    What the heck is wrong with the Luger that you are so afraid to post a picture of it also.... :)

    Just talking about it with no photos is killing the inside 12 year old indy1919a4... Well for that fact its not helping the older one either...

    I've been meaning to get pix of both guns together but haven't done it yet. The P-38 pix are already posted and the Luger pix have been here on the computer for years. Here's a few of the many : Luger -1.JPG Luger -2.JPG Luger -3.JPG Luger - 4.JPG Ain't the first time these have been on THR.

    l picked this up in Huston, at Collector’s Firearms, back in August. A Smith and Wesson .22/.32 hand ejector, heavy frame target. It was made in 1940, so it would not be considered a Bekeart. It wasn’t priced like a Bekeart. It is a 85%- maybe 90% gun. Just a bit of blue loss on the barrel. It is all original. This is one I have been wanting to add to my collection for sometime. With CCI standard volicity, it shoots like a dream. I love the way the grips feel in my hand. I like the older stuff best. Guns like this were made in a time where they was a lot of hand fitting and finishing. The people making them took pride in their work and people that owned them took pride in owning them. I am an old man now and I have never been able to warm up to the Glocks and such. I own a couple. To me they kinda fall in the same category as a good hammer. They are just a tool. Most firearms made today are that way. The level of craftsmanship is not even close. Glocks and such are good firearms and they work well. If I carried daily, a Glock would be my choice. It just makes sense, but to collect, I don’t see them increasing in value. If you want to own a firearm, that will thrill your soul, look at some of the older Smiths or Colts. Some like this one or the second and third series Woodsmans are not priced out of the range of most. These older firearms were made like firearms will never be made again, short of a custom. Prices for older firearms are increasing every year and in time the supply of nice collector grades are going to dry up. I have seen firearms, I bought years ago, sell now four to five times more than what I paid. You will not be disappointed with a firearm that was made from the 70s back. If you find one, you will always be on the lookout for more. They will hook you.

    Actually, I have had this one a number of years. It goes camping mostly. And to the range - I love to shoot this pistol above all others. :):)

    Today I picked up a Uberti repro of Remington's model 1875 in .45 Colt. Uberti calls it the "Outlaw." Used, factory refurbished and in very very good condition, it's nickel plated with great wood grips.
    Despite it being very similar to (it was a competitor to) the Colt S. A. A. of 1873 the grip feels very different.
    It has a 7.5 inch barrel. The store had a 1875 with a 5.5 inch barrel, color case hardened/blued, which I might have been interested in had it been in better condition.

    I might someday pick up a blued one with the shorter barrel. I don't regret purchasing the nickeled version at all. Back in the day many liked nickel as it was reportedly easier to clean than blued or color case hardened guns.

    Probably a few since my last visit to this thread, but my most-recent was a week ago, a nice Model 67-1 Smith and Wesson .38 revolver, to replace the one I was issued the first day on the job back in 1987. Judging by slightly-uneven wear between the two wooden stocks, this gun did uniform sidearm duty, too, once upon a time (the right stock is slightly more worn, and has some minute scratches consistent with a vehicle seat belt receptacle.)
