Some L Frame..
And with it's little brother after I got it worked on to my taste...
Andy those are beautiful. While I don't carry my revolvers much I'm still a revolver guy at heart. Until about 3 or 4 years ago all I owned for handguns was a couple of 357 revolvers.
Thanks mate, a mate of mine's older brother owned the 3 or 4th 586 ever imported into Aus back in the 80s. I fell in love with the L frame then. Carried K Frames around for many years and would have NO qualms doing so again.
I'm surprised Hillary hasn't made a visit to Aussieland to practice her confiscation skills. What kind of licenses do you have to maintain to have those, or are they for "work"?
I thought you weren't allowed to have firearms in Australialand
Yes the propaganda machine tells us all that guns are banned in Aus, no such thing. They are all personally owned (not work related). For handguns, I am a member of a pistol club and attend a range regularly (around 8 times per year to maintain the basic licence), for my longarms it is varied, I am also a member of a shooting club (three range attendances a year) and I hunt (member of a club and that covers that). I also have a collectors licence via membership of a club. Firearms held on a collectors licence may only be used at a range on specific approved dates, but most all do not regularly shoot the firearms held on these licences alone, those which I could hold as such are across all my licence classes so if I want to hun hogs with my '03 Springfield I can.
Andy, how is the queen's view of "sporting" rifles? Do you have the right to own anything you want, either outright, or via a process like our tax stamp/extortion system?
In general (there are exceptions to everything) semi rifles and shotguns and pump shotguns are no-nos. All other categories are no great issue to own, $30 fee to transfer title to the individual. There are "cooling off" periods (28days) for the first firearm of a class eg for a first handgun (H Class) but no period after the first in in possession.

My brand new Benelli Nova the day I brought it home about 3 weeks ago.
Here's some of my guns
Currently, this is my only one: Ruger LC9s. (I've been quasi-nomadic for professional reasons for years; lived in 30 places in the last six years; no option for carrying a lot of stuff around.)
Finest pistol I've ever owned. Picked it up 2nd hand for a steal. When I got it, it had some defects: bad recoil spring and a defective magazine that made it pop out randomly. Ruger fixed both free. Love it. Fits my hand like a glove. Rides at 4 o'clock everyday.
Sold my Marlin 336A in .3030 recently to the stepson of a friend. That was hard, but I was ready to move on. I'll replace it soon as possible with a Ruger American Ranch Rifle in .223/5.56 NATO.
I've heard a lot of good things about that little pistol!
^ Jeff Quinn likes it.
Quinn is my favorite online review guy! He's a lefthand shooter who seems to have similar preferences to myself. I've never found myself disagreeing with his opinion on anything I've tried/bought that he reviewed.
^ Ditto that. Authentic southern redneck.
I was born down there, even if I now live up here where it's cooler.
I envy you getting to live in a cooler place! Farthest I've gotten north was Arkansas for a few years, at least I got to witness all four seasons for a bit. I love where I'm from/live but the humidity's a killer.
It took me hours to find this video review.
This one is what sold me on the LC9s.
