    Here's a stock for a Remington 700 in Myrtle wood from accurate innovations has the aluminum bedding in the stock not one of my favorite looking stocks however it's very nice I'm more of a checkered pattern fan than the carving. The stock was too nice to pass up

    Glad you posted that Voere. I saw myrtlewood being offered in a Fajen catalog and was intrigued by it. Always wanted to try a custom myrtle wood stock. Considering building a couple of custom bolt-action rifles in the next few years and may revive a search for a myrtle wood stock.

    Myrtle wood is interesting. Just curious what calibers will be your choice?

    Something in 6.5 with an efficient non-magnum case. Probably in plain ol' 6.5X55. I have a VZ 24 action, which is a 98 Mauser design.

    Also have a 1918 vintage double-heat treat 1903 Springfield action and already have an exhibition grade black walnut stock for it. Always thought I'd build it up as a .35 Whelen. Already have a .375 H&H Magnum so am having a difficult time justifying that choice of caliber.

    You know, one of the advantages of such a long barrel on the 50 BMGs is that the blast is farther away from you. Ma Deuce muzzle 70" away...fine. Barrett muzzle 58" away...good but you feel it. Bullpup? Shit. 44" away. Don't care what your wearing, its gonna ring your bell.

    Here's my carbine...muzzle 36" away. Even with ear plugs plus earmuffs, the concussion still rattles your bones.

    Of the two, for me, definitely the 92. The US military didn't use them (FS92) all those years for nothing, but either one would be a great gun I'd imagine. Can you try them both out at a range and make a better informed decision?

    Well I already have a 92D and I know that the 92X shoots similarly, so no worries there. But I fear that it will not be much better than my 92D as an EDC due to the frame style. I watched a ton of reviews on the PX4 Compact, I think I've made my decision.

    If you have a 92D I would go for the PX4 Storm.
    Will you be allowed to carry it?
    What do you do about the 10 round magazines being considered "High Capacity"?

    I'm retired LEO here in NYC, so I believe I am exempt. I'll talk it over with the shop from where I am buying it and see what I have to do.

    That's good. If I were limited 7 round mags I would be carrying a .45ACP with a 4" barrel and factory cut down grip, or even a 1911 Officer's model (miss my Kimber Compact CDP and all of it's MIM parts).

    I was going to make a snarky reply, like you should be lobbying to have the arbitrary magazine limits repealed, but I'm sure you're already working on it.

    I had the PX4 for a while, but for some reason never found it as ergonomically comfortable as the 92 style grip. Then again these days my EDC is actually back to my trusty Colt, so magazine limits aside, I tend to lean towards the 1911 argument myself.

    Consider me a firearms fan. While I’ll admit my fav brand are my trusty Glocks, I am into several brands as well. Having picked up my first HK last year, I have grown to like them very much. My VP9 might be the best pistol I have ever shot. 7DFD8900-437B-4569-B900-19DD78496C57.jpeg I’m also a Kimber fan and love the micro 9 series of pistols. The Sig 938 is also fantastic F4AE8875-CF09-40BC-B0F8-DAD98A3661BA.jpeg For me S&W is my revolver brand of choice and my fav among them is the 686, followed by the trusty ole 38 snubby in the 442 model.

    Working on restoring a mid 1700s Swallow of London double shotgun. Converted to percussion early 1800s.

    Took several applications of stripper to remove 250yrs of varnish and muck. Much more to do. The barrel bores are clean enough(rough but no muck or rust) and the locks work so ideally i'd like to get it to a presentful firing condition again. I'll bet it hasn't been fired for 150yrs.

    Pre 1800 doubles are pretty rare. This one has silver bits in the stock, and remnants of gold inlay on the barrel. I can find nothing at all on Swallow of London as a maker so if any of y'all know anything, I would love to hear.

    Tru Ivory imitations on the left (in my opinion the best faux ivory), genuine preban elephant middle, and the last is interior Siberian Mammoth tusk. The mammoth looks incredible on a blued pistol. It has the brownish yellow-tone of well aged elephant, very sturdy too and I’m using on my shooter. I just got them and really pleased.
