a Century Arms WASR-10 for $ 489.00 this afternoon. I feel like I got a bargain
and I don't think there will be many battle rifles sold for under $ 500.00 at least for the
near future in light of recent events.

last gun

Last fall I bought a used S&W 629 .44 Mag. In August my wife and I were hiking in Glacier N.P. and had a close encounter with a Grizzly bear. I was instantly convinced the my .357 wasn't big enough!

Springfield Armory Loaded 1911 Stainless. Replaced the 2-piece guide rod with a stainless Wilson Combat bulletproof GI guide rod and stainless recoil spring plug. Put on an Ed Brown flat stainless MSH, and Ed Brown Match trigger. I eventually want to have the front strap and MSH checkered or stippled, and have night sights installed.
Gun Control: being able to hit what you're aiming at

Having my CCW doesn't make me paranoid, it makes me prepared.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

Portuguese M1904/39 Mauser Vergueiro Short Rifle in 8 x 57 m

It has a nice crest of King Juan Carlos.
I do not relish to feel what the men that used these old weapons felt when they saw the elephant. For the elephant has tusk and to see him is to have his tusk dig deep into your soul. You will always have a part of you that will be cold and empty.

The last one physically in my grubby hands, KEL-TEC KSG. Or for the one in progress, custom built SBR in .300 BO with suppressor. Got a few weeks to wait for this one.
