I like my husband's Glock 9mm but I don't fire it anymore since my hand is not strong enough to remove the slide for cleaning. DK would break it apart for me but if I can't handle all aspects of the gun myself I shouldn't be shooting it. Lisa

I have yet to fire a Glock very interested in the trigger safety and how it works.. Mostly its all about vintage to me but in the near future I will purchase a 1911 compact probably in a Springfield.

Here is my Colt 1902 .38 cal. its 105 years old and fires like a new modern firearm, very fun to shoot low recoil too.

This one is a WWI Colt 1911 .45 cal. my Grandfather brought this home from the war its 98 years old it looks rough but it fire flawlessly fun to shoot with quite a kick compared to its predecessor the model 1902

I have a Marlin 336 also , but it has the short barrel. it is called the Maurauder barrel. I bought it used in 1968 from a Ct. state police officer. Once, I had to replace the rear site elavator and took it to the manufacturer (they were close by in North Haven) to make sure I got the right one. They took it from me at the door and brought it into the shop. They came back with it all polished up and ready to go. The guy told me I should hold onto it because it was fairly rare, as they never made that many with the short barrel. It makes a great brush gun as you can tuck it right under you'r arm.

Two of my favorites, as well as concealed carry pieces...

1) KAHR Arms K9 Elite 98 9mm
2) KAHR Arms P380

I am a slim fella and have a hard time concealing a firearm, so in the summer months I carry the 380 and in sweatshirt weather I carry the 9mm... I'm a huge fan of KAHR Arms...
