It's fun show time!

Let's sing the fun show song!

Flintlocks and Flop-tops
And Number Three Russians
Black-powder Mausers
From jackbooted Prussians,
Shiny Smith PC's from limited runs
These are a few of my favorite guns.

Socketed bay'nets
On Zulu War rifles,
Engraved, iv'ried Lugers
That make quite an eyefull
Mosin tomato stakes sold by the ton
These are a few of my favorite guns.

Rusty top-breaks!
Smallbore Schuetzens!
And all of Browning's spawn
I just keep on browsing my favorite guns
Until all my money's gone.
Today I am going to buy something just for fun.

Allow me to suggest a S&W third generation gun. I am rediscovering my appreciation for non-polymer guns lately. I picked up one of these last month and it is a beauty:

No, I don't work for the company, and I'm sure you can find one in-state. But seriously it's a like-new gun from a major US maker for $350! And these guns are commanding similar process on the used market on Armslist and gunshows too---just an exceptional bargain IMO.

Oh, and a big thanks for clueing me in that the Indy 1500 is this weekend. I haven't been to one in the last 4-5 years and it just so happens I need some powder so I might make the trip up to Indy tomorrow to do a little browsing.

Is this one in the big room or the smaller one? Some 1500's are better (and bigger) than others.

I think the most funnest gun I ever owned was a 4" Model 10. That thing just seemed to shoot where I pointed it, wasn't obnoxiously loud yet still kicked enough to make you feel like you were shooting a... weapon.

I would think a nice used High Power would be much the same.

Enjoy. I rarely go any more. Why blow the $8 to get in when I don't really have a purchase budget anyway.

I have a certain blogger friend who works a table at the ones here and I have him look for odds and ends for me.

Buying something just for fun was how I got my first Colt firearm, a Model 1903 in the puissant .32ACP caliber.

I have been working on my Edward G. Robinson imitation ever since.

Robin said...

Not exactly "modern" but I bought a Star BM this week for that reason. $225 with three magazines.

Once the Remington R-51 hits the store shelves, I might have to buy a handgun "just for fun", too!

H&K P7.
Because, deep down, you kind of miss that blister on your trigger finger.

Buzz said...

I saw an R51 at Gander Mountain today, I'm pretty sure of it.
(I was still in shock from the $1200 sticker of the R1 next to it, so I may have been a little off-balance, but I'd swear it was a Remington 9 mil.)

Have fun with the Sphinx!

I check out the R51 at Rural King this morning.
Next 20% rebate sale they have, it's going in my collection.
Feels good in the hand, even if it is only a narrow single-stack, slips nicely into a front pocket.
Only unknown is the reported long trigger, since they won't remove the trigger lock for coonfingering passersby.
