    I thought it might be interesting for the members to tell and maybe even
    show their gun collections. I am sure there are folks out there who
    do not/will not own a gun. And, again, I'll bet there are some real
    gun collectors among us. I have taken the liberty to upload some
    pic's of my guns.

    The shotgun is a JC Higgins model 1011 .20 gauge. The barrel was 36
    inches, but was cut to 34 1/4 inches. It's 1/4 inch over legal.

    The semi-automatics are a Bauer Arms Co. .25 (of Frazier. Mich),
    an AMT .380 and a Smith Wesson 9 mm.

    The revolvers are older than I am. The snub nose is a "Bulldog" .38
    and the long barrel is a H R Arms Co. .32. The "Bulldog" has no
    serial number, it was manufactured before serial numbers were
    required. Note the octagonal barrels on the pistols.


    Note to Chris: Sorry, man, no Walther PPK.

    Just picked up a S&W .357 revolver. Also have a S&W 59 9mm but the thing keeps stove piping so I moved over to a revolver. Hate to have to NEED a gun and then have it go "ploink" after the first shot. Plus I don't have the time to recycle the mags.

    BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

    I used to shoot the M1 Garand in competition... 300 rounds in practice will do a number on your shoulder!

    I have a pre 1964 Remington .270
    a Ruger 10-22 for plinking and 2 shotguns.

    I intentionally avoid buying guns cuz I'm afraid i wont stop collecting them.

    PLEASE don't try and justify it for me!!!!! I'm weak.

    The trouble is there is too much to collect.. for too many reasons!

    As a history buff, i'd like to have a pair of 18th century 68 caliber dueling pistols, A Kentucky rifle, a Mauser, an StG44..... there is no end!

    As someone who likes to shoot, i want an M-14, a mini-14, 7mm mag, Desert eagle and an auto load shotgun with a magazine..

    The only way I can practice discipline is through abstinence!... I'll stick to paper money....for now!

    :cry:

    The gun I've always wanted to own was a German Navy Luger. They had
    a very long barrel, I'm guessing about ten inches. I saw a couple at gun
    shows, but I would have had to mortgage the house to own one.

    Glider, those match rifles are beautiful....

    Some nice weapons there. Just a shame the deadliest thing we can own over here is an air rifle

    I am not going to bother showing them but I have lot of wildcats and standard calibers in rifles plus specialized shotguns - Fabri's and Perazzi' for both Field and Pigeon Shooting plus many pistols ranging fro S&W mdl 63 in 22 mag, to Model 25 and and 19 and 41 and 29 S%W plus Sig 228, 229 and 239 plus the 1911AI Wilson Custom.

    My five favorite non military type rifles are a Jarrett 280 Ackley, and 338-06 Custom from Wiseman, my 30-06 with Wiseman barrel and McMillan Stock, my 25-284 with a Shilen barrel and .375 with Wiseman barrel. All are 1/2 MOA shooters with 5 rounds at 100yds, better at 200. All have McMillan stocks and Leupold scopes

    If I had to pick one for every animal on earth, it would be my .375 H&H on a Mauser Action with Wiseman bbl. It shoots everything well but is a thumper at 7 pounds w/o scope.
