    Let's make this the Official Firearm's/ Shooting thread here on Pa Fisherman. Feel free to post picture's of firearms, firearm related stuff, sales going on places, or anything firearm related that you would like to share/discuss/ talk about. I enjoy looking at picture's of other firearm's so if your comfortable sharing a photo of one of your's please feel free.

    I will start it off with my Taurus Raging Bull in 480 Ruger Magnum. Had this gun for many of years now and it is one that I will have forever. It doesn't often see the woods much anymore but does get a range trip every now and again.

    Well, my carry gun is a Taurus PT101-AFS in 40 cal.... love it... heavy as hell but just makes the 2nd, 3rd and 4th shots come on target a little bit faster.. The other one I like to shoot is my 50 cal Hawkin... just love the smell of blackpowder and the cloud of smoke..... My Taurus.jpg

    Very nice I have not seen an older Taurus semi like that in many of years. I like my black powder guns as well but have to admit that I like the inline muzzleloader over the flintlock much more. I will try to get a photo up tomorrow of my new Springfield that I have been carrying as of late.

    Here's my latest acquisitions.
    1933 hex laminate mosin nagant and a circa 1979 beretta jetfire.
    Nice, I am a fan of all steel guns. I have gotten rid of almost all of the tupper ware guns that I had. I guess I just like the classics a little better.

    My two latest, purchased at the Harrisburg Gun Show in Dec. Early Christmas present for me. :D

    The jetfire is a suprisingly good shooter for such a diminutive pistol.

    What little sights there are take a little getting used to. Once I got a good point of aim they started to group really
    well though. 8 of the ten rounds in the head area are from the final mag I fired at @ 7yds.

    This is one of my latest that I picked up in a trade. Glock 17 gen 4 with a few mags. Only the 3rd glock I ever owned and the only one I own currently. It was never fired when I got it. I shot 200 out of it already in 4 trips. I'm using a black hawk holster that came with it but I sm planning on ordering a IWB holster when I make it my primary carry gun.

    Picture of my daily carry gear. It changes slightly based on attire and whether I am carrying concealed or not. Left is a Star BKS 9mm. It is my go to carry gun either in a leather pancake holster or the Don Hume IWB holster shown. Right is my colt 1911. The 5" barrel is just not as comfy to carry around for me especially if I'm going to be sitting for a long time. It isn't bad for a couple of hours, but for all day it annoys me and bangs into things. Fishing rig is a GP100 stainless .357. I can't find any pics on my laptop right now so I'll have to make another post for that one.

    Never really was a Glock fan, but I can't really find fault in one as a carry gun. I don't think something the size of a G17 in an IWB holster would work to well for me. My waist line has expanded past that point now:p. I think a hybrid holster like the Supertuck would work pretty well though. Check out Alien Gear Holsters. I've heard good reviews from a few people who actually have them and they are around half the price of the Supertuck.

    Alien gear is one of the brands I have been looking into and I like their price points. I'm not a Glock fanatic myself really as I think some improvement can still be made to the design of the guns. For a winter carry gun though I think the G17 is somewhat the Honda Accord if the Glock Fanboys don't mind me saying so. I have only carried it about a dozen or so times now and it fits the bill for in the winter. I say it is like a honda because it will get you from point A to B without doing anything great or anything terrible. To me it seems like a nice middle of the road carry gun which fits very nicely inside of an inner pocket on my new winter jacket without any printing once so ever. I am a bigger guy so for me this is a huge plus. I'll get a photo up here of my XDm 45 that I really like for winter carry when I can wear the heavier clothing.

    I like that little Beretta and it look's like it is a good shooter too. That would be one that I would be practicing with and carrying during the summer time.

    It might get sometime in a pocket holster. I have an LCP that I pocket carry as a BUG or when I really need to be discreet now. I kinda like this better actually. I need to get a few hundred rounds through it to see if it is reliable enough.

    For this summer I am considering picking up something like the LCP that will be a easier for me to carry. Last summer I relied on my XDM 9mm and wanted to purchase a smaller carry gun but never got around to it.

    Here is my latest carry gun that I am breaking in. Picked this one up in a trade with a buddy of mine. It's a Springfield XDM in 45 ACP. I'm starting to fall in love with this one but I think cone summer she's gonna be a safe queen. . image.jpg

    I have an lcp. It's a good little pocket pistol. Personally, if I was going to get something similar in size now I would look at the Kahr cm or pm 9. They are only marginally larger, 9mm is cheaper to shoot and packs a little more punch. If you are really sold on 380 then the p380 is the same size as an lcp and has a much better trigger imho. You might want to give them a look.

    I am not that big of a 380 fan to be honest. Owned them and sold them. I am more of a revolver guy just because I like the magnum calibers that are available. For personal defense, for me, 9mm is the smallest I would care to go. I am a 10mm fan and enjoy shooting revolvers. I have and do own a couple 45's and have been kicking the idea around of Springfields new subcompact in 45.

    I could never really get into the xd line. Just not for me, although I couldn't ever fault anyone for choosing one. I'm more of an all metal fan anymore more. I caught the 1911 bug a while back :D. 10mm is definitely in the future for me though. I'd really like to get a Delta Elite one of these days. If you're a big 10mms fan I know EAA makes a witness compact model in 10mm. I got to handle the polymer version at gander here a while back and it is comparable to the small xd's in size, a little thicker I believe. Personally I would probably prefer the steel version, especially in something like 10mm.
    Just throwing ideas out there. I get around to a lot of gun shops and shows and I might have a little bit of a problem. I swear I can stop any time though :p.

    Yes please do, I love me some Springfields
    Very nice protection. What model glock is that gem? I think we are gonna need TWD thread here on the forum but I must say after last night's episode I have mixed emotion's. I kind of expected a lot more, especially starting out. I was looking for something to transpire fast like it did in the season premier but after some thought this episode wasn't set up for that. I was surprised to see Tyree get killed off on the following episode from Beth.

    That's my G19 with a 33round mag.

    I liked lastnight's episode, but I'm not one that's looking at this show as all action and killing. The primary focus of the show is the drama and how each character gets through the world dealing with the loss of loved ones. Tyreese was plagued by inner demons through out his time on the show, and this episode was showing the closure for him "making right" with his demons.
