    I know Tamara is ''up there'' with a collection (biggest it seems on THR!) but ... took all the gear out of the safe shelves to tidy and clean (well, the handguns) .... and thought I'd lay em out (or is that ''fondle'' )..... never tried that before.

    One or two real tacky pieces didn't make it onto the blanket but .... anyways, seein as we like to look at each other's pieces .. here y'are.

    Hey, mine's only middlin' large compared to some of the real gun nuts around here. :uhoh:

    Neat spread! Is that a .455 Webley?

    Here's my most recent pic, although it's a little out of date...

    Looks good to me Tams ............ VERY good! Remember that pic which is why I commented!:p

    The .455 .. yep, a Webley MkVI ....... rebuilt by me and re blued ..... tho only a cold blue. Not a bad specimen except for the locking lever spring which was a replacement from Brownells ....... and nowhere near like the original.

    I even spent ages on CAD drawing up old and new . hoping they'd find a way to make the ''proper one'' ... but no ... not much response.

    I may see if i can post a pic of the dwg actually and see what people think.

    Tamara, if I get a divorce, will you marry me? Seriously, nice collection. Is that a Pepper Box on the bottom row? What can you tell me about it? Thanks.

    Just so you all know...Tams got the legal minimum requirement for citizenship, so ya'll best get busy and aquire more.

    Oh, and P95Carry...you do realize your citizenship is probationary until you get some form of 1911??:D

    I myself do regretfully admit that I do not yet have full citizenship status either.:(

    Clown714 ......... haha ...... wondered who would come up with that one ......... Tams of course does not have that problem. ;) :p I do greatly like my P97, which fills that ''45 acp'' gap and is carry piece now.

    Honest answer? ..........much as I have handled and shot em .... just don't feel the need. Having said that .... if one were to, shall we say ''crop up'' .. who knows, things might change!!:evil: :p

    Is that little silver one a .22, p95? What make? If it's the gun I think it is, I've been trying to remember who makes it for about a month. ;)

    The small semi slightly left of center? That is a Phoenix Arms HP-22 ..... I got that NIB and, the version that comes with an optional swappable 5" barrel.

    It is very much down there in the ''budget gun'' category .... and I guess it is for most part just a plinker but .. it is extremely concealable, if a tad heavy for its size - now and again it has been about all I could manage to carry, tho a rimfire sure ain't my real choice!.

    Providing I pay attention to cleaning and avoid excessive crud build-up it is incredibly reliable, and a lot of fun! With the longer barrel, it is remarkably accurate. It is IMO one of those cheapie guns that does represent pretty value....... whole deal was IIRC around $160.

    Phoenix arms, that's it! I should have remembered that. I was looking at one of those a while ago and was quite fond of the aesthetics, if nothing else. I'm glad to hear it's a good plinker - I wouldn't feel safe carrying a .22 for self defense.

    Those pix remind me somewhat of the Colt display they made around the time of the US Centennial. A big wheel of guns surrounded by more guns, all in a handsome walnut cabinet. :eek:

    OK, I pick far right row, third from the bottom. This is a giveaway, right?

    I've had questions about Tamara's collection, seems as good of a time as any. Why only two sub-compact glocks and what caliber are they? Glocks don't exactly blow my skirt up with charisma, but Glock 17/19 is a very fine weapon. It seems odd that a 17 or 19 didn't sneak in there somewhere in a collection that large. How many of those are .22s? With that many guns, how do you find time to shoot them? How long and HOW did that collection get assembled? Has it always leaned toward revolvers?

    Man, I've been to gun shows where there were fewer guns!

    I stand...how shall I put it...in awe.

    MJRW,

    Those are a G29 and a G30.

    The G29 is gone, as are both SIGs, the BDM, the longer-barrelled 625 (a 625-4), and the Old Model Single Six (that's the long-barrelled one...)

    Joining the show since then are four more 1911's, a 27, a 37, a 65, a 544, a 581, a 5" 625-2, and a 3" 625-7. I think that's all of it. So far... :uhoh:

    As you can tell, the collection is moving towards a point where, except for a few sentimental (G30) or special-use pieces (Jetfire), it will be all 1911's and S&W revolvers.

    Only two left: the Bearcat and that adjustable-sighted 2" RB Model 34. Also a Ciener .22 conversion for the 1911's.

    Skunk,

    Why, yes, that black Centennial is an Airweight... :D

    *Ow!* Stop hitting me! I'm sorry! ;)
