If I ever got to the point that I needed it for it's ultimate purpose then it's already a bad day.
If I may ask, about how much does something like that run?
A model 1911 is on my wish list. I will have one someday. I love the way they shoot. Big caliber but still controllable
About $120. It is also available in a half serrated and fully serrated blade. I like the plain edge though. Looks more elegant.
The second handgun I ever shot was a Wilson Combat 1911, IIRC it was in Tactical Elite trim.
Ruined me for anything else for a long time. That was a nice gun.
If I had larger hands I'd take a good look at a 10mm even though it's kind of an 'oddball' caliber. Two-handed shooting would work, but I like for a handgun to fit & feel natural in one hand.
Forgot to post the new (over a year ago?) kid on the block: The little woman's Kahr P9 9x19mm.
For now, it's both her carry gun and competition gun. Flat single stack (7+1) with a long but light DAO trigger. Bud-dah smooth. Highly recommended pistol. Gonna get a couple for myself now.
1.5" titanium instructor belt by TheWilderness. Kydex holster by RKBA. Mag pouches by Center of Mass. Happy yellow dump pouch by Maxpedition. Two dozen factory mags by Ouch, My Wallet.
Right now she's popping 8" plates at 25 yards out of the holster. Gotta find her something bigger (higher capacity) so she can start stomping dudes at USPSA.
Only thing better than rolling up to the range and being the best hombre there is rolling up to the range and having your woman out-shoot every dude there.
Don't worry, I'm sure Magpul with release imitation kahr mags soon that cost 50% of the OEM's price and are 10% as reliable. Problem solved !
Picked up the woman's USPSA (competition shooting) pistols today. H&K P30L 9x19mm, V1 LEM (Light DAO). She's going to kick everyone's ass.
My photos are coming, but it may take a little time. I've got 51 assorted firearms to photograph. I'm going to try to group them into five shots: handguns, rifles (semi-auto), rifles (all other), shotguns, and finally, NFA firearms (machine guns and suppressed rifles.) It'll take a while to empty out the safe and organize things.
Today marks five years since I bought a sword at the Maryland Renaissance Festival.
I had coveted a sword of my own since middle school. I bought one as an unsupervised adult with a debit card, and I have never regretted it.
Now all I need is to find someone to train me on using it properly and effectively. Cause you know I'm gonna need it someday. Sure, it may very well be a poorly crafted piece of shit, but I don't particularly care. It's better than nothing.... I think?
(Photos of other knives and shit coming sometime whenever.)
Cool. Are you mentally prepared to stab/slash someone and have their potentially diseased blood get into your eyes/mouth?
And, theoretically, I am mentally prepared for that.
I bought a Ruger PC takedown carbine (9mm) a couple months ago, as an emergency survival rifle for my 4x4.
I put an EOTech EXPS2 Holosight on it,
and got a nondescript breakdown case for it that doesn't scream "GUN!" The rifle will take Glock 19 magazines, so I keep four loaded 30-round mags in the case with the rifle and I'm good to go!
Good to be prepared in the PNW right now.
Yeah, especially if you have to drive through downtown Portland these days!
