    New Springfield Loaded

    Ok, so this is the 4th Springfield Loaded I bought this year. The 1st was a CA compliant model which is at auction now. It needed a sight replacement (which Springfield did) but shot beautifully. The 2nd is currently in my collection. Needed the engraving sanded down where the disconnector...

    Dan Wesson Pointman 7

    Finally got me a Dan Wesson Pointman 7-45. Not exactly the model I wanted (Pointman 45) but its what was available for a price I was willing to pay. I am sure I will be happy with it none the less. Paid for, now we wait... Stock picture:

    Kimber Rapide Black Ice in 9mm

    I just bought a Kimber Rapide Black Ice in 9mm a few minutes ago. This one was lightly used. The pics from the seller are below. $1350 after taxes and shipping. I could have bought a new Scorpius for $1400 but part of the equation was that the Rapide "Black Ice" is no longer in production. Don't...

    1911 Range day

    Little brother and I just had an afternoon of 1911 shooting. He is rebuilding his gun collection too. This range day started with him wanting to look at my S&W 1911. Told him I thought about getting rid of it and i told him to come out any shoot it before he decided he wanted it. In the course...

    Making a change…

    Well, I never thought I’d do it but my Springfield collection is gone. I took 26 guns to auction, my polymer Springfields didn’t make the cut. I kept my 3 Springfield 1911s and my stainless 911. Springfield still remains my favorite manufacturer of polymer pistols, I am just switching to all...

    Metro Arms Hard Chrome 1911 in 10mm

    Decided to create a new thread for this one. The Metro Arms American Classic II, 10mm, in hard chrome. I tested 3 Kimber Stainless II’s in 10mm in the previous thread. None I would consider were “ready to go out of the box”. One needed, and still is in, an extended breakin. By extended, I mean...

    Kimber and Springfield 1911s…

    It’s inevitable that one day I’d compare a Springfield to a Kimber. I did not know it was going to cause me to buy several… although, I suspect I would have anyway. In January I ordered my first Kimber Stainless II in 10mm. The only real complaints I had were that the slide rails had been bead...

    My Siberians

    I’m sure there are lots of dog lovers in here so I’m sharing some of mine. All my dogs are pure bred Siberian Huskies. Up until January, every animal on my ranch was a rescue (horses and dogs). One of my female Huskies had a few pups back in January. Things got a little bit crazy after that. We...

    Taurus 856 Defender 3” 38 +P

    Let me first say, in general, I don't care for snubbies. Don’t much care for Taurus. I hate air weights. The shortest barrel revolver I owned before this is 5.5”. It’s relatively rare to see a full stainless frame in a compact revolver these days. I saw this one cheap online. Picked it up...

    Going to be an AR weekend…

    Picked up 3 more ARs in 5.56. Outfield with new magpul stocks and hand guards, red dots and mbus sights. Unfortunately, the DPMS I had to order an A2 front sight for low rise gas block so the two DPMS have A2 front sights (one is still coming) 3 on the left are new, 3 on the right I already...

    I’ve seen it all now…

    From the City of Calera Police Department Facebook page… “This afternoon two Calera officers noticed a person acting suspiciously in a neighborhood. When approached, the person ran and was later found at a local gas station. The suspect, from Chilton County, had a concealed firearm and is a...
