Somebody be honest with me - am I becoming a little bit obsessed?

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/File:MyPT92s-1.jpg

Side note: Old-school (1980s/1990s-vintage) nickel Taurus PT-92s in decent condition are getting to be surprisingly expensive on Gunbroker. I paid nearly twice as much for my new PT92 AFS as I did for my blued PT92 AF (which I bought two years ago now).

EDIT: For some reason, I can't get images that I uploaded to IMFDB to display in my posts. Any idea what's happening?

TBH, I've never found the Beretta 92/PT92 to be all that aesthetically pleasing and was glad when John McClane switched to a SIG in Live Free or Die Hard.

To each their own, but 80s/90s "Wonder Nines" are still my favorites to collect.

This didn't actually go through, I bought a really slick S&W Model 19-5 off him though. Also he still had the damn BDA I wanted




I also got a WASR-10 and stuck black polymer furniture on it, naturally all the 7.62x39 goes away within 2 months of me getting it, same as what happened when I bought an AK74 years and years back

The Model 19 is one of my favorites. Like potato chips I couldn't stop with just one.

I'm partial to them as well.

Love that S&W! Well, aside from the fact that I prefer the guns with the rounded trigger guards rather than the flared ones. (On Berettas/Tauruses, I have the opposite sentiments, but I think the S&W guns look better with the rounded trigger guards.)

The squared trigger guards on most S&Ws are also noticeably smaller at the front (I've noticed it mostly on 3rd gens, my 645 is "normal") and it's definitely something that could be annoying for big/gloved fingers. I really like the hook on my 645, but the checkering on my 4506 and 5906 guards is very comfortable

I might get a LNIB SW40VE (yeah I know) I found for $200, I want something to stick up at my dad's place in his safe; my SKS-D is going when I am able to get up there next. I also just got a Fireforce Ventures Rhodesian rig off a friend, and a Chinese Type 84 rig for my new WASR
