Number One Gun


My very first firearm. Isn't it cute? It's a Taurus PT-111 9mm.

A fine addition to the Castle extended Arsenal... Can't wait to help you take it out to play :-)

Heh -- love the porcine graphic, John - very fitting! I'm sure the verification string was no accident ;-)

Hmmm - maybe for this shooting event I should break out the Dan Wesson .357 for fun as well? It hasn't been out to play in far too long.

Just had an idea - all the Denziennes take picks of fave pistols in that general pose.

Have fundraiser for Project Valour where guys guess which pistol rack belongs to who...?

I learned the graphic from Cassandra's oinkers.

And, on the fund raiser - they have to pay to even get to see 'em.

We're no dummies here at Argghhh!

We just play one in the blogosphere.

Don't know anything about pistols, that one looks very petite. Wow.

Enjoy!

And John, that sounds like an awesome idea. I might even borrow some weaponry in order to pose. However, mine would be too easy--just look for the one with the smallest "background scenery," haha!

You should have a lot of fun with your PT-111. If the trigger on yours feels 'gritty' just do what I did. Get a couple of snap caps and spend a weekend doing dry fires. Normally you wouldn't need a snap cap to dry fire a PT-111 but if you're doing a lot of it I think it's better to have it.

Mine point shoots well and conceals easily.

Oh, and if you haven't field stripped it yet, the key to fixing it after you get it 'locked' (and you will) is to turn it over and press up on the back end of the barrel. Then turn it back right side up and press the back end of the barrel down a bit as you pull back the slide to let you put the assembly pin back in. Otherwise it can ride up over the pin and get stuck.

John, sounds like fun. Then again - alla my pistols have been imaged at least once on my blog, so I'll be easy to guess.

Barb - that all depends on how we approach it.

Regardless - we make the oinkers pay to play.
