    The older ones are some of my favs. My 1941 M1 is a super shooter, so is my Winchester 92A .22 that I inherited from my grandpa.
    I’m into Cowboy Action shooting, as is my 11 almost 12 year old daughter, so we do a lot of period correct revolvers, lever actions and double barreled shotguns.

    I've only had a 10mm pistol for a couple of years now but sure do like the cartridge.

    I agree. Very versatile. You can load it extremely hot and load it down to a comfortable plinking level.

    You have to buy the required National Firearms Act tax stamp ($200) and pass the usual background check, but it is possible to buy them.

    I even have a place in my heart for ratty .25 automatics. I'd have to get the MAB (Model B?) running and shoot it.

    It's not even as ugly as the this Helfricht Model 3, produced between 1920 and 1929.

    Hey! Isn't that where you're suppose to stow 'em?!!!

    In the early part of the 20th century corrosive priming compounds were unkind, particularly to handguns with nickel finishes. Non-corrosive primers were not introduced in the U. S. until 1927. Non-corrosive priming was introduced in Germany a bit earlier. Before that it was a chore to keep both bores and external finished surfaces tidy. Any neglect in cleaning and wiping down a firearm after shooting use yielded dismal effects. If the firearm wasn't inspected regularly in days or weeks following use and cleaning it sometimes still suffered from the results of the insidious corrosive effects of both priming compounds and some propellant powders.

    While .25 ACP ammunition was never supplied charged with black powder, the .38 Special factory ammunition could be loaded with either black powder or smokeless powders from its introduction in 1899 until about 1910. Black powder cartridges also had a corrosive effect on firearms, both internally and externally. The Smith & Wesson K-Frame Hand Ejector Military & Police .38 Special revolver above dates to 1904. Actually, the bore and lock work is first rate on the shabby old thing, only the original nickel finish is degraded badly.

    Mouse guns
    Seecamp
    When I was a little guy around seven years old my grandfather would let shoot 25 autos. A 25 with a box of ammo and a tin can at thirty feet was big time fun for me. After I was able to handle 25's it was on to 32's and 38's then 45's. Actually my grandfather is the one that introduced me to firearms.

    Nice Seecamp. I always liked the TPH. I don't have a picture of that, but here is my PPK/L. (.32). PPK.JPG

    No settling there. I have some friends who went for the Sig over the Walther. Nice gun.

    Kind of like Chevy vs. Ford. Omega vs. Rolex. All personal taste!

    Maybe a TV antenna installer dropped it.



    Or maybe a mugger on the run just tossed it.

    PS: If a mugger shot me with that thing I'd be offended, and maybe a bit angry.

    It's a WWII pistol.
    It has some history and it was hidden inside a roof.

    PS:If someone would shot you with that you would have no time to be offended or angry
