At this rate, I'm going to need another safe

This has been a banner week for pistol acquisition here at the Freehold, with 5, yes, you read correctly, 5 new pistols jumping into the gun safe.

Being the resident gun guy at work, if a coworker ever wants to sell, it seems I'm their first contact. One such needed some quick cash, so I picked up a very nice if dirty Smith and Wesson Model 12...

A Ruger Mark I, well-loved (to the point a lot of the bluing is gone and the safety has some issues from wear)...

and the gun I'm calling Frenchie, a Manufacture Francaise D'Armes in what I think is .25 ACP, dating from around the time of WWII, I think. (Info on this one welcomed.)


Today, I worked a gun show table for my club, and parted with the coin for two new guns, This first is the new Ruger Single 10 in stainless...

and the next is a Smith and Wesson Model 617 with a 4" barrel.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some cataloging and some cleaning to do. With some (probably considerable) luck, a range report on at least some of these will follow in the next few days.

And yes, the menu for the next few weeks is heavy on pintos beans, cornbread and peanut butter. :-)
