    Guns

    A thread like this seems to fit the flow of the forum.

    My wife and I each received a custom Glock 22 for Christmas from her father this past year, in addition to a shotgun her mother used as a patrol officer, which he'd been restoring since it was heavily damaged in a collision about ten years ago.

    It may seem crass, but I was kind of hoping he'd give us one of his 1873 Winchester repeaters.
    I've always been a history buff, and the Gun that Won the West has hardly any recoil.

    What do ya'll have/use/like?

    I really like my Desert Eagle 1911. Just really fun to shoot.

    I also like my Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 mag, but I haven't shot that one much. Ammo costs money, darnit!

    My father-in-law was kind enough to load us up with about a thousand rounds for the pistols, and nearly five hundred shotgun shells.

    Now if only gun ranges weren't so expensive.

    I still like my .357 magnum Ruger Security Six --- with only six shots, you have to be more accurate than having the ability to spray 14 rounds quickly.

    That's what's fun about living in Texas and having a "big back yard".

    I have no guns. Not because I don't want one, but because I am too financially strapped to buy one or to actually go somewhere to use it...

    Of course, I'm specifically referring to my back yard in which I can legally 'open' or 'concealed carry' just about any weapon I want to, and in which it would be safe to do so even if an errant bullet left the muzzle at maximum velocity.
