Since this is supposed to be a gun blog (albeit lately it hasn’t been much of a blog at all), I thought I’d change tack and, you know, post something gun related.
Last week my dad asked me to take a couple of guns that he no longer had need for and that I didn’t want, and see what I could get for them. So I took them to my favorite Merchant O’Death and was very pleasantly surprised at what the shop was willing to give me for them. While I was there, MOD once again brought me a couple of things out of the “Special” display case, trying to tempt me. This is usually a very bad thing for my wallet. The first thing he showed me was a 6″ 3-screw Smith Model 29, a Dirty Harry special – beautifully blued, no lock, hammer-mounted firing pin, in very good condition. I haven’t succumbed to .44 addiction yet, so I was able to resist temptation.
However, when he pulled this one out of the case, I couldn’t help myself:
That’s an old Clark Custom
IPSC Open class Bullseye gun probably from the early late 80’s 90’s. (See first comment.) It would be equally good as a bowling pin gun. Check this thing out:
It followed me home. Soon as I get a chance, I’m going to see how it shoots.
