This is one of my favourites. It's definitely the most used of my rifles.

On the left, my brothers Savage 93R17 BVSS.
On the right, my 16" shortened, suppressed Savage 93R17 BRJ. Topped with a Leupold VX1 4-12.



It was very hard to find a picture of this without dead bunnies in it! This particular rifle is in quadruple figures for bunny kills and same for possum kills. It's lasting very well considering how badly it gets treated (it's a farm gun).

The barrel ends at the suppressor (it's a can). Legally as short as it can be over here.



I love my Savages (particularly the smaller caliber ones). Awesome guns. Not as much attention to detail as the CZ 452/455... but they're accurate and tough.

I watched "Longmire" on Netflix today, where the main character carries a 1911.  So I get out one of my 1911's and carry it OWB.  It didn't take me long to remember why I don't do that.  Those suckers and big and heavy compared to today's 9mm pocket pistols.  Some guys no doubt carry a 1911 on a daily basis, but you gotta commit to it.  I'll be sticking with something small, light and spicy in the pocket - Kahr PM9, S&W 442, etc.

And btw, those cannons are awesome.  I saw some revolutionary war cannons being fired, and its difficult to describe just how loud those suckers are.

Is any one here familiar with Single Action Shooting Society? http://www.sassnet.com/ any members here? Nate, You definantley have the arsenal To join! I'm not, but I support their values and am a fan of the sport. I never miss the annual "end of trail" chapionship here in NM.  I got to shoot some of the coolest firearms in history there. An 1874 Model Gatling Gun, and a 1917 Browning Water Cooled.

Yeah the Mountain Howitzer while light and could be easily moved about, lacked in range and not be able to hit a large barn. Most of the South at that time where using mainly old smooth bores. Didn't have the nice newer rifled ones. Still, what a rush to shoot one.

I'm sure it was a rush!  I've helped serve a 12-pounder Napoleon once.  Very cool. :tu:

As to Confederate artillery, their biggest issue was a lack of reliable fuses.  At Gettysburg for example, most of the shells fired ahead of Pickett's Charge passed over the Union lines without exploding.  It did little to soften up the Union positions, with disasterous results......

Biggest gun I've ever fired was one of these:


A medieval breach loading gun.  I've got some excellent friends. :D

PS, not my pic, but I believe it's the same gun.

Working on a Grendel inc. P12 tonight. Ive never messed with one of these before, this was the precursor to Kel Tec. Pretty cool for conceal carry I guess, but kinda cheaply made. They only made them from 92 to 94 I guess. I like polymer frames, but the plastic recoil spring guide is a FAIL, haha. Well its lasted this long so I guess I shouldn't say much.

Oh notice the belly button lint that came out of the slide?? Guy was saying that it was jamming a lot, I'm gonna ask if he kept it in his shirt by his stomach haha

A functional Grendle P-12! Now that is rare. Any luck finding proper stripper clips for it? I've heard GI 5.56 clips work sorta.

The head engineer at Grendle is the founder of Kel-tec. There is a reason there are a lot of similiarities.

You certainly don't see Grendels all that often!  Very cool!  :tu:

@ironraven - the P-12 used a detachable box magazine.  The P-10 used stripper clips, and yes the clips for M16 magazines would work.

I've always loved the simple reliability of the .38 Smith and Wesson revolver. This old bodyguard with pinned barrel is from the 1980's, and shoots great. Surprisingly accurate for it's size.



This old boy has been with me since 1972. Been a lot of places since then. Camping/backpacking trips, canoe trips, cross country touring.


For when it absolutely has to be very concealed…

No corkscrew, but they do have a bayonet and laser for them. Not to mention all the different belt buckles.

And it appears that you can use the bayonet and the folding grip at the same time!  :D

I'm not jealous, honest :(

I shot one years ago and there a lovely rifle, and if I remember rightly (was at least 15 years ago) hardly any recoil due to the weight :)

TBH Mike,I hadn't thought much about the recoil,but yes,your not wrong. I was more aware if the much older ergonomics,and much heavier action. I've fired bolt actions before,but they've either been little Toz from Russia or full on precision rifles like Anschultz .

I did tell the owner he'd for-filled one of my small life ambitions. The kid who grew up reading Warlord and Commando finally shot a Lee Enfield!
