I'm absolutely jealous,they are beautiful revolvers.
Welp. Finally came to terms with the fact that I'm not going to carry the Walther PPQ anymore outside of exceptional circumstances (my primary carry piece is a S&W Bodyguard 380 these days). As such, it's been fully relegated to home defense duty. I had already gotten the Talon grips, Trijicon HD night sights (orange front post), and a 17-round magazine for it. But I couldn't really forego a decent light on something I'd be using for HD, so I shelled out for a Streamlight TLR-1 HL. Managed to get a good fit using the SIG P320 rail key adapter of all things. Naturally the first thing I did was shine it at a mirror and blind myself for a good 15 minutes.
800 lumens is no joke. I can see why cops have been using these on their duty guns for years.
It does make the "it just gives the bad guys a target" critique a little less weight. A general direction sure, but it's hard to even look at a good, bright, light, let alone aim.
What's your opinion on the strobe feature for tactical lights?
Don't really have one not have I used one. I mean, a few of my lights have them but activating it is more complicated and I kinda stick with KISS when I can.
Here are a couple of my garage projects. The top gun started out as a stainless 6" barrel Astra .44 magnum. The other a S&W model 19-6, 4" barrel. I changed out the barrels and converted the frames to round butt.
Weigand Street Fighter 357
Back when I was stupid for ported barrels, in the 90’s
Another TP themed pic:
Python Hunter from the 80s. I believe unfired, except for factory testing.
I have the Zero Halliburton case and accessories, but all of the foam disintegrated ruining the accessories. Fortunately the gun was stored separately in the safe.
Another MN mouse gun, made, purchased and only owned in Minnesota.

Kind of on a whatever is cheap kick lately. Paid less than $1700 for all of these last month.
Colt Whitetailer from the 80s. A cheaper alternative to the Python Hunter.
note backup iron sights on top of scope
Thats pretty wild, never seen one before! Too cool, bro!
I hope you don't get confused and point that nice piece in the wrong direction
My latest little Bauer .25 ACP I picked up and refurbished...
Rohrbaugh R9- no sights
My largest and smallest vintage full stainless semi-auto pistols.
Excel Arms Accelerator 22 Mag
I found a 1988 NYCPD DAO Speed Six 3" 38spl in January and a 1980 2.75" SS 357 in March. They're wearing more comfortable new shoes now, though not as pleasing to the eye.
High Standard DM-101
My favorites. That I own at least.
