2016 VW Passat w/technology; only 50 miles on the car. While I am very pleased with it, I would rather have my old 2104 Jetta GLI. I was a victim in a 4 car wreck on December 28, and we struck another car at 70mph. I was knocked out and my son received a small cut on his finger. We're grateful to be alive.

Picked up a Russian SKS D letter gun. This brings the current total to 3 and i really am impressed so far. The fit and finish is diffidently better than my norinco and slightly better than the yugo. The trigger is hands down better than both.

my condolences.
Hahahahahahahahahah

The road to 1,000 was quite a boring journey for the Glock 43, Taurus Slim and Walther PPS, which continued to run with five-minute breaks between strings of 100 rounds. All three evaluators rotated and pushed these pistols through several rapid-fire sessions at near-80-degree temperatures. After the 1,000-round mark was met, Eric Poole decided to push all three pistols through one final program he calls the “typewriter test.” This drill draws from different loads and bullet weights staggered in each magazine — usually leftover ammunition from other tests. Though all loads were of Winchester’s manufacture, the audible report heard through ear muffs is akin to a typewriter smacking paper. Springs and small parts must instantly react to the changing pressures resulting from different loads.These last 50 rounds did nothing to affect the performance of these pistols. The Glock 43, Taurus 709 Slim and Walther PPS all successfully pushed to 1,050 rounds fired.

Every tool has a purpose. I tried all 3, and found I liked the trigger and ergonomics on the Taurus the best. That and the price was nice.

(3) 5.56 build on another Anderson lower again from group buy, Velocity trigger from the group buy, 18" SS Wylde barrel, Primary Arms scope

To paraphrase one of my favorite SNL skit's: "Guess what? I got a fever! And the only prescription . . is more builds!"

New 20" 54R Vepr. Buffed the stock a bit and some really subtle tiger pattern started to come to the surface. Did a bit of tru-oil finish to accentuate it a bit.

Yep it has tech sights! Came with the originals as well. I won't be able to fire it for a few weeks, but the sight picture feels natural when shouldering it. I'm on the hunt for some inert grenades or a golf ball launcher for the grenade launcher.

He chopped a few inches off and put a pistol grip on it. Honestly, it's pretty ergonomic. I like it.

I got it off a friend. He bought it cheap and tried making it into a compact hunting rifle/something his gf would enjoy shooting. It didn't go as well as he planned so he sold it to me for dirt cheap. I have an ATI Monte Carlo stock on the way

Picked up on the weekend from my LGS: Dan Wesson .22. Monson build, probably 1978-1979 as it's a low-low s/n. Pretty good condition, clean barrel and cylinders (well, after a few CLP sessions). A few varnish-like droppings on the upper frame (but its not rust or scale) as if someone never stored it but left it out on a work bench and it has some light scaling around the rear sight mount. Otherwise, very good condition grip and scratch-free frame with minimal holster or corner wear.

Very nice! 952 right? Friend of mine who's a big S&W shooter/collector has 2 952 models. One like yours and one with the long slide. He's let me shoot them and the triggers are unreal! I don't think they were much more than 3lbs. Also fit my hand very well. Congrats.
