Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
And lastly for home defense, because pretty much everyone knows the universal language of “Chck-chck” and what comes next. Oh, by the way, the first load in this Mossberg 500 is a 20g 7 1/2 shot…so I can get my bearings…followed by hollow slugs…cause i wanna put the zombies down for good.

@SteveRicketts - very much so. The textured knubs on the exterior and the lip help keep in place while removing from pocket without need to use index finger. My MP 9 shield is fairly heavy for a pocket firearm, so, i have to make sure to wear a belt or proper fit in waist.

I have to admit I'm loving this thread. Probably it's my coastal conditioning, but never, ever would I have imagined that a "show your guns" thread would be the one that unites forum members of different political ideologies. So cool to sometimes find out that the divisions are not as deep as you can be led to believe.

Just noticed my typo, 308/7.62x51. And yes, I purposefully gravitated towards firearms that should have plenty of usable ammunition available for the zombie apocalypse. .22(cause inexpensive practice makes perfect), 9mm, .45, .223/5.56, 308/7.62, 20ga and 12ga. And no, I didn't show everything, just my favs.

I am always a little hesitant to share when it comes to my firearms, but here are some of my favs:

@Scifinator, growing up my old man taught me one of the number 1 rules of owning firearms is to NEVER and I mean NEVER advertise what you own. With that being said I suppose we show each other thousands of dollars in comics. I'm close to caving and sharing with you guys(keep in mind this doesn't mean my collection is that boss).

What's the purpose of this lesson?

Hhhhhmmmmm, a couple things come to mind. Maybe the old guy was worried he’d get robbed if the wrong people found out about his firearms. Or, maybe he didn’t want his sons talking about guns at school? These come to mind but since I was 10 I listened to him and never asked “what’s the point of this lesson?”.

I have to go through Hunter's Safety. Probably will do it next month. Only have it to do it once in your life, then you can simply get your hunting license each year.

I guess it depends on the area and what you have. If I had a legit Action Comics #1, you can bet there would only be a select few to know about it. I don't perceive any harm in others knowing that I collect comic books, though.

Well, since it's a PITA to get and keep restricted firearms in Canada (Licensed for long guns), I just picked up an Umarex T4E TR50 revolver and a load of hard rubber 50 cal. balls.

Since it has been proven that those who seek to hack and/or collect data from others on-line happens, I think your father was smart. He provided you with information that holds up well in today's electronic age.

(I'm surprised that some of the jpgs shown in this thread have serial numbers showing).

I would make a joke about filing them off, but I'm pretty sure that's against TOS since the sarcasm may be undetectable.

Pretty much. I didn't mean to rain on this discussion. Like I said, we post pictures of comics with the value of these pieces and the serial number is visible on a lot of them as well. My perspective just happened to be that of a city folk dad in 1990 that had boys in public school.

No harm, no foul. I was just interested in the reasoning.

I think that we, as a society, need to be less scared and more informed about these things. My dad said that his school had a Shooting Club back in 1982 lol. It's to a point where I am thinking that mandatory military training (I don't have any) wouldn't be such a bad thing for society. Information and discipline are typically good things.

In Montana you don't have to take Hunter's Safety if you're an adult. Though it's never a bad idea, considering one year a guy shot a llama thinking it was a deer.

Sadly, anyone in MI born after 1960 must take Hunter's Safety prior to obtaining their first hunting license.

I can't say that it's a bad idea. While I'm a veteran with firearms, I don't know jack-s^&* about hunting guidelines and etiquette.

Having some acreage to shoot at, the kids and I have been piecing together scrap from the junk pile into make shift targets. So I decided to make some home made target stands for our little gun range.

There are various PVC styles and builds on Youtube. While trying to keep the cost down, here are the stands that I assembled for less than $20. The cost could be higher, but I had some of the items already in my tool shed (PVC Glue, Paint, Scrap plywood, screws, staples etc..)


Parts I did have to buy:

1 - 10 ft 1 1/2 inch PVC pipe ($8)

4 - 1 1/2 inch PVC tee's ($1.60 ea ) ($6.40)

1 - 2 x 2 inch wood furrowing strip (8 ft) $2.79

Note: I did have to trim the 2x2 wood strips on my table saw to fit into the 1 1/2 PVC pipe.


Stands consist of:

6 - 12 inch pieces
1 - 20 inch piece
4 - Tee's
1 - 2 x 2 (8 ft) Furrowing Strip ( cut into 2 4ft pieces)
( you should have a 24 inch piece of PVC left over to use on the next stand )



I glued everything but the two legs on the upright cross member piece. This allows me to break the stands down to easily store or transport.





I can quickly assemble the upright piece in the field. I did see a guy on you tube fill the bottom legs with gravel and glue end caps on, but that added some additional cost, so I drilled 4 holes in the base legs to pin the stand to the ground for stability if need be.






Then add the 4 ft wood uprights, which I added scrap plywood, cardboard backing I had lying around in the rafters. I initially made the stand on the right at 18 inches wide and then decide to make the others at 24 inches wide to accommodate the wider targets.


We may take them out to the range tomorrow and try them out, depending on the weather.

Well I had my new Target stands out in the field and it was kind of windy so I used the stake hole to pin the stands to the ground which worked great!

The problem was that I choose not to glue the uprights to make the stands more modular. The wind ended up working the unglued uprights loose causing them to fall over.

I now have the uprights glued and they should work perfectly next time out in the field.
