About the gun in comment #6131 by "Tempest 455", is that one of the types used by military snipers, possibly used by the late Chris Kyle (SEAL) in Iraq?

It reminds me of one the guns he described in "American Sniper", employed to stop the foreign insurgents who maneuvered to attack our soldiers and Marines.

"Arthur-itis" is finally catching up with me, and it was making it difficult to load and unload my 1975 Ruger .357 Blackhawk. Swinging by my LGS, I spotted a new Ruger GP100 begging to be taken home. So, a trade and a little cash made me a happy feller once again.

It has since been modded with lighter springs, and a fiber optic front sight.
A hoot to shoot it is.

I traded for a Navy Arms Martini-Greener, .45-70. Having fun turning it into a silhouette gun!
My newest gun, however, is one I made, my Pocket Rifle, an underhammer muzzle loader in .36.

Bought - Sporterized 1891 Argentine Mauser - $75

Filling out the winning ticket in the shops Anniversary Sale raffle and also taking home a Ruger 10/22 Takedown door prize - priceless

Enjoying both of them at the range yesterday - even better

In the Never - Ending Quest to fill up all the space in my house...

I found this at a local. I've got Rugers and such, but this one is built on the original lines, no transfer bar and a hammer mounted safety. Some things are just better in the early incarnations.

It is in .45 Colt. A non-maximum amount of Power Pistol pushes a 255 Lead SWC at roughly 760 f/s. Not a magnum, but quite adequate for most uses. All the chambers run pretty close to the same velocity and accuracy is sufficient (one handed at 25 yards runs about the size of the 8 ring of a Timed/Rapid fire target.)

I'm going to put up some loads with Pyrodex I have lurking in the basement and see how that works. I'll post a full report on my blog, listed in my signature line.

I was down in Columbus, Ohio this weekend enjoying family. One goal was to get to Cabela's and check out ammunition supplies. My wife had hoped to pick up some sheepskin slippers as Christmas gifts. So Saturday afternoon My wife and I as well as my brother went to Cabela's. Looked at assorted guns and she went to apparel. My plan was ammunition and reloading supplies. Wandered into the Gun Cave and saw a few nice things. Then I saw a S&W Model 27-2. The presentation box was fair but the revolver about mint. I have a weakness for these older quality revolvers.

Never made it to ammunition and reloading supplies so have no clue what they had.

Oh yeah, the winter apparel as to sheep skin slippers wasn't in the store yet.

Ironic that the FA is on a "learning about money" placemat...the cost keeps them out of my hands..:-)

I bought an NRA Ruger LC9...as I gave my standard LC9 to a friend for his 50 B-day.

I am still on a list for a S&W 642...the dealer I use has been out of them for a while with no ETA....

Just picked up a Springfield XDS in .45ACP, a nice two tone silver above black gun that has fulfilled a desire for a small .45 caliber semiauto I've wanted for some time.

New to me. Picked up today. S&W 5906.

Price $225, $75 below asking price. Came with a Bianchi nylon fitted holster which caused some shiny spots on slide at rear sight, reason for the price.

The other day I picked up a Springfield XDS in .45ACP. Well, today I picked up a new toy; not a self defense gun. I went to a gunshow up in Huntsville Alabama and found a Uberti repro of the 1871 Colt Open Top. This one in .45 Schofield. That is not the caliber the original was made in, but Uberti has to make compromises because that original caliber is not made any longer. .45 Schofield is not too far off powerwise.
One nice thing is the color case hardening on this gun is better than what Uberti guns usually have. The date code indicates a 2012 manufacture date so maybe Uberti is improving the quality of the case-hardening.
