Yeah....Guns , Fishing , and Pentax's....lol. They all go together really well. I seem to be occupied with the .45 caliber variety at the moment. 45-70 Govt , .45 colt , .45Auto......just about anything that has 45 in the title somewhere. Ya never know when a good .45 could come in handy for fishing too ? I call em "Flying Pancakes"........Oooohh....that reminds me of Food !
General Patton is quoted as saying the M1 Garand "is the finest battle implement ever devised." I have to Respectfully disagree. That title goes to the 1911.

+1 on that ! Browning was a brilliant mastermind of Firearms design. To his credit is also another Classic to stand the test of time.....the 1886 Winchester !

Hopefully, no one will try to fry those kids.

Also, I will not buy the K-3 because... it has on-board flash :angrybaby:

Gen Patton liked the one here on the bottom......his gunsmith personally engraved it for my uncle who served as one of Patton's bodyguards during WWII.




The one on top is my Dad's WWII weapon. Both are in excellent condition, but I have never fired either of them. Too large for a concealed carry weapon......for that I prefer a small gun that straps on your ankle.

I sure miss the days over here when we discussed things or genuine importance.....bacon, Velveeta and Spam were worthy topics.
Regards!

Having had that one in hand, I will say that no picture can do it justice.

Holy Smokes ! And I was happy before just to own a couple Ruger SR1911's with Colt cut ejection ports ! Very Nice.

I conceal carry my full size 1911 daily and got used to it. Have noticed the last couple years as I have gotten a bit older that my Butt seems to be shrinking and my pants keep inching down.....lol. I remedied that my smacking it right down the front right side of my drawers... "Steel to Skin"... and tighten my belt a notch ! No more "slippage"....lol. Yes....Cocked-N-Locked now has new meaning carrying this way , but sure keeps me from buying any more holsters !
On the subject of Bacon and Velveeta all is good and still worthy of much discussion.....but the newer Spam gives me a severe headache from all the MSG and tastes like salt....PASS.........Mmmmm....Im thinking of FOOD again....lol

Welcome. I see from your profile your hobbies are photography and guns. Some of us here have the same interest. Heck, I think between the two of us, Racer and I might have a half dozen or so guns.
Way more than than that for me.

But the one I like the best is this. Created by my own hand, for shooting racing cars as they blast by at speeds three times the speed limit. Well, two and a half times the speed limit in South Dakota.

As is on your person presently, correct?
Well, I can only carry so much at one time.

The remainder rest silently in the gun safe.

Nice.

But they left out the best part. You know, where the guys with Pentax gear come storming in and clean house.

Oh yeah.
