    adopted an old warhorse today. Original owner is thinning his herd and needed to sell off a few things.
    Gave her a home, the old girl needed one for sure. H&R M1 Garand, with all the goodies. Only non original part/not correct matching part is the rear windage knob (Springfield one) and the buttstock side sling swivel installed while she was deployed with the Greek Army.

    Old 60's corncob 870 in 95%+ shape. Put a new Wingmasterset of wood on it and a v.r. skeet barrel and will have some fun with doves and fall combo league.

    My old timer, the oldest handgun I own; 1949 S&W Military &Police .38 Special, 5-screw, 5” barrel. Purchased July 10 at the local gunshow. I have two long guns older than this, 1943 and 1937. I am a shooter, no safe queens. I put a few rounds through it to verify function and sight regulation (dandy!). It’s fun to fondle a gun in nearly new condition that was made when I was 5 years old. :)

    Last Thursday (22nd July AD 2021) a friend of mine called to inform me of a 'old' .32 ACP pistol in the display at a shop in the next town. He knows I collect .32 ACP (7.65mm browning) pistols. As he called me to late to make the run, I went up the following day (Friday) and looked. The pistol in question was there, but it was a post WW2 pistol, made in Czechoslovakia (then communist) and made by essentially the same manufacturing plant that morphed into CZ after the demise of communism. That makes the pistol too new for me.
    However, in the same 'used' gun case was a revolver that caught my eye. A two inch barreled M&P with a pinned barrel and stocks with diamonds around the stock screw holes. Looking at it, it is a model 10-5 revolver with spots of surface rust and as filthy as - fill in the blank. So I bought it and took it home.
    Some penetrating oil and very fine steel wool took off the rust, leaving not bare metal, but 'blotches' in the blueing. Cleaning removed somewhere between 17 grains and a couple acres of dust and concealed oil.
    It is a fine looking old revolver. The blemishes in the few places in the blueing are not hard to see, but not as obvious as some. There appears to be no holster wear around the muzzle and leading edge of the cylinder, just the blemishes on the top of the barrel and top strap. Leads me to believe it was probably left in bureau drawer most of its life.

    Good old reliable sidearm.

    And I thought I quit collecting Smith revolvers...

    SAR9. Got it brand new for $300. The holster is a Bravo holster made for a M&P 4" - 4.5", fits like a glove.

    The last gun I bought was a few years ago. A Colt Cobra made in 1964. I felt a pocket piece was needed. Colt Cobra_edited-1.jpg

    Pins holding trigger got loose and bolt hit safety mechanism and force it in frame - its solved now and it was kinda my fault. There is mechanism to lock pins in place and it came in unlocked position, i did think i locked it, but... i wrote it in topic here

    I've already posted this in the black powder subforum but might as well post it here also for those who don't visit that area.

    Recently acquired US model 1841 "Mississippi" .54 cal percussion rifle with an 1848 lock date--made by the contract firm of Robbins & Lawrence--still in shooting condition. First used in combat by the 1st regiment of Mississippi Rifles--a volunteer unit led by Jefferson Davis in the Mexican-American war (1846-1848) They were instrumental in stopping the Mexican assault at the battle of Buena Vista and became heroes of the war. This particular example would have not been produced in time for any use in that war but I couldn't resist dressing it up with period correct white buff leather. Shown with a reproduction white buff sling and rifleman's pouch/flask set up along with a wooden cask canteen in common use at the time. The Mississippi volunteers' uniforms consisted of bright red overshirts and wide-brimmed straw hats. Since the rifles had no provision for a bayonet when originally issued, the boys from Mississippi were also equipped with large Bowie knives.

    With the adoption of the .58 cal Minie ball in 1855, many of these were converted to that caliber while also having improved sights added plus various provisions to mount a bayonet--thus these rifles saw a lot of use early on in the ACW--especially in the South.


    Cheers

    Press Release: H&K Announces Rebranding Their Guns As Lays Potato Chips Because Nobody Can Have Just One!

    While I was familiar with Sig “Signess”, I underestimated the draw of H&K’s. Today I brought home an SP5 (I think that’s my fifth H&K in a row). Fortunately the accessories were already here, so she’s updated and ready to go!
