  • I made the freakin’ FIREARM BLOG? One of my favorite “must-read” blogs? Oh that’s too cool. I have read every post here. I went all the way back. It’s so refreshing to see just… hardware. Great idea.

    I’m sure that my lists seem petty (and, to some extent… they are) but it was more of a “what the heck, this is on my mind, I’ll write it down, why not” deal.

    The “lust list” got so long that it was sort of embarrassing… so I decided to counterpoint it with firearms that I didn’t quite cotton to, for whatever reason. Afterward I thought “well that might be a big mistake hoss” but I wouldn’t slag on someone for owning them.

    For what it’s worth, neither list is comprehensive… I didn’t mention the .455 Webley or the SR9 or… so many others I dig. Or stuff I’ll never shoot again like the CZ-52 (handing it to your friend and having it KB in his hands… unforgettable!)

    Anyway… thank man.

    While I disagree with some of the stuff on the list, the Sig Mosquito and Walthers P22 are no no. Both guns are made out of pot metal. The slide will break in half after certain round count (low).

    Browning or Ruger .22lr pistols are the best. They are build to last.
