I have no idea the maker of this gun, but it was a 1911 style handgun and this thing was horrible. I could shoot a single shot T/C Contender pistol faster than that handgun. Not only did it jam on every other shot and was never hitting what I was aiming at it did a horrible thing you would never want to have happen in an HD situation. The whole freaking slide and barrel assembly came off on counter-recoil. :roll: :roll:
Well now, being given something is one thing. I've accepted some pretty raunchy guns and pieces of guns in my time.
But I won't make any effort to own a 9mm pistol of any type, nor any guns with plastic frames or parts. Prefer not to own foreign made firearms, though have owned one Italian made single action. And I do have a Mauser pistol as a War souvenier.
I prefer my guns to be steel, brass and wood. And I appreciate a gun that doesn't throw my empty brass all over the countryside. And, while I do have some .357 Magnums, I prefer calibers with some authority. I do lean toward the .44 and .45 caliber guns.
I prefer blue steel over stainless. I did have one stainless Smith & Wesson.
WHOA! While the .40 Short & Wimpy has given the .40 genre a bad name, there are still some fortys worthy of attention, though one is really not considered a .40, the .38-40 revolver, especially those converted from three-screw Ruber Blackhawk .357s. And the .401 Eimer guns that were making the rounds a few years back. And the 10mm seems promising.
But a good late model Colt SA in .38-40 rivals the .41 Magnum when properly handloaded.
