Ahh, another member of Chonky Pistol club! I have the Taurus clone of the Beretta M9.So, I snagged a new thing ^.=.^
CZ PO 9, my first full size handgun. Everything else I've had has been a compact/subcompact. Can't wait to get some range time in with this, especially since I finally found a reliable source of 9mm in these trying times.
The collection has grown notably since I started the thread, so I'll need to post an updated "family photo" soon XD
Nice. I have a VEPR in 7.62.54r that's pretty similar to a Tigr. I love that gun!My Tigr classic, the one with the conventional wood stocks fires 7.62 X 54R and it seems to make a butt-tonne more noise than my M1 Garand in 7.62 X 63. I had it at the range last fall and one dOOd asked me to quit firing it so much. It was hurting his wimpy ears. Mind you, both rifles are gas-actuated but maybe the longer stroke of the Garand helps mitigate the racket a bit. Also, the Garand will kick you to death during a range day. Not so much for The Tigr.
Was it a fingerprint magnet? The idea of a golden deagle is ridiculous. It's already a ridiculous pistol even when it's just "normal".I actually saw one for sale a few weeks back on a local shop. Gaudiest thing I've ever held XD
Just a coating, and yeah, they pick up fingerprints life nobody's business.Was it a fingerprint magnet? The idea of a golden deagle is ridiculous. It's already a ridiculous pistol even when it's just "normal".
And, are they really gold-plated, or is it just PVD coating / high polished brass?
Aye. The user have no shotguns.So, finally got around to taking that "family photo" I mentioned a little while back and, well..... things have grown significantly since my first post in this thread, to put it ever so lightly XD
If anyone's got questions as to what any of the stuff here is, I'd be happy to answer them! Also, somewhat related.... if ANYONE can find me a stock and handguard set for a Greek 1903 Mannlicher/Shonauer carbine (an 03/14 built on a 1930 MS System receiver if we're gonna be specific, and NOT one of the commercial rifles) I will pay handsomely for it! Previous owner of mine, for some reason, bubba'd the stock of a 1903 long rifle to fit the carbine. Looks nice, but if you know what you're looking for, you can tell what's wrong.
I don't but I'd like to someday. I'd do percussion cap tho. Not hardcore enough to go flintlock!Do we have anyone who shoots black powder in here? I've been thinking of trying to get in to it for some time and was curious what peoples' experiences were. Also, flintlock vs percussion cap?
The MAS 44 and 49 and probably some machine guns. As a MAS 49 owner, I actually have a local supply of ammo for it XD just keep your eye out for surplus.I got a MAS-36 I really want to take to the range, but ammo is almost impossible to find for it. I Think Partizan is the only manufacturer. Seriously, what else is chambered in 7.5×54mm French?
