    I refer to any gun as a "sword" since they are the personal weapon of our days. Post up any make, any model, any caliber, all slide cuts.

    Shot my Krebs Custom ORM Colt 1991A1 Commander in a local action pistol match today. What a great handling and shooting gun, it's one of my favorites. Mark Hartshorne recently fit a gold bead from a S&W revolver sight to the Heinie front sight and I hadn't had a chance to shoot it since I got...

    I had to do a small amount of rearranging after I opened the door and a prized gun tumbled to the floor. (no noticed damage) I thought I'd take a few pics while I had some of them out. The one pic is my S&W 38-44 group. a 1950 and 1955 production along with a Transitional model. Above them is my...

    Just wanted to get everyone pumped up for the very near 30k detail strip/clean/writeup. Think of it as a pep rally, except instead of a football game, it's for a meaningless milestone on a gun that belongs to a stranger on the internet. Gun is currently at 29,250 rounds! Kydex holster on a...

    Sent a 1981 70's series colt to Brandon awhile back and my time has come! I asked him if it would be ok to post some of the progress pics here on addicts and he said OK! If anyone would like to see more he has several on his Facebook page. The only kicker is since I sent it to Brandon I've...

    Mr. Panciotti sent me some progress pictures of my Colt Commander. Pleasantly surprised, I just had to share them. Don't wanna spoil all the fun -just- yet and tell you what all is being done, so I'll just update this when I get pictures from Mr. Panciotti. (If you see this don't feel obligated...
  13. Range Reports & Reviews
    Got another chance to go to the range with my 9mm nighthawk last week and boy was I happy with my groups. The center target was first shot at 16 yards and then moved back to 25 yards where my groups opened up, mostly because my eyes were tired and I had been shooting for two hours. Headed to the...

    I have a local guy selling a Remington Rand he says was built in 1947. The guns in great shape with much of the blueing and the original magazine. He wants $1800. Is that a good deal? Not really sure if I want it because I only care for shooters and being somewhat a trigger snob and someone who...

    I recently purchased a 9mm nighthawk. It's a great great gun. Especially love the black nitride finish they apply. I have the same model in .45 and bought the 9mm because it meant cheaper and more range time for my wife who prefers the round. I've had it apart a few times now and I can't help...

    So this was built for the customer to use in IDPA, CCP division. Meeting the requirements for the weight ended up being harder than I expected. Of course I was using all steel, railed and chambered in 9mm. What felt liking doing everything twice and some three times to shave a few ounces success...
