Looks good to me, solid cast too!

Man, I've kinda been itching to get a cowboy revolver of some kind, like an 1873 or something...

So, I cancelled my Mosquito purchase and Reed's was happy about it since they screwed up and gave me a much lower price than they should have. Still, it wasn't worth the time and hassle of purchasing it and then trying to resell it, FFL, etc.

And I'd rather save up a bit more and pick up a SP-01 or even a Custom one for a bit more to get the improved sights and trigger action:

I did however, pick up a fun little airsoft gun to plink around with my cousins and it seems to have almost the same recoil as a .22 since it has the heavier spring and metal slide. Surely it's no substitute for the real thing but it'll be fun to screw around with my cousins and I can take it anywhere with me and even shoot it inside if I just HAVE TO shoot. I'm very surprised at how hard those little plastic BBs can hit. It shattered a Sterilite plastic container last night

I'd be really surprised if that Custom was listed on the "safe" roster and legal in CA.

On another note, am I the only one who thinks the SP-01 looks like it has mumps? (CZ pic curtosey Ken Lunde)

The way I see it, I'm destined to purchase a gun (or two) that doesn't live up to Zefflyns beauty standards. Oh well...

Just get a Hi-Power, look at the way it tapers so nicely towards the front.

But I like the tacticool rail on the SP-01 and the P-01...mumps or not. Plus the grip fits my hand well - better than the high power which feels squared like the Glocks and USPs to me...

So, the question is: Why are ugly guns the most comfortable to uhmeebuh? Are his hands ugly too?

Those aren't mumps, they're teef!

uhmeebuh, if you get the standard SP-01 (not the decocker version), I do believe that the folks at Irvington Arms do nice, CA-compliant trigger jobs on 'em...

Too bad you wussed out on the Mosquito - that was your ticket to pretty-gun glory!

So I decided to put a bunch of magazines on ebay and apparently I didn't get the memo that they aren't allowing magazines. I went to auctionarms.com and it was just a bunch of dealers selling mags at fixed prices. Where's a good place to sell mags? (Some mags over 10 rounds so don't say BARF or Calguns.)

If you know which guns they go to, you can search for forums specific to that brand, and post it in their classifieds section. Like for GLOCK magazines, check glocktalk.com. Or just post them on auctionarms for whatever your price is.

I think what Uhmeebuh needs is a Thompson Encore. That way it's everything you will ever possibly need. Need a .308 pistol? No problemo. Need a black powder .50cal? Hang on a sec while I swap this barrel out. Need a .22lr for hunting squirrels after TEOTWAWKI? Easy-peasy. Need a shotgun for HD? Just another easy barrel swap.

Just got back from the range using the Ruger Mark 22.
Started out two handed grip. On a 25 yard target 100% (+/- 15" horizontal and +/- 6" vertical), 70% in the black.
Two handed and braced by sand bag. 25 yard target 100%(+/- 6"). Not as good as usual 100%(+/- 3").
The Rangemaster came by and showed a better trigger finger contact. I was between knuckles contacting the trigger. Rangemaster demonstrated finger tip trigger contact. Also demonstrated one hand hold stance alignment.
Beginner's luck I was getting better hits then two handed sand bag braced. Big improvement. 25 yards 100%(+/- 6") all in black.
One handed is allot wilder aim. Anticipating as the aim moves to when to pull the trigger.
I didn't have time to try the new trigger pull two handed or sand bagged.
Who knew trigger finger contact can make that big a difference.

Ha!

As if you can stop Ivan from buying every firearm the second it goes up for sale!
