    Not a gun but thought this was cool. I guess Sam himself was handing these out in London back in 1851 at the Crystal Palace - what would be the first world's fair. The Colt booth was apparently pretty cool.

    That's really fascinating! Schwag from 1851, the Crystal Palace, Sam Colt, it's like a movie!

    pix817184359.jpg Finally found a Marlin Camp .45 to go with my Marlin Camp 9. Won it on Gunbroker, should be here in a day or 2. I have a cowbell metal target that's just waiting for this to ring it! These truck guns are a lot of fun for just plain old Saturday afternoon plinking. ********* Just a quick update the .45 arrived and I picked it up and did the transfer at 4 Seasons on Thursday. I hope to get to the range today or Sunday and give it a try out!

    I picked up this 03 tacoma today for a project/dog hauler, i was originally looking for an FJ or a newer tacoma but this one was tastefully modded and meticulously cared for by its previous owner. its pretty much setup exactly how i want it, but im going to fab a mount for my tepui sky 3 roof top tent over the bed. I drove it up Mount Ord north of phoenix today, tons of fun, I cant wait to spend more time in this buggy.

    Got my first SBR stamp approved today, so I bought a 12.5" upper for my CGAR.

    Picked up a used (basically new, not many rounds fired by my eye) M&P15-22 for my wife for her first Mother's Day. We came across this one a few weeks ago and decided go back this past weekend to take it home with us. She's wanted one for a while so what better present to get her for Mother's Day than a .22 rifle?

    For myself, I added a No. 4 Mk. 1 to go with my SMLE. I've wanted an example for a while however it hasn't been something I've been actively seeking out. 1944 Maltby that went through the FTR process in 1948 at Fazakerley. She's in really nice shape with a mint bore....might not be the most collectible Lee Enfield out there but she should be a good shooter.

    There were the only 2. From a place in Maine, they appear to be new no carbon on them. Usually they are all nasty and beat up.

    Technically not a new acquisition, but I just got it back from being hard chromed which gave it a new lease on life so I'm counting it.

    And yes, I put an orange plastic insert in the front sight of my Colt, S&W-style. What are you going to do about it? [laugh] If Colt could put them on Pythons I figured what the hell.

    Nice! Love me some hard chrome. My HC'd 1911 has been holding up well to holster wear.
