    Hi y'all, greetings from Houston!

    Hi, haven't been to a range in 35+ years, been thinking of retaking it up as a hobby. Total newby to pistols, the only experience I have was with old .22 cal rifles, will probably start off with a .22 cal pistol and work my way up to a 9mm. A while back I started to look if I could find a Lahti L-35 on the internet.....seems it's hard to find.....it's also a bit more expensive then I imagined. I'll settle for a more modern pistol, but if the time is right and I find the grail who knows! Looking to learn and since this is a handgun forum, I'll try to stick to the subject and not let my other interests get in the way.

    Hi there and welcome. You do have an interest in a rather nice (and not overly easy to find) pistol there. When you do find one be sure to get the L-35 as the L-40s were recalled due to cracking frames.

    L-35 has a special meaning for me, it was my grandfathers companion from the winter war through the continuation war......the Swedish L-40 was not made to the same spec.....besides with the L-35, I'd have a 1 in 9000 chance of having his old pistol! Thanks for the welcome!!!
