I bought a Springfield 1903 (NRA rifle from 1912, in near mint condition), a Savage 93 in .22WMR, and a Rock Island Armory 1911 Tactical .45ACP ... all in the early part of 2012, just months before I lost my aerospace job. Had the summer off (not by design), and shot the dickens out of the Springfield while testing new handloads. Finally shot the .45 for the first time this past weekend, testing a new handload as well.

Still haven't shot the Savage ...

Thank You.

I had the pellet gun copy years ago (S & W 78G). I accidentally dropped it off my deck & broke it . It had the same weight and ergonomics as the 41. Very comfortable in the hand.

I can't wait to shoot the 41.

I purchased a Smith & Wesson M&P9c. This will act as my conceal carry gun.

Hueyville, love your bike, is it the new Ultra? I bought my Road King a month before that color came out, man I like it. Great rifle also, I just added a G30 to my small collection.

John486, the bike is actually a 1978 flh I did a restomod on a few years ago. Restoring and modifying motorcycles is another of my hobbies. Doing a ground up '88 Softail right now. Told the wife I was buying the lathe for bikes but then she caught me chucking rifle barrels in it so she isn't sure how much money I am going through in materials in my machine shop.

My last purchase was a very nice little SAR B6P Compact. I had never seen one before I saw it through the glass, it just called to me. I love its look, feel, and now that its broken in it is a great shooter.

I also saw this very nice little CZ clone (like a very compact CZ 75) in .380 acp but I didn't have the cash on hand and I didn't recognize the brand. My wife really liked it so I'm going to try and find out what it was and do some research on it, and it might be my next purchase.

Last one purchased, Uberti 1860 Army. Way to get around the recent ammo shortage/price increase, at least thats what I told my beloved wife to expain the purchase.


The one before that, which I hadda send back for repairs, got back a week or so afore the C n' B, made it seem as though I got two new guns in one month.
Cimarron Thunderer, .45 Colt, 3.5" barrel. Old school NY reload for the 5.5" Model P.
Please forgive the messy status of my desk. Prepping to move. Gonna have an office and a workshop in my new abode. Can't wait.

Thanks, I am not sure why my last purchases have been replicas of 19th century tech. I am not a Cowboy Action shooter, though I am 'parently set up to do so. I have the pictured Thunderer, a Model P 5.5", also in .45 Colt, and a Rossi '92 in the aforementioned .45. I believe my coach gun would be disqualified, as it is 20 ga instead of 12.. I did have an Uberti in .357, but gave it to my pops for Xmas. On the more modern side, I do have ye olde M1 Garand, paired with a Colt's Government, 2011 manufacture, but still. On the even more modern, S&W M&P 15T, and a Glock 19. One day I will attempt to take some photos with period approximate accessories. Done ramblin', gonna try and get some sleep. Thanks again.

The top gun is a DPMS Tac-20 in .308 that I picked up the other day. The bottom gun is a Glock compact .45. Hopefully going to shoot the DPMS for the first time tomorrow.
