Default Gun comes back home

I purchased a Tarus PT99 and gave it to my older brother 15 years ago. He and his wife have moved to a retirement village where they do not allow guns. So I made arrangements for it to be shipped back to me. It arrived Yesterday.
Still in beautiful condition. I cleaned it and checked it out. I had forgotten it was a double action semi auto. Have not decided what to do with it, but nice to have it back home.
Anyone else have one?

Very nice! I had one just like it but I had to sell it to make rent several years ago.

I also want to ad, The PT99 is the easiest gun I have to breakdown and clean. Even easier and fast than my Glocks.

Nice to get it back but I think it's a shame your brother couldn't find a more civilized place to live.

That was my first thought too.
