Couple of family rifles - we have a 1640-series Husqvarna in .30-06 that was my wife's grandfather's deer rifle, and an Inland M1 Carbine wearing a stock he modified in his basement in Brooklyn.

The 1640 is a pretty cool old gun but I really want to rescope it (has some old Tasco 4x now) and I've been short on time lately.

Huh... old style shallow taper.

When you get around to making some. If you need some help getting the cases made shoot me a message.


Also after some google fu NOE molds has the proper bullet print in their system from another guy who had a similar rifle.

It apparently uses a shoulder on the bullet to seat to the right depth properly.

I have a Savage in .243 that I don't shoot much these days because when I got it I had access to a much longer range where I could blow up produce.

The first real gun I ever fired - the Remington 514, a single-shot .22 bolt action. My dad learned to shoot on it in the 1940s and he later taught me to shoot on it. I can't even remember the last time I shot it.

XDM compact in 9mm. Bought it during the 2012 election in a panic as I couldn't find a G19 anywhere.

Shot it a handful of times in 2012 and 2013, then finally sold/shipped it out yesterday.

I didn't hate it, but it was just a boring gun that was never as enjoyable as the G19 I wish was available back then.

Don't have many firearms at all ,but the one of the 3 that I do have that I've never fired is my Swede Mauser Carbine 94/14.

Beautiful little rifle I could see using as a hunting weapon at some point in the future - and no, I sure as hell wouldn't "Bubba," it but instead get one of those mounts that swap out the rear sight for a picatinny rail and put a long-eye relief scope on 'er.

I got a first gen CZ Kadet Kit I can't use because my new CZ-85 came with a match hammer, so three out of every four rounds is a light strike. I put a factory mainspring back in it, but that only got it firing half of the time. I'm holding on to it for the off chance I find someone selling a beat up CZ-75 frame or something that I can import cheaply.

Up until recently I had more guns that I hadn't shot than ones I had, although that had to do more with laziness about going to the range than avoidance of shooting specific guns. I've been able to get to the range a couple of times recently to at least function test a lot of these, but some of the ones I have are probably going to remain unfired.

Probably the only "collector" gun I have is my SG553 P. I bought it when they bottomed out in price thinking it'd be the most attainable that a Swiss-made SG55x rifle would ever be. Turns out I was right, although with JDI regularly importing them now it's less of a worry about them going away forever (and other variants are now available, too). I can't see myself shooting it, though, because I stubbornly refuse to play the NFA game out of principle and shooting a pistol-configured rifle seems kinda janky.

I also have a Norinco/IAC 1887 that I bought on a whim a while ago simply because I always wanted one after seeing Terminator 2. I enjoyed it being a bit of a project in that the internals are rough from the factory so you can take it apart and clean it up a bit (vs just buying a nicer Chiappa or Cimarron for a lot more money). It's clearly a "blast at bottles/cans" type gun, though, and I don't have anywhere around where I can do that, so it has just sat around since I bought it.

I also have a Glock 20 SF that I bought because of a really good deal combined with a passing interest in the novelty of 10mm (plus Deus Ex). I'm probably going to trade it to a friend for a Ruger .357, though, if it doesn't tickle me in the near future.

I've got a Mossberg M44(b) that I've rarely ever shot. Used it once when I went to NY but its sat on the rack since. I should shoot it more. It's so neat with it's like, 7 different front sight posts.

The Kadet kit is actually good though. There's a reason it costs as much as a real gun. I wouldn't mind a dedicated Kadet with an SA only trigger, send it off to be threaded and it's the perfect plinker.

Anyway. I found it when I moved. I think I bought it from a friend who fired it once and was scared and sold it to me for almost nothing. I apparently put it in one of my gun junk drawers and promptly forgot about it.

I've a H&R model 999 that is similarly tossed in the Mrs.' excess makeup drawer - she says she forgets its there and has a little "oh," moment each time she opens that drawer.

Should replace it with a rubber snake and see what happens.

When I bought my CZ75 at a local pawn shop a couple years ago, they had a Kadet on a frame I picked up at the same time. Traded out the guts for a SAO trigger and CGW race hammer, and some fiber optic target sights, and itís a fantastic shooter now.

Do you remember if you changed any of the springs out, specifically the hammer
spring?

I modified my own 75B with the full CGW package minus the trigger, which is a flat, two-way adjustable dealie. The Kadet seems neat, I just worry about light strikes with .22. I kinda like the trigger the way it is with an 11.5 lb. spring.

Now that I think of it, it was one of your posts that got me interested in what can be done with a CZ75. That is why I ask you specifically. Cheers!

e: Whoops, thought this was the CZ thread.

No forgotten gats right now, but I remember an FIE .38 revolver my mother had years ago. Thing is, she had forgotten about it it in her 500 sqft. apartment. Found it when I flipped the couch over to find a rattle which turned out to be $4- something in change. Must have fallen in through a hole under the cushions and gotten stuck between the frame and the springs of that couch.

It did not take long to figure out why it had been lost and not found. What a piece of poo poo. A trigger like mixing concrete with a shovel, every single screw would work it's way out in one cylinder, and the cylinder retention pin would also walk out. To reload it you had to remove that pin and yank the whole cylinder out.

She didn't remember what it cost, which mean it must have been really cheap. Whatever, Larry's Pistol and Pawn gave me $40 on a 91/59 for it, which was the first gun that was really mine.

Almost a year now since my Beretta 76 turned into a bag-of-gun. It's still a bag-of-gun, but at least it's been sitting on a gunsmith's shelf since, uh, March? I legit forgot about it until a couple of days ago, so when I remembered it I immediately called to ask what's going on there. Sourcing the broken bits is evidently kind of a nightmare, which is a shame, because it's a lovely little plinker, is what it is.

Usually "WHAT THE HELL DID YOU JUST SHOOT?!?" based on the loudness. I regret not buying one of the compensated barrels back in the 90's. That's probably mini Y-comp loud.

My .45s (M&Ps), my shotguns, my J frame. I've shot the J frame a decent amount so I know it works, and that's enough for me... the .45s are just spendy to shoot a lot of.

I am pretty sure I drunkenly bought a po surp Mossberg 500 on GB for like $130 or something. I forget when that was, but close to 6m ago I'd say. Haven't shot it yet. I kinda want to replace some of the small parts first anyway, as I'm pretty sure the retaining plate for the safety just, like, fell out.

I donít specifically recall changing the springs out, but itís been a while? I got two SAO triggers from CZ Customs, and two of the CGW race hammer, and I think maybe the sears that go with it? Whatever came in the kit with the hammer, since I know didnít just buy the hammers alone. I havenít had any problems with light strikes on the Kadet, and itís been several years since I swapped Ďem out.

The other fun one with my cz52. Was at a shooting match and the judge did the timing usually stood to the right and back a little.

It's the middle of summer and he's wearing a loose shirt that's tucked into his belt.

just to be an extra bit of an rear end I tipped my pistol a bit past vertical... managed to put two cases down his shirt and one stuck in his hair.

next round he stood behind me.

For what it's worth, one of the first CZ 75s that I owned was an SAO-converted CZ 75B with a pretty light trigger (CZ custom trigger and hammer, can't remember any other details), and I had very frequent light strikes with a Kadet kit on it. You'll probably be alright, though, as long as you don't try to get the trigger down to "breath on it" weight. This thing was probably around 2 lbs.

I had a neat half-circle cut on my nose from an ejected 7.62x25 case. Skipped off my eye protection and caught me on the side of the schnozzola.


Last weekend my Glock 17 put a hot casing in the back of my collar. I tried to get it out and it dropped down my (tucked-in) shirt into my underwear. Good times...

SUCK A MALE CAMEL'S DICK WITH MIRACLE WHIP!!


I've got an old 20 gauge Cooey 84.

It was my dad's. He's the one that never shot the drat thing. He owned it for probably 40 years. Not sure why he kept it, but I figured maybe he thought he'd give it to one of his kids or something? I'm the only gun fruit in the family, so he gave it to me when I got my license. It was my first gun, and I shot a bunch of trap with it, but having only a 26 inch barrel, and no bead on it (at the time), I didn't hit much.
It sits in the back of my cabinet and I take it out a few times a year, but its plain jane-edness doesn't get noticed and I mostly take my over unders and side x sides out to the trap range.

Maybe I'll take it out this weekend.

I was given an old Marlin 55G 12ga. shotgun about 6 or 7 years ago that I've never shot. It's in great condition but a 28" barreled, bolt-action, 3 round box magazine fed shotgun is just loving odd as hell. It's got the adjustable Marlin Micro Choke too. I should buy a box of shells and give it a whirl but I just don't really care enough to. I prefer pistol shooting when I do find time to go to a range and it's kind of an ungainly bastard.

I haven't sold it because of sentimental reasons and also it makes an interesting conversation piece.
