Oh cool! I have an extra rusty barrel and an extra junk hammer still in the cigar box. Someday I'm gonna silver-solder a cut-down M16A1 flash hider on the cut-down barrel, and bob that hammer, and "Open Channel D!"

So what's the PP doing in there?

Family portrait. There's P5 in there too, I think it's called.

Yup. Here's a P5, notice the ejection port is on the left of the slide.

Hard question to answer. 1911's and M1 Carbines rate very high.

Now something I have never owned is a Luger, just could never really afford one. But I do go weak in the knees for the less common versions of the Luger, such as the Navy, Artillery, and of course the Luger Carbine

I happen to like the P-38. It's inferior to many of the allied pistols of it's era, but it's a unique design and a downright decent pistol. The grip is at a very right angle, similar to the Astra's, but I find it to point fairly well. Ergonomically the grip is excellent, and they tend to be pretty darned accurate.

I have the poor man's P-38, the P-1. It's in very fine shape and I really like it.

But like Kevin, the one pistol I would love to own but never will is a Luger.

Of course Kevin would start with a Navy Luger which I'll probably never have either and have only seen a couple in the flesh. Have a nice Arty and fortunately have never had an urge for a carbine. But Terry there are a zillion Lugers and a decent example can be found for under $1K. Mechanically they are all nearly the same and only when/where marking and condition can drive the price sky high.

Keven... don't forget the Broomhandle

I've had Broomhandles, they shoot very straight and they're very reliable. But they're not my cup of tea. Now a Broomhandle carbine, well you would have my attention with something like that.

Charlie, I've only seen a couple of Lugers for sale around here in the last 20 years. Granted, I haven't been actively seeking them out, either. But they were priced way beyond what I would or could pay for them.

Who knows? One just might fall into my chiubby little hands one day. Believe me, if one does, y'all will be the first to know.

Terry, try Gun Runner Web Page it is an honest auction site and they always seem to have a couple of Lugers. They can go stupid high but there are decent shooters there to. If you don't mind a refinish job they can be reasonable . The pictures are usually very good
