Here it is 3:00PM on the east coast USA and no one has done a wrist check yet. I happen to have a brand X on right now. Is that the case with all the rest?

If not, display your weekend cheese!:thumbup:

The shame, the shame!

@ Rusty
I got to thinking, started this thread asking for cheese and did not bring any to the table. Switched up while ago to my very first slice. :biggrin:

I'll wear this tomorrow while decorating the tree.


Foggy, that is such an elegant and beautiful Invicta. The only thing that kept me from buying it originally was that it had a mineral crystal. Is this correct? Or does it have a sapphire? Maybe it was the original sellers misprint on their site.:blink:

I wore my Invicta for five days straight. Swapped to a Grovana Diver and then went even lighter - my fullsize Tudor Sub

@timebender...nice pieces. Especially the S&W, I didn't think about it when I started the thread about collecting but I also used to collect guns. One of me favs was my Walther PPK.

Walther by S&W

@timebender...nice pieces. Especially the S&W, I didn't think about it when I started the thread about collecting but I also used to collect guns. One of me favs was my Walther PPK.
You may have noticed that the S&W in the picture is in fact a Walther PPK/S. S&W is licensed in the states to make the pistol for Walther. You may still buy the German made version here at a higher price. About 20 years ago Walther licensed Interarms to make the pistol here in the states and in a side by side comparison by the NRA they were exact in performance and again the difference in made in Germany or USA was price. I have to conclude that S&W would at least equal Interarms and because of the size of the company CS should be better.

Back when Interarms was making them Walther made inspections periodically to insure the weapon was at their standards as it bore their name. I am much more favor with the .45 ACP round (added photo) but because the Walther has so much history and is probably the most operative reliable .380 out there, I own this one. For the purist that wants the German model, expect to pay a couple hundred bucks more.

Mine was the German version, it was a fun piece to shoot. I also had a Beretta 9MM which was a blast (no pun intended). My favorite rifle was my AR15. The gun restrictions in Canada got to the point where it was more work than it was worth to own a gun. So I sole off my collection.

Wow, I had no idea there was anyone else here who shared my love of firearms, especially handguns. I've been collecting for about 35 years and have managed to accumulate ~60 or so (3 fullsize safes full).

timebender -
Is that a P-10? I have had a P-13 for about 10 years.

We need a FIREARM TALK subforum. :D

Love your aussie Lightman... I'm torn between the all black or the black w/white MOP dial.
