    Does the term GP signify belgium manufacture? Or is it the more proper shorthand for the hi-power?

    My carry gun. H&K mod 4 in 32acp. Accurate, light and reliable.

    I just found my reciept, and my Henry .22 lever was $254 at Wal-Mart.

    This one did not come from Wal-Mart,....

    It is a great shooter, but the round is rather anemic for self defense. The Marlin Camp Carbine in 45 ACP is a hoot-ta-shoot.

    Love the levers.

    I like the old .22 pumpers as well.

    Can't go wrong with Browning rifles. Especially their Semi-automatics. I've shot a couple 300 Magnums, awesome rifle and certainly powerful enough to hunt anything and I mean anything.

    Sig Sauers are my second most favorite semi automatic pistol (My favorites are H&Ks). Sig's make excellent pistols.

    Oooh, I bet you can find the Waffen Ampt on that 42 dated P38. What sort of grips are on her?

    Holstered, or do you pocket carry?

    I like them just because they're so smooth.

    If you holster it, can you post up a pic of it?

    Do any of y'all have a Walther P5? I have wanted one for some time, but haven't found the right one yet.

    I love this one, it's the one I shoot the most, a Ruger MarkIII Hunter, it shoots like it has a heavy bull barrel, but the fluting makes it balance like a target barrel:

    I love this one too, but I shoot it a lot less, it's unpleasant to shoot and easy to carry, a S&W 340PD with a 1 7/8" barrel, it weighs 13 ounces loaded with 5 rounds of .357, this double action only scandium/titanium revolver has the highest ratio of muzzle energy to gun weight of any handgun ever made:
