Apparently in cleaning out my grandparents’ house when he moved into an apartment in a retirement community my family found a lot more guns than these, but these were the ones my mom remembered her grandfather carrying when she was little, in these old belt holsters.
It’s my birthday next month and I think I might treat myself.
I’m going to go have some fun today no matter what. Thanks for being great humans and chit chatting about options. I’ve been planning a range day at my sisters place out side of the city for about a month. A few people are going and I’ll be blowing up some old skanky beer. I even made a gong target
*gun related* buffer image just incase #snowflakes
after an afternoon at the range with my brother. Finally got the Tikka sighted in. I am pleased.
Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the M134 Mini-brrrrrt...
Saturday, I took a road trip to Iowa and met up with some long time friends. After that, I stopped by the relatively new Brownells retail store in Grinnell. Meanwhile, my car got some nice January thaw/rainy winter road build up. I also encountered very thick (read: dangerous) fog leaving and returning to MN.
Took this guy out since I was cleaning the Colt Navy. It needs more constant care than the others, the barrel will quickly start deteriorating without regular cleaning.

Posted for the firearms enthusiasts that I know are here on Oppo. Raise your hand if you know what this is. So happy my manager finally bought this, because it is way more durable that the prior tools we used.
I haven’t shot it yet, since I bought it on my lunch break, but it’s a cute little thing... at least I think so.
I just got a thing. It was most likely made around 1925 (this one was made in ‘26 and is only 1,000 different in serial number). 16GA, and the barrel recoils as part of the action, which is fawrking awrsome.
For those of you unaware (probably most of you), I am less than a week from getting married. It’s a lot crazier than it sounds.
Uberti 1873 chambered in .45 colt with the 5.5 inch barrel and charcoal blue finish.
I don't even care about the politics here.
I received my late grandfather shotgun this weekend. Its a 1961 Stevens Savage Arms .410 single shot. Pretty good condition and shoots well. Havent shot much b/c i dont have many shells for it but will be buying more soon
He’s got some interesting memerobilia. I added a .50 cal for scale.
It is the above article, with *I think* the 32" barrel - haven’t measured. 12GA. No photos yet - shopworn, definitely dates from no later than the ‘30s. AMA.
