Pistol

Some guys cruise porn sites for fun. To me that's a lot like a starving man watching somebody cook and eat a perfectly marinated ribeye steak in front of them. Women read romance novels and bought Fifty Shades of Grey in record numbers to lend substance to their kinks -- apparently.

Looking at handguns leaves you with a more achievable fantasy. (LINK

To me, one who is not a particularly huge fan of Ruger handguns, there is a world of difference between an out-of-the-box Ruger and one that has been spruced up by Gemini Customs.

These are all Ruger SRH Alaskan Guide Guns in .454 Casull.

This is my favorite of the Gemini Custom SRH Alaskan handguns pictured here primarily because of the V-8 porting. The porting helps control the muzzle climb from a .454 round fired from a short barreled handgun. I would have done something else with the hammer - so it's not precisely how I would have ordered the modification, but, it's very close to perfect for this particular handgun.

  1. Very handsome equipment, LL. Eye candy. I am a Ruger fan myself, having owned a Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum, 8" barrel. Right out of the box, that piece was a real looker as well. Not as nice as these babies, but still nice.

    1. There is considerable recoil from a large caliber round in a small frame. The V-8 porting compensates for that while giving you the punch that you want.

  2. I love those big cal revolvers. I want a Governor, shoots .45 ACP, .45 Colt, and 410. I really want it for the 410. To me, its like a concealable sawed off shotgun. Perfect for home or vehicle defense. You have the 410 loaded up, and if that doesn't work, it revolves to .45...

    1. The Governor is illegal in California, where they categorize it as a "sawed-off shotgun".

      I personally love that handgun but alas, I live in the People's Republik of Kalifornia.

    2. If you fill out the forms, request permission from the Sheriff, and pay the fees, you can get one here. You just can't carry it concealed. I would leave it in the house though. HOWEVER, I refuse to buy here. And other states won't sell pistols to residents from here...

    3. The curse of NJ residency is akin to the curse of CA residency.

  3. Works of art. Years ago I bought a SP 101 used that Gemini had fixed up. Shoots like a dream, and looks as good as a freckled faced lady.

    1. That's absurdly high praise for Gemini.

  4. Pretty guns and that porting 'should' make it manageable... Should... :-)

    1. I've fired .44 Magnums that are ported in that way and they are quite manageable. From a porn perspective, more manageable than a woman...

    2. Predicting what will set a woman off is far more chancy than a firearm.

    1. All the troopers in the DLC need one to be issued with these handguns.

    2. If the Dallas Light Cavalry (Irregular) was issuing these, you know that Pretty Jenny and Brighid would sign up...

    3. Yes. I vote for the one in the first picture. She's a looker.

    4. Pretty Jenny, I'm surprised that you don't DEMAND that we cover the handguns appropriately (with a holster of some sort). Naturally, my boldness in displaying NAKED handguns as part of handgun porn attracts people far more than a clothed pistol does.

    5. I admit all the gawking at the naked beauty made me feel a little embarrassed and insecure. But then I shifted my thinking and decided that due to the lighting, backdrop, and careful staging, these pics were more "art" than porn. So I'm good with it.

    6. hmmm, ol wood, ol hide and a ported pistola.

    7. Brig, I find it --- somehow --- liberating.

      I knew that Pretty Jenny (she who refused to model her polka dot bikini to the boorish, leering internet) would be somewhat taken back by the blatant display of naked firearms.

  6. I dunno, all I can think of is catching a half-dozen Nolan Ryan fastballs bare handed.
