Default Lazy sunday project - photographed all my handguns

Inspired by JCordell's recent post, I decided to spend a couple hours this afternoon taking a group shot of my entire handgun collection. I haven't done this since summer of 2010, 2 houses ago, and unfortunately no longer have a big sunroom that's perfect for gun photography, as well as I'm currently without a decent camera (Christmas is coming....)

First, the last one I did, back in 2010:



And now today:



Made for a fun project! And credit where credit is due, my girlfriend was over today and was very supportive of the whole project. She's actually studying at the dining table just out of frame. I have the coolest girlfriend ever.

Indeed you do! Nice load of iron you got there, as well - Looks like you added to it quite a bit over the last half-decade.

No Glock 18? No MK23 with LAM and suppressor?

Mk.23? Peh. Let me track down a stock for the LP08 and I'll show you a real offensive pistol!

Thanks for all the kind words. I'm hoping to do a proper gun vault in my next house so I can display them better but that's many years off.

Luger? pfft?

You want an offensive pistol? You've got one with your Webley!

Why, that's what Colonel Cooper said was the decisive factor at Rorke's Drift!

That being said; nice collection my friend. Love the history you have on display.

The Webley wasn't actually adopted until about 8 years after Rorke's Drift, at the time the standard issue revolver was the Adams Mk.III. Officers may have had private purchase Pryses though.

Hell if you want to take offensive revolvers, take a look at the Gasser Montenegrin or Reichsrevolver. The Gasser shoots a carbine cartridge and the Reivhsrevolver could easily be used to beat a man to death (which would probably be easier than trying to reload the bloody thing).

The Browning P35 High Power would fit the bill for defensive purposes. Also so would the Radom.

No, you want a Colt Walker revolver for your offensive pistol.

Obviously the only sensible choice for an offensive handgun is this.
