    I'm old with a kid so I don't really party for my bday any more. Instead buddies and I went to an indoor range and had a blast shooting up some targets. All pistols, 45 and 40 caliber. I personally like glocks. I forget what the other makes were.

    SWEET!! I love the vintage guns.

    Nice collection.

    OMG! Beautiful!

    One of these days when I get my finances together, I will start a collection. Nothing too fancy because I would like to fire them and feel the different eras of technology. Lets say I purchased a replica of the WWII Garand. How close would it be to the feel of the authentic one?

    I forgot to mention that's also a replica. I can't afford the real thing. It's made by Pietta of Italy, I believe.

    Cap and ball revolvers are inexpensive. You can get one for less than $300 at midwayusa. They are fun to shoot. You just need to find a place to shoot them. Most indoor ranges won't take them.

    I have a rebuilt Garand. It's just like the real Garand. It has no collector's value but works quite well. I need to find some pictures to post.

    I finally went and picked up my new Springfield XD45 service about 2 weeks ago.

    Before my dad went in for his operation, we went out shooting. This thing is accurate as all get out! At 20 yards I was getting 3" groups of 10 rounds. Bought 2 extra mags and a Blackhawk Serpa CQC holster, which really is nice.

    How do you like your XD? I'm thinking of getting a sub-compact in 9mm. I need something for concealed carry so I can defend myself against black people trying to rob me.

    I really like it. I was going to go with the .40 sub-compact, but I handled both and it was just too small for my hands. The extended magazine helped, but it still felt small since I'm used to my big ass .357 S&W revolver. I like the grip better than the Glocks and the Sig I shot. It's very well balanced, especially with a full mag of Federal HydraShok rounds.

    The only drawback wasn't a fault of the gun. The local dealer I bought it from ordered wrong. I WANTED the 5" tactical model, but he got the 4" service. I hummed & hawed for a couple days before deciding that an inch shorter may be better in the long run.

    My friend loves his compact 45 model. He even sent it back to Springfield for a trigger job to make it better. He has an HK USP expert, but I think he likes his XD more.

    Hey Stalk, I thought I saw some pictures of you and your M4 with an optic on it? I'm wondering about throwing one on mine and curious if you took yours off for a reason. I shot mine last week and the iron sights seemed pretty damn accurate...is an optic worth it?

    Yes, it does have a red dot sight on it. Here's a picture of how it's currently configured. The front sight was shaved, rear sight/handle removed, flat top installed, folding bi-pod installed, and a nikon red dot sight. I think the red dots are wonderful for what I use the rifle for. It's mostly a plinking rifle, definitely not a varminting rifle.

    The Nikon red dot I purchased was about $290. It has four different dot sizes and 10 brightness levels. I love the red dot because it's much easier to co-witness a shot (keep both eyes open while shooting). Follow up shots are much faster and target acquisition/range estimation is much easier with both eyes open. Red dots make pretty much everything faster and easier, aside from the fact that you need to turn them on before you shoot.

    Also, any high-quality red dot won't have parallax errors. Meaning wherever the dot is, that's where the shot will end up regardless of head position. Comparing that to a scope, you need to have all the optics lined up or you won't hit shit. This makes follow up shots much quicker since you just let the dot fall back onto the target and you have your next shot. No re-welding your cheek or getting the iron sights back in line. Dot on target = Boom HS!

    Cool, thanks for the info!

    Would that be a Nikon Monarch? I found one on eBay currently being bid at ~ $30.
