I was always surprised how many weapons the population of America has
Firearms are fascinating pieces of equipment that have specific purposes for a job, thus so many calibers and configurations In addition to the history of the firearm themselves as well as the manufacturers. Truly amazing tools that are collected by many of us to be appreciated

And they take up a lot less room than car collections.

I've driven all the vehicles I own. I can't say I've shot all the firearms I've collected.:confused:
Me too with the antiques inherited from my Dad.

Back to “whatcha got” I’ve really come to appreciate the little Mossy mc2sc for being such an easy carry when I want and accuracy on the range. Their reverse engineering of the P365 and others is well done!

Have y'all seen what the Smith M&P auto loaders have been chambered in? 30+1 22 magnum. They've also done the same pistol in the 5.7. Gas operated delayed bolt, looks like new tech to me. Ugly, but pretty slick tech.

. . . . Ugly, but pretty slick tech.
Ugly? Enh. Eye of the beholder and all. I'm not sure the why for the .22 WMR. Easy to shoot, but ammo is kinda high. Just like the 5.7. I have the Ruger version and love it. Wishing it was easier to conceal; shoots like a dream. Fiocchi had the 5.7 selling at about 50 cents/rd, but it's gone up recently. They also started making sub-sonic 5.7. But that doesn't make sense. Impact = mass x velocity. The 5.7 doesn't have much mass, but it's moving at 1,900-2,100 fps. Dropping the speed to subsonic, is going to reduce its effectiveness substantially.

S & W has their new folding carbine (fpc) that will fit perfectly in a saddlebag or backpack; perfect for camping/hiking. Right now, it's only chambered in 9mm. I'm holding out for it chambered in .45. Ruger has a folding carbine chambered in 5.7, but it doesn't fit in a saddlebag. Both carbines use pistol magazines for convenience.

Only hunting rifles and some have rifled ones. But rifled in units. [Content deleted - CW] I don’t like hunting!
