    Look what followed me home (No more plastic guns for me)

    Hi gang,

    This neat Browning BDA .380 followed me home today. What a work of art. Can't wait to get it out to the range and play my "No plastic guns for me" role. [Actually, one of my every day carry guns is a P-32 KelTec-Go figure.]

    This gun should probably never see a holster since there is not a mark on it. It was made in 1986 and must have spent most of it's live in a gun safe.

    Thought I would share this with you.

    Nice pistol. Go out and shoot it that's what it was made for. After the first mark on it, it will get easier.

    Could I be so rude as to ask what you paid for it? I've got a line on an 81 with 1 mag and the box and papers with very little if any wear, for $479 that I've been waffling on for two weeks now.

    $400 and I can't belive it after checking the prices on the web.

    This is truley a keeper.

    Thanks for all the replies gang. I may try and post better photos on this pistol. Your replies make me feel good about the purchase.I am going to try and find a couple of extra 13 round magazines for it.

    You guys (and gals/my daughter is a 25 year Trooper in Michigan so I have to be careful here) are really great.

    PS: My daughter was a firearms instructor fo 9 years until she made Lieutenant. She out shot me so I had to retire.

    I agree, awesome find and a great shooting pistol... Congrats.

    I had the Beretta Cheetah years ago, very similar in most respects and it was an awesome handling pistol.
