Jed's new toy.

First off, congrats to Jed at Boots and Sabers for exercising his rights. Go look at his sissy 10mm two-tone yuppygun. I have to go easy on Jed, he's a recovering Air Force type who's trying to be a lawyer, so obviously someone dropped him on his head when he was young. But, he's just so darn cute! that I cut him slack. (No worries, WonderWife, No Worries, I'm not going over to Andrew's tastes in sleeping partners!)

Ya'd think if a fella wanted a Browning Hi-Power, he'd get the ultimate expression of one, made in Canada before the Canadian Gov't got soft in the head - one of John Inglis' Mk I* pistols. With shoulder stock.

The stock makes those long range shots at goblins and paper easier, thought I think the 500 meter setting is prehaps a tad optimistic given the sights and ballistics. It also is grrRRREAT! for concealed carry.

I mean, you are just trying to hide the pistol, right?

my best friend (he and I are both Canadians) owns a fine Inglis Browning 9mm. His is the standard military model. Nice pistol to shoot. Not much to look at, but if he wanted a yuppie pistol he would have bought one...

A man of most excellent taste, sir. Mine has recently lost those indecently new grips, replaced with fine old plastic grips, as provided to HM's forces and the Chinese. He was embarrassed to be seen in those yuppy (though, even he admits, very nicely made) wood grips.

It offended the old soldier in him.

Do feel free to continue dropping in.

The Inglis just doesn't look right in wood. The classic plastic is the only way.
