I got my Tokarev today, and a used Kimber 1911
Well, over the last week or so, I blew a lot of money on firearms and shooting accessories, because things are getting so hard to find now. But I'm very happy because I feel like I'm building up a real quality collection.
I picked up my Tokarev from the dealership today, and there happened to be a used Kimber 1911 which appeared to be in great condition. In the future, when I can finally get .45 ACP again, that Kimber would be a great competition piece, and I figured it was a steal at between $700 and $800. I also bought 6 magazines for the Kimber, a belt, and a holster. I need some mag pouches for the belt.
I'm still waiting for 900 rounds of 7.62x25 ammo and a bunch of magazines for the Tokarev to arrive at the gun shop. Today I've been working on drawing the Tokarev, working the safety with my thumb, and getting the sights aligned nicely, since that is what I'd have to do for many types of shooting competitions.
I plan to field strip and clean/oil the Tokarev before firing it, since it's military surplus after all, and seeing as I'm still waiting on my ammo. There are some great step by step intstructions on this available on the internet.
Here are some pictures I've taken for you all:
