    STI Rogue - 9mm 1911 - Wonderful quality
    [​IMG]

    S&W 627 2 5/8" barrel 8 shot - Next to the Caracal, one of my favorites!
    [​IMG]

    M&Pc w/ Crimson Trace grips - Never liked the way this one shot
    [​IMG]

    Ruger Mark III Competition - Hardest gun to put back together I've ever had!
    [​IMG]

    Ruger 22/45 - Same difficulty to put back together. Lots of blood and cussing on these.
    [​IMG]

    Walther P22 - Poor quality and ammo picky, but fun to shoot
    [​IMG]

    CMMG Dedicated .22LR Upper and CMMG multi-cal lower - absolute blast to own and shoot! Rugged and Reliable too! Standard AR specs, just a .22 instead.

    Firewire - great pics as usual.

    Tell me about your STI Rogue - I'm an admitted Colt snob myself but have been intrigued by STI. Is the Rogue stock? If so, what is the stock sight configuration? Also, how would you compare to the Defender series?

    Next, that S&W 627 definitely has me coveting. 8 Rounds of .357 Mag :cool: I typically like at least a 3" barrel on a .357 Mag (own a Smith Model 60) - but the 4" variation seems too large for my needs. Tell me how yours handles!

    I do love the Rogue. The sights are machined out of the slide. Thus non adjustable, but nothing to snag on. The Rogue was replaced by the Escort which essentially put an officers grip on it instead of the short bastard size (nice for carry, but no grips can't be bought off the shelf). For carry the Rogue beats the Defender, because the Rogue uses and alloy frame so it's lighter. For stoutness and collectibility the Colt is better. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another STI though. Their customer service is the best I've ever seen. Initially my slide wouldn't stay locked back and they sent me new mags no questions asked and no need to return the old ones.
    Good review on it:

    Here is shot of the other side:

    As for the S&W 627 UDR (Ultimate Defense Revolver), this is my all time favorite all time revolver. Perfect weight and balance. If someone is only going to have one revolver I HIGHLY recommend this one. Can be pricey ($800-$1000), but I can't even describe the overall feel. I have small hands yet this N frame feels like a J. I met a guy last year who has 8 of these. He obviously was an obssessed collector, but hold one and shoot one and you will be sold.

    I laughed out loud when I read your descriptions for your Ruger 22s. I too own a 22/45 and thus have been "blessed" with the pleasure of disassembly and re-assembly... many times. I bought the pistol new but it's never operated properly. I hate the d#$m thing. I should have sent it in to Ruger years ago for repair, never got around to it. This pistol along with the follies of Bill Ruger have relegated me to a Ruger-hater. I suspect you probably have more regard for your Rugers. Regardless, I chuckle every time I come across someone expressing with similar experience with working on those God-forsaken little devices. Cheers!

    Here is one of my beaters (extremly hard used Dept. trade in) we reblued the slide on and then cerakoted the frame. I was'nt crazy about the frame color but it kinda grew on me after awhile.[attachment=0:3p8scd0z]DSC04672a.JPG[/attachment:3p8scd0z]

    By the way portern, thats a good looking 229. I picked up a couple of what look to be unissued North Carolina DMV stamped 357sig 229's a few months back. They both came with night sights, 3 mags, box, and paperwork for $375 each. I really did'nt need 2 of them but it was to good of a deal to pass up. The one I've been carrying shoots like it has eyes and is dead reliable.

    I live in NC and If I read that right I am very worried that the NC DMV has guns. :shock:


    Seriously though, where/how did you score a deal like that??

    Re: Pics of other guns! - Noisy Cricket

    I picked up a pocket pistol today. A North American Arms (NAA) Guardian .32 ACP. I wish I could engrave "Noisy Cricket" on it (from the movie Men in Black).

    Of course I had to "sexy" the picture up a bit. :D

    Never had a .32 acp. Could have gotten the .380, but most reports show these mouse guns are punishing to shoot at that caliber. Plus the dang recoil springs in .380 caliber should be replaced after 200 rounds. I didn't want that type of maintenance.

    The magazine finger rest makes it much more comfy to hold.

    I sent DDleather a PM and they already make a pocket holster for this little jewel he said!

    I've never fired a .32, and I strongly dislike the .380 for ... reasons ...

    How do you like it?

    I just picked it up yesterday and did my normal clean and lube the living crap out of it. I might take it to the range today. Just a kinda cool pocket pistol. Truly pocketable. I think I could go literally anywhere wearing anything. It's a "no excuse not to carry piece".

    Check out the customization some do to these. They make them into heirlooms:
