Latest addition: my youngest daugther (age 23) is getting interested in shooting regularly and is considering competing with me next year in Cowboy action. Due to the length of her (artificial) finger nails she can't use a Winchester M97 effectively, so I bought her a Spanish 12 gauge side by side. I plan to cut it back to 20 inches and install a removeable choke.

Those fine looking rifles sure make that black gun look UGG-LY by comparison. That Garand does have some beautiful wood on it.
That center Ruger looks just like mine, except for the grips.

Latest purchase for World War II re-enacting matches a January 1919, US Rifle Model 1917 in .30-06. The bore is a bit dark but the rifling is sharp.

Eddystone, this week I bought a Remington P14 in .303. It appears to be in a bit of rough shape but I haven't dropped the hammer on it yet. I'm hoping that the accuracy is there.

Hey, Garand . You are a Man after my own heart. If I had the funds to buy a digital camera I would share mine. Sorry for you and all the rest but all my money goes for more firearms and ammo.
By the way, I picked up my sporterised Eddystone for less than a 100. The main reason I bought it was because it had been rebarreled for 300 win mag. It had been in a garage for many years and was ugly but with a bright bore. After beadblasting and parkerizing, and a Boyds pepper laminate JRS stock I have one fine Elk killing machine. I hope someday I can show them all off.

Well, I've gone an done it!! I've found another excuse to buy firearms. I'm now into "nostalgia" guns. They are models of guns that I've owned before. The first handgun that I ever purchased 34 years ago was a Llama .22LR "Especial". Got another one yesterday!

i think the top revolver is a 1917 S&W in .45 ACP. Colt made them, too.
Yep, nice collection.

Blast from the past, off all the firearm pictures I posted at the time I only still have a dozen of them left.
