Picture(s) A Day – 26 February 2010
It’s been a heckuva week as I’ve said before. I won’t go into it too much, but suffice it to say that I’ve had two stress related headaches. There’s going to be even more turmoil in the office. I’m glad I still have a job, but I’m also glad I’ve got some good friends I can rely on to help take the edge off after stuff goes sideways
Today was a bit of a trip through the wringer, but it got quite a bit better after work
That Glock 26 is the one I plan on getting when I get around to picking up a Glock. It’s the smallest 9mm Glock made, but that’s not the only reason I like it. While it fits my hands fairly well, it also happens to take any 9mm Glock magazines including the big 33 rounders
Just remember that the prices are always subject to change
The firearm you see above is a pretty cool one that’s regulated under the National Firearms Act of 1934 as an “Any Other Weapon” or AOW. According to the NFA, AOWs can be several different things. This qualifies as an AOW as it’s a smooth bore pistol. The Serbu Super Shorty is a 12 gauge pump-action shotgun that’s been cut down to just a 6.5″ barrel. It holds two rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber. Designed more as a breaching weapon for the military and law enforcement, it’s also a fun gun for civilians and there’s even a drop leg holster made for it :) While machineguns and suppressors transfer with a $200 tax, AOWs transfer on a $5 tax which makes them easier to afford. Still, at a (very low for this firearm) $650 (again subject to change), I still can’t afford one right now. But some day…
Now, I like going to New Frontier Armory / Infinite Arms any time as y’all might have figured out by now, but today was special – I got to pick up my Kel-Tec PF-9 after a month of waiting !!!
I brought it home and after taking a few pics, I took it and the magazine apart, cleaned all the factory oil, dust, and fouling from the proof shots before applying some proper lubrication and dry firing it with some snap caps to protect the firing pin :wink: I loaded it up with Speer Gold Dot 124 grain+P rounds (7 in the magazine and one in the chamber) and it weighed in at just over 18 ounces 8) I still have to take the class for my concealed carry permit before filling out the paperwork and all, but at least I’ve got a gun to fill that role.
I’ll probably shoot it for the first time on Sunday up at the Clark County Shooting Park when Uli and I go to play with the toys
Time to get some shut-eye for now – I get to work tomorrow from 1000 to 1400 :wink: Have a great day everyone
