Recently got this S&W Model 1955, 25-2. In .45acp, put 150 rounds through it yesterday and an absolute joy to shoot.

Top right corner: High Standard 9-shot .22 revolver! I had one of the newer versions, the HS Camp Gun in .22 Mag. Dollar-for-dollar, probably the best-shooting revolver I’ve ever owned. The thing was as accurate as the day is long and it had an amazing single-action trigger pull - crisp, almost no over-travel. I loved that thing!

For better or worse, my younger son liked the thing about as much as I did. Kept asking me to sell it to him, or at least leave it to him in my will. Finally, some years back, after he’d had it ‘borrowed’ for quite some time, he had asked if I needed it back. I simply told him to keep it! Christmas had come early for him that year!

    53 years old.....son is graduating this semester with his masters...job offer in hand.....no college debt.

    Drive a 5 year old Tacoma that I hope to drive for many more years.

    Don't drink, don't smoke......pretty boring dude....just work crazy long hours and recover on my days off.


    Guns are my only vice. Mainly handguns....those I can enjoy at the nearby indoor range.

    I started competing in USPSA at your age. I would encourage you to give it an honest try.

    It's a shitload more fun than blasting at the indoor range and, if you approach the sport the right way, it will drive your handgun skills to levels you never thought you could achieve.

    When I get both knees and right shoulder replaced I am certainly wanting to give it a try.

    My summertime EDC kit: 9mm S&W M&P EZ, Streamlight ProTac, Buck 110 Lite. Pistol usually rides in the DeSantis IWB holster with a spare mag, appendix-carry. Nothing special, nothing custom! Just good solid kit!

    All internals polished ($0.25 Trigger Job)

    Pretty pleased with how this turned out for an EDCC. The Vickers Tactical Trigger and polishing the internals made the biggest difference.

    After 9 months of waiting, my Les Baer made it in (just a Concept III with a couple options).
    Pardon the crappy cell phone pic.

    Rounds 1-7 through it at 15 yards. I wish I could say that I'm going to get better with it, but this is about as good as I can do. I've got a total of 50 through the pistol now, so a lot more practice before it's broken in.

    Of note: Mine came with Tripp Research Cobra Mags. Not sure when that started, but you really need a magwell to keep them aesthetically pleasing.

    Thank you.

    I used same on an AXG despite all the negative feedback,

    Seems to be working okay but I did get new screws and not use the supplied ones. I didn’t like the angle on the head.

    I would be wary of them. There was a big thread a while back.

    Mine fits prefect and the screws were the correct thread and length. Without their product the RMR wouldn't have worked properly since its a lot smaller then the Sig cut out on the slide.

    This one has been big fun.

    I really like the heft of it….stable as hell and stupid fast recovery.

    Just added the rear sight….not even sure why….it won’t be a carry gun.

    Gun is crazy fast.

    Targets below are rapid fire…just letting it ride.

    Truly a gun that anyone could shoot well.

    I'm temporarily running irons, as Its old RMR took a trip back to the factory to fix an issue with random blinking on/off. We'll fix that as soon as the new SRO arrives.

    Did some plinking with the FN 502 and one of my Oculus 22 demo cans. The long config of this suppressor is superb, but the short config barks a bit louder than I'd like for extended shooting sessions (it's fine for short strings, though). While it's nice to have options, I think the long config will account for the vast majority of my pistol shooting.

    I've had difficulty getting the 502 to run for any length of time with a suppressor, but after the last cleaning I used a generous amount of Mobil 28 grease on all the wear points and it ran flawlessly.

    99% percent made from stock metals. Only things not made by me are the wood grips, sights, and barrel. Everything else, screws, springs, lower and slide, and all internal parts were made from scratch.

    At 25 yards have a 2 inch shot group or better.
