    hiya and howdy

    hi guys, i was just wandering around the 'net and since the someone left the door open... i usually stick close the the rimfire areas, but since i do own a few centerfires - maybe this will get me off my butt and out to shoot the 308 or at least the 223.
    thanks for the welcome :D

    Geez Smokin Guns ain't just a name huh? I'd have to borrow a few guns from friends to come halfway close. I've never even held a thompson (unless suzie counts).

    well you got me beat, you sure got big'uns. :D

    once again - wow! :)

    hmm

    What we see here is another case of guns going nearly unused when Z's motorcycle, tuition and gun fund is in bad need of firearms for the less fortunate.

    And even if ol SG takes em out every couple weeks I'd still have him beat, I go shootin a couple times a week at least.

    Or maybe he uses them constantly but I still deserve a couple! Now that I'm out a motorcycle and workin my butt of for tuition I don't have, I'd say some of you gun nuts could really help me out here!

    I use the term "gun nut" in the nicest way :D .





    I mean come on, I'm already seriously contemplating whether or not it's worth getting yelled at to shoot the nailguns at work at the squirrels in the homeowner's yard....


    Send help

    ya got me thinkin

    i don't have all my guns recorded, let alone photographed. worse than that, i have a habit of leaving them with close friends and family, it seems. here's the ones i have (just) photographed.
    i did them in sections, so the upload wouldn't take forever.


    this is my current craze - 10/22's

    and of course, you gotta own a 223 or two. i've got a good friend into 'black guns' thank god, so i don't have to own any - he's got more than he can shoot.

    and this last shot - the 'dumb' guns that everyone owns, but is afraid to admit to.

    you've made me think about gudn that i have stashed away at different places, again, i don't know why.

    1 mossberg, 1 winchester 12ga shotgun - at my brother's
    1 92f beretta - same place
    1 savage 300 - friend's
    1 357mag - nephew's
    old ruger mark I pistol - can't remember
    1 remington 597 - different brother's house

    god, this is scary - i think i'm on the way to gun nut

    but ya still got me beat sg - damn, a thompson - you just had to show me that, huh?

    worse, it's a tec22 and a jennings 22 ear-wax remover. also known as a nose hair puller. used to backpack desert a lot a few years back (he says as he leans back and scratches his beard), quite a few years back. used to carry a k-bar on my belt, and that jeenings in my pack where i could reach it with my right hand. wasn't much good at ten feet, but if you got real close and stuck it in somebody's ear, it sure would clean the earwax out.:D luckily it was the seventies and eighties, so most everybody you ran into in the desert was too stoned to bother you.

    the black gun is a remington 700pss. the gun above it is a winchester model 1917, with some eddystone parts. it was 'sporterized' in the 50's, near as i can tell from the history. i was told that's a unertl scope on it, but i'll be damned if i can find any markings. the barrel is 85 years old - the guy i bought it from says it's extremely accurate. i haven't shot it yet, even though i've had it for a year. i bought the 700 planning to do some highpower shoots, ran across the 1917 and bought it too. shot the 308 for a while, but it's a pain finding someone who wants to drive to a range where you can shoot more than 200 yards. so then i re-discovered rimfires (i've owned a 10/22 since the 80's) and got kinda side-tracked.
    i've decided that this weekend is going to be big-bore time. its about time i put a few rounds through 'grampa-gun'.
