2005 "Got Guns" review

Alphecca didn't actually start the meme but I found it over at his blog and he links to a bunch of other gun bloggers. The meme is "What Guns Came To Live With Me in 2005".

So, just for fun, I'll play along. It seems like this has been a pretty good year for my gun locker, all the guns have come in and stayed and none left. I don't have pictures of my own, so I'll try to find some links. Now, how to sort them?

How about handguns first? The Smith & Wesson Model 19 with a 4" barrel was the first gun of 2005. I've gotten really fond of this revolver and I love shooting it. I think its actually had a pretty rugged life before it came to live with me, so I'm considering sending it back home for a makeover that it seems to deserve. It came home from a pawn shop just like the Kel-Tec P11, 9mm pistol a few months later. The P11 is a dandy shooter and conceals well too, though I need a better holster for it. Finally, just before the end of the year I bought a Ruger P345, 45 caliber pistol. I really like this full size, single stack pistol.

In my long gun cabinet, this year I added the Stevens Model 200 bolt action rifle in .223, the Winchester air rifle and my Yugoslavian SKS. All of these have been proven to be "just right" for what I wanted it for. I'm especially fond of the SKS and plan to add a 2nd one to the locker in the coming weeks. That way I can keep one nice and stock and original, the next one will get "improved".

That's my gun additions for 2005 and a prediction for 2006. Someday, I am going to have to add a 1911 45 gun to the locker too but for right now, I'm pretty set.
