My moniker Webley Fosbery 38 was both the best and worst handgun I ever owned (and only handgun I ever owned)!

Best because it was my dads and nobody had one like it (Literally there is only one other known to exist in the world exactly like it), it was a blast to shoot and looked like something Dirty Harry would carry ,

Worst, it was a complete failure when it was produced in 1903, thats why so few were ever made. It gave up stopping power to the recoil reload, and any dirt in the action would cause a failure to feed. I was always afraid that shooting it would damage it, it wasnt a young piece.

In the end, I cant own a piece of steel that is worth so much and has no practical use, just sitting in my safe, it had to go!

I'm glad you didn't blow one of your fingers off with it.

So far, it's been the Sig P232. Well made, but took a lot of rounds to get the gun broke in properly. It also took a bit of time to figure out which ammo to use with it. The best loads for this gun are the highest velocity loads I can find. I'm getting ready to get a Ruger LCP.

Yeah, me too. It went to a tinkerer for $65 bucks who said he was going to carve new grips for it...
