    Fwiw, I was talking to my cousin by phone Saturday & he reminded me that my FIRST handgun was a ENFIELD "Commando", in .38-200/.38 S&W caliber, revolver that "someone at boarding school" ( I can't remember who) sold me. - The WWII surplus revolver in a cloth British holster, with a handful of WWII-era shells, in 1962, cost me 5 bucks.
    (Those were the days.)

    Randy says that he still has the old Enfield & keeps it in the glove compartment of his PU.

    yours, satx

    Rohm 63 22lr. revolver back in 1973. Still have it. It was still in working condition the last time it was fired circa 1981.

    I have a Gen 2 G19 that I bought used in 1996. It was my third pistol. I got it after I sold my G17, thinking I wanted something smaller for concealed carry.

    Was out shooting that G19 today.

    1st handgun I shot was a Hi-Standard Sentinel sold by Sears as a J C Higgins when I was 5. 1st handgun that I bought was a Colt Commander .45 at 16 through the mail. (My Dad signed the order form.

    Dad swapped the J C Higgins off for something, and the Commander left me during a financial shortfall.
