I think I will retire and move to South Carolina. Those kinds of guns at those prices is amazing.
A Model 10 in that condition would be near $400 here (Nashville).
Come on down. We'd be glad to have you. Those last 3 guns I posted came from a gun dealer here that bought a bunch of guns from the sheriff's department that had been confiscated.

Picked up a couple little guns for Christmas, one of the SCCY 9mm's and stumbled across a lonely little Tanfoglio .380 for $100! Cleaned up real nice. Waiting for Wednesday and hope a Bulgarian Makarov I bought online comes in.

Not my weapon per se, but it was for the day - C7 firing, Connaught ranges, Ottawa:

Nice! The girlfriend's a Canuck and wants to learn to shoot, so I'm thinking about building her a C7 or C8 to borrow when visiting. Mind if I pick your brain on hardware sometime? :) (Personal opinion: every free citizen should know how to operate their country's standard-issue basic service rifle.)
 
Yeah ive got more 1911 mags than ill ever use but they call to me,, kinda like a mag horder. I need intervention.
Who're you kidding? You always need spares, malfunction-prone ones restricted to Range Training, prepositioned stashes... back in college when my now-ex had a stalker problem (we met because I was hired to provide Executive Protection services; to most Loungers who were here when I joined so long ago it's an old story), I had eight or so on my person and in my briefcase, and had her carrying four more in her purse because if I went down the standing instructions were "grab my gun and RUN!"

5" 1911A1 .45 4-Life, as the kids today might say... :D

DB, that AR project does sound interesting and I would love to see photos of it. Just picked up a 1960 Colt Detective Special. Need to get it cleaned up and see if I can post some photos. Deacon those are some nice pistols you picked up too.
 
Kirk, maybe I'll deal the whole crowd in after I've received Pro sign-off. Part of the rub is that the prototype is specially optimized to the unique needs of a left-handed, light/flash-sensitive operator... and the handguard that holds it all together I have literally the last one of its kind that will ever be made, so it's going to take some rework to turn my proof-of-concept build into a production-friendly Engineering Data Package.

Real guns have frequently shown up in sci-fi movies or others based on comic books (like The Shadow), suitably modified to look space-age, even as far back as the 1940s. Most are instantly recognizable, if you know much about guns. The Mauser C-96 and its copies (Astra).

And that reminds me of a comic book in the 1950s, which I think was titled "gun master" or something similar. The hero action character had lots and lots of guns, all handguns, if I recall. They were all different and had curious features, including a revolver with a magazine, pistols with the magazine forward of the trigger, which is not really that uncommon. There was a revolver, the Dardick, that had a magazine for its unusual cartridge. It appeared in the late 1950s. There was also the Gyrojet pistol, something Popular Mechanics must have loved.

Nice! Is the E-11 and DL-44 built off a real Sterling and Mauser C96?
The E-11 is an inert replica build by Master Replica 15 years ago and the DL-44 is an airsoft replica i weathered. Apart from the Blade Runner blaster which is a model gun, the rest is airsoft.

The holster is a copy of the safariland holster they used in the movie, made by a guy in the UK and wetformed on the model.

I will have to post pics later, but a Bulgarian Makarov showed up today. AIM Surplus got some in and I grabbed one. Almost NO wear, was even cleaned of the usual Cosmoline! Only [small] drawback is the target style grip on it. This one has absolutely the best trigger I have ever had on a Makarov in both DA or SA.

Ok, cross posting this from the Classifieds page because it is gun/hunting related. I'm looking for a used/vintage Westley Richards "Scotch" bag (or a field/game bag of similar design. Probably a tall order but I'm hoping that someone from GB may be willing to keep an eye out for one.

Cheers,
