Adoption was easy
« on: April 27, 2018, 08:47:45 PM »
I just had to give these orphans a loving home. My 48th wedding anniversary presents to myself. Please don't tell my better half.

Not a big pistol fan but this Tarus 17HMR with a 12" barrel really peaked my curiosity.

Then the Tika T3X in one of the best classic cartridges spoke to me.

I felt bad for the Ruger Single Six 22Mag just sitting there quietly and so lonesome, I just had to bring him home.

SHOTGUNS! Can you ever have enough?

The Webley & Scott O/U was too sexy to leave there. The the Browning BPS 10gauge wanted to go for a ride with me.

You have a good heart, Paul, I'm sure those orphans will receive the care they deserve.

Looks like there will need to be a capital campaign soon to support the addition of a new wing on the orphanage.  So kind of you Dutch to provide each of them a loving home!  That Webley is a piece of art, and you'll have to let us know what you think of that long barrelled Taurus pea shooter after you give it a try.  Didn't realize they offered anything like that.

yari, Yes it's a code black patternmaster break/choke lead only. I'll run some #4 shot and see how it patterns. Not synthetic just a very unassuming wood. I think it "wood" look better in a gloss finish.

Mad, I to have never seen a Tarus pistol set up with this length barrel. I just love adopting the weird and unusual. Can't wait to punch some paper with it and see what it's working range is. I forgot to post the Webley's side etching.

nice of you to take them all home..love the bottom ejecting shotguns (not necessarily 10ga).  the .17 I've seen with 10 inch barrels never a 12" not a big fan of Tarus (weight and balance) but with the longer sight plane it might be OK...and the Single Six is one of the best made firearms out there (IMHO) whether in .22Mag .22lr or combo...just a really nice feel to it...Congrats on the whole lot have fun getting to know them...

Have the Ruger Single Six 22Mag with 22long cylinder also.  Keep it loaded with rat shot for snakes.

Looking Good Dutch!
