I just took a few pictures of my USFA Rodeo, 5 1/2", 45LC. I bought this to carry or just throw in my Jeep but I've changed my mind and it's off to a new home. I was disappointed to see that USFA has discontinued their production of these guns.
This morning I decided it was time to take a family photo of my Smith & Wesson .44 Specials. Here they are a Model 1950 Target at the top, two blued post WWII transition Model 1926s and a plated Model 1950 Military.
I don't own any firearms, a few replicas sure but I've no reason/need for a live firearm. That said my fav pistol has always been the Browning Hi-Power, well made, reliable and 9mm is more than enough.
Ya don't "need" a spare tire, either...until you do.
lol, that's one way of looking at it. Truth be told, I am actually glad gun laws are so strict here, less guns = less gun related crimes.
Nothing against firearms, I just think they should stay in the hands of the military and out of the hands of civilians. I don't even think police officers should carry. I won't go in to it though and I've got nothing against you guys owning, its just the way it is in the States.
Two new to me shotguns for the grouse coverts; a Belgian gun and Philly Fox Sterlingworth. Yesterday was a good day for everything but my budget.
I picked up a 12 Gauge Belgian shotgun imported by William Read & Son of Boston. The proof marks indicate this shotgun was manufactured between 1910 and 1924. It is proofed for 1 1/8 once loads of 33 grains of some powder. It has 26 inch barrels with minty bores of original dimensions that are choked as marked, cylinder and full. It should be a killer combination over my setters. It is tight as a tick. The nicely browned Damascus barrels still show lots of pattern and original color (the photos make it look more silver than it is). It has nice wood that needs a little light cleaning. The horn butt plate has a few worm holes that need filling.
The AH Fox Sterlingworth is a 28 inch barreled IC &M, 20gauge that weighs in at 6 lbs. even. Someone added a pad but the wood hasn't been cut so now the search is on for an original butt plate to replace the pad.
