    Evilgrin07 Flashlights, Pistols, and Blades... :)

    Mrs. Chronos is out with friends tonight so I thought I'd take a few pics of some of my toys. Sorry about the quality of the pics- I managed to leave the good camera at the beach house. Oh well.

    I thought I'd open the old safe and clean some pistols. I hope no one minds a few pics of guns, lights and blades (ok, I left all but a couple of blades upstairs... sigh). Let's see how many can ID the pistols: manufacturer and model.

    Let's see what you've got in your collection!

    Sometimes, when I'm feeling down because nothing seems to be going right, I like to take a home pregnancy test. Then I can say, "Hey, at least I'm not pregnant

    Chronos,

    Great pics, I figure #5 would be your choice on those "dressy" nights when only petticoat will do!

    Don't mind me, I'm just jealous, they don't trust us with guns over here, which is probably a good thing, well at least for my feet.

    Wow, I LOVE the look of the Colt Woodsman, what a nice silhouette! And the derringer! I don't know why, but I've always loved those things even though they're totally impractical compared to other options. I guess part of it is that you can get them for less than $100 and in the mail with no paperwork since they're black-powder guns. Good collection.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!

    The woodsman is a great, accurate little pistol. The derringer is stored in its original book safe (!). When I get more time I'll post some pics of some of my other toys.

    For grins, here's a couple other pics:

    I decided to add a few more pictures to the fray:

    Ruger Mark III Hunter w/D-mini PEU 18650 and Gerber


    My EDC Collection: H&K P2000 w/Fenix L2D-CE Q5 and Leatherman Surge


    CZ-52, SF 6PD w/Malkoff M60, and Gerber AR3.00 (well used and loved!)


    Beretta M9 w/Wolf-Eyes Thunder Q5 and an old knife my Dad got from Sweden many years ago. I swear this knife has the best quality steel I've ever seen.

    Ummm... DM51... did you read the rules?
    If you post an image in your post, please downsize the image to no larger than 800 x 800 pixels.
    They state no larger than 800x800, and none of my pictures were larger than that. No hard feelings. Thanks for your efforts to keep an eye on things.

    I actually don't know a whole lot about it. My dad bought it from a mail-order catalogue when he was around 8-10 years old, so that would've been 1952-1954. In the catalogue it showed the thing driven through a penny. It had deteriorated a little bit by the time I got my grubby little hands on it. There was this awful opaque paint on the handle and it was a bit rusty, so I sanded/stripped the handle and finished it with "tung oil finish" - it's like tung oil but it's got a varnish component too - cleaned up the blade and other metal fittings, oiled the leather sheath, and it's been a great companion when I need it, usually camping. Sharpens up nicely when it needs it, which isn't often. Here are a couple pics (no larger than 800x800 ):

    Good eye!

    OOOOOOOOOPS!! My sincere apologies! You are absolutely right. Last time I checked the maximum size was 800x600 - it must have been changed at some stage without my noticing. The rule now is indeed, as you say, 800 x 800 pixels.

    I think the one of yours which I deleted was 800x768. The irony is that I would probably have left it alone if it hadn't been for another member a few posts above who posted a number of giant pics side by side, and as a result I had rather gone into "hunt the big pics" mode.

    My apologies again, and thanks for pointing that out!

    Major points to Daekar for CZ-52 ownership. Keep up the x25 faith.
    Do something alone and it's weird, do it with others and it's a club.

    Daekar, IIRC that knife has a laminated blade. Was considered a very good working knife.

    Viva CZ52's! Good fun to shoot.
