  1. Other Handguns
    Ole Silverstring fell prey to an old man disease and was laid up for 4 weeks in bed. Surgery and a bit of recovery involved. But am back on my feet ( sort of ). Led singing at church this am (albeit sitting) and still had a little energy left so... I ordered these in few months ago, and they...
  2. PT92, TX 22 & Other Taurus Pistols
    I have spent the last few years collecting old iron. Picked up a few P series Sigs, A few 92 Beretta series, Some CZ75's, etc...One of my old pistols kept rattling around in the ole noggin. My PT 917CS that I gave cheap to my pastor several years ago. It would fit perfect on my Beretta rack. So...
  3. Millennium (Pro) Pistols
    After looking at these throughout the plandemic, I finally found one on GB at a good price $280+ship and tax. OTD was $330. It shows some minor scuffs on the slide finish, but frame is in perfect condition. Before I go into the shooting impressions, lets do a little comparison. This little...
  4. Other Handguns
    Sigs and AR's are taking up much of time lately. I've owned and sold a few Sigs in the past. In 2020 - 2021 my main push was to collect 2 each of the main 80 - 90's LE and Military pistols. I am almost done, just need another S&W gen 3 (prob a 5903) to fill out that rack. In the last 5 months I...
  5. Other Long Arms
    I've owned several 22LR bolt actions, but never could get great accuracy off the shoulder. I own a Rossi RS22 and a nice Ruger 10/22. Both have separate duties, the 10/22 is my main squirrel and small varmint rifle, the RS22 is just a lightweight toy (well ya know what I mean) for the younger...
  6. Taurus Revolvers
    Its taken a year but I am a tracker dude now. I purchased the 44 Tracker in early spring, and the Tracker 627 3 weeks ago. I paid around $540 for each. This size and weight is perfect for my needs. This beauty weighs 35.4oz's unloaded. The OAL is 8.75", width 1.5", height is 5.3". The tracker...
  7. Other Handguns
    These are both recent purchases and considered duty or service size pistols. The Sig was born around 2006, the M&P is a newborn from 2021. The Sig was about $650 otd and the M&P found for cheap on GB for $415 otd. Oh in case you don't know S&W has released there new versions of the M&P 2.0's...
  8. Millennium (Pro) Pistols
    I realized I haven't been reviewing my newer firearm purchases much lately..Work etc...have been distracting me lately. So I thought I would start with a simple no nonsense review of my 3rd in rotation carry pistol, better known as the "Truck" gun. This OD and black gem was purchased at my fav...
  9. Other Handguns
    What? a 45 compared to a 9mm. Has ole silverstring lost his marbles? Well hang in there a bit and find out🤪. I recently picked up two full size handguns. A Police trade 21SF (with armorers log) and a new Sig Sauer P320 full in 9mm. I shot both independently for their first session and realized...
  10. Other Long Arms
    I have tried a few 9mm PCC's over the years. Started with an older version of this PC Carbine, then moved onto a Sub2K, a few High Points and most recently an Extar EP9. But I came back to the PC carbine for its looks and accuracy. Looks???? Yep I wanted a rifle format , as this puppy goes up...
  11. Other Handguns
    The Beretta 92 series has had a long and fruitful life. My first exposure was a 92S surplus. It was a great first impression, but one of my buddies wanted it bad after I upgraded grips and added a d spring. So I tried Taurus's PT92, which is an excellent copy of the Beretta version. I owned and...
  12. PT92, TX 22 & Other Taurus Pistols
    Weather cooperated, so it was time to take out three new firearms for a test run. A new Beretta 92A1, new Ruger PC carbine, and the object of this review - the new Taurus GX4. My model of the GX4 came with two 11 round magazines. In a break from the normal Taurus box, the GX4 comes in a nice...
  13. Other Handguns
    I have been collecting icon's from the mid 80's through the mid 90's. First was my west German P226, then the CZ 75B, and now an American icon, the 5906: I found this ignored beauty on GB, and won the bid at $450. The seller sold cheaper due to the finish issue on the front of the slide. As you...
  14. Other Handguns
    I say unbiased because I have shot/owned almost every S&W semi auto during the last 10 years, and I feel I can give ya'all a real review. What they did right with this update, and what they got wrong. The new Shield is presented as previous M&P's, So-So cardboard box, manual, nice wrap, and in...
  15. Other Handguns
    I watch gunbroker often for old metal guns, but could never find an old P226 for close to precovid pricing..I know I am nuts!!! I decided to try out a web store I visit for old surplus metal guns and Eureka!! Iammo.com had 226's for a very good price, along with a bunch of gen 2 and 3 S&W...
  16. Other Handguns
    I bought several European firearms over the years, and it was time to go back to my roots. I owned a CZ75 PCRD several years ago and while I liked it, it never clicked. Fast forward to 2021, I have learned to shoot pretty well after the many 10's of thousands of practice rounds and a few...
  17. Other Handguns
    I've tried Brazilian 1911's, I've tried several Armscor/Rock Island 1911's from the Philippines, Owned a few Colts as well. So now it is time to look at a Turkish delight from Zig: The Tisas/Zig PCS1911 carry is a commander sized 45acp 1911 with quite a few upgrades from the factory. 4 1/4"...
  18. Taurus Revolvers
    So this saga begins with a search for a good 4" 38 for less than $300. I know...I was dreaming. I find one of these about every 4-5 months on gunbroker. Here I present to you a model 82 that looks a little rough, the seller's camera bringing out every finish issue.. He really needs to get a new...
  19. Taurus 1911's
    I am trying to be an equal opportunity gun buyer as proven by my last several purchases. Turkish Tristar 20 GA semi, Back to USA for two fine Smith revolvers and a Mossberg 22, Then the Philippines For a TCM/9mm, Back to USA for a Sig, Then to the wacky rev Moon and his Kahr TP45, on to Germany...
