Default Not exactly an 'impulse' buy, but I didn't know I was going to buy them.

I collect .32 ACP pistols of the Art Deco period. I found these two at a gun show, they fit into my program and so I bought them.

They are a Savage 1917 and a (French) MAB modele D pistol. I have a review of the MAB on my blog already and I'm working on the Savage. This is my idea of living history.

Inoperable you can see it. I scored a Browning Buckmark a nice one, already have a challenger. It asked me to take it home asked its keeper, talked him down and voila another Browning. I'm as happy as a pig in slop.like everything Browning. Now I'm trying to trade a high end canon lens for a Hi- Power. In fact I changed my avatar to a Hi - power

It is a fun collection. Typically the pistols aren't too expensive, they have a lot of history, and they are a serious shooting lesson to shoot.

I find all these things I ignored in my invulnerably ignorant youth are now becoming absolutely fascinating.

WE NOW END THIS THREAD DRIFT AND RETURN TO THE PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED TOPIC.

Default Okay, today, this is my latest impulse purchase

Looks like a still from an old advertisement, but I don't know what.

It fits in with my manly-man decor, I think. And yes, I did buy it at a gun show. The gentleman had some other indigenous art, but this one caught my eye.

While not my newest impulse buy this one of one of my favorites. It's a S&W Mod. 25-2 that I believe took a trip through the Jovino shop in NYC. It does not have the Effdector roll mark but I was told that they didn't do that to earlier models. It's barrel was cut form 6" to 3" and has a match trigger and hammer. The Pachmar grips where also a staple of these guns. The double action on this revolver is simply the best I have ever felt on any handgun I have ever held. It shoots amazingly well. I actually comer across it while hanging out in a restaurant one evening. I frequented the place and many of the guys traded in knives and guns. Not really looking for any handgun at the time but I do like to keep my eyes open and this one literally fell in my lap. As soon as I picked it up I had to have it. I gave the man a GP100 and a pretty mangy looking SW380 that had been living in my truck and got this revolver and a few bucks. I can't see ever getting rid of it. I've been offered a pretty good pit for it form other collectors that have seen it 1st hand. Even with the short bbl shooting 45ACP from an N frame revolver is about like shooting a 22 pistol. Next to no recoil. I have 9mms that kick more.
Enough talk..Here she is....

My Smith & Wesson M & P 15-22 was an impulse buy, but I love it! It's the handgun version so it's compact and fun to shoot.
