This 6.5 Carbine and Nambu Pistol were Pre War?
You suck!!!

Now excuse me, while I go pout....

The "Papa Nambu" as you know has gone out of sight price wise. I have seen these go from $20 bucks to way over $1,000. I passed piles of these pistols in the past at gun shows looking for other firearms. Damn if I could only go back and do life over.
