A new obsession

Post by rvenneman » March 13th, 2017, 1:22 am

My neighbor came to me and asked me about getting a revolver, since his auto was getting to hard to pull.
He came back a few hours later with a new revolver. I asked what he was going to do with his auto and he told me he was going to sell it. If I wanted it he told me I could have it for $75.
I looked at it and not sure what it was. It was a P-64. 1976. He bought it 20 years ago and never shot it.
I love the feel of the gun and love reading the history about it.
I am glad I found this board and look forward to picking minds.
