    Anything you'd like to say about guns.

    I'll begin with a personal favourite: the Desert Eagle .50

    She's a beaut.

    I've always wanted to take a class on rifles. I loved firing my grandfather's bolt action .22 at targets. However Connecticut is a terrible to place to own firearms, nowhere to shoot them.

    I've been getting back into muzzleloading and reenacting lately, so I've been looking at dueling pistols a lot.



    Now thats beautiful craftsmanship.

    Also been looking at some double-action revolvers. I like this one. The Smith and Wesson Model 22 in .45 ACP with a case-color hardened frame. I think the case-hardening really brings it to life.



    And I've been looking at Tennessee Valley Muzzleloaders for a new long rifle. Here's some of the ones I've been looking at. I like the Southern Rifle, which is the 5th one down in this picture, but I'm not sure. This picture isn't the greatest.

    Cool

    So, I've been really wanting to make my Bersa look nice. I know its a cheap handgun and all, and I'm planning on getting many better ones in the future, but I don't know, I just love all my guns. I love all my weapons in general. They're an extension of me, you know? Traditionally, I love wood grips on my guns.

    Rather, I usually hate anything composite, like polymer, plastic, faux pearl and ivory. The only guns I'll accept composite grips on so far are more tactical modern weapons such as the Beretta M9, AR-15, H&K MP5, etc. Those are fine and are made to be composite. There's also a Mossburg Shotgun designed for self-defense (hence the name, the defender, lol) that I don't mind with composite grips.

    The rest of the time, I prefer wood, ivory, pearl, horn, stag, and steel grips. Oh, and I also love rubber grips. Rubber is natural, after all. And its also more durable and more comfortable than hard composite grips. I actually would love to have rubber sleeve grips to fit over my regular grips in more tactical shooting scenarios.

    I'm the same way with holsters, belts, etc. I prefer leather, not nylon. I guess I'm just old fashioned. It doesn't mean I don't like these materials at all, I just prefer the former.

    To me, too much plastic and nylon take away the art of the firearm and leave it as purely functional, and thats fine to a point. Like I said, some firearms, I prefer the modern tactical look.

    But when, I look at a weapon, I need to be inspired to carry it, use it, etc. And I want others to see the work that went into it to make it so graceful. To me, the craftmanship of natural materials such as wood and leather do that more.

    Well, the Bersa Thunder .380 has a lot of composite materials on it, including composite grips and trigger. I mean, I can understand the grips. You can change those. But the trigger? Really? What happens if it breaks? lol

    Originally, I was going to keep it as is, grips and all, along with the nylon concealment holster I got for it. Fucking Hurricane Ike has delayed the DPS from processing mine and Metamorphosis' CHLs, so I can only carry it in my truck right now, though I usually don't.

    Well, I went to this website and saw some limited edition wood grips for the Bersa and I thought they were rather nice. At first, I didn't like it, to be honest. But after looking at it for awhile, it kind of grew on me. Only $35, too. Also, on the same site, I found a Bianchi Leather inside the pants holster for $45. So I'm planning on getting these. Thought I'd post some pics up of the Bersa, as well as the wood grips, and the holster. Let me know what you think. I'm open to criticism of my tastes in the society that is all about plastic Glocks.







    Edit: Sorry if I'm ruling this thread.........eh, no I'm not. I told you I'd participate Rainman.

    Impractical? absolutely.

    But I bet the psychological effect in a gunfight would be extraordinary.
