to bad you live where you do, your local governments don't like the subjects to be armed. It scares them. But yeah tannerite is a blast to play with, you just need a decent piece of property

That is an outstanding collection, congratulations! I am mostly into shotguns, pump and semi auto, bolt action and lever action rifles. One pump action .30-06 and four revolvers.

Try this site, postimage.org. It is easy to use and free. I have used it for years. At least it was. I don’t even sign in and it still lets me upload. After you upload the photo to their site you have to click on the photo that pops up and then click on share. You have to scroll down and click on hotlink for forums on the little blue image to the left, and it should say copied. Return to our forum and put the curser in the post. Click paste and the html or whatever shows on the post. Preview it first and you should see your photo. Make sure you have the first step when you upload, set for no expiration date.

Another quick way is “using” Twitter. I use a dummy account (with a fake email, with 0 followers, that I “post” pics to, then go to share, open to Safari (or other browser) and it opens it in a web page
(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EAWUbifXYAEm6Rb?format=jpg&name=medium)
then copy that and paste it into the pic icon  (camera icon), just remember to change the “=medium” at the end to “=small”,  otherwise the image takes up half the page.

First off...thanks AJ...or mayba ALTA for starting this thread....can't believe I never saw it before a couple days ago.....especially in my time of Caps boredom (thanks for that thread too  ;D )

I've been working on my mini"collection" (very slowly) for many years.  I have some more not pictured.... my original Ruger 10/22 which I've had since I got it new about 40 years ago.  Still a great little gun that still shoots very well.
I also have a J.C Higgins bolt action 12 ga shotgun.  I bought it for used for $50 about 20 years ago.  I was told it was made for Sears Roebuck and after a little research, I confirmed it was indeed.  It was made likely in the 1950's and sold in Sears catalog for $30 new.  Mine is a 12ga, but they made them in multiple gauges.  It holds 4 rounds.  I thought it was kind of weird - I had never seen a bolt action shotgun at the time.  It shoots well for what it is.  Kicks quite a bit.
My first handgun was the pictured Ruger .357 (stainless) revolver (a few decades ago).  The others shown are Sig 226 9mm, Sig P320 .45, and a Berretta Neos .22.  I have to say I have fired many handguns and nothing matches the Sig guns.  Note this only MY OPINION based on MY EXPERIENCE - not knocking anyone's favorites here, just stating mine.  I have fired....don't know how many thousand rounds through the 226 over the last three decades in multiple conditions with various ammo and never had a failure, and the guns are very accurate and true.  The .45 is relatively new, but it is surprisingly accurate for a carry length gun.  I am very happy with it as well.
The other two pictured are the AR-15 I've had for decades, and an AR-10 which is new to me last year.  (It is a .308/7.62 version of an AR for those who are not experts)  Really been wanting something with a little more knock-down power and man is that thing fun to shoot.  The nice thing about the AR's is even with the bigger caliber, they kick very little so it's easy to handle and fun to shoot.  I've shot the 30-06 bolt action deer rifles and....they're just not that much fun, but then I guess most are not hunting whole herds at one time, so there is that.

Okay, so I will try not to go overboard, but I was getting really tired of all the people and their stupid marathon stickers (26.2, 13.1 halv rev, 10k, 5k etc, etc.) on there cars telling me what great runners they were, so I made my own to compete.  Mine says 7.62 in the big numbers and then is very small letters around the oval; "Go ahead and run...you will just die tired".  I'm really not a nut, and sadly, I have to admit my wife forced me to remove it from my vehicle shortly after I put it on the rear winder.  She had an "altercation" with a liberatard in a grocery parking lot one day she drove it.  Someone actually confronted her and said she must be a racist for having that on the vehicle.  A racist?  Really?  What exactly is racist about this?  Insensitive, maybe?  Funny, maybe - if you had a sense of humor.  It really was only done in jest.  However, my wife was taking the car and our kids on vacation the following week, so I removed it.  I am very non-confrontational actually, but I wish I'd had been there to "educate" the person on confronting my wife about their own stupidity.


(Caps 17201) What kind of lever action do you have?  I have always wanted one, but haven't gotten there yet. 

I have a friend who's dad recently gave him an limited edition NRA lever action rifle he bought about 30 years ago that has never been fired.  I have to go back and ask him what it is.  I believe it is a 30-06.  He was going to sell it to me cheap sometime last year (as he had no interest in it), but then got cold feet and figured his dad might ask about it at some point and he did not want to admit letting it go.

Anyway, there's my gun rant for today.

Sorry...read back thru this and I sound like a nut.  Really just a gun enthusiast and not any type of nutball.  So, I like guns.  Must be a real 'merican.

Sorry DC...I gave ALTA credit for starting this thread.


I shot some of this (I assume it was the same) tantarite at a redneck's house one day a few years ago.  Okay, he was black so not a redneck, but a countrified black guy who lived like a redneck.
Had it about 50yds down range and "we" decided to put a stuffed animal on it and blow it sky high.  Set it up on some small logs to get some height to see it and BLAM.  No lie - it blew a chunk of wood back at us and over our heads and hit my car behind us (where my boys were safely standing....well behind the blast zone....so we thought).  It put a small dent just beneath my driver's window.  Two inches higher and I would have had a very expensive electric window to replace.  Three of my boys were standing right there...guess we were lucky.


I had never used the stuff before and it wasn't mine.  It belonged to the "black redneck" who owned the property, and the gun for that matter.  We shot it with an AK-47, and I was the one who fired it so I didn't really see the blast as well as some of the others.


The guy has 40+ acres and we were being pretty responsible.  Had been shooting for a few hours - He has large downhill open field "range" with a really large dirt pile backstop.


After the blast, we were packing away for the day and got a visit from the local sheriff.  He was actually pretty nice about it.  He said he was just responding to a phone call and he looked at our range, etc and told us to have a good time, but try and keep it safe.


Anyways, pretty fun, but the whole ride home, I could just imagine me sitting in the ER waiting room explaining to my wife how the "chunk of wood" had impaled one of the kids, and that we really were being careful.  :snicker:

The SIG is a very fine pistol. Since you ask, I own four lever action rifles. Two Marlin model 1894’s in .44 magnum. One with a scope and one with iron sights. They were both made in the old factory in North Haven, Connecticut. One in 2002 and one in 2005. Superb fit and finish. Beautiful walnut stocks. One Henry Golden Boy .22, with a brasslight receiver. They polish up nice but are not solid brass. And one Henry Classic lever action blued .22. Henry does a wonderful job on their walnut stocks. I have been hunting and shooting for a long time.

I remember seeing bolt action shotguns back in the day. I thought it kinda pointless. The standard AR15 is sooooooooo deadly that it's not leagal to hunt with in Virginia. The law requires you use a .240 or bigger bullet. So I built two in 6.8spc(.277). I got one of them .308s too, but it's a heavy pig when you put a scope on it.

I bet you friends lever is a .30-30, Not a .30-06.

Yep, I was used to the AR-15 and then got the .308. I wanted something with stopping power and possibly to hunt with (very remote possibly).  308 is kind of big for deer but was sort of covering a bunch of wishes in one gun.
Both are fun, but you damn right about the weight - especially if you start lugging ammo around


I'll ask about the lever action - its been a year since he mentioned it, but I'll find out.  I think he took it to a gun broker guy too, but don't think he has the original box or something...wasn't really worth a whole lot, which is why he asked me if I wanted it.


I almost bought a Henry lever action for fun - just haven't gotten there yet...lots of things on my wish list I don't have yet.

Yep.  .30-.30.  It is a Winchester model 94 "golden spike" commemorative rifle made 1969 on the 100th anniversary of the "golden spike" finalizing the Union Central and Union Pacific railroads meeting and completion in 1869.


His has never been fired, but he does not have the box it came in, so probably not worth all that much.


It would cure my itch for owning a lever action rifle though.  ;D






Went the pistol range today.  Shot both .45 and 9mm.  Good time, but....the last time I went to the range, I appeared to be the highest level of distinguished marksman.  Today....not so much  :snicker:   My target is still dead....just not nearly as pretty.




Man this site is dead.  When does hockey season start?   :yawn:

Those older Winchester’s hold their value, though I’m not sure why. People want “the gun that won the west” or some such. Marlin Co. is just as old. A Marlin is a better gun IMO, and far easier to mount a scope on. If you want a historic lever gun get a Spencer or original Henry. Those two predate the civil war.
