A rarely seen S&W 3rd Gen 9mm Model 3906

Posted in Uncategorized on February 10, 2013 by recoiltherapy

Found this one in the Cabela’s Gun Library of all places, and they had it reasonably priced!

It was languishing amidst a whole case of PD trade in 6906’s.

I saw one pistol way in the back that looked to be in much better shape than the others, it also appeared to have a steel frame unlike the allot framed 6906.

One of the salesman fetched it out, and bingo….3906!

All steel, single stack 9mm. The 3rd GenĀ  successor to the Model 39.

Very soft shooting pistol with it’s all steel construction.



Interview with WV Senator Elmer Fudd….errr..Joe Manchin

Posted in Uncategorized on January 16, 2013 by recoiltherapy

This was from a meeting between Joe Manchin, US Senator from WV, and Keith Moran, President of the WVCDL.

This meeting occurred the day before President Obama’s speech on gun control…….


From the WVCDL FaceBook page….

Keith Morgan
Ladies and gentlemen of the WVCDL and West Virginia. Today, around 3PM I met with Senator Manchin. In any conversation with a person of that level of power, there are two conversations that occur at once. The first is the obvious and direct meaning of what is spoken. The second conversation is the meaning between the lines. In this case, neither is good. West Virginia, in my opinion, you have been sold out.
First, let’s talk about the direct conversation. It’s very simple. Senator Manchin supports a three-pronged approach that includes universal background checks, including private sales. He supports mental health-care reform. And he supports magazine capacity limits, and possibly other restrictions.
Further, he stated to me directly, that he believes 75% of West Virginians, like him, believe that the only purposes behind gun ownership and the second amendment are hunting and recreational shooting. He told me that defense is not an angle he considers or believes in, and that is specifically in the context of defense of self, and defense from tyranny. Perhaps now you understand why I’ve been too angry to update you on the results of the meeting. In case you’re thinking of stopping here, it gets worse.
Senator Manchin told me what the media will do if Congress (including the US House of Representatives) fails to pass an AWB and/or mag restrictions. “They will one, by one, put up pictures of dead children. They will show the carnage.” Considering that tomorrow, President Obama will be exploiting children by dragging them on stage with him while he outlays his plan, this is not a huge leap. And these are the words of a United States senator. We, and I don’t mean just West Virginians, I mean Americans, must prepare for this. That is a direct quote. Verbatim. We need every talking head in the conservative media out in front of this. Make it happen. Share this post far and wide.
When it became clear that we were not going to find common ground, and that Senator Manchin intends to support magazine capacity limits and other pointless gun-control laws doomed to failure, I told the senator that we would be there. We would be at every single event. We would be at every fund-raiser. We would be there, and the content of our signs would not be pleasant.
And now we get to the second conversation. The one between the lines. When I said we would be there, he said, “there won’t be any events.”
This confused me. No politician runs for office without fund-raisers and events. And I have to admit, it wasn’t I that grasped the meaning of this. I want to be clear, that the following was not stated. This was deduced by a confidant of mine, and I think she is correct. Manchin was honest. There will be no events. Why would a US Senator not need funds? This is because there will be no campaign. Joe Manchin is too young to retire from a position of such power. What does that mean?
West Virginia, this means that Joe Manchin has sold you out. It means that he has accepted some position, likely promised by Barack Obama, to place his boot in your neck in exchange for power.
Now you know. Now you know why for four hours, I was too angry to update you.

Problem solved! ObamaCare

We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t,
Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it,
and signed by a President who smokes,
with funding administered by a treasury chief who
didn’t pay his taxes,
for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any
benefits take effect,
by a government which has
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,
and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!

‘What the hell could possibly go wrong?’

Puma Hunter’s Pal Knife

Posted in Uncategorized on June 22, 2012 by recoiltherapy

Here’s another knife to look out for at swap meets, yard sales and pawn shops.

This one is a vintage 1973 knife. The older ones were sold in a green/yellow two piece plastic box.

The stag is outstanding on this one, and Puma is known for quality steel n their blades.

German craftsmanship is rarely a bad thing!

These vintage Puma’s can exceed $200 in value pretty easily in the larger knives, so be on the lookout!

Found this in the same shop as my recent 10mm rescue.
It’s a 1990 vintage Sig P220 in .45acp.
P220’s are single stack guns holding 8 rounds, although extended 10 round mags are available.
These are high quality firearms, try one out if you get a chance.
It’s not a double stack wonder pistol and there’s no polymer in it, but these are some of the best shooting pistols around.


10mm 3rd Generation Smith = Bad-assery on many levels

Posted in Uncategorized on March 7, 2012 by recoiltherapy

10mm is a bad ass handgun cartridge.

Ignore the wimpy current factory loadings (other than boutique outfits like Buffalo Bore), and find some old fullhouse Norma rounds, or better yet start reloading!

What better platform than an all steel third Gen S&W? None, I submit! This one is a 4.25″ barrel 1076. It takes a single stack mag holding 9+1 and has a frame mounted de-cocker (as a DA/SA SIG fan also, I prefer this type of action). It’s a sweet shooter, and has enough weight to soak up the magnum class recoil. Think .41 Magnum in an autoloader!

Besides the out-of production Smiths (they still offer it in a revolver), you can get 10mm chamberings from Glock, CZ (1911 platform) and a few others.
