I was out and about and walked into a couple of local gun shops and found a Browning that I had to take home. Specifically a Baby Browning. The serial number works out to have her made in 1962, by FN in Belgium. She is a pre gun control act import. Looks to be in great condition inside and out from what I can see.

I have not had a chance to shoot her yet. I might get a chance next week, I'm not sure.

If she shoots well she will be a good little pocket gun... And yes, I will feel fine with a .25acp (or 6.35mm as she is marked) :D

Congrats on the gun.

Remember the old adage from the leejack archives; it's more about the Indian than it is about the arrow. ;)

Classic! Nice find! Little handguns are always interesting, especially if they are all steel and very well made. My Colt approves.



It would interesting to shoot them side by side. I don't think the Browning has a grip safety, and on this size/type of pistol, that may be a good thing. Again, congratulations!

Dang, I've wanted a Colt VP since I was a teen. What year is that one?
It's depressing; 1929. Walked into a shop in Albuquerque, and there it was, at an any-good-looking-Colt-is-worth-that price. And then I talked them down $50. The other customer who asked about it five minutes later was quite disappointed.

Old blued guns. There's nothing quite like them.
