    I now carry My Walther P-88.

    I have been carrying 1911's for quite a while but I got my P88 because I always wanted one and I wanted more bullets in the mag for carrying.
    Well I finally shoot the P88 as well as my 1911's so I am carrying it as my daily carry gun.
    It weighs alot less even with 6 more rounds in the magazine.For now it will be my carry gun but I always seem to go back to the 1911 for some reason.
    Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!

    Something missing DF - no links in your text and no attachments!

    No sweat if it doesn't work but - must be something you are over- looking.

    Oh dear!!! Well dude - I see no links in your post and again - no attachments.

    Don't give up tho - just say what you are trying - I can't fathom it right now. I am wondering too - are you seeing a pic? I can't believe you are and if so - am mystified

    Are your pics on your own hard drive - or hosted somewhere?

    OK well - assuming they are smaller than IIRC 200K - and smaller file size is better - when you go to message window to type reply - scroll down a bit to ''Manage Attachments" - 'browse' then to location of your pic on your hard drive and - click on 'upload' ........ once it shows done that's it - unless you want to do another.

    When you then submit the post - the attachment should show as such under your message. Unless software gone wierd today - this should work!!

    P88

    If you look close to the second pic it looks like rust on the frame.But it is little pieces of my holster from drawing the gun from it so many times this week.I have not cleaned it yet and have been doing a ton of drills with it this week.The holster is broke in now though.

    Ahhhh - success - great

    Draw practice is good!!

    Is that slide stop long enough? Looks a tad short. Good to see pics as it fills a gap for me - could not visualize that at all before. thx.

    What you are looking at is the takedown lever.The slide stop is a part of the decocker.The entire gun is ambi even the decocker and mag release.
