    Totally agree. My older Detective Special has an odd set of marks on the grip that form a triangle. I'll probably never know why they are there, but I wouldn't trade this one for a "like new" '48 DS, no way.



    Of course, nothing can match military firearms in this regard. Think of what this 1937 Mosin was carried through...

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    Very nice older Revolvers! I have an old H&R .22LR "Muff" Revolver, inherited from my Grandfather on my Mother's side.
    My Grandfather rarely ever fired it and it is in excellent condition.


    H&R .22 LR Revolver

    Then there are some WWII antiques of mine that I have posted before.


    AC Code 1944 P-38 and Mauser S/42 Luger

    Then there is also my late Father's Custom Colt 1911, based on a 1911 originally made back in 1917
    Originally, he had it set up as a custom Bullseye Target Pistol. I set it up for IPSC/Carry.
    I also did minor repairs and replaced the Barrel as it did not fit the Slide.
    I need to re-do the Gold Fill on the engraving and take better Pictures of it.

    I also enjoy old, even obscure, guns. Here are a few of mine.

    #1 is an original Budischowsky .22LR pistol. This gun was produced by Edger Budischowsky in West Germany approx. 1969 in both .22LR and .25 acp. The entire gun is made from one piece of stainless steel. The gun was too expensive to produce and still make a profit and was eventually sold to the Norton Manufacturing Company in Mount Clemens, Mich. The grips are made from bone marrow taken from a camel's hip bone.

    #2 is a Whitney Wolverine .22LR pistol manufactured in 1956. The gun was only produced from 1956 through 1958. It is an interesting design in that there is only one screw in the gun. Each part is designed to hold in the part next to or under it. It was also the first gun manufactured out of a new material called aluminum in an investment casting in the firearms industry. The casting was done by Alcoa.

    #3 is a Wham-o single shot .22LR pistol. It was produced approx. 1954.

    #4 is a Ramline Syntech plastic .22LR pistol. It was manufactured for a very short time in 1994-1995.
