AK47, Lancaster Arms, Model 3060: Russian Red
AK 47 1mm Rec. Russian Red Stock with Black Plastic PG
The AK-47 is a selective fire, gas operated 7.62x39mm assault rifle, first developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov. The designation AK-47 stands for Kalashnikov automatic rifle, model of 1947 (Russian: Автомат Калашникова 47, tr. Avtomat Kalashnikova 47). It is therefore also known as Avtomat Kalashnikova (or simply 'AK'), Kalashnikov or Russian jargon Kalash).

Design work on the AK began in 1944. In 1946 a version of the rifle, the AK-46, was presented for official military trials, and a year later the fixed stock version was introduced into service with select units of the Red Army. An early development of the design was the AKS-47 (S—Skladnoy or "folding"), which differed in being equipped with an underfolding metal shoulder stock. The AK-47 was officially accepted by the Soviet Armed Forces in 1949 and used by the majority of the member states of the former Warsaw Pact.

Mossberg Model 500 Persuader:
I like this shotgun quite a bit, but honestly don't have a lot of experience with shotguns. This was my very first one every purchased. Although, I have shot them before this was the first one I shot with a pistol grip. It's fine and seems great for home security. I did feel the recoil, just a bit in the backside of my hand, but it was nothing to be concerned about. Not sure how it might feel with heavier loads though.

Chinese SKS: (from Wikipedia)
The SKS fell out of service amongst its client nations during the 1960s and 1970s, although the Chinese police and military forces continued to use it during the 1980s, and chromed, polished ceremonial versions are still used today in parades, There are a few Chinese reserve and militia units still using the SKS along with the Type 56 assault rifle. Vietnam still has military police units armed with the SKS. Many surplus SKS rifles were disposed of in the 1990s, and photographs and stories exist of SKS rifles used by guerilla fighters in Bosnia, Somalia and throughout Africa and South-East Asia[4] during the 1990s and 2000s. Several African, Asian, and Middle Eastern armies still use the SKS.

During the Cold War, Russia shared the design and manufacturing details with its allies. Therefore, many variants of the SKS exist. Some variants use a 30-round AK-47 style magazine (Chinese Type 63), gas port controls, flip-up night sights, and prominent, muzzle-mounted grenade launchers (Yugoslav M59/66, possibly North Korean Type 63). In total, SKS rifles were manufactured by Russia, China, Yugoslavia, Albania, North Korea, Vietnam, and East Germany (Kar. S) with limited pilot production (Model 56) in Romania and Poland (Wz49). Physically, all are very similar, although the NATO-specification 22 mm grenade launcher of the Yugoslav version, and the more encompassing stock of the Albanian version are visually distinctive. Early versions of Chinese Type 56s (produced 1965–71) used a spike bayonet, whereas the majority use a vertically-aligned blade. Many smaller parts, most notably the sights and charging handles, were unique to different national production runs. A small quantity of SKS carbines manufactured in 1955–56 were produced in China with Russian parts, presumably as part of a technology sharing arrangement. Many Yugoslav M59/66 series rifles were exported to Uruguay and Mozambique[citation needed]; the Mozambique versions having teakwood stocks, the wood supplied by that nation. The vast majority of Yugoslav M59 and M59/66s have elm, walnut and beech stocks. SKS carbines have also made appearances in recent conflicts in Africa, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Today the SKS is in service with China, North Korea and Vietnam, as well as many other countries in Africa.

Nations that utilized the SKS but did not receive manufacturing rights included Afghanistan, Congo, Indonesia, Iraq, Laos, Lebanon, Mongolia, Morocco, the United Arab Republic (Egypt), and the Yemen People's Democratic Republic.

The SKS has also been featured prominently around the world during times of civil unrest.[citation needed]

The all-round talent

The GLOCK 19 is ideal for versatile use through reduced dimensions
compared with the standard pistol size. With the proven caliber
of 9x19, it has found worldwide distribution in security services.
In addition to being used as a conventional service weapon, it is
suitable for concealed carry or as a backup weapon. For instance,
many of the elite pilots of the USAF trust the GLOCK 19 for their
efficient defense in emergency situations. (from Glock website)

I have been shooting the Glock 19 since the mid 1990s and I like
everything about this gun except for one thing. Since it is a bit
wider than what is completely comfortable in my hand, if I shoot for
a long period of time, my hand gets' tired. However, it takes a long
time before that happens.

This is the second Glock I have owned. The first one I took with me
to Australia when I was active duty military. It was easy enough to get
into Australia (this was prior to when the confiscated the guns), but
getting it back to the USA would prove more difficult. Coming back, the
government wanted the original receipt for the gun. I made about a dozen
phone calls trying to get a copy of the receipt, but after about 150 dollars
in calls, figured it would make more sense to just leave the gun with
the gun club in Australia versus more aggravation and further costs
of long distance phone calls. Not sure if the gun was actually destroyed,
but my guess is that somone grabbed it and kept it...hopefully! I liked
shooting the gun so much that when I returned, I bought another one.

Picture taken at a public range, near Pittston, PA (Suscon Road). The day
was pretty cold, with very gusty winds. I didn't like the range and later found
out that I was illegally firing because I was past the firing line (but I was the
only one on the range that day, at this time). The range was setup as a pistol/
rilfe range, but reverted to rifle range...or you could shoot pistol from 50 yards
or more.


Sturm Ruger .357:

This pistol was given to me from my father, who acquired it from someone
else who rented 1/2 of a double block. That person carried it with him as
an armed Security Officer (who actually shot himself in the leg). I don't have
much information on this thing, but it actually shoots pretty accurately (either
that or I am just an incredible shooter)...ok, we'll go with the first option!


The last pistol is one of the biggest pieces of shit ever! It's the Davis
Industries, Chino Calfornia, .380. My grandfather had this pistol in
the house (he's almost 90), so we took it out of the house. I don't think
it was ever registered (my brother got it for him), the slide was basically
rusted, frozen or whatever in place and my grandfather couldn't find the
ammo for it, so it was doing him no good. I took it, cleaned it up and shot
a few times, it fires, but it is unreliable and after 30 rounds or so, it starts to
jam up again. I wouldn't trust it for self defense and have read that they
have actually injured soon as I get back to the US, the first gun
turn-in they have, I will be there for my 50 -65 dollars or whatever they offer.
