Yeah well it's not for everyone but it's my new baby. After trying to replace an aging handgun I field tested a couple different models and found this baby to be one of the better ones.

Anyways... like I said, it's not for everyone.

Isn't it a cutie?? I'm sure she'll come in handy sometime, somewhere.

The calibers for it are 9x19mm Luger/Parabellum; .40SW; .45ACP

If you have Firearms GoCubs, definately take some shots, I'd love to see what you have.

Anyways, I finished my security assignment in Pakistan and now I'm getting ready to go home for hopefully a few weeks. Which is great because I hate this country.

I'll see what my employer has in store for me when I get home. Usually after an assignment you get time off, but this world is a crazy place and time off is not guaranteed.

I also have a few babies. My favorite being my Springfield v10 ultracompact. 45ACP ofcourse. My newest is a Tarus PT140 Millenium.

Cant say that I'm familiar with the Viper though. Who makes it?

The Viper JAWS was a joint development project between American Wildey Guns company and the Jordan King Abdullah Design and Development Bureau (KADDB).

A actual gun was designed by Wildey Moore but is produced in the country of Jordan.

Ahh, very cool. So once you get home and show all your friends, you have a one of a kind/unique gun. No one else will have one.

This gun was actually recommended to me by a friend of mine in Texas. I was a little hesistant because there were a couple of other models that I was considering. But, I like the feel of the Viper. Plus the name is cool. :-)

The viper is my sidearm, my primary is an AK-74M.

You have pictures of your babies, Overkill??? I'll see if I have a picture of my 74M to show you. It's a fantastic assault rifle.

Here's a basic shot of the AK74M. I thought I had some better pictures of her but they must be at home. Anyways, I've used this rifle for just over 7 years now. Russian troops are issued this rifle, I believe.

The rifle as you can see doesn't have a bayonette attached or a launcher or anything like that. I never use a bayonette and a launcher I use only sometimes.

If you ever get a chance try firing one. You'll love it.

The AK74M uses 5.56mmrounds?

The South African troops are issued with the R4, which is based on the Israeli Galil, which in turn is basically an AK47 that fires 5.56mm rounds. Thus I would think that the R4 and the AK74M are very similar. They look somewhat different, but appear to function very much in the same way.

I joined the army reserves just to fire the R4 :-)

Ok, let me try this again. I tried posting the other day but webshots wasnt letting me into my album... After I took these shots, I said to myself 'damn, I should have atleast tried to make the perspective atleast somewhat appealing'. But you get the idea...

Ruger 44mag and 45 colt



Colt King Cobra 357mag



Tarus Millenium PT140 and Springfield v10 UltraCompact 45acp
