    Alright, it's been awhile since I've started a thread worth reading. Time to correct that...

    Exhibit #1. Smith & Wesson K-22, '56 vintage I believe.

    On semi-permanent loan from my grandfather.
    I love using this gun for new shooters. For super-sensitive and extra-timid shooters, this gun with .22 shorts is just the ticket! :)




    BTW, please don't mind all the cat hair! :scrutiny:

    Another semi-permanent loaner. Twas also my grand-dad's. It hadn't been used in over thirty years. He couldn't remember how to take her apart and after three hours of scouring the Net I couldn't find anything about disassembly. It took a while but I got her apart and clean.


    More pics on request... ;)

    Almost done....

    Exhibit #3, Springfield Armory XD-9 Tactical.

    I absolutely love this gun though I do need to change the grip.

    One of my favorite things about this particular gun is that in function, size, weight and manual of arms, it closely resembles my dad's Government Model and my Ruger 22/45. Sometime I will do some close comparison pictures but for now this family photo will have to suffice.

    Heh, a couple more pics.

    Can anyone tell me what sort o' ammo this is? The old man brought it back from Kuwait a week ago. I have my suspicions but I wanted other opinions... :rolleyes:

    Black lubilox coated bullets in nickel cases are original Black Talons. The later Ranger Talons had brass cases and now they have regular copper colored bullets and nickel cases.

    Black Talons they are! Appearently over there they have fancy gun ranges in leu of 'gentleman's clubs'. The Kuwaiti that took dad as a guest gave him the rounds.


    Since it was before my time, what was all the hubub about the black talons?
    Was it just liberals pissing themselves in fear or was there something more to it?

    EK-

    I may be off on a bit of this, but the gist of it is:

    In the late eighties/early nineties, Winchester came out with a new line of high-performance ammo, the "Black Talon" line. IIRC, most of it was HP pistol ammo with some rifle ammo thrown in. It was specifically marketed to the SD/LE crowd for its superior "stopping power" and "energy transfer." The media buzzards glommed onto the story, labelling (libelling?) the Black Talon "Cop Killer," claiming it could pierce vests and "mushroom on impact, splitting into several bladelike sections forming a lethal buzzsaw capable of tremendous damage and killing power." The hype was so intense that Winchester limited sales to law enforcement only and finally dropped the line and replaced it with the lower-key "Ranger Talon" name, eliminating the black coating and using brass cases instead of nickel. Same round mostly, just different colors and name. You can still find them occasionally, but they're deucedly spendy, at least in the stuff I've seen.
