Nice weapons collections fellas...here's a couple new additions to mine!
That little XDS is becoming very popular.
Nice. I still have my original German made, '88 Sig 226 K-cote. Mint condition.
Great every day carry pistol for sure!
For those who know these things my latest is a S&W Model 52-2. About the best target automatic S&W ever made. Still accepted for Olympic and International events even though it has not been made since '93.
Good to see you! I just got my soccer timer back and was thinking of you.
I have a couple WWII pistols posted here somewhere.
Pics of the tacticals with their respective timepieces...
I do miss the "Soccer Timer" in fact right now no Chronographs. Gave my Son my Breitling Chronomat as a graduation present from college as well as a 629..
Been using and wearing an Eterna Monterey GMT for the trips to the "other places" Djibouti, Romania and some of the other odd places I go to.
A fellow archer! Great! Do you have any bows that don't have "training wheels" as we recurve guys call them?
I've shot a little bit here and there...
From a while back during training...
And knives...I have tried very hard to avoid getting into these too deeply, as it can be far more expensive a hobby than watches are. I only have one custom knife - not an expensive one but very well made. Hard to get a really good shot of the MOP...
Such an interesting thread
I've pretty much given up on the idea of owning any firearms in Aus. Without steering this towards politics, lets just say it takes far too much effort and I don't like how the police can show up at your house for an inspection (at any time). We didn't renew our registrations or memberships when they last came up.
I was aware of this before moving here 9 years ago from Canada. I came for the beaches and better global location
Purchasing a nice little slingshot on Ebay did cheer me up. It's quite useful for destroying cans/bottles/noisy birds
black talon bullets are NOT illegal.
Now your talking Will do a post when back from work travel

Curious if anyone's interested in checking out my new website firearm related and giving me their thoughts?
Don't plan to launch till July but this has been in the works for a few months.
Well give me some feedback on website, and pricing and I'll answer what questions I can.
Actually quitting my job at the end of the month so im all ears, this has to succeed and I hope I'm doing everything needed to get me there.
Website is Arc-Defense.com
The pictures are some of our products and the rest are just fillers until I can get a photo shoot scheduled here later this month.
love guns, unfortunately nyc . i suppose if i was somewhere else id have more guns than watches
We don't really do firearms here in the UK. When I was a teenager I was fascinated by guns but a stint in the Army reserve soon cured me of that. I do however like historical weapons and as I've mentioned in another thread, have an interest in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. Here's my model 1862 Dreyse needle gun, the second iteration of the M1841 ditto and the world's first bolt action rifle. The needle is missing but when fired would have passed through the main charge in its consumable paper cartridge, ignited a percussion cap at the base of the bullet and set off the main charge. Strangely there was no scabbard for the bayonet; on the march it was carried fixed, which must have been a bit inconvenient.
The M1841 won the Austro-Prussian War of 1866 by decimating the Austrians who had to stand to refill their muzzle loaders, whilst the Prussians could fire three times as fast from prone. Other European powers took note and by 1870 the French had developed the superior Chassepot, but the Prussians won anyway by virtue of their rifled artillery and making fewer many mistakes than the French.
wow...had no clue, thanks for the history lesson
Cool stuff @Edward53! I'm not big on firearms either but I can definitely see the appeal in owning historical pieces. I guess the "vintage" gene transcends just watch collecting.
