Tough choice. I like both. Can't ya just buy the mp 40?
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
Smiths are not junk I love mine but its all up to you do you love it? Your friend sounds like the kind of guy that whatever someone else is looking at its junk or the opposite is better. I'd ignore him and judge for yourself
My pistols, however, I always kept by me.
