    Hey guys. I don't know anyone who appreciates guns personally. No one in my family or my friends do. I am looking for some feedback on a few in my collection. Here is a pic of some of my favorites. Included in this pic: Remington 12 ga. and 20 ga., Ruger 44 magnum carbine, Colt LE6920 AR15, Century Arms WASR10 AK47, Kahr CW9 9mm, Springfield XD45, Smith and Wesson .357 Magnum revolver, Three NAA .22 magnum mini revolvers, I'm not sure what the 2 handguns on the right are because I inherited them. Anyone know?:cool:

    Nice collection, but don't expect me to tote all that during SHTF, I'll take a few off your hands. :)

    Oh, crap, I almost forgot, welcome to The High Road. :)

    sonogy47,
    Welcome to THR!

    I think I would sell those NAA minis and get some more ammo! If you are expecting bad times, you'd be better-off with more long gun ammo and shotshells than .22mags!

    So why do you have 3 NAAs?

    That's a whole lot to carry if SHTF, but I guess if the zombies come your have plenty for your friends to shoot when they come to you for help ;)

    Thanks for the feedback

    Thanks for the feedback guys. The reason I have 3 mini revolvers is because I inherited one and I mistakenly bought 2 of them thinking they would be good carry guns for my wife and me. Turns out that my wife will not touch a gun, and I figured out that I can't hit anything with them at all. You must need to be an expert to shoot those minis. I figure I'll trade them if times get desperate. Now I'm going to work on upgrades for my Colt AR.

    Here's a pic of the rest of my collection. I inherited a lot of these guns. So I'm not sure what a few of them are.

    Damn dude, now your just braggin!!!!!! Very nice collection, but you need to get some "black". And you know those muskets you got there is just SCREAMING for some camo paint (or camo wrap). :)

    My collection is, hold on, I might need to go count them, hold on..........., ok, I'm back after a few seconds and I have a great number of.....drumroll please..... 5 guns!!!! A S&W .38+P revolver, Mossberg 16ga. semi-auto shotgun, NEF .410, Remington Model 34 .22, and my one modern gun, a Remington 700.

    BTW, PM me if you need someone to take them off your hand. I will adopt them and place them in a VERY loving home. :)

    You should get some good oil on some of those. I use mobile 1.
    The bolt action looks like a 1903 springfield. If you look up the serial number, you can find out they year of manufacturer. some of those can be worth a little money. Although the stock has been altered, you can find original stocks. If your willing to share some info. quite a few of the folks on here could tell you more than you want to know.

    Very nice, but when ammo prices drop some more, as CWL said, you need a good bit more.

    After the Congressional elections in 1 1/2 years, something could quickly change, and our President will have a much better idea about his re-election chances, and whether he and the rest can survive any risky gun legislation (by then maybe little to lose, politically?).
    Somebody at Cabinet or Senate level has just exerted 'hidden pressure', which is forcing the DoD to destroy their .223 cases, which had been sold to the civilian market...

    Wow sonogy....Lots of guns for trouble :scrutiny:

    I only keep two for SHTF times(w/ a stock of ammo for them). A Smith & Wesson M&P9 9mm as my side arm and a Kel-Tec SU-16A .223/5.56 for my long gun.

    The rest of my firearms are .22, these are what I shoot 95% of the time when I go to the range.

    The revolver on the bottom right is probably an old Smith & Wesson Military & Police hand ejector model.

    You can learn more about it from the patent dates engraved on the barrel and the serial number engraved on the bottom of the butt strap, plus there may be some markings on the back of the butt strap that some Smith & Wesson collectors could tell you about.

    What is the caliber? What is the most recent patent date you can find on the barrel? Don't use anything but standard loads on these old revolvers as they were not designed for anything more powerful. I am guessing this one dates back to the early 1900's.

    It looks like you have a s&w model 66 4 inch and a old s&w maybe in 32 or 38. Look on the inside where the cylinder swings out. The front part that holds the cylinder is call a crane. On the frame that the crane covers is where the model is stamped. On the old black one, tell us was cartridge it uses. That will be stamped on one side of the barrel. Post here and we can help identification. Hold on to all of them. Great inheritance!!

    Take some more pictures on the long guns and have more lights on, the shadow to the rear of the pool table makes identification difficult.

    the one that is all rusted is a Springfield 1873 trapdoor, 45/70. clean that one up and get some trapdoor loads for it.

    Keep your AR simple. That's all I have to say. I "upgraded" my AR and now I don't like it because it is too heavy. Keep it light and simple. You don't need all that crap on it anyway. I have it all and it stinks.

    I agree about having too much crap on an AR, but a good red dot and BUIS, and maybe a light is all I think one might need.
