Keep in mind that Arabic doesn't translate well into english, it's like Yoda-speak.

I'm not opening the safe, but I have these 2 on the table, ready for range duty later today.

Big one is Glock 22 .40 nightstand/home defense
Little one is Kel Tec PF9 9mm daily carry

Incidentally, the PF9 is the perfect size for a Miata's center console.

2nd pic shows the G22's internal laser. It's a hard thing to photograph without a tripod, plus it strobes on and off making it harder. Camera on full auto mode, hall lights were on and the flash activated too.

Ark, what do you feed your G23?
I haven't fired mine yet, but I picked up a couple boxes of Winchester 165 FMJ at wallyworld last night for shooting at paper. They didn't have any defense ammo, so I'll get the pleasure of buying some at the range today.

No worries. You're obviously a classless loser who has no idea what an upscale dress watch is. Maybe something huge with lots of dials and diamonds on the bezel is more your speed.

Did not try the laser at the range until about 4th or 5th mag. By then, the laser was too dirty to be seen through the florescent lighting. A typical real world engagement is limited to a very few rounds, so I don't see this as any problem. Unit is non adjustable. Eyeball says it's a tad off to the left. My former Army special operator friend who went to the range with me concurs, but it's untested.

My friend shot well with both weapons (he can completely knock the 10 ring out of a target). His impression of the G22 was very positive (after telling me I shouldn't get a Glock last week). He did not care for the PF9.

I'd have more if not for the lame-*** CA gun laws... mostly just for home protection and the occasional clays...

FEG's take on the Browning Highpower. I was lucky enough to get a couple high-cap mags (16 rounds) which makes the 9mm cal. seem less "*****." Hogue treatment is nice. Easy to keep on target. Easy to clean. Cheap to shoot. Being in CA I can't take it ANYWHERE except to the range and back, in a locked case.


Standard 870. Good fun for clays, even with the tactical BS on it. It lives under my bed.

This kind of fascinates me. One of my friends has a gun. He is a hunter and has 3 hunting rifles. That is pretty much it. Except for him, nobody in my family or among my friends has any guns. I do not even know anybody that knows anybody that has a gun, except for him and he doesn’t really count, does he?

I've fed it everything from blazer and monarch to federal premium and hand loads... it really doesn't care and will feed/fire anything.

My standard carry rounds are Ranger SXT HP (180gr)... for target practice I shoot the standard white box Winchester FMJs from walmart (also 180gr I think).

Not quite MY collection but she was mine for 18 months:

Wish I could've carried a 9 instead. I thought I would've felt naked coming back to the states, but I carried it as little as possible.

I need to take my CHL class, been putting it off too long.

Dang. My gun hated the WWB 165gr that was at Walmart--had numerous FTF, especially in 1 mag. That mag also did not like Hydrashock. It's probably the mag springs, which Glock offered to send at no charge, but to be sure they suggested I bring it in today and have their armorer go through it.

Glock is awesome!! They detail stripped my weapon, cleaned it, replaced about a half dozen small parts plus the recoil spring assembly and slide lock spring. They also replaced all the mag springs and followers, though my problem was in the frame. 45 rounds (3 clips) of their blazer ammo later, and I'm a happy camper.

I've put nearly 10K rounds through my G23 over 4 years and have not had a single failure of any kind. What generation is yours?
