    Sort of a Grail Gun!

    I've always kinda wanted a P38. From watching old WWII flicks as a kid, to seeing Napolean Solo fighting off T.H.R.U.S.H. with one, the P38 has held a certain fascination for me. Never found a good enough deal on one to 'pull the trigger', though.

    Well, this morning at the Lafayette, LA Gun Show, I found a deal I couldn't walk away from:

    It's an alloy frame in Excellent condition, 1968 production, and has an interesting pedigree. Seems that Walther (or Interarms?) took a bunch of P38's back in trade from the West German police, refurbished them, and put them up for sale. Came with box, holster, instruction manual, and two magazines:

    I was a little surprised, as I would have thought that a '68 model would be either a P1, or a P38/II. Anyway, I'm pumped, and looking forward to shooting it!

    [ETA] If anyone has any info regarding these W. German Police trade-ins, please share!

    Very Nice! I've always wanted one too. But like you said : price!

    I had one and it cost me $30.00 in 1964 and my Luger cost $35.00. Sure wish I had both of them today.

    a poor plan that is well executed will produce better results that a good plan that is poorly executed.

    As expected, the M1909 was shipped to the U.S. Army in the Philippines in 1909. I was pretty sure that was the case, but it was cool to have it confirmed.

    The M1917 letter was perhaps a little less "interesting", but it was nice to learn a little more about the ol' warhorse. Seems the gun shipped two days after the end of WWI, so it wouldn't have seen service then, but I've learned that M1917's were still in service through WWII, Korea, and even Vietnam, so who knows what action this ol' gun might have seen? Couldn't help but notice, too, that when the 1917 shipped, my Grandma would have been pregnant, awaiting the arrival of my Dad!
    Very cool, Jim!

    I picked up a S&W 43C today and just in time received in my mailbox some Tipton .22 snap caps that I had ordered. Needless to say I now have blisters on both of my index fingers after approximately 500 trigger pulls, 250 with each side. I would pull 25 times and then slowly stack the trigger through the first two clicks and hold while I aligned the XS white bead front sight on various objects in my garage. Following this exercise for working on smoothing the trigger pull, I compared it to my two S&W 442s, a 442 no dash and a 442-1. Both had significantly better trigger pulls than the 43C. Just for the heck of it, I got out an old S&W M18 and compared the double action pull to the 43C. I shouldn't have done that! Since I was feeling very masochistic tonight I proceeded to get out my S&W M66-1 that has had thousands of rounds fired through it (and it isn't my best revolver trigger pull, a S&W M10 that has been "smoothed" holds that position). I concluded that I need to pick up a trigger pull gauge to find out more precisely where these are breaking at.

    M&P 2.0 full size 9mm FDE

    Stopped by the LGS this evening. Gun is three months old, came with three mags but only one(small) back strap. I'll contact S&W this week for the rest of the back straps. I just can't figure out how someone looses all the spare parts when they have the case to leave them in.

    Even with the $9.00 cost of the back straps, I still saved 25% from MSRP.
