I kinda figured that I didn't want the nazis and boog-ers to be the only ones with guns right about now

That is an unfortunate reality. I remain armed for defensive purposes only.

That's the only reason I am, too.

Well, that, and it makes me feel macho.

I'm actually in the process of getting my permits to buy hand guns. For the same reasons. Jersey makes it difficult. It will only get more difficult.

Names carry a lot of weight.
How many owners of "assault" rifles plan to assault anything?
Or hunt with them, for that matter.
If they are for defense, then should their standard mode be magazines full and handy?

They're useless otherwise.

Just a club otherwise.

First we have a pair of pistols. I wonder if they could get extra breech loader cartridges? shells? whatever they're called, and keep them loaded and ready.

The Golden Rifle is it's name, and for an extensively carved and engraved 18th century rifle it's in amazing condition.

The main reason it's in good shape is it was just completed this year.

Judson Brennen has been working on it for 6 years while the buyer twiddled his thumbs.

I wonder what the price tag was?

It's pretty, and shoots straight, what more could you want?

Great stories about beautiful guns. There a little disconnect between such creativity applied to a tool with such a purpose.
Griff's link is to a webpage that has the potential for many lost hours: GigaPan.
Their front page has an example of New York City. Can you find the nude beauty on the roof top?

As an adjunct to my post in Wildlife, living next to nature (#1756, I made a unexpected and unwelcome discovery.
A while ago, I decided that it made sense to have as my nightstand weapon something a smaller and less destructive to windows, favorite geegaws and TV's (not to mention friendlies) than a .357, 12 gauge or Mini-14.
My choice was a Hi-Standard Double Nine, a well made .22 caliber, double action, nine shot revolver, already owned, and loaded with long rifle ammunition.
I decided to use the loud report from said revolver to frighten away Br'er Bear in my briar (blackberry) patch.
Said revolver proceeded to mis-fire on four out of eight shots.
This was Federal Cartridge Corporation "Spitfire" ammo, stored under the best conditions I have, dry, cool and not mishandled.
Internet inquiry and my own experimentation with the mis-fires and other rounds in the container points to faulty primer material.
I guess the rest of those are for the shitcan and I can just hope the Winchester ammo now awaiting unwelcome intruders is better.

That's disconcerting.
