Ha ha ha! That's awesome! Good looking Garand, and neat Thompson. It's obvious you don't live in California.

What I'd really like is a nickel M53 in 8-3/8" trim. That would be sweet.

I sorta cheated...I have a Police Positive in .22lr and a Police Marksman. However, like you, I am definitely more of a Smith devotee...with my fav being the 5-screw N-frame. One of my most treasured pieces is this old K-frame .22

Yeah. Obscure attempt at humor. The .44 TDE Automag--ya just gotta love a gun that requires you to make your own brass. Cool looking gun, though.

I had a Sig 228 with two pre Feinstein magazines. Beautiful gun and very nice workmanship. I put maybe 80 rounds through it before I sold it. Sigh.

yessir, but minus the IR laser honestly, a Surefire using the Harries grip would do just as well ps - have onwed the MK. 23 and a USP-Tactical, much prefer the latter - the SOCOM is pretty overrated IMO.

Um... sex appeal man. You'll never pull the girls with... "Hey, want to see my USP Tactical?"

Now, if you said "Lets go back to my pad and I'll show you my Mk. 23" you'd need a crowbar to pry them off your jock.

I always found cooking to be a superior panty-dropper :drink:

Another of my favs, an old S&W Mod. 27, 3inch barrel Glock 19, with poser 33-rd. mag - also has the nice fully adj. target sights from Champion Gunsights

Cooking? Jeezus man, way to promote bad habits.

If you get girls used to "eating food" around you, next thing you know they balloon up to 300 lb fatties! Good luck with that!

I much prefer to have them trained to live in fear and awe of my superior firepower. If you can't get a girl to drop the panties by showing her your gun, you must be doing something drastically wrong.





By the way, I am kidding. I don't want any of you damn hippies out there getting all pink socked over me political incorrectness.

Kengs, what's with the forward grip on the FN? I would think it would help mostly for auto but that's semi isn't it? Nice pieces. I'd guess that FN ammo isn't too cheap.

it's a bit gimmicky IMO, i still use an old school modified Weaver stance.

They have .30 M1 Carbines also!

I'll second the above. I have a service grade M1 and a rack grade M1, both were Greek return guns purchased from the CMP. There isn't a better deal for an authentic M1 Garand on the market today (notice I said authentic, I'm not talking about the frankenguns like the ones offered by Springfield Armory, which are not totally built on USGI parts).

The CMP temporarily "ran out" of M1 Garands earlier this year but they're now back in stock -- and at higher prices. When I first qualified to buy a Garand through the DCM (not a typo), you could get a M1 for $185. Of course I procrastinated and waited until 2006 to purchase my first Garand, when the price for a service grade gun had gone up to $500! You snooze, you lose ... so if anybody wants a M1 they should get one while they are still in stock.

PS the Greek (HXP headstamp) .30-06 ammo that CMP sells is great stuff. With M193 (5.56 NATO) going for over $400/k I'm shooting a lot more .30-06 these days.
