Hey Tropers, I've got some gun pr0n from our armory I felt I'd share, so here goes!
Here's◊ Some◊ Guns ◊
I'd give some extra information on each link but I had to email the pics to Tueffel so he could host them since things like imageshack are blocked for me. Pictured are some M14's, M1's, M79 Grenade Launchers, 249 SAW's, M16's, M4's, a box of M9's and a halfway disassembled M9.
We also have some 240B's(Basically an M60 with different internals) that are on the rack above the 249's.

Damn. Can we hang out when the Zombie Apocalypse goes down?
For the curious Fire Arms identification in pic order.
In order Top right M-16 Rifles, Bottom Right M-249 SAW (Light Machine Gun),
Center going right to left M-14 Designated Marksman Rifle or Accurized variant.
M-1 Garands, M-14 standard variant
Left most rack M-79 Grenade Launchers.
Close Up of first pic the rifle with the white wood with the M-249 saw weapons is a civilian model carbine style rifle.

Holy shit, it was a grenade launcher. I'm honestly surprised I ID'd that, I don't know jack shit about guns outside the Mosin Nagant, M1911A1 and P90.
Armories all seem to look the same ;) Reminds me of the air force base armory I spent some time in in the cadets back when I was sixteen or so.
Mostly correct Tueffel, the white furnitured rifle near the SAW's is someones civvie rifle that they were keeping there at the time. The Woodland camo rifle in the corner is an accurized M14 like Tueffel stated.
Well Morven that would make complete sense since it's an Air Force Armory. :P
Not pictured are the 240B's, and the M4/M9 racks that line the entire armory. But it's all the same guns so those are boring, that is the back area which is more reserved for specialty weapons and odds n ends. We also have 203 attachments laying around, but we don't carry them on patrol. We actually don't have any explosive 40mm grenades for the 79's or 203's, just tear gas and smoke.

I'd hit it. Are those M1 Garands?
Edit: Never mind, Tuefel answered my question.

I'll take apart my M9 and M4 and do a thread on the inner workings of said guns for anyone who's interested in a few days. Promise tons of pics.
And here are my replicas:
.*sigh* Stupid forum. To see the pictures, just delete the dash and space from the last block of numbers. I can't be arsed to upload them to the 'shack right now.

Im saving my cash a piece at time to get Glock 22. That would be a .40 cal Glock Pistol for the curious. Under 500$ hell yeah.
I Dislike Firearms >_> to easy to accidently hurt someone. I prefer Blades.
Lance: A gun is only as dangerous as the person holding it...same for knives.
Are we allowed to post pics of fictional guns?
'cause if so...Hellz yeah.◊
I was thinking of getting a war hammer and name it Mr. Biscuits for kicks. I was thinking of getting a .38 for carrying though. And I've met people who decided to go the Rambo route and make a knife out of a leaf spring. I also met a dude who carries a sai.
.40 cal is the best of both worlds in World Of Darkness - recoil that can be easily controlled by most starter characters and rerolling nines. Lex uses a SIG P229 and Nick has a S&W 4013 with faux ivory "Ace of Spades" grips. I'm not a fan of Glocks, though.
If I were to use one It'd be a heavy pistol of some kind.
Well the .38 was for carrying concealed (when I get that license). If I wanted something for kicks, I'd get a silver .454 Casull and a black fifty cal
The Sanzo and Vash and Jigen fangirl in me wants a revolver. But the practical-minded daddy's girl in me knows I'll fuck up everything I try related to firearms, and that if I ever do gain anything resembling proficiency it will have to be something with a scope because of my eyes.
Off a range, you're not going to hit anything with a handgun at more than twenty-five meters or so. Eyesight shouldn't matter too much at that kind of range.
Personally, I've got a nerdy lust for the Mateba autorevolver, although I'll probably go for something a bit more practical if I ever buy a gun. I'm really more of a sword guy, though.

Oh, it's not just that my nearsightedness is horrendous, it's also the fact that my eyes don't work together as well as they should; in fact either will only perform at top capacity when the other is closed.
I should really wear my glasses more often.
Well, to aim a gun you'd generally be closing one eye anyway.
@Norn: that Mateba gun looks nice, though it's probably more expensive and less practical than a magazine-loading automatic pistol anyway. I wouldn't mind owning a Webley-Fosbery Automatic Revolver, too, being a much earlier (1901) implementation of pretty much the same idea.

Oh. I didn't know that. I thought you were supposed to keep both open and not blink.
Proper shooting techniques include both eyes open or one partially closed. Completely closing one eye ruins your depth perception. Expert shooters also suggest a slight 2-5 degree inwards can to give the pistol sights a more natural sight to eye alignment :P you can hit a target with a pistol at 90 yds. I was better with pistols then rifles, go figure.
Ithink◊ this◊ would have to be my favourite gun.
I've never fired one or anything, I just like the look and the mechanics of it.
