I'm still kind of new to the telltale forums and figured I'd start a new thread for fellow gun lovers. I also wanted to get insode everyone elses head. So tell me everyone; What have you got, what do you like in your guns, what's your favorite gun, etc.

Thanks

    Let me repost this so it won't be buried by travesties.

    @Rather Dashing said: No idea how I was not informed of this thread. Maybe I should read the directory. Oh well, here's what I have at current:

    This one is my very favorite gun. I call it Vera. /Jayne
    It's a WASR 10/63 GP with Romanian wood furniture that my fiancee got me for Christmas last year. The rifle itself I got from my Dad for being the total opposite of a whiner after a surgery two years back.

    Next is my EDC, a Smith and Wesson Sigma 40.

    Finally, tomorrow I'm picking up a new firearm - an RIA M1911 GI in .45, naturally.

    I intend to have it replace my Sigma and possibly end up selling the former pistol for...
    entertainment money in Berkeley. Yeah...

    Note that these aren't my pics, I'm just too lazy to take any right now and lost the old pics.

    I'm getting this engraved on my M1911.



    I to own a WASR 10. I'm amazed by its reliability. (which is strange for most WASR's.) How about yours?

    I'm thinking about picking up a kimber 1911 myself. (Most likely a warrior model or if I can find one for the right price, and Gold combat.) Any suggestions?

    My WASR is great aside from a slightly canted front sight and some fit and finish issues. Still, it's the sort of gun I'd imagine would work even if I left it in storage for a decade or two with no maintenance. It's a damn fine gun.

    As for 1911s, I tend to stay away from Kimber due to price, mostly. That being said, if you can afford them they make an excellent carry sized 1911. I have found that Rock Island (Armscor) makes a pistol just as good for much less. If you do end up going budget, avoid Auto Ordinance if at all possible.

    They have "good" and "bad" periods depending on who owns the company at the time, and the delineation of these periods is a frequent topic of passionate debate in the Internet firearms community.

    Back to Kimber, though, they tend to make more modern looking 1911s. I've found these to be like the AKs with rails on them, ie; not my taste. Therefore, I can't tell you too much about them. If you ask specific questions, though, I'm sure I can come up with something.



    Why the hell am I not a gun dealer?

    Fuck.... I was wrong.

  • @Noname215 said: Fuck.... I was wrong.



    It's true. I'm from Georgia. My old man taught me how to shoot when I was in the third grade and drilled me on gun safety even before that. Firearms have been a family tradition in my line since time immemorial and I firmly believe that the Second Amendment was created to safeguard the other nine and believe fervently in the Castle Doctrine.

    Now, that said, I am also a pot smoking (never around my guns!) liberal. Go figure, huh? Assumptions can be a dangerous thing to go about making.

    I don't know. Why the hell aren't you? If you worked as a gun salesman, you'd probably get discounts on guns as well.

    I have a friend who owns a Rock Island and says that, while it does shoot good, the build quality can vary. (His front sight flew off once while he was shooting.) I think the modern looking 1911's are really nice, but perfer "old school" look. Originally I was going to buy a Springfield GI, and that is still an option I'm considering.

    By the way; Nice to meet another Georgian

    Georgia? Nice. Northeast Georgia, here.

    Yeah, I had heard that about RIA as well, which just reinforces my policy of handling the firearm before I buy it. My local gun shop is typically fine with a field strip, component inspection and reassembly. If I can do these three things, I can get a good sense of whether or not a firearm is worth my money.

    I've heard a lot of good things about Springfields. If you can afford it, go for it.

  • Also, I got my 1911 today. Shoots like a dream. A wet dream.
