*DISCLAIMER* Yes I made sure there were no bullets in this before I took the pics. ALWAYS make sure you AND someone else clear a gun before handling it. BE SAFE. BE REAL SAFE. ok?

 

Totalman's newest collectible... Smith and Wesson Model 681 .357 Magnum with Delaware State Police insignia etched into the side of the stainless steel. For me wanting to be a state trooper, this service revolver holds a special place in my heart, as it served on the force and was retired over 20 years ago. (im going to try to get a better camera so that I can post a clear picture of the detail of the insignia). it was owned by one of our S.O.R.T. (Special Operations Response Team aka SWAT) members. beautiful piece in near-mint condition (hasnt been fired in 20 years) and has a colorful history. one of under 1300 total guns made with the insignia, and that includes .357 model 681s, .38 caliber S&Ws, and S&W shotguns with the logo. quite a lucky find for me. 4-inch barrel, original (I think its oak) handle, stainless steel, custom trigger and hammer (has a single action trigger pull of what feels like nothing... I think he said .5 lbs)

 

Heres the one with the clearest view of the insignia

dead secksi tim. I need a new comp soon... and a new copy of sacred so I can get online...

 

soon to come - Pictures of Total's new rifle *circa last night at about 630 pm) lol... I need to stop going to the shooting range, or I will never stop buying guns... it's an old stevens model 62, .22 caliber, synthetic stock, 20.5 inch barrel, 10 round magazine. weighs 5 pounds... yes, that rifle weighs less than my most recent handgun buy. I recommend if you're into "plinking" or squirrel hunting, or anything like that, get one... its around 90-100 USD, most accurate .22 rifle I've ever shot. PS I do not advocate for the killing of little rodents or animals, and I personally don't practice that way of life. I shoot paper targets safely at a range, and I do not advocate doing anything unsafe with firearms. just my little spiel, be safe and have fun, thats what life's for!

some very nice purchases made here gang. Total, even though guns very much frighten me, it's still a beautiful piece, the workmanship in these photos is beautiful. My Uncle has an extensive gun collection that he showed us while we were all down in potomaq village once for Christmas (is that how they spell it lol) and it's easy to see how they can become collector's items, very weighty pieces with huge amounts of history all connected.

 

And Tim...new computer...sigh... drool... ahhhh, I'm slowly goin green , lol...

 

Looks like that's definitely gonna take you through to Christmas

 

:P

Heh we inspire each other I guess!

 

I've been nosing around trying to learn more about how Linux works for quite some time, but haven't dug in deep yet.

With the experiences from others on this board, I feel more confident I can get it running etc :P

 

On a side note: I've spent under €30 on the stuff!

The magazine+Ubuntu disk was €9

The HDD was €15, it's completely new but I bought it second hand from a guy on a Dutch tech forum.

The cable was a whopping €3 :pitcher:

Wireless headphones :) €40 for a real class A brand!

Daily on-line offer over at iBood.com, at least €20 cheaper than anywhere else.

That being said, it's very hard to get your hands on one here in Holland, can only find 'em in 2 stores.

My 2400 was acting up a bit, one of the ports went bad, ah well it happens. Keeping it as a backup card.

Went with the second hand thing again, spent €40 for a 7900GS TOP (TOP meaning 20% overclocked).

Cooler was idle quite noisy, when gaming it was like a vacuum cleaner, so I purchased a new silent one.

I'm a happy camper again!
