Those are just my more recent acquisitions. I need to get some decent photos of my older stuff.

I'm a huge Sig & Benelli fan. I have an older S&W 9mm, back before they joined in the polymer wars. I'm just not into polymer pistols. Or all the ridiculous "features" they've been adding lately. I do have a gen 1 LCP, but I don't shoot it very often. It's convenient for concealed carry in the summer. But more often than not, I'd just rather open carry a larger pistol.

Right now at the top my wishlist is a Sig M11A1, a Benelli Montefeltro & an AR I'm going to build myself. Of course there's the other random stuff that I keep an eye out for - a Python, a Garand, an M1 carbine...

The S&W & the LCP

Funny, my boss said the same thing. Only it was after I showed him I can pull off unsupported headshots with both a 9mm & a .40 at 60 meters. Plus I was making golf balls disappear at 100 meters with the AR without optics.

All of my friends growing up got a .410 shotgun. My grandfather, USMC, gave me a rifle when I turned 7 & I've been shooting precision ever since. Don't get me wrong, I shoot amateur trap every week & I'm going to start competing next year, but there's just something about long range tack drivers. I really want an MRAD in .338 Lapua to start pushing the super long range shots out past 1000 meters.

You're going to have to bring something else to the table though. I've been cooking commercially for almost 20 years. How are you on a tricycle? :D

My brother in law recently took me out to fire a handgun for the first time at a Gander Mountain Store in Florida. I thought I was doing well until one of the store employees told me that if I continue to hit the steel bracket that holds the target I would have to leave. I lowered my shots after that and did not hit the bracket again. Hitting your target is not as easy as it looks on TV. :oops:

Sexy as hell. :nutters: :unicornrainbow:



I don't have any guns with me at the moment, I've a .22 magnum rifle that lives at my folk's place that I dropped many the woodchuck with growing up. My dad had a couple fun old guns though, one was a semiautomatic .22 rifle... also fun for woodchuck hunting, wait till they are away from the burrow, squeeze one off and strafe them as they run for cover. His deer rifle was a Krag-Jorgenson, which were developed in the late 1800s, and has a unique magazine where you dump them in a box on the right and they feed underneath to load from the left.

Not too shabby on the tricycle, but nude rollerskating is really my new thing! :asshat:

Suppressors were finally legalized here in MN. I'm awaiting my paperwork so I can finish my .300 AAC suppressed AR build :pop
