The only handgun picture I have. grin



I had what was called an open licence, that was for concealed carry.
I started with a Colt Python .357mag
Then changed to the (smaller) Ruger .357mag pictured, later changing again to a stainless Ruger with interchangeable cylinders from .22 to .22mag.
I had that for some years then turned it in to go to an outback station, interstate.
First permit was for conveyance of money, then having a good local sergeant, he changed to protection of bloodstock. grin

Here's an upstanding young chap, yet to learn the tools of the hunting trade. grin

My beloved Merkel 147-E I just love this gun.





Most of the firearms I've owned, I never taken a picture off.

I lost four through the infamous gun buyback.

A Ruger stainless "Ruger Rancher" .223
Remington police 870 12ga P/action shotgun
Ruger 10-22 that I'd won in a clay target shoot
Mossburg 12ga pump action shotgun.

As soon as the cheque arrived from the buyback I went straight in to the gun shop and bought another four. grin

I'm allowed any caliber center-fire pump action rifle from 16" barrel, yet I'm not allowed a .410 pump action shotgun without a special licence. Go figure that one out. frown


My Winchester Trapper





Marlin .44 Magnum



Mannlicher in .308 Very accurate straight out of the box.



An oldie. grin



Miroku 12ga sporter



Stainless Guide Gun





And a mug of Billy tea. laugh

It's a 12 gauge and I think it has a 36" barrel if I recall correctly. The old mule has a kick to her! laugh

I always wanted to take it out turkey hunting, but it is pretty hard to lug around the woods lol.

Back in the day, most guns had long barrels it seems. I often used to wonder how they went lugging them around on a horse, I guess when their were no other options it didn't matter. grin

These days an 18" barrel is prefered and 16" even better.
