    I see quite a few threads asking about how to obtain a C&R license and what benefits it provides, etc. But there should be a stern warning regarding the abuse of the C&R issued to anyone contemplating one. You might go hog wild.

    Pictured are the acquisitions I made over the summer with my C&R. These are just the S&Ws, mind you. Some are going to the range tomorrow as I haven't gone since spring and I have a large number of unfired guns. Horrors!

    In back from left to right are a 1954 Highway Patrolman and a pair of 1950 Target Models.

    In front are a Triple Lock and a 1951 Combat Masterpiece (note the transitional hammer).

    Hey man,

    Don't hold us accountable if you can't figure out what kind of crack C&R firearms can become. We're too busy getting our fix to worry about you. :cuss:

    Not bad for a summer's worth of effort. Now that it's winter, you ought to be able to concentrate on the task with undivided attention.

    My G/F keeps joking about changing her perfume to Cordite or Hoppes #9. She said there seems to be a corellation (sp?) between a day practicing shooting animals and acting like one at night. ;)

    Anyone else notice something like this in their relationships?

    BTW, I seem to have run out of room in my safes. Do you think there's a company out there that has bulk discounts??? ;)

    Where do you all get your C&R handguns? Can anyone recommend an online retailer? I got my C&R in the spring and haven't used it yet.

    C&R Crack of the gun world

    Berek +1, ROTFLMAO


    Really it doesn't even take a C&R to act like a crack addict, just browse through the WTS section here on THR and you can drop A LOT of coin...been a member less than a year and have bought and sold a good bit (bought more than sold!)

    EddieCoyle- Try GunBroker.com or AuctionArms.com or GunsAmerica.com. Most gun-related Internet discussion forums (Smith-WessonForum.com, TheFiringLine.com, GunBroker.com, etc) also have classifieds you can peruse.

    My wife once commented that for the first three years she knew me she thought Hoppes #9 was my personal fragrance.
