Guess there ARE advantages to living out in the sticks, Paul!

And I think I stayed in that same fleabag motel plus got drunk in the bar across the parking lot! Not much else to do in town back then and we were stuck there a few days on a truck weighing detail on US 60.

Hey we always pronounced it SAL-lom in the seventies but I guess it really is Sal-o-may like the belly dancer or Salome Jens?

It's still pronounced SAL om
As for getting drunk across the street Kinda tough right now.


It was completely gutted. The adobe walls are for the most part standing so it's being rebuilt.

Cheers:

Paul

Oh man what a shame! Our crew put down a lot of beers and burgers in that place. One guy said he had 32 beers in one day. Don't know if that's possible but he sure could put them down!

Hate to say it but this reminds me of Two Guns, AZ catching fire. Afterward they renamed it No Guns. True story!

My wife bought me a West German Police trade in P38 several years ago as a Christmas present, and it is in roughly the same shape as yours. It is a fun gun to shoot, and you don't have to feel guilty about damaging an heirloom if it gets scratched. I hope you enjoy your new guns.

I picked up two P-1s from AIM awhile back. Nice guns. Seem to handle any ammo I feed them. One is now my car gun and the other in my bug-out bag.

Nice to see a few guys have P1/P38s here, thanks for the pictures. Hey Paul, yours is the real deal! And the holster too. Nice!
