    My dad asked me to clean his guns for him after our range trip today. I figured I would take the opportunity to snap a quick family portrait while they were all together in one place...

    They're just a good representation of these modern times is all...
    Multi manufacture-al, and the youngest just came out as being bi-caliber! She shoots both 22lr and 22wmr. The only annoying thing is how she insists on using gender neutral pronouns.

    That one is my favorite, too. It used to belong to my grandpa and came down to me a couple years after he died. I feel like I'm connecting with my family history every time I take it out..

    Haha! I'm reminded of the quote, "whoever has the most toys, wins!"

    Ok, if we're going to do family pictures, this is the best I can muster...

    Top - Notinco 1911A1 Government Model - pre Bill Clinton ban
    Center - Colt XSE Commander
    Bottom - Citadel Officers

    Sad to say, they were all lost to the Columbia in a boating accident... Breaks my heart...

    I only have a Star model B ex German Police and the most reliable auto I have ever owned. The thing will eat anything I shove in it and if I keep my thumb web out from under the nasty blood letting hammer it will shoot all day long without a hiccup.
