Went by my favorite Fun Shop and walked out with this beauty today.
M&P Pro Series 9mm. It came with the tall suppressor sights and has the slide milled for a red dot. Also came with a bunch of adapter plates. I got it home and put my old Doctor that I had lying around. Works great, can't wait to get it to the range and try it out.

I like me some shotguns! I have since changed out some furniture and accessories, but here's a pic of a few of my favorites.
Top to bottom - Remington 1100 TAC-4, 18" Remington 870 and my fire breathing, ear splitting 12" Remington 870 SBS.

Shorty 14" 590A1 is here:
Experimenting with stocks, OEM one is full sized on a SBS. Have a Choate, ATI Talon & Hogue 12" coming. Will pick what I like best and throw the others on my 500's or up for sale.
Had some fun too:
Had a little fun today with an old dining room table on the farm... leaned it up to an earthen backstop and shot 10rds of 7.5 and 10 rds of 00 Buck from 15ft. Shot my Roadblocker from the hip so unsure if you'll be able to see the spread or any type of pattern. It was getting so dark I needed a flashlight to find my spent shells...

Starvel Star Firestar M45
The Spanish arms manufacturer Star produced the Firestar series in the 1980's.
Pictured below is the M45.
This compact .45 ACP included many desirable features for its day.
Not stainless steel, it's their proprietary Starvel electroless nickel finish.
I also have the M40 in .40 S&W. Both purchased on GunBroker.com One word of caution. Never visit that web site if you've been drinking.

A shout out to Kevin Vickers for killing that terrorist POS who shot up Canadian Parliament and killed 1 in Ottawa a couple days ago. Reportedly he used his S&W 5946 (RCMP issue) sidearm to end the threat.
"He is a hero, although, says his cousin, Keith, if you were to call him that he would shrug it off — and maybe even blush about it. He was a cop for almost 30 years and never shot anyone. He crisscrossed the country with the RCMP, from Calgary to Toronto, from Yellowknife to Burnt Church. He became the sergeant-at-arms eight years ago. On Wednesday, in a moment of crisis on Parliament Hill, he is credited with taking a life, to save who knows how many." National Post.
Finally acquired a 14" 590A1, (51681) waiting for it to arrive. These have been rarer than hen's teeth in Canada.

I just picked this up this afternoon. It's a Sar K2 .45, 14+1 capacity, double/single action. The rear sight adjusts for elevation and windage.

I posted my Sig P226 9mm Tacops in an earlier post, but now I just added Crimson Trace Grips, a Streamlight TLR-3, and a flush fitting 18 round Mecgar magazine. I also just had SIG do their Action Enhancement Package to it. I found some Federal Premium HST 124 gr +P rounds for it at my local gun store. This is now my primary home defense weapon.

Eight-round magazines for a .45 are sexy, but allow me to suggest that John Browning got it right when he made the magazine a 7-round magazine.
The only thing more important than having an eighth round is having a second round, and a third and so on. The only malfunctions I have experienced in a .45 were changing magazines with full Wilson Combat 8-round magazines in the heat of USPSA competition. It was operator error, but...
Even with an 8-round magazine fully seated at your leisure, sometimes you get a malfunction. There is so much pressure on the bottom of the slide it slows down the cycling and can cause a malfunction. This can happen with other semi-autos also.
A Browning auto-loading rifle, BAR, is my regular hunting rifle. It has been my practice to chamber a round then top off the magazine. Malfunctions were common after the first shot until I stopped topping off the mag. Perhaps more diligent firearm maintenance would improve reliability, but cleaning, lubrication and maintenance is not my strong suit.
My suggestion is; do not top off magazines. Leave one cartridge out for improved reliability. It also gives you a parking place for that loose round when you have to unload your weapon.
While I'm on the subject of malfunctions, here is another tip. Do not use a previously chambered cartridge to top off a magazine after your weapon is charged. Here is what I mean.
Let's say you want to unload your pistol. You drop the magazine and clear the chamber. Let's say when you reload, you insert the magazine, charge the weapon, then drop the magazine and top off the magazine with the cartridge you had in the chamber the last time. This practice can create a problem.
Every time you slam a cartridge into the chamber, specially if you use aggressive hollow points, you may slightly deform the ogive of the bullet. Every time you unload and reload, cartridge number one and cartridge number two trade places and get battered. When you shoot, the deformed cartridge at the top of the magazine may jam between the feed ramp and hood of the barrel.
If you have to load and reload, here is the solution. Remove cartridge two from the magazine, top off the mag with cartridge one, the one that was in the chamber, and charge the weapon. Then insert virgin cartridge two on top of the magazine again. (It's a virgin by virtue of the fact it has never been chambered.) But I could be wrong. I often am.
