Just took a couple fresh pics of a few of my guns with my newer camera...

any of these usually gets a look at the public range... especially the 50 cal ( bottom gun ) with the ported barrel... the concussion can be felt a long ways away

I'm going to assume those scopes are NOT attached to the slide itself?

I am also somewhat curious on how you have them mounted? I take it those are wooden pegs they are hung on, so that the barrel doesn't get scraped?

Scopes are mounted on grip frame mounts...
guns are slid onto plastic coated steel rods... ( Steel rods had the ends rounded, & all the burrs polished off before coated in heavy heat shrink tube...

BTW... guns are coated in a thin layer of sawdust for storage... actually I'm still doing wood work in my safe room, so they get wiped down, after each carpentry session, & will get detail cleaned after I'm finished, or before they get shot ( which ever comes 1st )

this is a pic of the 50 from the other side showing the grip mount... a HandAll JR slid over the grip frame gives a pretty large purchase, but I have big hands & it works well for me...

Cool, I am planning on making my own "hidden safe" in our house that just finished being built, and that gives me another option for housing it. I was just concerned about that style of mounting damaging the barrel.

Sorry for my somewhat newb comments, just trying to learn what I can

This is the gun that gets the most reaction when I go shooting. My buddies call it the black death because it's so accurate. It is the old hunter package in .44 magnum.

The pistol that always trips my trigger is the old 1st or 2nd generation single action colts. It's one of the guns that built this country and I just can't stop looking at them.

I find other shooters attracted to my AMT Longslide Hardballer (with muzzle break, red dot sight, slightly extended 10 round magazine), NAA Mini revolver in .22Mag (firebreathing dragon), Webley MK. VI., and my 1917 DWM Luger.

Of course I too am easilly distracted by shiny objects and I give as much attention to the neat stuff of others as I get from them. Enjoy!

Are those charging handles on the sides of those scoped AMTs?

My tokarev never fails to get attention when fired anywhere near somebody.

Specially with bulgy '52 headstamp.

This one draws a crowd, but they don't stay long unless they have good hearing protection . . .

Same with this one. Only I don't think it's that loud.

The really tactical guys are always impressed when I show up with my Black Ops 2-inspired AR.
