    I think the same thing has been said about riding motorcycles. :D Bling that bike out till it cost five time what a new one does or just ride it and become a better rider. Choice is yours. :deal

    Sweet. You'll enjoy it. I got one for my girlfriend on Mother's Day, only hers doesn't have the octagonal barrel, and she loves it.

    I ordered some new grips from Alumagrip and sent them out for engraving. This is a Springfield EMP .40

    Sweet! How do you like the EMP? I have one in 9x19, bought it about 4 years back, haven't shot it a huge amount, but probably have 700 rounds through it, and it's been perfectly reliable and accurate and pleasant to shoot.

    A CCW BBQ gun!! Sort of an oxymoron, but I like it!! :lol3

    I've considered getting some stag/antler grips for mine. I have an old SA 1911 from the early 90s which I pimped some years ago, and like the look. I used this gun in competition a fair bit, it has been worked on some although some of the work I did myself (like cutting the dovetails by hand with a file for the front and rear sights, a chore I'll never undertake again prior to Hell icing over) and it's a good shooter:

    I always take option A on that one.
    Which explains why I have a new daniel defense AR coming and the RRA one in the safe still only has 50 rounds through it. :lol3

    I love a henry, now go out and get some Aguila .22 super colibri rounds for it, they are not much louder than a finger snap and travel 500fps.

    They really are not recomended for barrels longer than 15 inches but I shoot them out of henry and Marlin 39a all the time with no problem.

    you can shoot rabbits in your back yard all day long and your neighbors will know nothing about it.

    WTF? 1200$ for a Winchester 30:30? Okay so I'm looking for a good 1911 without breaking the bank. I'm in Canada so some aren't available to me. Ideas? My budget is about a K. Thanks

    I think the cheapest option for a lever 30-30 is the Mossberg 464, although for a little more I'd go for a Marlin 336.

    Marlin 336 all the way. I'm not personally all that fond of the 30-30 round, but it has taken more deer than any other cartridge over the past 100+ years.

    Save a few bucks and get A Springfield TRP or Dan Wesson.

    Haven't checked in here in a little while, I've got a question for the mil-surp guys. Looking at a no 4 mk1 Enfield made by Savage, marked US Property. Is this any more or less desirable than a Brit or Aussie built example? And in good condition, what's a good price range?:ear Thanks in advance.
