I took some of my college savings and ordered one from JG. I can put the funds back for my college next year. Being 68, I figure I have plenty of time to figure out what I want to do with my life. :lol:

On a serious note, are there any resources dedicated to the P-83 as there is for the P-64?

I love mine, so big Yeah! Not as concealable as a P64, of course, and with a hammer that begs to be snagged on your clothes. I watched a YouTube video that explained the coolness of this pistol, though. It is mostly made from stampings and bendings, with very few machined parts. Apparently pretty revolutionary for its time. I'll see if I can find it again and post the link.

I want one but not on the Kalyforrnya "approved" list and not C&R eligible. :(
