Tempting, very tempting........

Thanks fellas! Put a down payment yesterday on a late 40's S&W M&P (Pre Model 10) Revolver. Love those old Smith's. Forgot to get a pic but I'll be getting it out of jail soon enough and I'll do it then.

Something about the old saying when guns are outlawed, or in this case hi cap mags, only outlaws will have guns or hi cap mags, applies here. 

The dems will spin their wheels pushing back against Trump and playing revenge politics. They know trying to impeach Trump or Kavanaugh is a waste of time as the votes in the senate are not there. Doesn't mean they won't try anyway.
The big item in play is the dem party nomination for 2020 president. Hopefuls will be trying to get the most camera face time and gotcha' moments and you can bet with the backing and out of state popularity that Beto had/has his socialist butt will be in the mix. It's going to be a GD circus. Will be fun watching them stab each other in the back to get on that ticket.

With the republicans having the majority in the senate you can be pretty well assured that all of Trump's conservative judicial picks  will be vetted and there ain't nothing Pelosi and her gang can do about that. Hopefully another SCOTUS pick will be coming.

Bigger city pawn shops always have the good stuff if you really look. When I lived in the Ft. Hood area I got some great deals on uncommon firearms
A model 57 Smith? Man you just don't see those very often. Don't mean to pry Chief but was it expensive? One of the few Smith's I do not have or have had.
I like snub's and have a few. But what's that under that pinned Model 36 with round butt grips? Looks like an old school, what we called back then, slapjack or leather baton.
Love the old pre war and post war military pistols. The first model Mauser pictured is a great example. They are surprisingly affordable if you can find one that doesn't have condition or mechanical issues. That's a great find.

Looking at the patches in the back ground, I wonder if he was a LEO.  Making illegal suppressors will definitely grab some attention.
Photo was probably taken at the police station. Many law enforcement agencies have display cases like the one shown in their conference and briefing rooms or individual offices.
You could be right though. Several of LEO's that I know have serious patch collections.

Not that it adds anything to this thread but in 1972 my first adult firearm purchase was the original 14+1 Model 59. I believe at the time it was the only american manufactured pistol with a high capacity double stack magazine. Couldn't shoot it very well but it got a lot of oooh's and ahhh's at the range.

Wow! Your place is really taking shape. Pretty good work for an old horse fornicator.  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

such a thoughtful Daddy  :th_thicon_idea:
Yup, that's me. He kind of mentioned it in passing when we were having supper the other night. Told me all the younger deputies have theirs or are about put their orders in for one. We are a pretty close family, he lives two houses down in the same cul de sac, and I know with one in college and another in high school he has fiscal priorities and a $550 firearm ain't one.
I don't mind helping out and I like knowing he has another dependable firearm when he's on duty.   

My sons department recently authorized the use of the PSA AR 15 Carbine in .556 or .300 ACC Blackout as a patrol rifle. I always want the best for my boy so I ordered one in 300 BO for Christmas last Wednesday and it arrived Friday. Free shipping, comes with, Shockwave adjustable brace, one mag, Picatinny rail upper and MLOK lower. I'm plan on buying a tactical soft case and a couple of extra mags but he's on his own about any red dot, glass or anything else he wants to put on it. It's pretty dang nice for $550 and I'm thinking of picking one up for myself.

Saw this earlier today. You have to put it in your cart to see the price. Smokin' deal IMO.

Voted a straight Republican ticket yesterday morning. I initially went Thursday afternoon there must have been over a hundred people in line. Don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Never had to stand in line for early voting before.

I have a 5.11 brand folding knife I received as a bonus for buying a pair of boots years ago. Sharp as a razor. I carry it occasionally when I go somewhere where it might be needed such as outdoor BBQ's or cookouts where a dangerous lime or lemon needs to be sliced for a margarita or vodka martini.
Seriously, if I'm going to the range or to the lake or river I always have my Snap-on Multi-tool on my hip or in my range bag. But as a EDC no. I keep both in my car though.

Fake news media doesn't really give a rats ass about the guy. They just use it as a narrative to take a poke at how Trump is handling the situation. No matter what Trump doe's it won't be good enough.

RDS on auto pistols. Laser's on my 9 mm. and 5.56 carbines.
Tango: What do you have, if anything, on your FN 5.7? I installed a under barrel light on the factory rail on mine but I thought it threw the balance off so I removed it. Have been thinking about buying an aftermarket top mount for a Burris Fastfire red dot but still on the fence. Have a Burris on my PMR 30 and it really improves my accuracy.
