      Yeah, we are pretty well iced in right now. I am slowly beggining to move a bit...accent on slowly !
       
      While sitting here talking to the dogs and watching old StarTrek TNG reruns I put some new grips on My Ruger Security Six.  It is a very nice revolver, ported 6" barrel, Polished SS finish, Jeweled trigger and hammer, and now a set of Badger Laminate grips in place of the black rubber originals.
      Here are the before and after photos.  More furniture changes coming.

          Another set of oversized grips arrived this weekend. These are Rosewood, and made to fit Large frame Taurus Revolvers, of which I have three.
          1.  Model 44 in 44 magnum
          2.  Model 441 in 44 Spl.
          3.  Model 66 in 357 magnum
           
          I decided to put them on the Model 44. Here are the before and after photos. Looks pretty good to me.
           

           

           

           
          I have two sets ordered for two of my Taurus Tracker Revolvers that I will share photos of , as soon as they arrive.

              Beautiful grips.   I had a Colt Frontier Scout .22LR single action some years back that I put real horn grips on....then sold it.  Wished I had it back.   'Course, now you can't find .22 ammo at all.    The last small bore I bought was a .17 HMR; Savage bolt action, with a 3 x 9 scope,   wow, now that it fun...accurate little thing.

                I just rec'd my AR in 10mm Auto that I had built as my Christmas present. It has a non Mil-spec lower that uses Glock G20 mags. I'll post a pic in a minute.

                  I've been a big 10mm fan since 1992 when I bought a Colt Double Eagle in that caliber.

                      Very nice sir.  Is that lower special for 10mm, or is it a regular .223/5.56 lower and the upper is special to take 10mm Glock mags? Looks like a custom lower to me.
                       
                      We also got 18" of snow, 15" through yesterday afternoon, and another 3" overnight.

                          It's a special lower ´╗┐from DDLES designed to take large Glock mags, think G20 & 21. I'll probably buy a .45acp upper for it in a few months. That lower will work on both uppers.

                            Mike,
                            I am rehabbing ok. Kinda slow, but I think it is more 'cabin fever' than the recovery from treatment. We got 5 inches on friday then 3 more yesterday and a dusting this morning.
                             
                            Nice AR. I've had a couple of the pistol caliber carbines, but none currently.
                            I recently upgraded a couple of guns with new grips and liked the results...see the above posts of the Taurus 44 mag and the Ruger Security Six. Well I decided the black rubber on my Taurus Trackers (I have three of them) had to go...so I managed to find two sets of wood grips for them and installed them today. The third gun will have to wait til I find another st that I like for it. I also fitted a target grip onto a Springfield 1911 replaceing the black rubber grip that was on it.  Here they are---
                             
                            The 1911-

                             

                             
                            The Trackers- a 357 magnum and a 22LR- first in their old grips then in the new outfits---

                              Mr. Mayor, that pretty handle on the .357 looks like it might hurt a bit when firing.

                                When it warms up a bit I will do some shooting to test it out.

                                  My son in law called me this afternoon, all amped up because he bought one of these.... a Russian-made bolt action military surplus 7.62 X 54 from Cabelas for $149.  He said it was built like a tank, and I should go get one, too.  Not currently in the market, but for an 75 year old gun still packed in the original cosmoline, it's halfway tempting.  My next purchase will probably be something else, however.

                                    That Russian 7.62x54R puts out quite a kick. Tell your son to watch out for old surplus ammo, it can be corrosive.

                                      I will have to ask him; I haven't fired it yet.  And appreciate the tip on the ammo; I will forward that along.

                                        Well, we've been kinda quiet here in the range locker, but actually things have been a bit busy.
                                          One area that has taken shape rather nicely recently is my shotgun locker. Setting aside (no pun) the black Mossbergs that seem to multiply like rabbits in the locker, Let's focus on three "keepers"-- SxS Hammer Doubles. Now I have had several of the Norinco 'Coach' guns in the past. Those cheaply made Chinese imports were not much to look at and terrible to shoot. Lots of rough edges and frequent malfunctions... but I have acquired three very nice Coach guns that will stand up to the shooting test and look and feel good too.
                                        Top of the list is a CZ 12 gauge 20" bbl with color-case hardened receiver and fine walnut wood. The other two are Rossi Overland's, one a 20 gauge with an 18.5" bbl, and the other a .410 with a 24" bbl.
                                        Here they are. The 410 on top,  then the 20 ga. and the 12 ga resting on the bottom.
