General Gun Discussion / Need help with my Tokarev
« on: August 02, 2018, 04:48:26 PM »
Two months ago I took my Tokarev and Enfield  to the range and shot some surplus ammo out of both. I know surplus ammo can be corrosive so I always flush and clean the barrel within 24 hours. Except this time. I just plain forgot. Earlier today I was cleaning another pistol when it dawned on me. Took the Tok apart and found that my almost pristine barrel was ruined. Corroded and pitted.
I can get another barrel for $50 but it doesn't come with the under barrel swivel link and pin. I have been told that I can use a small punch to remove the pin and then install the link. Has anyone done this before.

Haven't looked at the Enfield yet. Had enough bad news for one day.

General Gun Discussion / Another humble brag
« on: July 28, 2018, 07:26:48 PM »
16 year old grandson and I took a trip to the range Thursday. Shooting my American Ordnance 9 mm carbine he put 30 rounds down range. He handed it back and said it's shooting a little down and right and had to aim up and left to hit center.
Uh yeah I see what you mean.   :icon_wink:

Handguns and Revolvers / My new to me Walther P1
« on: July 22, 2018, 05:11:39 PM »
As discussed in the previous thread I ordered this from Aim Surplus on June 30 and received it on July 5th. I didn't want to post anything until I determined exactly what I had. I used my C&R license to have this delivered to my house. As most of you know in order to qualify as a C&R firearm under ATF regs the firearm must be at least 50 years old or anything up to and prior to 1968. Taking it out of the box one of the first things I noticed was a Feb. 1980 date on the slide which is 12 years short of the required fifty. I was about to call Aim but decided to do a little research first.
I found out some years ago the ATF designated the P 38/P 1 as a military collectible and was then made available for sale to C&R license holders. OK so this is not the 50+ year old Bundeswehr P 1 I thought I was buying but what exactly is it? After some more research and having questions answered by people that know I found that the lower with the serial number was a P1 manufactured in the late 50's. The P 38 type thin alloy slide was replaced with the newer P 1 reinforced slide that was manufactured in 1980. The barrel is definitely a replacement, appears used very little, if at all, and I am told that over the life of the pistol it probably had the majority of it's original parts replaced. Import markings indicate "ERTD Belgrade, MT." Elk River Tool & Die, Belgrade Montana I think.
So I'm pretty pleased with the purchase. Basically a new pistol with a history.

The Bundeswehr holster is pretty neat. That's not a scratch on the slide it's a small scuff mark reflecting the light. Been under the weather lately so I haven't had a chance to get some range time. Hopefully soon though.

Gun News & Laws / No charges in Florida stand your ground shooting
« on: July 21, 2018, 10:26:54 AM »
Yeah he was assaulted but I don't think I would end somebody's life for pushing me on the ground. Seems the shooter has a history of confrontational behavior.

From ABC News: Drejka is a legal concealed weapons permit holder and will not be charged because of Florida's Stand Your Ground law, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
The store owner tells ABC Action News that Drejka has a history of assaulting people in the very parking lot the shooting took place. A man who frequents the store told ABC Action News he had a run-in with the man who opened fire just one month ago. Rich Kelly says the man picked a fight with him over a parking spot, using racial slurs, and even threatening to kill him. Now, a month later, a similar case, ending with a father killed in front of his 5-year-old son.

Body cam video.   
Made my BP spike a little watching this.

Having perversion between adults and everything else that comes with it thrown in your face everyday is one thing I can usually tune it out but this is way beyond that. I have a cure for this and I keep it on my right hip.
Somebody tell me this isn't true.


Brisket, tater salad and corn on the cob here. Good glass of whiskey a good beer and a cigar on the deck later. Have Mel Gibson's The Patriot on DVR to view around 2200 Hrs. God bless America. Hope the rain doesn't  spoil you fun.

Not long at a minute and a half. The grand finale is  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:


Warning Spoiler Alert:

His Glock jammed? Murphy's Law reared it's ugly head for sure.
"called the fight the most difficult of his military career" I would guess that is an understatement
A claw hammer? Finished them off with a claw hammer. Damn..........

New Jersey has some of the most restrictive firearms laws in the nation.
Gang member granted early release from prison under governor's new crime reform agenda even though he received additional time while incarcerated for racketeering.
Gang member shoots up art festival killing one and injuring several others. Police believe gang related.
Instead of laying the blame at the feet of the criminal that caused this along with the states "hug a thug" programs that allowed him back on the street the governor calls for more laws restricting firearms to rid the "scourge" of national firearm violence.

Thank you NJ police for killing this piece of garbage. No early release this time.

I like true law enforcement narratives. Kind of lengthy but very detailed. One of the better pieces of journalism I've come across in awhile.

Doesn't appear to have much teeth to it. More of a feel good we did something about those evil black rifles ordinance. Two lawsuits have been filed. Wonder how much money this will cost, on both sides, before it is hopefully overturned

Handguns and Revolvers / No Dash S&W Model 36
« on: June 06, 2018, 01:30:45 PM »
I like nice snubs and my LGS knows this. Manager called this morning to let me know they had just received a no dash Model 36 in the shop. To me this is almost like the Holy Grail of snub nose revolvers. I have a pinned nickle Model 36 and have been looking for a blue steel model for several years.
During that time I've come across many examples but they were either in poor condition, way overpriced or a combination of both. This Model 36 is pretty much pristine. Although S&W manufactured thousands of this model you just don't often see a no dash Model 36 in this type of condition at least I haven't until today. Only blemish is a barely noticeable turn ring which is pretty inherent for S&W revolvers or any revolver for that matter. Probably paid about $75 more than I should of but I wasn't going to walk away from it. Owner said he bought it in 1960 and running the SN shows a manufacture date of 1959. Pinned, round butt, and clean..... :th_thicon_idea:


Optics, Lights, Lasers, Holsters & Accessories / Ruger SR 1911
« on: June 02, 2018, 04:02:30 PM »
This is my grandsons stainless SR 1911. It's kept in my safe. His birthday is in two weeks so I bought him some elk antler horn grips and a Bianchi Black Widow holster for when we go to the range.
After I put on the grips I got to thinking that someone on TGF told me once a few years ago that the Ruger red emblem is for firearms with a blue finish. Does anyone know if that's true? It probably won't make a difference to the boy but will annoy the crap out of me if true. 

Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / Wal Mart Door Nazi's
« on: June 02, 2018, 03:42:54 PM »
I hate Wal Mart. I only go when I need something auto related as their prices are considerably lower than places like Auto Zone or NAPA. So trying to beat the crowd and to minimize my time in the store I went at 8:00 this morning to get anti freeze, brake fluid and a couple of other things for my wife's Cadillac.
Mistake #1. Forgot it was the first weekend of the month and all recipients of welfare, baby daddy checks and other gubment assistance were already out in full force.
Mistake #2. While looking for auto fuses I had the displeasure of standing by a woman and her three dirty faced kids say 10 -15 years old. They smelled of body odor, KFC Chicken and cigarettes.  :sick2: To neutralize this I grabbed one of those pine tree car deodorizers and inhaled deeply and rubbed it on my my shirt. Felling better I decided to leave without a couple of things I wanted.
Mistake #3. Not really a mistake but just typical of Wal Mart. With the self check out lanes full I started walking down the isle in front of the registers and I saw they had three lanes open all with about five people deep in each lane. As luck would have it I saw a lane without a light on but there was someone at the register just finishing with a customer. I started putting items on the belt. Clerk told me she was about to go on break. I told her I have six items and I would be out of her way in less than a minute. She reluctantly rang it all up.
Mistake #4. The Door Nazi.  The elderly gent at the exit door diligently checking receipts against what you have in the basket and marking each item off with a yellow marker. Are you freaking kidding me? I have to produce my "papers" to exit friggin' Wal Mart and on top of that there's a line of shepple waiting for their turn to be checked and allowed out with their legally purchased property. I figure it to be at least another five minute wait. I know the guy is just doing his job and appears to be enjoying it but maybe a little to much I'm thinking. I could have walked 100 feet down to the lawn and garden exit where there is no door Nazi but screw that I'm leaving now. I walk around the shepple and go through the door. Door Nazi: "Hey you have to get your things checked before you leave." I replied "Maybe other people do but not me, thanks anyway" and waved continuing on my way."
I'll end this by saying that I go through life not trying to be an ass but sometimes s**t just comes your way. The guy follows me into the area where the carts are telling me to come back. I ignore him at first but his whiny persistent tone finally got to me. I turned around and squared up telling him to back up and leave me alone. He kind of just stared at me and didn't say anything. I then told him he should get back on the job as his other customers were escaping. He kind of did a jump half turn and hustled back inside.
When I relayed this story to my wife and daughter in law they made it out like I was the bad guy. DIL stated that I could be banned from Wal Mart for doing that. Oh hell ya give me a paper, criminal trespass warning, anything written banning me from Walmart and I'll frame that sucker and hang it in my living room. I'll preface any conversation with "You know I'm the guy they banned from Wal Mart for not stopping for the door Nazi."
So tell me fellow TGF members was I wrong? Opinions please.
