A Great Day

I went to the NRA in Fairfax this morning. Put 40 rounds through the Garand and a dozen mags each through the Kimber 1911 (45 ACP) and the Springfield 1911 (9mm).

Then I spent a couple of hours in the museum.

A beautiful cased 1911A1 with a .22 LR conversion kit.

Hermann Goering's Merkel shotgun.

Julian S. Hatcher's Colt single-shot in .22 LR.
He wrote "Hatcher's Notebook".

A Fabbri O/U shotgun with bulino-engraved nudes.

A unique double-barrel bolt-action rifle, magazine-fed!

A beautiful FN 1910.

A Browning B-25 shotgun.
The engraving on the receiver shows The Man Himself, sitting at his drafting table.

My photography skills do not nearly do it justice.

Some movie guns: Nathan Fillion's gun from "Firefly".

Javier Bardem's silenced shotgun
from "No Country For Old Men".

Colt 1911, serial number 4.

Savage 1907 in .45 ACP, serial number 1.

And serial number 2.
