First time wading into the Family friendly section, and I wanted to check first.

Now that it's alright, here's some of mine.

Lots of firearms talk here, it is a common hobby among many of us, but if it gets political it gets shut down pretty quick...
There is a thread about 12 down on this page about muzzle loaders.

Well, in that case, here are a few of mine.

Colt Wily Clapp Government, Series 70 1911. Had some custom work done, but it's been mechanically perfect since I got it.

Love that Barrett! I'm going to need an epic find to get one of those, however.

Job won't allow me to move. Been here 46 years- 7-12 years more and then I'm out. Boating accidents suck- lol- and are very common.

Rattlehead, the grips on the little luger 22 looking pistol are REALLY nice, did you make those?

The KSG is a neat little shotty. Holds a lot of ammo (15 2 3/4 shells) in a very compact package. Overall itís shorter than most registered SBSís and since the barrel is still 18.5Ē, no tax stamp is required.

When I first got the thing I hated it. Jammed up every other time I cycled the action. But after using it for a little while I realized that since the pump and receiver are so much further back, it makes it really easy to short stroke. Thatís what I was doing and what was causing the jams. As long as you pump the KSG with authority it performs flawlessly. It does seem to run best with high brass.

Thanks zeemang. I had those made by JS Gun Grips. I wish I had the talent to make some cool grips! I tried making a set for my 1911 once. Turned out terrible.

Dang Birddog, expecting an invasion soon? Just kidding, you got some good guns there. But I think I'll stay with my old Winchester.
