    Not artfully photographed, but a very good pistol.
    Former Czechoslovakian Police CZ 75.
    A very well used pistol from 1982, with a new 'race' hammer, an adjustable sight, and stock rubber grips.
    All steel construction makes it quite heavy, which in turn makes it a very pleasant gun to shoot.
    The ergonomics on it are great.
    It just fits the hand.

    The fancy hammer gives it a very smooth, crisp trigger, which is too light for non-range use.
    But boy, is it accurate.
    It's way better than I am.

    I wish the hammer had the round ring of the stock part.

    I shoot paper targets with it for fun. Bulls-eyes only.

    Here's my CZ-75 clone, an ITM AT84S. Seller had it listed as an AT84. Those had horrible problems with soft steel, etc. The AT84S is a Tanfoglio (Italy) reassembled in Switzerland. Shoots like a dream, best trigger next to my S&W 52-2, it outshoots me. Price including all the hicap mags, $300! This is my normal EDC when I go out...

    Seems like you might be able to water ski behind that thing with the energy from the shot. Hit it!

    err uhm,... on second thought, I guess you wouldn't want to be in that position; Boom!

    I first learned about them from a book I read many times growing up. It was written by Robert Ruark. Titled "The Old Man and the Boy". There was a follow-up, "The Old Man's Boy Grows Older". If you're into hunting and fishing you should check them out.

    (Oops! Had to correct the book title.)

    I'm on the hunt for either of these. Both repeater antiques and handloading required. I really love the old ones though, they require very deliberate actions to shoot them. I won't buy off gunbroker, for me it's in the hunt too. I'll find one in an out-of the way gunshop, at a show, or I won't find one at all. Both are black powder rifles.

    When cleaning out my father's home after he passed, I found this old gun and I'm not sure exactly what I've got. It appears to be a Mauser 1895 action but none of the stamping numbers match so I suspect it was put together with parts from several actions and rifles. Haven't done anything with it yet but I'll probably take it to a gunsmith to have them inspect it, determine the caliber and tell me if it is safe to shoot.

    You guys caused me to dig out this old plinker.
    It is a Sears Roebuck - J.C. Higgins 103.18 .22cal single fire
    Manufactured by Marlin, under Sears license.
    What I know of its history,...
    My grandfather gave it to my dad after WWII. So, later 40's
    My dad gave it to me around 1969 (I was 10, and now old enough for a gun, and the mens fishing trip).
    I last had it out over 35 years ago.
    It has surface rust on the barrel, and the front sight. There is a shiny ball at the front sight. Its rusted.
    The trigger guard has crazed paint.
    The butt plate is cracked and broken into three pieces, one missing since I first got it.
    The firing mechanism works as it should, but, needs a lube job, as things have gummed up a bit it seems. The firing pin spring is still likely louder than a .22 short.

    So, surface rust on the bluing and around the sights. Mechanisms seem functioning.
    My old plinker:

    Oh, it's our fault, is it? :D

    Nice little plinker there. It only needs to be cleaned and checked for proper operation to be fired.

    It looks like it was well on its way to sporterizing, Not uncommon, surplus rifles could be had for ~$15 mailed even into the 1960s. Lots of stories about them stacked into packing barrels at the local sporting goods & hardware stores of the era. And because they were cheap, many were turned into deer rifles. It should be 7x57 Mauser, a potent round. The lack of numbers matching although too bad is typical. If they were stripped en masse parts got mixed up when they were put back together. Without numbers matching and the stock cut value is more inline with a project or parts donor. Still cool though. If the cut stock is the only work done it's conceivable an uncut one could be found. That would do a lot for value.

    I'm thinking I may end up using the action to build a 7x57 in a different stock with a better barrel. I noted that the barrel throat is pretty pitted and eroded.

    How about whacky shot of the day boasting?

    you're gonna get it anyway,...

    OK,... super hero shot today!
    Ground Squirrels make a really high pitched chirping noise when they're distressed; seems Prairie Dogs do the same.
    We had one out back that was repeatedly firing them off every couple of seconds, for like 10 minutes. I could hear it from inside. So I went out on the patio, and had a seat behind my blind. The bleating continued, and, I was actually using my ears with my eyes close, binaurally following it as it ran around under our pool deck. It kept getting closer, going hard left, and then coming towards binaural center as close as it come to getting towards my right side.
    This bleeting kept up for another 10 minutes. My mind started wandering, and I started watching birds, and not paying attention. Suddenly, I looked up again, and, there was something on the pool fence (chain link), at the top of the fence. I wasn’t sure if it were a bird or not, as it appeared suddenly. So I scoped it, and, saw it breathe out as it bleeped again.
    This was at likely 60’+, and at the opposite end of the pool area. My shot, was below a piece of glass and copper art piece that Sarge loves, through a layer of chain link, and then beyond, to the top of the fence at the opposite end of the pool.
    I took aim, and, by pure luck, the squirrel was centered within the diamond-shape of the first layer of chain link; and just under Sarges glass piece. Pop goes the squirrel. Shot went through the chain link diamond, and, the squirrel kindly obliged by centering his back in that same diamond frame.
    I came in, and told Sarge of my shot, and she said you got the fence taunter? her eyes bulging…!
    She’s seen that fence climbing tactic a bunch of times, and it irritated her like a heckling. So, suddenly, hero status.



    OK,.. pic to go along with story,...
    Lowest level of pic location is the patio, where my squirrel blind is; looking up at pool deck. The glowing reddish glass art thing is on the pool fence. The squirrel was on top of fence, at opposite end of pool, located directly above the pool ladder handles. Killing glass art thing = instant death for me.

    Shot; above plants, below glowing art glass object thing, through diamond pattern of first fence layer, and at the fence top support pipe rail at opposite end of deck.
