Hey guys, name's Tom im 20 born and raised in Candicornia. I started with long bows and compounds when I was young and never got exposed to real deal rifles and pistols untill I was 18 and my friends and I would go rent and shoot down at bullseye range (San Rafael?) I inherited some serious collectible pistols that date back before and during WW1 from my great grandpa who served (still looking for his diaries, he also was involved in chasing down Pancho Villa? I believe)
anyone here an expert with items like that?

I shoot Gamo Pellet guns and a bear compound bow, and....caresoft from time to time :o
been itching to buy an AR for a while now though, soon hopefully.

Love the site, been reading here for a while but recently decided to be a member.

Yea, would love to see the guns you're talking about. If those kind of firearms interest you, go check out our curio and relics forum

okay thanks for those replies, cause I was wondering where to post them. I gotta wait on a buddy of mine to let me use his nicer camera to take some pics, hopefully tommorow.
I'm gonna post first a Colt 1911 issued with my great grandfathers name inscribed on the slide was used in WW1, then a Mauser pre-production version I believe that I think might have been the batch issued to the Italian Royal Navy pre-WW1, not positive. Again I'll get pics up ASAP
