    Firearms for watches...this is getting super interesting. I'm relatively new to forum, trying to read through all the pertinent stickies and earn my way into the potential buyers class/ club/ group...firearms threads might make that a swifter process.

    What revolver is that? I was trying to get through the whole thread first cant resist. I've been interested in a ruger single 6 or single 9 for years, which is far from a major purchase, but I have concentrated all firearms funds on things we might not be able to get forever...and that I am interested in shooting , of course.

    These “vintage” wheel guns are unfortunately making me think I need one again

    Oh, you do.

    Mostly I like that my wife or daughter, with very little experience, could point and pull, and even if they missed, the noise would probably thwart all but the bravest or craziest assailants. But at less than 20 ft aiming at center mass, don't kid yourself, a .38 is plenty to stop a human. All the discussion about needing .45 for stopping power. Cmon. A .22 is sufficient to stop anyone not using PCP, and only the criminals on Starsky and Hutch are using that stuff. (Although I sometimes wonder if OF's own Maddog might be partaking when I see his photos.)

    You in Ann Arbor? Lived there a while, a while ago...don't mean to pry if that's not shared info, but I know EoTech used to be there...

    I like the glock 40 also. So much utility and fun. Gaston Glock had a number of patents and products before the G17 - well, he had 16...IIRC, the first Glock handgun was his 17th patent. Also made toasters, etc.

    There are a number if things one can do to significantly improve the stock trigger- shorten reset, reduce pull weight and distance, etc., etc. That's among the best things about Glocks - reliable stock, comparatively inexpensive parts, endless modifications, simple to do.

    Nice. I had a kahr (steel frame) mk9, early model - yes, the slide cracked- they replaced it n/c, first pistol I sold, just couldn't hit anything with it. That's my concern with shorter slide 1911s, as well as reliability of function. I know, many concerns unfounded, but I still have them. I'm still the guy that got a lemon Omega AT bnib from an AD. Talk about gun shy...that was my first real watch and it only lasted 4 days! Trying to get my post count up and try again here, though .

    By the time I started on cans, the hope of increased/ simplified access reared up, then I moved to a place where I can't just shoot from my back porch regardless, so it became less of a priority. Was interested in exactly what you listed - 45 (ammo is subsonic already), 22lr, 30. Will get there someday .

    People seem to prefer them over the III's...I have only seen a 3 in a shop, though, don't know why.

    Completely new topic to above but wondering if someone might just be able to help me. I picked up an incomplete Benjamin air pistol 177 recently and decided to see if maybe I can get it up and running again. It's a front pump and the pressure seems okay. The trigger lock works and it's all complete except for the firing bolt. Anyone have any idea where I might find this item or even where to look. I am Dublin Ireland based so these items not so easy to find.

    I don't dispute your reference to terms, but I prefer the term suppressor, as "silencer" convinces those who want to ban all things gun-ish that they are evil tools used to get away with endless murders...not understanding or admitting that mant suppressors in the states are recorded on a form 1 or 4 for individual ownership, and ballistic info is retained, making them more likely to be more quickly traceable to an individual or through a chain of ownership...for all that does.

    I am not exactly sure where you could find one. I can pull mine apart though and take photos and measurements of the bolt if you think that would help.

    Photos of what exactly I am looking for would be great. Just how powerful are these little air guns. The push pressure seems like a bicycle tube type pump. Is it worth repairing I wonder. Any and all assistance would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

    Isn´t it about good time to close this thread?

    Maybe you guys can start a separate forum for guns?
