    Collectable guns are worth what someone will pay for it. Guns like this are not particularly
    prized for self-defense.Of course, more original bluing left means 'better condition' and means
    more money ...

    My two favorites are "Baton Rouge, Louisiana" and "Boca Raton, Florida". Literally translated
    they mean Red Stick and Mouse Mouth respectively. No. I have no idea.

    What you cannot see:All the Basque made (Spanish) pistols had some sketchy metallurgy. They
    were made pretty well - usually copies of decent European or American revolvers - but the metal

    Do you have a suspicion of which model it may be? Sauer and Sohn made at least two different
    pistols in 7.65mm (.32 ACP). I think - emphasis 'think' - the common one from the NAZI era was

    bullets from any number ...

    know the traditional 300blk subs were designed for a 9 in barrel. I kind of figured pistol
    length pistol p...

    to say the original .357 Magnum revolver and ammunition combination was ADVERTISED at 1500 fps

    using HP38 pow...

    Just for the record, Bill Jordan once spilled the beans that Skeeter Skelton and all his
