    I'm afraid to ask what that cost you.

    It was completely free!
    It was a gift from my Great Grandmother, it was my Great Grandpa's.

    I shot one magazine out of it yesterday. I may shoot it more occasionally but I'm being very careful to keep it how he had it.

    Winchester,
    I am very familiar with the Model 41. They were an excellent pistol for 22 cal Silhouette Competition at the Club years ago.
    Very nice piece! And great that it is a valuable nostalgic keepsake from your Grandpa! They mean the most to me as I am sure your pistol does to you! They are priceless!
    The other thing is there is no problem with shooting the 41. It is a fine pistol and as long as you shoot good ammunition through it and take care of it as far as maintenance, cleaned properly and lubricated there is no reason for you to hesitate one bit to shoot it. Always keeping it in a gun rug after being lubed and kept in a dry place. I clean and properly lubricate all of my heirlooms every 6 months even if I do not shoot them. CONGRATULATIONS! On one fine pistol!

    Thanks for the tips!
    I think I will shoot it more! Ie found it to be incredibly accurate!
    I've heard tales about him hunting rabbits and squirrels with it and I'd like to try the same!
    Thanks for the response! :)

    nice pistol! i would shoot he snot out of it! guns are meant to be shot. taken care of properly, it will be able to be handed down to your grandchildren.

    so take it out and shoot it, and take proper care of it and it will outlast you and your grandchildren.
