    Nope, we're not gonna talk about the 2nd Amendment, just the amazing machines themselves.

    So, please, share your favorites, the ones on your wishlist, the big turds you wished you'd never fired.



    My current, "Damn, I WANT this gun!" LIST:



    Taurus 24/7 OSS Tactical in .45 ACP

    [​IMG]


    Marlin Lever Action .410 Shotgun

    [​IMG]


    Marlin XL7 (haven't decided which caliber, yet)

    [​IMG]




    I'm sure something else will catch my eye...And yes, I am a serious Marlin fan.



    My trusty 1964 Marlin 336RC looks pretty much like this, 'cept with a decent scope added and a sling:

    [​IMG]




    For now, this is my "new to me" favorite pocket shooter:

    FEG MBP in .32 ACP

    Without the heavy hand of a moderator, we'll be lucky to just talk guns. As soon as the usual douches show up with their pre-programmed bias against inanimate objects, we'll spiral down the shitter.

    So, until then let's have fun. I'm a Brit rifle fan, myself....so I'll post my toys:

    How big are your hands?

    IMHO, this pales compared to the HK USP 45. When we were first allowed to switch up to .45 I stuck with my 9mm (Sig 226) because all of the 45's were single stack mags, so 8rds total (w/ 1 in the tube), and they only allowed Smith, Ruger or Sig

    When I finally got the HK, I shot it much better than the 9mm, and I got 12rd mags.



    Other guns I lust for :scratch

    a Browning Citori 525 pheasant?


    I've got an old Remington 722 in 200 Savage that I still use for deer hunting (shit, I just looked - it was made in 1948 :yikes)

    A Remington 870 wingmaster

    sold the 30/30


    um....

    Ruger Ranch rifle (cuz a mini 14 is an assault rifle)


    coupla 22's

    too tired to remeber

    The gist is, I'm pretty happy with what I got. (except for wanting the Citori)

    I mean, really, I'm hunting with a 60 yr old rifle

    Recently added, but not pictured is a Smith and Wesson M&P 40c.
    Top is Ruger single six convertible in 22LR and 22 Mag.
    Next is Taurus 627 Tracker Titanium in 357
    Next down is a Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter 44 mag in SS with the bisley grip and hammer wearing a set of lengthened Don Collins stocks in dark walnut (the Millet sight is going on the SKS soon)
    Then we have my oldest handgun, a T/C Contender with a 14 inch 7x30 Waters Hunter barrel wearign a Leupold 2x scope (soon to go on the 44 mag).

    Not pictured is my Mossberg 500 deer/turkey/goose/duck/pheasant gun. I have a few rimfire rifles, a couple centerfire rifles too.

    I love shooting the big handguns though. Nothing really as satisfying as the smack you get from a 310 grain LBT bullet leaving the muzzle pushed out by a load of H110!

    This'll always be my fav, you said machines--so it made me think of guns in terms of this:

    [​IMG]

    Which is made up of this, Rheinmetall 120mm M256 smoothbore cannon:

    [​IMG]
    which shoots, among others, this:

    additional weapons include this:

    And this the FN M240-all variants of which are among the finest pieces of such machinery in the world:

    Mmmmm. Appre-she-ai-shun.

    That is a lovely collection of SMLEs. I've always wanted one, but as we are limited on both number and type of firearms I haven't been willing to swap a 'user' for a 'collector'.

    Is this a 'what we got' or a 'what we want' thread?

    And don't forget peeps, guns are bad. :deal

    Nope, now it's the "Why people hate New Jersey Douchebags" thread. :evil

    I'm curious as to what lame, knee-jerk reaction you have to women that own firearms? "I own guns 'cause I've got small tits", perhaps?

    Also, please learn how to use an indefinite article. :deal




    In any case, the only thing I'd like to add anytime soon would be a 10mm upper for my AR. It'd be nice to bring only one calibre (for Chewie) to the range.

    Let me introduce you to a little friend of mine. The M41A Pulse Rifle is an air cooled, fully automatic, short- to mid-range combat rifle. Made of light alloy plates, it fires 10x24mm Armor Piercing Caseless Rounds from a 100 round U-bend magazine in either semi automatic, four-round burst, or fully automatic rates of fire. The M41A is usually underloaded to 95% capacity to avoid jamming. The pulse rifle has a battery-powered digital display that displays the number of rounds left in the magazine. With a retractable stock and an underslung 30 mm PN grenade launcher, this weapon can be used as a carbine and an assault rifle.

    Hey Bill check it out. You made my sig-line.

    Now go roll a 20 sided die and see if you can cast a spell of love so you can get some at the convention.
