Mauser ES350 for me. My dad bought it for me when I was 6 years old and paid $20 for it. It's classic.

To make the math easy ... assuming you have some brass ... LSWC bullets $100/M + primers $35/M + powder ~$5/M = about $140/M (or $0.14 per shot).

9mm costs about $220/M (or about $0.22/shot).

They sell a smaller one that I think is just right. It has plenty of room for a couple of pistols, holsters, a few hundred rounds of ammo, a timer, ear muffs, glasses, mag's, cleaning gear, etc....

This is probably where you will eventually end up anyway. Save the time and money -- take the plunge. You won't regret it.

It has the standard, synthetic collapsable stock. Sorry if I was unclear in the "as issued" reference. Maybe I should have said, "stock" configuration.

My two cents worth: stay clear of the S&W versions of the Walther PPK, PPK/S. Mine went back twice. Bad (and slow) service both times. Poor QC up front and after the sale. Got rid of it at a loss...

Trailboss

I tried it in as my light 45 Colt loads -- I believe it is designed for "cowboy" loads that then to be on the light side. I thought it worked OK but found it to be much more susceptible to static...

Usfa

Once you get your hands on a USFA SAA, nothing else (short of an old, original Colt) will suffice. Just do it.
