Boomsticks: Gratuitous Gun Pr0n No.1

Springfield Armory Professional Model.


EDIT: What's kinda cool is that I just noticed that the Pro pictured at Springfield Armory's website is only about ten guns newer than mine, according to the serial number...

Nice gun, looks a lot like mine. Why the Roman gladius and helmet, though?

I thought the Pro-Tec helmet/Springer Pro and Roman legionary's helmet/gladius made a nice juxtaposition of 2000 years' worth of professional soldier's gear. Purely an artsy affectation...

That works for me; the gladius, like the 1911, was a proven winner, and was reliable in the hands of a a disciplined soldier.
Now, we may need to see a Garand next to a pilum for effect...
