While a Belgian Browning .22 is a fine pistol, it is still a ,22. To ditch a .38 for a .22 makes absolutely no sense at all. If you were unhappy with the power of a .38 Special round then switching to a .22 was worse than silly. Although the .38 special round is not the most powerful in the world, dropping down to a .22 is pretty dumb. If you were unhappy with the power of the .38 special, then why didn't you just step up to the Plus-P version? For that matter, did you really believe that a hollowpoint .22 would do more damage than a hollowpoint .38?

I, too, grew up with guns (in PA) and when I moved to ATL we used to shoot alot. Now that development is encroaching, I don't get to the range often, but I take Mrs. Oneiron occasionally. She uses her revolver and I usually break out the Springfield XD .45 or the S&W .40. I'm still missing the clay bird shooting close by as now we have to drive 50 moles to do any clay target practice. Love my guns - am too a Life Member. PS - I won 2nd place in the GA Silhouette Championship a few years ago with my magna-ported S&W M29 8 1/2" .44MAG.

CSD,
That's a sweet one. I have its poor cousin, the Highway Patrolman 28-2 in 4". There's nothing like a blue N frame. Would love to have a reg. mag, but they've gone up too much for me for a shooter, and I'm not interested in safe queens.

Oneiron, my man! Another XD .45 lover.

CSD, a fine looking revolver! I have that in a 6" barrel with target sights & trigger. It makes a .357 into a pussycat. .357 mag has always been my favorite center fire caliber. I have 5 of them including a semi-auto Coonan and a lever action carbine by Rossi. I usually buy my practice ammo 1k rounds at a time.

PP prefers my 9mm S&W pistol, less recoil. When her security job went armed though she practiced with the model 27 using .38spl. The extra weight she says helps her control better and when she qualifies she shoots the company's mod 19 4" better.

I taught both my girls how to shoot at an early age, now both of them pack a weapon for work. The youngest is a decent shot and the oldest is darn good. She out shoots the guys and they don't like that a lot

I'll be taking out my new XD in a couple hours, this will be my 1st experience with a .45. I have high hopes for it.

MikeS.

All righty, now we're talking. I shoot IPSC & IDPA, my "game gun" is a Glock 34 with Dawson Precision sights and a Charlie Vanek trigger job. I have over 20,000 rounds through the gun and it's breaking in nicely, trigger is a little over one pound. Others include two Glock 19's, one set up like the 34 as a backup and one stock for carry, one Glock 26 (Wifes gun), two Kel-Tecs (Bugs), one Browning .22 Rifle, one Feather .22 Rifle, one Mosseberg shotgun, and soon to be an Olympic Arms AR-15 in 9mm that accepts Glock Magazines (I have about 25 standard high capacity and three 30 round high capacity magazines).

And three cookers.

I am amazed about how many gun lovers there are. My inventory is going down the drain pretty quick. I have had several folks inquire about my inventory.

I am only going to keep one and it will be my cheapest piece.

You guys have got the first shot. All I am trying to do is reduce my stress. I am getting rid of anything that causes me stress. I am not trying to auction off anything.

Although I don't hunt anymore (got tired of killing things) I still love to shoot. We go whenever we can to an indoor range nearby. Still miss taking a box of claybirds and several boxes of shells and going to a field and throwing them all afternoon.

Once grouse season ends here on the last day of February each year I get back to at least one clays outing a week. I mostly shoot sporting clays, but occasionally skeet and trap.

Well my new .45 goes BANG real well. It's shooting left and a bit low at 30 feet from a 2 hand stance. I'll take it out again in a few days with a sandbag rest and try it that way. It was a lot of fun to shoot and is going to be a challenge to master.

Oh, I get it. Y'all are a bunch of anarchists who want to destroy our way of life!

I don't believe that citizens should be allowed to own guns, because:

1) They can easily hurt themselves.

2) It's been PROVEN (just like man-caused global warming) that allowing common, unlightened citizen scum to own handguns only results in everyone shooting and killing someone at the slightest provocation.

3) The government knows (and cares about) what's best for all of us, and allowing citizens to own guns might someday get in the way of the government's right to control us. Heaven only knows what would happen to us if we were left to make decisions for ourselves!!! " />

4) Who needs an assault rifle to go hunting???

Well, I guess I've made my point. I encourage all of you gun-toting, 2nd-amendment believing, child-abusing, America-hating scum to turn in your guns NOW!!!

Your government will thank you for your patriotism.

My first Christmas in Alaska.....gifts consisted of a down parka with coyote fur hood and a .22 Ruger. Strangest gifts I ever received. It's a nice little gun for shooting ptarmagan. Our house in Alaska is like an armory. He has guns for everything. We never travel (except through Canada) without the .44 Magnum (Maggie). I bought him a Snake Charmer one year for his birthday........oh, we're BIG into guns. I'll see if I can get Zman to post the specifics of all of his treasures.

I used to include a handgun in my Airplane luggage when I traveled.. The laws have made that a very complex activity So I don't do it now. It is even hard to be aware of all the various state laws when you travel by car from state to state. Carrying a gun in a vehicle unloaded is not going to help in that emergency "self defense" situation, but carrying a loaded weapon may be a felony in some states.
I used to have a great concern about those things (more than now) because if a teacher (in California) is convicted of a felony (even a weapons felony) they will lose there Teaching Licence permanently. Thus being convicted of carrying a loaded gun in my car could have cost me my ability to work in the state in my career field. Somehow that doesn't balance against the freakin' gangbanger who robs me with a TEC 9 in my face and gets 'probation' for a sentence.

Something I face as well being a Fed. Packing.org is a great site that will help you determine each states laws about vehicle carry.

Congress has been working on a bill that would make reciprocity of CCW permits the law. If you have a state issued permit then all states would recognize it. With the new congress this is probably a bit further out but it might still make it. Now that would be way cool.

Welllllllll........I do have a Super Duper Automatic Deluge 1 Gallon Super Soaker Water Gun that's bigger than an AK 47. My targets include my son and his posse, cats on the dining room table, hanging baskets of plants and annoying people. It's much prettier than any y'all have shown, with it's green, blue and purple casing. The best thing is I've never had any trouble getting it through airport security." />

Fun gun to shoot but very expensive ammo. Friend of mine that works at a gun store had one for a short while.

Nowadays Black Talon is called Ranger, supposedly LEO only but easily found. Most LEO’s that I know carry Gold Dot in their personal weapons, me too.

It's a fine pistol, but you'll need suspenders to hold up your britches if you ever want to strap one of those on your belt. Better yet, get one of those concealed-carry wheelbarrows.
