Official Firearms Thread!

Hopefully the mods dont mind the title.
 
I figured it would be cool to make a thread dedicated to firearms as most here most likely venture into shooting sports just as much as they do biking.

I don't think there is a problem unless the topic turns to violence.  Anything "sport" or equipment related should be fine.


I have a few handguns that I like and enjoy shooting them when I have the time.
My favorite (that I own) is my Sig p228.  It was a Swiss police turn in that I purchased about a year ago.  Looks like it was fired about 3 times :)
I like this handgun because of its rail less design.  To me it looks a little nicer. 
I also have a S&W MP40 and a Walther p22 with a laser sight.
Rifle wise I have a Marlin 35 and a crappy bolt action 22

Yeah I dont think it will turn into violence, lol.
 
I was more thinking what you just posted, just talk about gear and maybe pics or videos at the range, etc. or if someone had a question about gun/gear they could post here. 8)

Just bought a Taurus PT 1911 in 9mm (cheaper ammunition). Most likely selling my Savage .270 long rifle very soon (interested let me know).


Shot a Glock recently, didn't like the polymer feel (only a personal preference), but it was fun shooting.

Now y'all are speaking my language.  Marskmanship and tactics is what I do.  Right now I carry a G19 and am looking to buy a S&W M&P 9L 5" "gaming" blaster.  Y'all have questions, feel free to ask.  I have a little background in shooting/teaching.

I do if it fits the hand.  Great gun and functions flawlessly (why it's my every-day carry gun), but other guns fit me better which is why I'm changing.  Once I get the 9L, if I like that platform I'll get a 4.25" M&P to replace the G19.

I only have my Springfield XDm 9mm:
Dawson fiber front and adjustable target rear
Canyon Creek extended mag release
Canyon Creek tungsten guide rod for 1911 springs
Canyon Creek gun work to bring the trigger down to 3lbs
Good ol'fashioned grip tape

I use this for my USPSA competitions.  It's about as hardcore as you can take a production gun.
