What good gun-owner's group would be complete without a show-off thread? Lets see what you're packing!

I've got an Ithica 12GA shotgun with some nice engraving and a permanent adjustable choke on the barrel, a Daisy BB gun I've had since I was old enough to plink soda cans, and a Norinco "Sportster" style SKS-D that's got a thumbhole stock, accepts AK clips, and has a shorter barrel than other SKSs. I'll try to get some shots of the Ithica up at some point.

Interesting. I don't have much detail on my Ithaca, I need to do some more research on it and figure out what exactly it is. The engraving has dogs chasing deer on one side and waterfowl flying from a lake on the other if I remember correctly.
I'll check into it. I haven't even looked up anything about it really, but it is a very nice gun and not too heavy either.
I just looked it up and it appears my Ithaca was made in early 1949, and I'm not sure if the choke is aftermarket or stock since all the examples of it I've seen lack the adjustable choke. If it's aftermarket whoever mounted it on there did a very good job. I'm proud to have it. The gun apparently has a good history of military, police, and hunting use.
I have a 12 gauge Mossberg model 835 ulti-mag pump shotgun, Rossi model 62 .22 LR, Savage model 93R17 .17 cal., Ruger M77 .30-.06, Chipmunk .22 LR, and a Taurus PT 1911 .45. I use the shotgun to hunt birds with my german shorthair. I use the .22's for my kids to shoot targets. I use the .17 for shooting coyotes. I use the .06 for deer and elk hunting. I just bought .45 for home defence. I am moving from my small home town to Salt Lake City.
Well, not really showing off my collection of guns but had to share it. This looked like the best thread. . .

Just spent this Saturday taking a Tactical Carbine Class and have a few pics from it. It was a blast!! Lots of drills on mag changes and getting on target from the low ready. Shooting while moving to either side. Shooting while moving forward. Stoppage drills, and more. The most fun I have had in a long time!!

In the class photo, I am the one on the far left with the khaki shirt and Boonie hat.

Oh, and what I am running in the pics is a Rock River Lower receiver, Keystone A2 Upper, Light contour barrel with a mid length gas system. Smith flash hider, and a wilderness 3 point sling. And you gotta love the "tactical" extra mag in the front jeans pocket. .
I'm not one to brag about what I have (because I was raised to be paranoid about potential thieves), but I am absolutely in love with my new Ruger Mini-14 stainless steel Ranch Rifle.
I have a Glock 20 and am currently getting back into shooting. It is a bit expansive to shoot but was my favorite of all of the guns I have shot so far. I use the Glock 19 if I am going to be doing a lot of shooting. The grip is a bit too short for me but the rounds are cheap compared to 10mm as you all know.

My registered firearms are a 1952 Russian SKS, with aftermarket ATI Fiberforce Draganov type stock, scope mount (picture shows my dot scope) and my home built muzzle brake.  As well, I have a Ruger Mk1 (1976 commemorative), with bull barrel, and a Regent 1911 A1 .45 auto, with Thai rosewood grips, and my home built V-6 compensator (I'm a hobby machinist, with a lathe and milling machine).  Yes, we Canadians, even we left-wing Canadians, can own firearms.

I'd be concerned if they didn't. Also, your images are thumbnail sized. Hard to see that machine work.
I tried to up-load the picture off my computer, but it wasn't working to well, so I put the link from my Ficlr account. Ya, that pic sucks. Let me try it another way - http://www.flickr.com/photos/harvestsunset/5291691412/sizes/l/in/ph...

My collection is not what it used to be, but I still have a few nice pieces stuffed away in my Liberty Franklin 50. I am an NRA certified firearms instructor, so I use some of these to teach classes with. The rest are mine for home/vehicle protection, or concealed carry. By vehicle protection I mean I have a Serpa holster attached to the side of my seat complete with rail attachment for a tac light. Easy access while in the vehicle. No need to reach under the seat belt and then shirt for my carry gun. And before you ask, yes it is perfectly legal in Florida to carry a gun at the ready in your vehicle. Concealed, or in plain site. And no one can tell you to leave a public place, or a workplace because of the gun in your car. I love this state's gun laws! Now if we could just pass the open carry law.
