    Default Post some pictures of your working guns

    I am guilty like most members of forums of posting pictures of my safe queens or firearms that are in close to NIB condition.

    I would like to see some pictures of working pistols and revolvers. These should have character meaning they have honest wear and tear (usage marks, etc) that is normal for a carry weapon.

    I start off with my 1990 vintage Colt Delta Elite that has been my primary carry pistol for over 15 years. This Delta was rebuilt by Colt in 2001.











    As you can see she's not the prettiest girl on the block, but like her owner she's showing her age.

    Yeah, but the grips are shiny!


    All of my carry guns look nearly new to be honest becasue they're all currently either stainless steel or finished in a tough finish that doesn't really wear off unless you drag it along conrete.

    Pretty much ditto to what 9-7 said above..

    All, and I mean ALL, of my handguns whether they have a 2" or 12" barrel, are auto or revolver, cartridge or cap & ball, all get carried. However I'm pretty good as to not damage or mar them. I'm not sure how some people damage or markup their firearms... I would intentionally have to try to do that for my firearms to look as some people's do.

    Hey, I'll keep that in mind. Never know when an extra testicle might come in handy. LOLOLOLOL. Hey, here's the other side of the big one, and its little brother. The .38 fits very nicely in the back pocket of my jeans with a shirt over the top.

    Here's the semi-autos I carry. The top one is an older Steyr M-40, 12 + 1 rounds of .40 S&W, and the bottom one is a Hungarian Milsurp PA-63, 7 + 1 rounds of 9mm MAK. The PA-63 is well broken in and totally reliable and in fact more accurate than the Steyr at the 25' range that I use for practice.

    Nice! I have a lady friend that "needs" the 38.. The 45LC snubby has my name written all over it though..

    Hey Knight, I'll put you in my will. Hopefully, you'll have to wait a few years before you can cash in. My "lady" likes the .38, light weight and fits nicely in her purse. She's a Realtor, I like it when she carries it along when meeting that new potential customer, I can't always go along. She is a damn good shot, and I didn't teach her to shoot, she came equipped with that skill.
