    Most gun nuts take great pride in their collect. Unfortunately over the years the glass gun cabinets which where prominently displayed in the family room or den had to be replaced with gun safes hidden in closets or special rooms far from prying eyes.

    No longer do gun nuts publicly boast of their collections or invite casual friends over to take pride in others envy. The best we can do is hide behind avatars and fetishist names and post pictures where once we would gladly let others handle our pride and joys...

    So here is my current handgun collection with hopes that others will share as well.

    Love it but I'm thinking about getting a Sig arm brace to help stabilize it. ;)

    Hey Clance... That TP9 looks like it's had the grip shortened. Those also look like non-original sights (Mepro Tru Dot perhaps?). If so, let's have a chat in PM. I recently purchased a TP45, and am considering chopping the grip to P45 length for ease of carry, and still getting a good full grip. I feel like it might be just about the ideal carry gun in that config.

    Actually everything that you see concerning the Kahr is original. I bought the pistol at a local gun shop NIB as you see it somewhere around the mid-90s. Originally Kahr offered the TP9 with the P length grip and two sight options. One was the 3 dot Novaks the other was adjustable MMCs. Of course I would have preferred the Novak's, but after purchasing this one I've never seen another. I even talk with a representative from Kahr at the NRA show this year and he had no idea that Kahr manufactured the TP9 in this configuration. He like you thought it was a aftermarket modification as far as the grip was concerned. Generally if a shop makes a modification they identity their work with some stamp on the gun, there is no others markings but Kahr's.

    I would recommended that you visit the Kahr forum to get answers to any of your questions. Just so you know I agree with you that the shorter P grip would be a far better size then the current size TP grip.

    I'll play

    I agree. I think shooters and collectors should be more "out in the open" about our hobby. The more people that see how cool collecting and shooting guns are the better.

    Since it's the handguns sub forum, handguns only. I omitted the AR pistol with Sig brace because I only ever shoot it shouldered.

    Autos first, as they are my first love.

    I'm less into Revolvers, but they keep showing up in the collection somehow:

    Before you ask, I don't have any safe queens. I have ammo (at least one box) for everything, and I shoot (at least one box through) everything I have. Guns are made for shooting, and that's [more then] half the fun of collecting.

    So dogmush, how do you like the Webley and is the larger of the two cut to accept the 45acp?

    Man Morgo, every time I see a picture of that Beretta Steel I want to pm you offering my first born in trade.;) How about a pickup truck?

    I've always thought that a Beretta Steel chambered in 10mm would be the absolute perfect sidearm. Oh well, time to come back from fantasy land.

    Only the bigger one is a Webley, and it is indeed cut for .45ACP. The smaller is an Enfield in .38 S&W.

    I like them, they are fun to shoot, and neat to see the design ideas. compared with modern service pistols they are not that great in terms of weight, trigger, and ease of use. They are what they are; pretty cool, well thought out revolvers with a lot of history.

    lol, I think the Steel I may edge out the combat as my Favourite Beretta, its certainly up there with fav handgun as well.
    Its almost hard to believe the Steel I and standard 92fs models are made by the same people, they are so different.

    My best and favourite pic :)

    Morgo, I always enjoy your acquisitions as well as your ability to photograph them. Nice job. You are the Saxon Pig of the semi-auto sub forum.

    Don't have one pic with all of them, but I'll play.

    No artistic skills with a camera here.
    19 posts with no Colt wheelguns, so.

    Colt display-30s thru 70s- representing the double action and Woodsman lines.
    I feel that putting up this display and others is as close as I can come to sharing with strangers, especially for the folks that say 'Thanks, I enjoyed seeing these'.

    Worn terrycloth gun rag backdrop for this closer photo of the pre-war Officers Model Targets.
    Top down -.38 Spec., .32 Long, and .22LR.
    The target stocks on the .22 have since been corrected with a proper, albeit non-matching, set of stocks. The pistol itself was too nice to pass on.

    Use of carpet remnant and lighting skillfully managed to hide the luster of the Colt blueing on these Officers Model Match revolvers. Top down - .38 Spec., .22 Magnum, and .22LR.
