    Hit the range today with my friend. My friend brought his grandfather's WWII era Walther P38. This is the last of nine his grandfather brought back, unfortunately he sold the rest.

    It was pretty cool shooting a 70 year old gun carried by a German Officer during WWII. Not the straightest shooter (could be me or the gun). The trigger is a little heavy but crisp. In all, it was a real pleasure.

    Very cool! Did it have much of a kick?

    It was pretty mellow. Everything about it was smooth. No sharp recoil or torque: I think because its such a heavy firearm for a 9mm.

    I don't know for certain about the P38's, but the P1's shoot more accurately with 124gr. ammunition.
