I'm now officially done with my handgun collection. [-X I made the decision to sell my Colt King Cobra .357 and to use the proceeds to purchase the final 9mm I wanted to own. After shooting Sine Nomen's 229 a couple weeks ago, I left Bullseye knowing I had to own one and the stars aligned correctly on Friday when both the Colt sold and the 229 was available at the exact same price. So it's done! The 229 has Crimson Trace (which I'm not sure I like yet) and fired 200 rounds meticulously and enjoyably yesterday afternoon.

My handgun collection is now all 9mm as follows:
  • Glock 19
    Glock 26
    Kahr PM9
    H&K USPc
    SIG 229

Keep the CT Grips much better than the Laser Max. You do not have to release the firing grip in order to use the CT, you do not have to replace the factory parts to have a laser.

I had a hard time shooting accurately with the CT Grips and yet shot it extremely well without them. We'll see what a few more trips to the range do. It was nice after I finally noticed that you can TURN THEM OFF with the flick of a switch!!! :lol:

For the record, I like the SIG 229 much better than the HK! 8) :shock: :D

Hey BD:

Congratulations! Nice collection you've got there.


BUT........................................



There jest ain't no sech a thang as a "complete" handgun collection!!!

Anybody wanna take bets on how long until he adds something to his collection? I'm thinking no later than Thanksgiving... probably Halloween... and quite possibly, by the end of the week!



:whistle:

I can easily imagine a complete handgun collection.

A complete rifle collection, however, does not exist.
Maybe there's something wrong with me because I simply cannot comprehend at all the concept of a "complete" collection of any type guns!

Just a complete milsurp collection could easily run several thousand pieces.

Same for shotguns or pistols or revolvers, but rifles could encompass at least a hundred thousand individual guns.

If I ever win the lottery... :gotmail:

I mean, really win big at the lottery... Guess I'll need a fair sized building for starters...

And then there's the garage. The one I've already designed..... :D

Seems the buying bug hit alot of people this weekend!
Hit me too. I would have bought my new (30 yr old) rifle on Friday but i thought the shop closed at 7pm. I got there just a hair after six and they were closed.

Went back Saturday and got me the Winchester 30-30 i wanted for my collection. Now if only i can find a pre-64, i'll snag one of those up too.

I'm with the other folks here, there's no such thing as a complete collection.

I like CT grips. I DO NOT use them for target shooting. I do use them however for target practice around the house where bullets can't be fired. I practice point shooting with them. Quick aim, light the laser and see where you are pointing.

Great idea about the point shooting practice with the CTs. My wife will love it when I'm watching football games and pointing the SIG all over the house! :lol: How long do those batteries last anyways?

As for the collection being done, I mean it this time. :surrender:

I think he meant that he's done buying 9mm handguns...now he's going to start collecting .40's, then .45's...and so on...

What's that phrase I keep reading a lot on this forum? Oh yeah: "there's no such thing as having too many guns".
:lol:
