I checked it out but I will get the Kimber. I can get it for less than the emp.

I bought a Kimber micro carry for now but will get the ultra carry 2 soon. The micro feels great and can be put anywhere.

Kimber is never a bad choice, it's only a difficult choice because of the price..... but you do get a lot of gun for the money.

My pistol is getting a nice 'carry' patina on it, I didn't buy it as a collectors safe queen, I bought it to protect my life. DGAS what the value of it is in 50 years.

I really wanted to buy the ultra carry 2 but I really didn't want to spend $1,450 for both guns. I will buy it in a month or two. They had it listed for $800 In the store. Not a bad price at all.

It looks like yours had a baby

Nice Kimber. I like my little .380's. They are so easy to carry. I just got finished making a holster for this Mustang.

Since I was taking pics thought I'd show off the newest member of the family.... Her name is Noreen BN308, I just call her Sweety

This is my first AR10 type, I like the Noreen for it's side-charging and Shilen barrel. Nice base to start with. First mod is Vortex scope, Atlas bipod, then fire-control group... thought I might just order springs & polish it up, if I don't like the result I can swap it with another rifle & get a Geissele or JP single stage maybe

Cold weather shooting gloves....does a thin pair of gloves that keep your hands warm exist? I have a set of Blackhawk ones....they're alright but I am outside for LONG periods of time and they don't last....

Liner gloves, with a good pair over, till you're ready to shoot..... or keep your hands in your pockets lol

Thin & warm just doesn't seem to exist, but I've been pleased with anything with thinsulate.

the problem is i cant keep then in my pockets (the Navy isnt a fan of that) and i cant take them off when im ready to shoot. they would be worn all day (12 hours) and i still need some dexterity. its a problem for sure. what i need seems to not exist...thin warm glove.

so i guess i need more of a patrol glove, not just a shooting glove. but the thinner the better as long as its warm.

I bought my son a Ruger American Rimfire 22 today as his Christmas present. I also bought myself a S&W 45 for grins and giggles, I just didn't tell my wife! We are going to the range Thanksgiving morning to shoot them both. I have to wait until Monday to pick up mine, thanks NYS.

I have added about a dozen 1911's since this photo was taken (what can I say, I got a little "1911 crazy" for a while here recently!), but here's some of my smoke wagons. We got any issues with these? LOL

A few of the newer 1911's, all cerakote modified for personalization (a result of my wife saying they're all starting to look alike... solved that issue fast!).

Lost them all in a tragic boating accident? I know a few folks that also lost entire collections that way. Funny though, they only lost the guns they bought new and filled out a Form 4473. Texas being a free state, we buy and sell firearms at garage sales all the time.

Janet can eat me as she has no say so about any of my NFA weapons/items. In fact, the FEDS sold me the tax stamp.

The FEDERAL government (if your STATE allows it) will let you own a tank, 105mm Howitzer, rocket launcher, machine gun, silencer, etc for the sum of $200 to pay for the tax stamp. If you want an AOW, a $5 tax stamp applies. Most folks do not know their state may not allow them to own an AR, but they can own an F16.

Thanks Bill, for showing all the non-believers a 331" small block Chevy powered car could outrun a 426 Hemi powered car. Thanks for the tube chassis, the splay valve small block cylinder heads, the strut front suspension, and the dry sump oiling system. I applaud your becoming the once king of the NA motors builders. Most of all, thanks for the racing memories and inspiring many young guys to follow in your footsteps.

When it's time to be quiet, the HK.45CT for up close. The Remington .308 has a can for the long stuff.
Thanks to some Texas [politicians with common sense - we can now legally carry a concealed handgun AND an automatic knife. How absurd to be licensed to carry a handgun, but a certain knife is illegal? I can now carry my Al Mar Auto-SERE!!!!!



When only a large caliber will do:
A Ruger Redhawk .44 MAG
A S&W 329PD .44 MAG - this is a 29 ounce CANNON that will hurt you. Bear country peace of mind.
A CZ American dangerous game rifle in .375 H&H magnum



My Texas BBQ rig
a mint 80s era stainless steel Champion - a few SA Custom Shop features
D.M. Bullard of Azle, Texas works VERY well with exotic leather. This is a full elephant rig in vintage bark color - not cheap, but worth every penny:




When you need a knife - it should be rugged.
Texans can carry fixed blade knives with a blade no longer than 5.5"
My Liontribe Designs Tiger Shark in W2 tool steel. The heavy 4.25" bladed monster weighs almost a pound.

Ha, I have this guy's baby brother. .25 Auto. It's a cute little sucker.
Colt's original advertisement read "Designed to fit into a gentleman's vest pocket."

Mine needs some smithy work, though -- the safety slides completely freely, there is no detent at all.
