My VFW friend, a very spry and active 94 year old WWII veteran asked my to come to his house the other day and help him with a couple of pistols. One was a 380 Browning bda nickle plated with wood grips, with only 5 rounds through it! He bought it new some time in the 70 or 80 time frame (he didn't remember). What a piece of art. Everything just felt perfect. It fit like a glove in my hand. The feel of the all metal frame, the palm swell, perfect. A far cry from today's guns. He also had a Ruger MKII 22LR pistol, new and never fired either. His pride was a 1945 Arisaka 31 cal rifle he brought back from Japan after the war. Perfect condition and still covered in some cosmoline he had applied. Nice piece of history. He just wanted to show them to me and I wanted to share it here.
