What caliber is that black pistol on the right (your left) Major? 8)


I don't have any pics, but my S&W 19 is a blast to shoot. I have a Walther P22 for those times when I just want to burn ammo. :D

From top to bottom: .44mag Interarms Virginian Dragoon, Savage 101 (single shot) .22lr, Heritage Rough Rider .22combo (this is my wife's favorite shooter)

Sorry about the quality. Now I know what the difference is between a $400 dollar Digital Camera and a $20 one. :(

You can cut down a tree with a Dragoon. It just takes a little time, good aim, and depending on the tree, a lot of money. :lol:

Seriously, they are surperb SA pistols. If you shoot one alot you have to check the screws regularly, at least on mine I do. My Dragoon has been my truck seat gun for years, and has a couple of south GA wild hog "notices" on it's handle. It's a lot a fun to shoot, if you have on ear protection!

Believe it or not she is my Possum Poodle.

She and her older sidekick, also a toy poodle, will go after and corner or tree possums or raccoons that make the mistake of coming into our backyard. They take on animals 3 times their size. They will get on both sides of their victim and when the animal turns to attack one the other will close in and bit em in the butt. When bit the animal will whirl around to go after the biter and the other one will bit the animals butt. It worried me the first few times but now I think it looks so funny, those little dogs beating up another animal. I just go out with a ball bat in case they bite off more than they can handle but haven’t needed to rescue them yet.

Here is the other part of the team.

How about a 1917 vintage commercial Colt 1911? From my Grampa to my Dad and now mine... Couldn't count the thousands of rounds that have gone through this pistol. Grampa and Dad both shot competitive bullseye. Grampa soldered on the Patridge front and added the Micro Machine rear back in the late 50's or early 60's. Killed any real value it may have had. Doesn't matter to me though. There's no price would make me part with it.

Thanks Leverpuller. It always brings back the memories when I take it out for a few rounds. Other than the grips, sights and the Colt National Match barrel and bushing I gave my Dad for Christmas in '75 or so it's all factory. They really built them to last back then. I know my Dad shot a minimum of 200 rounds in practice every week plus matches. Grampa shot Master, and you generally don't get there the first time you empty the magazine. Unfortunately, I've never had the talent for bullseye. I used it briefly for PA Steel League (plate shooting), but retired it before it started to show holster wear. Now it sees casual targets, plinking and an honored spot in the safe.

Nice pistols, gentlemen......

Tell us what you know about that P08, Smoke.

It's hard to pick a favorite, but here's a couple of them.

Springfield old model mil-spec

Savage Striker, .308

Wilson, the mutt with x-ray vision!

Here is one similar to yours, it's a Korean War bring back, Colt 1911.



The P08 is a a S42/1938, all matching numbers except the original magazine which was lost in a move. Mint bore, I have been told the "Blue dots" on the grips have some significance but don't know what. The Browning Hi-Power (Blue) is a "T" series I bought in 1967, paid $87.00 for it including 100 rounds of canadian ammo. I still have the ammo, this pistol has never been fired.

Jayco.....

We adopted Wilson from the local dog pound a couple years ago. He was a stray and the people at the pound are responsible for naming him. We talked about changing his name, but everyone liked him "as is"......so, it stuck!

Is your Taurus a Casul? By the looks of your cartridge, I'm betting you are a reloader. How do you like it?

Smoke.....

Mine is nothing more than a shooter, but yours......now, that's a real collectible 1911. Ditto, the HiPower.

Don't no anything about P08's, but I'd say that the quality of yours is better than later years. I've always been a fan of German pre-war craftsmanship.

I see everyone on MO has some mighty fine appreciation for fine shootin' irons.
