OK
Just to share a few visuals..
Here is the Ruger 44 Magnum John Wayne Blackhawk.


 
And the Italian R I E "Yellow Rose"  Gold-Plated 22/22mag

An odd gun caught my eye. A Charter Arms Explorer II  22 semi-auto. it reminds me of my old Mauser Broomhandle...for $100 I grabbed it.

Then comes the "rest of the stuff" Several 22's-38's-44 Spl- and 5 shotguns and a Ruger 10-22. Here's some of that stuff-

Al, the charter arms is probably a real POS! It is 1 of only 2 guns I've ever sold. Jam-O-Matic. Otherwise a very nice haul.
 
Gun auctions around here you'll see used stuff going for more than new. I'm talking about stuff still being made.

Yeah Mike, that happens here too. The auction in May I attended was pretty much that way. Most of the guns I bought were/are new in the box. I got some very good deals in that one...coming home with 9 that I described earlier. This time I got 5 shotguns and a 22 rifle, and 11 handguns for the same money spent at the other. The crowd AND the bidding were a whole different level at this one...I really was surprised.  I could have purchased another dozen items, if I had pushed a little, as they went "cheap". But I caught myself and put on the brakes, despite what you guys are saying right now about 17 guns not being much of a 'slowdown'!!!

Mike S and MH, I received the formal appraisal back from the service I contracted with to determine the history of the Ruger BlackHawk I posted recently here. While I know this will disappoint you guys, Janet and I were thrilled to learn that this is indeed an aftermarket comemorative revolver with an estimated maket value between $1800 and $2000.  I am also paying Ruger for a history of this particular revolver, and will establish a sale price after getting the second appraisal completed.  This could be a real 'treasure'  ! Needless to say Janet is pleased with my purchase.

Guys,
I do have the S&W Model 22A pistol up for sale on the usual gun-websites, but meantime I am learning A LOT about the quality of this pistol. Three of us have fired the gun, using Spinner targets at 30-35 yards, and water bottles (half-liter) at between 40 and 50 yards. The gun shoots very well. Gettin 8 hits out of a 10 round magazine on the first try with this weapon is a pretty good result for a shaky old guy...and Janet has not done any pistol firing before, so the whole concept was new to her.  Anyway, I am very impressed with the Smith and it's results.  I did add a Red-Dot sight , but haven't had the time to zero it yet.
Here it is, looking very "Star Wars's-ish" if I do say so myself. Performance review coming.

For 5 years and 4 months this thread has gone along nicely. I was surprised it didn't go to Hell in the 1st month, or less.
So here is my suggestion. If you don't like firearms, then stay the Hell outta here. You all know that political discussion isn't allowed on this board. Contrary to some opinions WE the Mods try to keep it fair. But I think we all know what opinions are like, everyone has one of those as well.
 
DO NOT discuss the politics of firearms here. This is not the forum for that. There are numerous web forums for you to do that on. Not here.
 
Once again; If you don't like firearms, then stay the Hell outta here.

I endorse Mike's statement 100%. We really have tried to keep the political position statements out of this discussion.  It is difficult to talk about the differences in the various State's laws and regulations dealing with firearms, without 'editorializing' an opinion about those rules, but it is important to do just that.
  Keep the discussion focused on the topic, and not the political future, and the thread will continue to share info between those who care about the 'sport' (or hobby).
  If you want to be a political activist and voice your opinions regarding the 2nd amendment or firearms in any political context, go find a forum to do that. Leave this one alone.

Howdy, brothers! Haven't been around these parts in a while since I took a  job with a hot dog company in Chicago, four years back. My latest score is a Remington 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge riot gun, circa 1954, factory refinished.

The Marines didn't let me keep my favorite.......a 106. Oh, I know the new stuff is more useful in combat, and I'm glad that today's Marines have the good stuff, but what a sense of satisfaction to get an exact hit on a target too far away to see with the naked eye. It used a 4 part system. 1. scope the target 2. fire a 50 cal spotting round 3. repeat and adjust as needed to get exact sighting 4. Fire the 106. It was a crew served weapon, but 1 guy could run it very well unless it needed to be moved. Sgt Reckless, a great Marine hero (and a horse), carried an earlier, smaller model in Korea.

One of the Military supply store chains has one of those tracked vehicles with a 6 pack of the 105/106mm Recoiless Rifles mounted on it. I believe it is called the "Ontos" or something that sounds like that. I saw a demo of that being fired during my BCT at Ft Ord in 1960, Alot of firepower stuck on a jeep-sized track !! 
   I always wondered why they called those guns "Recoiless Rifles"?

I really like my Saiga 12, but I limit my mags to the factory 5 rounders for ease of carry and movement. I have a couple of 10 and 12 round stick mags but they seem so long and heavy that the whole balance of the gun is altered. I picked up a loaded drum one time and set it down again...It was very heavy (to me) and I don't think I would like to go walking in the woods with one on my gun.  It would  be fun to talk to a game warden with a drum full of slugs on my Saiga !!!

..... 
  I always wondered why they called those guns "Recoiless Rifles"?

Because there is no recoil. A back-blast out the back of the rifle counteracts the recoil from the bullet going out the front. That is why it is so light. The "bullet" is actually 1mm larger than a 105 howitzer round, but because there is no recoil it was mounted on a jeep, or a "mule" (an ATV type mini truck with an air cooled gas engine), or man carried by just a few people. The back-blast zone was very dangerous. In a demonstration I saw a 55gal can filled with water blown hundreds of feet by the backblast. An absolute blast to fire too.......
 
The Ontos, (tank killer) carried 6 of them. It was a very lightly built "tank" that was easily killed itself. The idea was to fire and scoot (the backblast gave away the location). The VC didn't have many tanks to kill, but they quickly figured out how to kill the Ontos. The 106 stayed around long after the Ontos system was scrapped.
 
As for shooting the 106.........If you like plinking beer cans with a 22 at 100 yards, think how great it would be to plink at 1000 yards or more. More fun than anything (legal) that I can think of......

Used the Knob Creek Gun Ranges this morning to set, align, and then do a zeroing exercise for the scope-sights on the three rifles we will be taking a month from today to our Missouri Hog Hunt. Janet will be using the Ruger 44 magnum carbine. I think my primary choice will be the Ruger Mini-30 (7.62x39mm) I got from Sundancer last winter.  The alternate choice is my Winchester Model 100 in .308 caliber.  All three now have scopes set at a 100 yard zero, and we will be practicing a lot in the next few weeks , working on getting tight groups at 50 and 75 yards as well as the 100 yard mark.  I am glad I have a pretty good supply of ammo, as both of us need considerable practice to improve our shooting skills.

Mr. Mayor, lleechef will be using her father's pre-64 Winchester Model 70 in .30-06. I just laid in a bunch of sighting-in targets and a few few boxes of ammunition for her. (Considering the cost of that ammo I'm thinking it would be a lot easier on the wallet if she could hunt with her .22 target Ruger.) I'm likely not going to hunt, but just in case I change my mind I'll bring along my .460 Smith & Wesson Magnum revolver, which is a tad heavy for hogs, but fun to shoot.

Hello All
I was offered as a gift of either a Ruger p-94 .40 or a Taurus Millenium .40, both are
like New. I like the Ruger because it is bigger, but I also like the Taurus because it is smaller?
If you had the choice, which would you choose and why? This pistol will be for the range and not for concealed carry.

Either one would make a good carry pistol, but if you don't plan to carry then I'd recommend the Ruger as a fun pistol to shoot. Being bigger it will be easier to control and easier on the hands for longer sessions at the range.

I have a P-95 in 9mm so I'd likely choose the Taurus.
 
Another difference is the Taurus is striker fired, like a Glock, and the Ruger has a hammer and you fire it single or double action.

I don't have either, but I have a pair of Taurus's. One is the 24/7 OSS Semi Auto in .45acp and the other a Model 709 'Slim' compact 9mm.
I really like the 45acp. It fits my hand perfectly, and shoots quite well.  The 9mm is NIB (unfired). I don't carry concealed, so it is up for sale .

Anyone ever try "Zombie" rounds by Hornady? Their basically a rebranded bullet they already have in production. But depending on which site you read, their either superior to anything out there or an existing bullet placed into a new cool looking box.
 
Their more expensive then other high end brands but, ive tried them in several applications (couldnt locate any zombies though) and their pretty impressive. They make a great hunting round. Their not practical for plinking because of the cost, but if you put a box through your gun to see how they shoot, then keep another box for later use - its not too bad.

RE: Firearm lovers mailbox 2012/08/16 13:58:42
My budget doesn't have room for the marketing treats like the Zombie rounds. Since Hornady is already an upper end ammo, I tend to use it sparingly...as in for serious hunting only.  Most of my regular shooting is done with steelcase non reloadable cheap stuff.  My Mini-30 loves the Russian AK ammo. The up coming pig hunt will bring out the premium ammo though.

Mr. Mayor, we're calling an audible. lleechef won't be hunting with the .30-06. Turns out the heavy loads are really too much for her. I'm not sure yet what she'll be using. Possibly one of the ARs in .223. Or, I might be "forced" to buy a .243 for her. She decided not to try my .460 Smith & Wesson Magnum yesterday after I fired a few rounds.

Michael,
  Bring the 30-06 with you to MO. I'll bring the low recoil fusion ammo (2 boxes) let her try that at their range. It really does reduce the recoil a lot. It puts out 2000 fps with a 170 gr sp bullet. But a .223 would do well too at the ranges we'll be using (under 100 yards)
Uncle Groucho, i use CCI Blazer and Mini-Mag 22 ammo. It feeds my two Ruger 10/22's and several 22 handguns without issues. For the little bolt action of Janet's, we use 22CB's and 22 Shorts, you can see the bullet going to the target, but they are fun also. We do our 22's from the back deck, but save the bigger calibers for a friends farm out in Marengo.

I purchased 50 rounds of the Eley ammo at BassPro for under 10 bucks and noticed a BIG difference out of my High Standard, it still jammed twice so I popped off the bull barrel and noticed a small nick with a burr where the bullet enters the chamber and I believe this is causing it to jam, but the ammo worked excellent Thank you Michael Hoffman. The .40 and .45 also worked very well. I spent a lot of money on ammo and went through it very quickly. I will take my 6Yr. old daughter next week.

The name of the steakhouse is Zeno's.  Been there a long time, in various guises.  Not too bad at all, well known locally.  Last time we were there was a couple years ago, I think.  http://www.zenos.biz/intro.htm
 
also worthwhile in Rolla, if it's still there, is Johnny's Smokestack BBQ, although I haven't been there in some time.  I had heard it was having problems and may have closed.  Alex's Pizza is a good stop, too.

It was fun but the place hit us with extra fees here and there that really ran up the cost.
This time everything except a voluntary tip for our guide is in the one-fee. That helps me keep inside the budget !!
 
Michael,  I have been to Johnnies Smokestack several times and we were disappointed most of those visits. We weree guests of our Missouri relatives so we had no choice in the selection. If it has closed that would not be a big loss to anyone.
  I am checking Zeno's and we can plan dinner there. Jan and I will be at the Super 8 across and down the street a little bit from the Waffle House.
 
We have plenty of 44 magnum 240 gr sjsp ammo for Janet.  I think I will use my winchester 100 in .308  with some 180 gr SP ammo for it, and some 154 gr SP hunting ammo for the 7.62x39mm Ruger Mini-30..
