View Full Version : I took group pictures of all my non-1911 autos...

I have received several PMs over the last few months to take some updated group pics. This was a major undertaking and took me a long time to get everything in place. I had to move some furniture out of the way as well. ;)

I did not have the time nor the energy to set up my revolvers for a group pic today. However, before this month is out, I'll take a revolver group pic and have all my handguns in one thread. I'll include my 1911s at that time as well. :cool:

For now, this will have to do. My goal last year was to get my non-1911 and revolver collection to the same level as my 1911s.

Here is where I am so far. You'll see classic models, high end models, not so high end models, exotic models, plain models, oddballs, and even some of those new fangled polymer models. ;)

Let me know if you have a question about any gun in particular. Thanks

They are in no particular order, as you can see...

Well, the pics don't surprise me. Thats 's like a handgun history lesson right there. I respect and look up to you for all the time and money you put into your collection.
Also, thanks for taking the time to put the pics together.

The Coonan doesn't use a 1911 frame and has some differences internally.

I was raised so guarded with NOT telling anyone about our stuff. My dad even cut his name off of the magazines and shotgun news etc. perodicals that came through the door!
I wish I could relax but it's been hard given the being raised that way. I admire your ease, maybe someday I'll work on getting there!
I certainly appreciate looking at your weapons, thank you for posting.

It is really something to behold in their entirety. And that's not even showing the 1911's, revolvers or long guns.

bac, sweet collection, diggin the Sphinx--no Lorcin love? Jennings?

You know bac, you really need a Jennings in there. PM me your name and FFL contact info (assuming he takes deliveries from nonFFLs) and I will be sending you mine. Just think of it as payment for all the drooling over the years. My wife has never been to this site on her own, but she knows your name.

That Jennings is a crazy story about value. I paid $50 for it new 20 years ago. The magazine catch spring was too short (making the gun a jammo-matic) until I robbed the spring out of a ball point pen (my wife's pen incidentally). Never had a lick of trouble from it since. Surprisingly accurate too considering the size of the gun and the lack of sights. I have a Beretta 21A now so I never use the Jennings anymore. It might as well be the low point of your collection.

With the current gun price craze that Jennings should be worth at least $20 by now. Promise me you will take a family shot with the Jennings in pride of place in the center would you? I will consider myself adequately rewarded then.

If they're really collectible and have never been fired, chances are I don't shoot them. However, I shoot 80-90% of the guns I own.

Bac, my friend I tried to use one of your picture as a desktop. Because your picture goes up and down instead of side to side it became destorted a little. The main reason I can't use it is because it is too busy!:rofl:

Too many handguns behind my icons. I could not see my icons very well.

Went with me shooting a FN 249 SAW left handed with the belt hanging down. Moved some the Icons around in the background so I could see them.

Bac, my friend I tried to use one of your picture as a desktop. Because your picture goes up and down instead of side to side it became destorted a little. The main reason I can't use it is because it is too busy!:rofl:

I just showed this to the WereWife
"See? This guy has way more than I do"
She said, "fine, get the Wilson"

Thanks!!!!

I thought this was a good idea and gave it a shot. I just showed my wife bac's pictures and said "see!". She responded "I want to see what in your safe".

Absolutely incredible. Have you ever sat down and figured out what you have spent amassing such a fabulous collection? Not asking for the number, just curious if you have ever done so. One day you need to have an expert over to place a value on your collection. So damn jealous. In order for me to buy something I have to sell something- so my firearm count always stays the same, although pistols are always changing. I always enjoy reading your posts and living vicariously through your new acquisitions.

Thanks for the kind words.

I know exactly what I've spent on my gun collection. I keep all that stuff on spreadsheets. :)

Bac as always I have really enjoyed looking and drooling over this marvelous collection of yours.
I saw some of my favorites, some I always wondered about and some I had never ever seen.
It is by far the most extensive collection I have ever seen especially when I add the nice 1911's from the other thread.
I can't wait to see them all together including the wheel guns.
Fantastic is all I can say.
As always thank you for sharing.

out of all the 9mm, which 2 are your favorite shooters?

My favorite 9mm is the Hi-Power.

As far as shooters go, I'd have to say the S&W 952 and probably my Pardini or one of my P210s. :)

I actually found a S&W 952 at an obscure LGS in the middle of nowhere. I drooled, they handed it to me, and sadly I think my hands are too big. Just didn't feel right. I know nothing about the gun but it seemed like there was no undercut below the trigger guard which forced my fingers to bunch up. Pointability was incredible though. Kinda glad it didn't feel exactly right because I'd a had a hell of a time explaining the $1,800 price tag to the wife. Never laid eyes on one so I'm not sure how that price compares.

I have been watching them on Gun Broker for a while. (Ever since bac told us that Smith stopped making them alone with the 945).

Strange thing is there have been quite a few listed since then. $1800 is in the middle. No one will sell theirs for that little but no one will pay that much either. The listings just keep repeating over and over because the reserve or starting price has not been met.

If one of our LGS had a S&W 952 for sale at $1800 I would try to negotiate a lower price or trade something I have several of that were purchased at a very low price (such as AR15's) and work out a trade.

I look at that and want to shoot myself in a fit of depression. Unfortunately, I can't find a gun because BAC has them all.

And even after laying all of those out, somehow, there will not be one oil spot on that carpet....

My favorite 9mm is the Browning Hi Power. It would certainly be one of my older models.

I have a few 1911s that would be my favorite 45ACPs. They are not pictured.

Maybe if it were "If you could only have one safe."

Curious to know why the BHP is your favorite. Is it the historical factor? I've been so tempted to get one but it just looks to me that I'd get hammer bit every time. Being 6'5" make the BHP look small in my hand.

I've always loved the history, looks, the ergonomics, etc.

I love the way they shoot. :cool:

I never got bit by one either, though my hands are not big.

I'll take a pic of it with my Desert Eagle over the next couple of days. You are not the first to mention that, but the two are nothing alike other than a first glance appearance from a distance.

Thanks for sharing and I agree with the concept of not living in fear (which is much different from being prudent and alert.)

Ever think of adding a Beretta (not Stoeger) Cougar to the 9mm lineup? I had a Beretta Cougar L model, and the action was smooth as glass. Only reason I got rid of it, was a friend wanted it badly, and I wanted something he had so we traded.

I had EDC'd mine for a few years.

bac1023
02-20-2013, 08:42
Yeah Bucky, a Cougar is also on my list to get. :cool:

That said, I do have a PX4, which was basically the gun that replaced it in Beretta's lineup. They have some similar features.

Here are the two guns together. The Delta certainly shares a similar profile to the Desert Eagle, though much smaller and lighter.

The two are totally different internally, as you can imagine. :)

This pic does show you how massive the Desert Eagle is, because the Delta is not a small pistol by any means. :cool:
