In Keeping With the Current Theme

His Imperial Majesty decided to create his very own motivational poster:



  1. 1
    Slightly to the right of Gingis Khan growls and barks:

    And Happy Birthday to the M1911! 101 years old today.

  2. 2
    LC_Salgak growls and barks:

    A classic. . . .

    angrywebmaster growls and barks:

    I’ve been researching 1911’s with an eye to purchase for some time now.

    I”m not looking to drive tacks at 50 yards, since I can’t see them. Just solid, reliable and not to expensive.

  4. 4

    I got my Springfield Armories 1911 from some redneck in West Virginia, who didn’t know what he had, fired it maybe once, and was too ignorant to ask more for it. I paid $350.

    His name is Watson.

    Why do I carry a pistol?

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

    LC Draco growls and barks:

    Nothing says hello like a .45!!!

    One of the coolest things ever is if you have ever seen a Star PD, if there is one in the chamber and pointed at you, you can actually SEE the round. And the barrel looks about as big as a howitzer!! My dad bought one of the first ones in the US and it is still in our family.

    The best thing about a 1911. . .

    (trying it again. . . )

    Lc ORWN engine builder for Rottie Racing growls and barks:

    Why a 45? Because they don’t make a 46

    I get tired of all of you 1911 snobs … I’m fond of the FNP-45

    BigDogg growls and barks:

    Dammit … try again:

    angrywebmaster growls and barks:

    So if one .45 is good, is this one better? (And I hope this works!)

    Cactus Jack growls and barks:

    I must be old fashioned, cuz I still have this thing for my old S&W .357. She’s kinda like my wife…you know there may be better out there, but she can still knock the living shit out of you if you get on the wrong end of her.

    LC HJ Caveman82952 growls and barks:

    I’m old fashioned too…..still luv my P100 Ruger .357 with a six inch barrel…I like wheel guns…and she does indeed pack a punch. A beautiful gun. Heck, just about all my guns are old fashioned……pump twelve shotguns, lever action or bolt action rifles, etc. All except the M1A. I’m just an old fashioned guy I guess.
    But the key word is gun nut……..old or new……..we appreciate a well made gun……

    Mark12A growls and barks:

    Nothing at all wrong with revolvers. But let’s face it…you’re a caveman…

    I’ve joined you in the ranks of the revolver throwbacks. Two 4 inch S&W Model 19s. Speed loaders. +Ps.

    LC Draco growls and barks:

    Bottom line is what do you feel comfortable having in your hand when the shit hits the fan. I have done combat shootings with 1911’s in .45, SIGs, HKs, Walthers, Kimbers…and fired a few Glocks (I hate them, they do not fit my hand.).

    And as a disclaimer, my bedside gun is my USP .40 compact with TacLite. Of course with the .40…I have ‘special’ rounds that expand to bigger than .45 hardball. Just my 2 cents.

    Cactus Jack @ #14:

    If I was going to admit to having anything, (wink, wink) it would be a Colt 357 pimped out with Pachmayee grip. and matching speedloaders. It also takes Glaser rounds. A nice thing about wheel guns, they save fuss and dtime policing up your brass if you ever feel a need to shoot-n-scoot.

    LC HJ Caveman82952 growls and barks:

    You’re busted, Rurik…..I know I saw a pic of you with a wheelgun, …and here I sit thumbing through my edition of Guns&Ammo having just arrived in the mail today…… Nice pic of a Springfield single stack, flat forty-five…must investigate further….and a new Mossie…….rimfire AR’s? So much to see….hmmmmm

    Hey, Cave, go easy on gospodin Rurik, if you please. As much as I love my lady Kimberley, I know that my life will not be complete until I have at the very least a good replica of the venerable old Colt Peacemaker.

    I once had the pleasure of shooting a pair of the real article at the range, marble handles, cowboy holsters and everything, and I still think back on that experience with a smile on my face. And a sudden urge to go have a smoke. As a matter of fact, just talking about it makes me want to go have another one.

    One day. One day I’ll have one…

    LC HJ Caveman82952 growls and barks:

    I’m busted too, Sire….
    I even posted my pic shooting the .357, which I must confess to having a great affection for…….damn, a real peacemaker would be nice, bit of history…….
    Now to go cop another revolver…but what kind, which one………

    irish19 growls and barks:

    Great pic. Hope you don’t mind, but I shared it to FB.
    As far as carrying a gun-it’s because a cop is just too darn heavy.

    LC HJ Caveman82952 @ #19:

    Must’ve been at a Rotfest. Ah well. Molon Labia, or something like that. :em07:

    Rurik’s Little Pretty doesn’t spend her life just layin’ around lookin’ pretty neither, if the the amount of lead boogers we pulled out’a her sweet lil’ bore is any indicator!

    Wheelgun=Point ‘n Shoot=Funsavers!

    LC Akornzombie growls and barks:

    Nice… though it and my carry gun are related in some weird way:

    Never been to a Rottfest, Rurik. It was a picture you sent me.
    It would be an honor to hand you my revolver to test out……..
    Now the M1A….. which might beat the shit out of old fuckers like us…..
