the most "fun" range guns..

the most "fun" range guns..

So similar, both parkerized, both have 5" bbl's, both have lanyard loops, both have two complete reloads. both have matching K bars.. both are in shoulder holsters..

The 1911 is the Vietnam era brown grips.. the Victory has the typical smoth grips.. Both shoulder holsters and Kbar sheaths are matching black or brown. (1911 in black) both were used the most by either air, or tank crews.. but could have been used by any one in any theater ..

Most Victorys are 4" not 5, and as it was a common issue to Navy air crews, both the shoulder holster and Kbar sheath or Navy marked..

These two get a lot of range time.. i'd love to tell you that when im driving out to the range i "never" feel like im getting ready to climb into an old avenger, or skyraider..Love to tell you that but it's not true.. Not much for "roll playing".. but hard pressed to put on either of these parkerized beauties, and not think about the past.. both are great shooters, but obviously the victory is a lot more fun to shoot..

in a word .."bad".. thing is i can't preview.. sure theirs a way, but i swear when i pull them up i try every option i can think of to get them up to a size that i can say.."well that sucks".. but NOOOOO..

I've tried everything with the pic's open.. looking at little half inch squares of the pictures.. Can't find the "big" button.. all joking aside this is frustrating for me, and obviously embarassing.. Thanks for the positive comments guys as oppossed to the "ya shit head" thats deserved.. If i would have known i assure you the pic would not be up there.. no excuses here.. just fact.. Will see if we can make that the last of the bad ones..

Please don't take offense, Brother Greg. It's meant out of absolute respect but playful irreverence. LBC, good stuff as usual. lol

Good evening, GS! Long time no see. Work has let up a little. Now they are only using one foot to kick me while I'm down.

be hard for you to make me take offense my friend.. you'd have to shoot me.. maybe twice before i could get PO'd at you.. seriously glad to see you on Jim..

Sorry works cutting into the "hang at gunslot" time... BRAAAHHHAAAAA.. seriously glad your works going well Saint..were still seeing a lot of cutbacks here in AZ.. "talk" of the building trades picking up down in the valley, but lot of that is talk.. Not sure on this, but think you might have missed the compensator and target pictures that Trev put up.. if you haven't seen them take a peek.. good stuff..
