Actually, the lock "hammer mechanism" is original, very old. That's what he started with. He built the gun around it.

9 mm? Either a model 17, 19, 26 or 34.

There is no Glock model 9.

Re: .45 Carry Gun


While I really appreciate the photos and love talking guns...you'll never catch me posting pics and I definitely won't be giving the gestapo an inventory of what to come and attempt to take. Call me paranoid but I'd rather be prepared and wrong than unprepared and right

I grew up in a house FULL of guns - all loaded and none locked. How useful is your cordless drill without the battery anyway My Popaw had a gun within arms reach literally everywhere in the house. Oddly enough, as a child I knew better than to even think about "playing" with one. My kids have the same mentality - and my daughter is the 2nd best shot in the house at 11yrs old.

Glock 9 mm. Its a model 17. I've never read the model #, still haven't. I'm clearing brush on my father in laws place. I bought it from him a long time ago, he has a lot of guns. He says its a second generation, from the 80s.

That's just paranoia. Millions of people have a right to guns and I'm exercising my right to have them. If I have to live in fear of showing pictures of my right to own guns than we have all lost.

I don't live in fear. In fact, showing photos and talking about guns protects my right more than it does to hinder it.

Blood was shed for my right to display photos, no different than a gun show etc. It's absurd to be afraid, it actually hurts the cause. I'll let others be afraid but not me or my family.

I'm proud to be a gun owner. It's my right.

What if you're wrong

Keep in mind I agree with you - we aren't adversaries on the subject of gun ownership. I just prefer to play it safe.

edit: You also live in a MUCH less densely populated area that I presume has waaay less of a police state mentality. There are parts of this country that are measurable more "free" than others - that I can assure you.

Fear and common sense are two different things.
Am I a gun owner? Show up in my driveway unannounced and find out.

Re: .45 Carry Gun


I have a right to own guns, this is absured. Should sport shops and gun stores hide the guns? When everybody goes hunting should ee pretend we are not? Should gun magazines stop printing because of fear? When I go out shooting at the range should I hide?

Taking a photo of a gun? Give me a break, being in fear of that is about as unconstitutional as it gets. Common sense is most active when citizens promote and be proud of the guns they own. That in itself helps protect the very right we have. I'm afraid you have it backwards.

I couldn't imagine living a life of fear like that, couldn't even begin to imagine. This is the United States of America, the Federal Government doesn't own it.

You may not be living in fear but denial is obviously a big part of your daily regimen

Have you been paying attention for the last few years or do you live way up there in the woods and news reaches you slow

Re: .45 Carry Gun


There's a group in the next town over. They take this gun thing to a whole different level. Their always packin heat. County commissioner meetings, courtrooms, town meetings, they get a little riled up to. This makes people nervous, and I don't agree with it. People shouldn't have to feel threated like that. It's guys like these that make it difficult for us to protect our freedoms.

The leader of the group got a disturbance call on him in the middle of the night. I went to school with the officer that responded. He was wise to him though and knocked on the door and then hid around the corner. Sure enough he came out ready to kill somebody. It was quite a standoff, but the officer won out. My point is this guy has done way more harm than good trying to protect his rights.

Denial? A child knows the best way to protect something is to promote it. The gun right groups must be wrong then? The gun forums with hundreds of thousands of members must be wrong also.

Imagine if you told our founding fathers to hide guns. Lol

It's laughable if not childish.

That's an entirely different topic than talking about a gun and showing a photo of it. Entirely different.

That group is in the same category as "pull in my drive way and find out". Those people hurt the cause.

You misunderstand. I never said hide anything - I said it's foolish to advertise what you have. Big difference. If you think there are not factions within this government who would love nothing more than to abolish the 2nd Amendment you are delusional. The numbers of people in those factions have steadily increased for years - that's fact. Should those people ever prevail, where the do you think those in charge are gonna look first?? Common sense tells me its all the people who have advertised the firearms they have. Knowing your rights isn't going to stop them from being taken from you.

They don't see it that way, the statement above could have come right out of their mouths. They organize gun marches and such, IMO these do nothing but upset the ones that are on the other side of the fence.

I agree that if you want to post picks it is fine, but if you think there's no chance they will take your guns, you should just look around the world a bit.

Oconomowoc - quick question. Name one government in history, besides the Swiss, that hasn't eventually figured out a way to disarm its citizens? I'll wait.
