I am sure most of us have thought, "that looks good, I will try it."

When CT changed the laws banning threaded barrels on pistols. I had a 228,(2) 226's, and a 220. I had a p226 conversion and P220 conversion. The state could not tell me how many if any guns I would have had to register. 2 guns, 5 guns, 6 guns. I thought this is dumb. SO, I had a good friend put this little gem together in protest. It is threaded 1/2x28. It is also 1/2x28 threaded for a flash hider or can. My old AAC pilot fit right under. I am hoping my new mask does also.

As a plus, if anyone broke into your house and you stabbed them with this, you wouldn't have to worry about second shot placement. Also should help with the recoil.

Can't say that any of these seemed like a dumb idea at the time.

RMR on a Glock?
Thermal imager on a EBR?
Slo-Mo camera on a Desert Eagle?
Laser on an NAA 17mach2 revolver?
Guide rod laser in a 7.65mm P220?
Night scope for a Calico?

Got to have a little fun every now and then. Big Grin

"Classic" J-frame grips.

I know it hurts to shoot but I like how they look.




Chances are high; you won't like what I've got to say.

When lasers were first coming on the scene, I had one...about the size of a shoebox. I mounted it to a POS shotgun I had.

Anyone remember the Hartts recoil reducer? It was a hollow stainless steel recoil spring guide rod filled with mercury and ball bearings, the idea being that the inertia of the rod's contents would minimize felt recoil.

I had one. On a Beretta 92FS. A recoil reducer. On a Beretta 92FS 9mm.

I had one of those in a S&W 1066 10MM. Can't say if it really made a difference, but I thought it was cool at the time Cool

I had one of those "Clip Grips" such that you don't need a holster, since there's this clip on the gun so you go IWB without a holster. I prefer covered trigger guards for safety, so wasn't for me. In fact, I was afraid of using the thing. I used it for one trip to Safeway and that's it.

Oh joy, there's something similar for a Glock...

I mounted a mossberg 500 under an AR barrel in the early 90s. I attached it using hose clamps.

I put a set of adjustable Millet target sights on a 92F. They were a huge orange monstrosity that blended with the slide like the space shuttle on a 747. It looked good in my Uncle Mikes horizontal shoulder holster. That set up would print under hockey goalie pads.

I put one of those cheap clamp on barrel shroud heat shields on my Remington 870.
I was new to guns, and it looked cool at the time, but after a few rounds of slugs, it came loose, and I took it off and threw it in the parts bin.

On an AR, most quad-rails.

Hellfire trigger system on my 10/22.

This was in the mid 1990's.

Never worked as promised. Frown
