If you can think of something to talk about that is not related to knives, discuss it here.

My wife got me this one, an Italian Tanfoglio EA380. First I've ever heard of the company but after researching, I discovered they have contracted with the Israeli and Italian military and used to make the earlier Berretas. Also, they are popular all over Europe for competition shooting. Very happy with it and it didn't break the bank.

Two fine looking handguns Yehuda. ::tu::

I just recently added a new pocket pistol, the Ruger LCP. I thought it might come in handy to have a bit smaller and more concealable pistol on occasion. For some reason, this one caught my eye over the standard black model.

My wife likes hers. It's a great pistol for the money. I've never been disappointed with a Ruger. Cool finish too!

I've shown this in the past but given the previous photos of minimalist modern semi-autos I thought this old timer would not be out of place. It is a Grendel .380. It had bounced around in an Arizona rancher's tool box for more than a couple of years. It has never malfunctioned despite my attempts to induce a failure. At suitable distances it has very good accuracy. Recoil impulse is sharp.

Well, what the heck. Keeping with previous posts, here's a little Kel-Tec in 32 auto.

A slick little unit like makes a great argument against my habit of EDCing a full-frame semiauto. It's a lethal work of art. ::tu:: Your wife has excellent taste in firearms!

Agreed Tony my friend. Fine firearm. I mix up my carries. Even carry two at times. Main and backup. Personally, I always gravitate back to my SIG P220 5inch DA/SA in 10mm with 2 spare mags. At just under 3 pounds loaded, not for everyone.
Just like the idea of 185 grain at 1300 or 1400 FPS if the situation calls for a firearm. Range or otherwise.

One on the left in the pic. Don’t mind carrying the other two either.

Great firearms everyone. Those Sigs are furious!

I finally mounted my rifles over the fireplace.

You would get along great with my buddy John. He's a guitar freak. I think at last count he has slightly in excess or 50. He's as bad about guitars as I am about knives. My hobby's cheaper. :mrgreen:

These are old pictures. The collection has grown since these pictures were taken.

Wow! That's an amazing haul! My father was a musician and guitar collector. At one point he had around thirty guitars. I have seven guitars and two bass guitars with no plans to acquire any more. I think I have what I need. We'll see!
