One sort of not so common, or unusual guns that I never bought, but came close to buying several times, before they were discontinued were the Marlin Camp Carbines in 9mm and 45acp.

I don't even remember what they sold for when they were new in the stores, but several years ago, in gun store on consignment sale, a pristine carbine in 45acp was for sale for the princely sum of $950.

last but not least (I promise, for now..) I'd like to submit my (Granbury, Tx) Bond Arms Snake Slayer – a 2 shot Derringer type of set-up – with this pistol if ya wanna shoot different calibers ya just buy additional barrels – I happen to have one barrel that's calibered in .410 shotgun/.45 long Colt and my other barrel is .357mag/,38spec (and shooting .357mag isn't a wrist killer)

change barrels simply using an Allen wrench and remove 1 Allen screw – replace barrel, return screw

rotate the barrel to load or remove spent cartridges, lower and it “clicks” to lock closed – you've gotta pull the hammer back in order for the pistol to fire (shoots the top barrel 1st, re-cock and it'll shoot the bottom barrel)

it weighs 22 or 26 ounces depending on which barrel I have mounted and Bond offers barrels from 2.5” to 6”, in calibers .357mag/.38 spec, .45long Colt, .45acp, .45LC/410shotgun and 9mm

they offer grips made of different materials and 2 different grip sizes/length

this is a nifty little pistol and the workmanship by Bond Arms is top shelf– very light weight for carrying around the property – not a bad purse gun for the Gals too

my Snake Slayer with the 3 1/2" .410/LC barrel mounted - the 4 1/4" .357mag/.38spec barrel above


have 2 holsters for the pistol - my "dress leather" and my "for the field" woven nylon - pic shows barrel rotated up to load/unload

My brother bought a Taurus Judge several years ago for home defense. We shot quite a few rounds through it right after he picked it up at the store down here at the farm. We "killed" an old washing machine that we used as a target!

I have thought of several times of getting one to use for killing snakes around the farm and to keep on my golf cart.

I was amazed at the "type" of choices available in .410  -  many different "SD" - many different "shot"

IMO, I think when Taurus and S&W came out with the revolvers using 410 shells, it created a new interest in the 410, so the ammo manufacturers decided to invest in some updating and bringing it into the 21st century. I'm glad if that's the reason. Because there are a lot more selections for 410 now.

Other than my FAL rifles I only have a Yugoslav M24/47 8mm Mauser rifle which is a great shooter.

now with pistols there is a CZ52 and Russian Makarov in the gun safe.

I have an SBR'd PS90 and a Tavor. That's about the strangest I have.
I have a few guns.
