Lovely little star.

Have a "B" model in 380 auto. At 2/3 the size of a regular M1911, it fits my hands, perfectly.

Where'd I get my first gun?

Got in the mail! Pre-Gun acts. As I recall I was about 19, and the rifle was a '98 Mauser 8x57mm, later sporterized. Good shooter. I loaned it to my brother, and, unfortunately, it burned up when he...

Duracoating handguns

I think I'd have to agree with ibewiggin and go with Cerakote. I've had it applied to my Star SS and no problems so far. Looks great, too!

My first gun

I would guess you're not asking about BB guns... So. My first firearm was a Brno 8x57mm Mauser. Purchased via mail, pre-1966. A good shooter even in military dress. While I was in RVN my father had...
