Ding ding ding! Michael C just crossed the 19K milestone! . . .

 By: Dr No : June 10th, 2024-22:40
. . . join me in congratulating our AP moderator . . . . . . on the accomplishment. And yes, in real life he bears a canny resemblance to Clint. ...

Even I . . .

. . . didn't know that was coming. 🀠

My kind of performance πŸ˜‰

The Dollars Trilogy were literally the first live action movies my parents ever showed me as a kid, after years of exclusively watching cartoons. Despite never having been a cinephile, those films (and obviously the ones they were inspired by (Yojimbo)) l...

Will do!

True story: walked into the LA Omega boutique yesterday, . . .

 By: Dr No : June 14th, 2024-20:17
. . . found an AP. (It belonged to one of their clients. Nice of him to let me photograph it!) ...  

Well done

I should join you in 4936 years. Please wait up

Not too bad....

You might want to reconsider though if you even contemplate getting close to Vlad's number - that is only hypothetically achievable in Vlad years πŸ˜πŸ‘....


 By: sschew : June 10th, 2024-23:37
like I need an extra 6539 years on top of that great, just great

Another 19k, that will take some time!

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-13:36
Parmigiani yesterday, not one I have posted yet but I will soon enough.

Oh this is intriguing so not the MR?

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : June 11th, 2024-22:29

Yes Sir, not the MR

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-22:54
I'll get it up at some point, still getting acquainted!


 By: MichaelC : June 12th, 2024-21:04
Instead, the fabulous rubber strap from the Tonda GT...

oh cool! Looking forward to pictures

Congrats Michael!

Have a good one! πŸ₯‚

Thanks Sir.

Was it 18,999 posts or 19,000?

 By: mdg : June 10th, 2024-23:38
In all the commotion I kind of forgot : ) Congrats!

Such an epic reply requires some new photos.

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-13:58
A small sampling of hardware. Original Model 29 from 1959. The finish on this revolver is spectacular, and the balance of the gun with 6 1/2" barrel is perfect. For non-gun people, the feel is like a 39mm Jumbo on the wrist. All original, with B&P of ...  

Nice hardware : )

...the wood grips are beautiful but the black grips seem more functional. I have the boring (but incredibly durable) plastic grips on my HK...

Me too!

Nice Michael, I just recently

 By: Thomas_3 : June 11th, 2024-20:00
traded my 4" Model 29 from the mid 80's.

4" 44, lotta power right there

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-22:56
I am a 357 guy, tried-and-true. But I like to shoot 44 here and there to "feel the power". My limit for sure. I have shot S&W500, but do not own one.

wow. what an amazing 44

 By: Gelato Monster : June 12th, 2024-22:32
Show us more. Your 357 also please😍

Wow Michael!! You made my day with these pictures of your Dirty Harry style battery!! You share it with some stunning pictures which make drool me and any gun aficionado.

 By: Subexplorer : June 14th, 2024-14:55
Your 1959 M-29 is a true beauty. The finish of early M-27 and M-29 (polish and bluing) is really outstanding. I also own a good collection of M-29 mostly from early 1980Β΄s through 90's in barrel lenghts from 3, 4, 5, 6, 6-1/2 and 8 3/8" both blued, nickel... 

We should meet for sure! I would love to see your collection.

 By: MichaelC : June 14th, 2024-20:23
Sounds like you have all the metals covered! The 28-2 you spotted is indeed a Highway Patrolman model. Definitely one of my favorite guns. As you know, the finish is sort of blackened. It is a great shooter. I will make a separate 357 post one of these da... 

Thanks a lot for your kind words dear Michael!!

 By: Subexplorer : June 15th, 2024-13:40
The Model 28 is also a favorite of mine. It was my test gun for my .357 mag reloads. A great gun and a twin of the exceptional M27 except for the finish and other details of course. Look forward to your .357 M post!! Will try to get some pictures of my co...

I love Yellowstone.

 By: MichaelC : June 14th, 2024-20:24
We started 1883 but got sidetracked, and then it dropped from our streaming service. Still need to finish it!! Are you a fan?

Personally 1883 is the best

 By: Gelato Monster : June 14th, 2024-23:13
1923 & Yellowstone are awesome. If I may share some of my other favπŸ˜€ Magnificent 7 3-10 to yuma Unforgiven Shane True grit The dollar trilogy

Congratulations Michael ! I always enjoy your posts and opinions on all things AP. Without you this place just wouldn’t be the same. Best regards Captain

Very kind of you, Cappy.

Happy to be a part of this amazing Community.

Art, thank you. I hoped I could sneak my way to 20k but apparently not!

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-13:33
Appreciate you, and everyone here.

Let me know if you're down for the Stones show in LA . . .

 By: Dr No : June 11th, 2024-17:34
. . . on July 10th. A VIP ticket just became available. Dinner at The Rainbow afterwards, of course.

I can smell the 20k just around the corner.

 By: Bill : June 11th, 2024-14:28
Thank you for all these years of pure passion for this hobby and a wonderful friend of the community. Honored to be in your company. Thank you Bill

Thank you, Bill. What you have done here for all of us...

After a few blinks?

For sure!

++1!! (nt)

 By: Ronald Held : June 12th, 2024-16:09

I wonder how many have been written with that watch on.

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-23:00
Could be a topic for another thread. Maybe Nico's MR has the all time site record?!?

Hmm! Great question!

 By: patrick_y : June 12th, 2024-03:52
When I'm writing my articles, I'm usually not wearing a watch! As I don't usually wear a watch when I type on the keyboard at home.

Go, go!

 By: amanico : June 12th, 2024-21:21

Thanks Tony. Always fun to share.

 By: MichaelC : June 11th, 2024-23:03
PS sorry to ready your Minute Rattrapante went back. I'll be curious as to the issue, I guess with the reset function based on an older post. I have every confidence Parmigiani will handle it efficiently and correctly!

Congrats, it’s great to have you here

 By: Derreck : June 11th, 2024-20:01
Always enjoy the posts and get some new ideas. To many more!

To many more!

I will always fondly recall the Rolex project we collaborated on

Big congrats dear Michael for your 19 K Milestone!! (With a bit of delay as I somehow didnΒ΄t see this thread before) I raise my glass to salute you and wishing many more K post from you.

Always a pleasure to talk watches and guns with you as we share both interests as you know. I send you my best cordial regards, Abel

We sure have lots in common, Abel!

 By: MichaelC : June 14th, 2024-20:28
I suspect beyond guns and watches, we would discover others too. Your kind words mean much to me, thanks my Friend!

I’m sure we could have a very interesting chat and will discover other …
