Not a gun but thought this was cool. I guess Sam himself was handing these out in London back in 1851 at the Crystal Palace - what would be the first world's fair. The Colt booth was apparently pretty cool.

That's really fascinating! Schwag from 1851, the Crystal Palace, Sam Colt, it's like a movie!

pix817184359.jpgFinally found a Marlin Camp .45 to go with my Marlin Camp 9. Won it on Gunbroker, should be here in a day or 2. I have a cowbell metal target that's just waiting for this to ring it! These truck guns are a lot of fun for just plain old Saturday afternoon plinking. ********* Just a quick update the .45 arrived and I picked it up and did the transfer at 4 Seasons on Thursday. I hope to get to the range today or Sunday and give it a try out!

I picked up this 03 tacoma today for a project/dog hauler, i was originally looking for an FJ or a newer tacoma but this one was tastefully modded and meticulously cared for by its previous owner. its pretty much setup exactly how i want it, but im going to fab a mount for my tepui sky 3 roof top tent over the bed. I drove it up Mount Ord north of phoenix today, tons of fun, I cant wait to spend more time in this buggy.

Picked up a used (basically new, not many rounds fired by my eye) M&P15-22 for my wife for her first Mother's Day. We came across this one a few weeks ago and decided go back this past weekend to take it home with us. She's wanted one for a while so what better present to get her for Mother's Day than a .22 rifle?

For myself, I added a No. 4 Mk. 1 to go with my SMLE. I've wanted an example for a while however it hasn't been something I've been actively seeking out. 1944 Maltby that went through the FTR process in 1948 at Fazakerley. She's in really nice shape with a mint bore....might not be the most collectible Lee Enfield out there but she should be a good shooter.

Technically not a new acquisition, but I just got it back from being hard chromed which gave it a new lease on life so I'm counting it.

Before:


After:


And yes, I put an orange plastic insert in the front sight of my Colt, S&W-style. What are you going to do about it? [laugh] If Colt could put them on Pythons I figured what the hell.

Nice! Love me some hard chrome. My HC'd 1911 has been holding up well to holster wear.

Broke my shoulder in with a this thing yesterday
(my first shottie). That, and sighted in a new PrimaryArms 1-6X on another black scary gun. Happy birthday to me?
Need to work on my shotgun form as I’m a bit black and blue. Well worth it though. God what a thump!

Whatever you do, don't check out these links:

TANDEMKROSS
I looked at a Holosun dot over the weekend and am seriously thinking of getting that. I need some range time with the 22/45 first though.
Already looking at Tandemkross for items though. Especially to make the trigger nicer.

I got my hands on a Vortex Venom for $180 via GovX. As soon as the new mount comes in, I'll trade it out with the OuterImpact mount I put on. I haven't really felt the need to change out the trigger yet. I may feel differently after another 500 rounds.....
