Guns? Bueller?

Surprised to see no threads in the lounge about guns. Anyone else with interest in them?

While the Glock 23 is in CO with the s1k, i picked up a springfield xd40. dang nice shooting gun. Some people say it kicks more, but it didn't seem to next to the .44 mag

I took the xd and .44 to the range Sunday. If anyone in TX is thinking about getting your CHL, this is the course of fire required. Shows a little about each gun. pretty jazzed, 249 w/ the springfield, about what i usually get with the glock, but you can see how much better the grouping with the 8"+ barrel of the .44 is, and my first perfect 250.

.44 video
XD .40 video

PS.anyone know how to make the youtube window actually show up in the post?

I'm a gun nut, used to collect but now I'm down to just the stuff I really, really like. I love Python's, wish I had an Anaconda or a hand gun that would take out a Bear if need be.

Have some on-duty weapons and a for few things for Zombies too.

Shooting is another of my expensive hobbies.

Glock 19, 23
Sig 229
Guncrafter Industries American in .45
LMT MRP
Larue Stealth
Larue OBR
Benelli M3

It is fun to go shooting, collect, and add excessories to them.

Nice. had a FL CWP from 2004-2010 in Jacksonville myself. Lived off Bert Rd. in Arlington where i had my bike shop for a few years, which you probably know is far from being Ponte Vedra to say the least.

I bought a SS anaconda years ago on a sealed bid from an insurance claim for $261, sold it to my uncle for $400. Unfortunately he shot himself with it. i like my smith, but that colt was a dang nice shooting gun.

how do you carry the 23? i have one of those clips that bolts to my slide for carrying that, but i'm trying a king tuck ITPH for the springfield and see how i like that. too *#%*() hot down here for a coat and shoulder holster!

no, more like self-inflicted fatal head shot. cops took the gun from the scene, not sure whatever happened to it.
