A Light Shining In Darkness by Hehewuti A Light Shining In Darkness by Hehewuti
Yes I totally ripped the title from the Fallout: New Vegas weapon because this is a .45 auto pistol, and IT COMMANDS RESPECT. This is my other favorite shot that I want to use as an ID, but I can't decide between the two D: I NEED HALP.

But damn, this gun. If I ever get a handgun, trust and believe it'll be a .45. HARD ASS kickback, I'm glad my dad warned me about it XD The gun woulda probably jumped out of my hand if I wasn't prepared for it. We also wore ear protection, I dunno how loud it was without it (I only took it off for the picture), but I felt it pulse through my chest. It was intense, dude. I didn't aim at anything in particular when I fired this, just at a giant strip of plywood some 30 yards away. I. fucking. LOVE. this gun. I want one.

I so wish this picture was totally in focus, but it's not off by too terribly much, so I can deal XD

Well my dear, as for that HARD ASS kickback... I concur... however you've never lived till you've fired a 1921 Tommy (cal.45) with a drum mag on full auto. Hurts and is Epic. Much like when you get a brain freeze... you have to say it hurts, and laugh at the same time... if you get a chance to fire one DO IT! [link]

Awesome! :D

I feel a bit ashamed to call myself a "gun guy" when I've yet to actually fire a 1911...:crying: I'm trying to get around to it! I hear pretty favorable reviews on Rock Island guns, they're in the $400 range. That's probably what I'll go with, unless I come into some money soon (yeah right)...

Hahaha, I can hardly call myself a 'gun-anything'...All I know about guns I either learned from my dad or from the Fallout: New Vegas (which taught me a fair amount about different ammo types, funnily enough).

I LOVE firing them, I think they're a lot of fun, but I don't think I would ever actually own one. Unless maybe I had some acreage out in the country somewhere, where I could have target practice without the risk of hurting anyone/thing.

Forgot to mention I'm a huge Fallout fan too, and they do have a huge array of guns and ammo in FONV. And it's awesome enough to make me overlook how odd it is that there are so many other weapons available there as opposed to in FO3.

And even if you're in a city or something, there are (hopefully) always ranges you can go to. I'm lucky to be in a pretty secluded area where I can shoot - if I can be bothered to do so. Between the cost of ammo, and having other things to do, I'm about to get rusty...:/

Then again, I did just read in the latest American Handgunner magazine, the value of doing "dry fire" practice to stay sharp in between actual shooting practice. Just follow, VERY carefully, all safety rules, natch!

Mmm, I don't think it's really odd that there are more in NV than 3. After all, most games add increasingly more content the further along they go.

There are ranges, but I really don't like the idea of having a gun in the house. If I could maybe buy one and just keep it locked up at the range, that'd be something else XD I can't even place why I'm so uncomfortable with it, I just am.

What's dry-fire shooting?

:iconlonelyimmortal:
LonelyImmortal Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
Yeah, but to nitpick it's not like the Fallout world has been able to develop much in the way of new tech of any sort. Then again, the Mojave didn't get nuked NEAR as bad as DC, so....

Hm, fair enough. Not sure if a range would let you do that, though in some of those other so-called "civilized" countries that's the only way one CAN own a gun (by keeping it locked up at the range/club/etc).

And dry-fire is practicing without live ammo. They make practice rounds for it (I just got some .38 snap-caps for my Ruger LCR made by the A-Zoom company), though some would say you don't even need them. Better safe than sorry. Not every gun can tolerate this though, I'm pretty sure it's a BIG no-no to do it with any .22 for instance.

Advantages include familiarizing yourself with trigger pull and sight alignment. And if you have defensive uses in mind, getting in vital practice in areas that many ranges frown on - like drawing the gun, moving to cover, etc.

Yeah, I've had this conversation a lot lately so I apologize if I am repeating myself XD But NV just felt like a glorified expansion pack...fun, but no where near the level of F3.

Interesting...that definitely gives me a lot to think about XD Even if I did want a gun, there's no way I could afford one for a long time anyway XD So not much use worrying about it too much for now. But thanks for all the great info!

Springfield Armory has some decent GI-style 1911s for around $600.00 if I remember correctly; Colt around $800.00. I, myself, have a High-Standard GI 1911 and it's pretty nice. Definitely wear ear-pro. whenever you fire it, though: firing a couple magazines through mine without protection gave me some slight tinnitus in my left ear. 1911s are pretty loud handguns, but are a joy to shoot when ear protection comes into play.

Key firearm safety rule: Treat every firearm as if it they are loaded, which means keeping your finger off the trigger. Even if it wasn't directly touching the trigger, you should just rest it on the side of the gun like this: [link]

I don't mean to be a firearm safety nazi, but accidents happen sometimes, you know?

Hehe, no worries, my dad (who took the pictures) told me the exact same things =) He was also not standing directly in front...he stood far off to the side, and stretched out his arm with the phone to take the picture. Even then you can still see the angle is too the side...if, by some act of God I did fire an actual bullet, it wouldn't have hit anything (except the trees) and his phone would have only been damaged from the fall =)

If you get a .45, get a 1911 pistol. 101 years and still one of the best handguns out there.

I've shot a lot of guns, and I'd have to say if I were picking favorites it'd have to be either a 1911 or a .357 Magnum. That being said, a beautiful girl holding a beautiful gun...faved c:

Not a fan of fixed sights on a 1911 but they are an amazing platform, especially for concealed carry. Love .45 acp and long colt.
