These pistols are as rare as hen's teeth, and I got a great deal on it! Should be taking delivery by the weekend! "

Kilowatt3 created the thread Latest Gun Show Find - .22 LR Dan Wesson!.
" Dropped by the Lafayette, LA Gun Show this morning. I had a little "brass in pocket", and sorta thought I might come home with either a Lightweight Commander, a .44 Special GP100, or maybe a .45ACP/LC Redhawk. Instead, I stumbled across a nice ol' Dan Wesson in .22 LR!

Attachment 21880

I'm not even sure I've ever seen a DW .22 in person! The action seems perfect, bore looks good, the finish has only a few very tiny imperfections, and the price was WAY lower than I ever expected to find one! It came with the .22 barrel wrench. I believe it's a Model 15-2, but I'm not really sure. Monson manufacture puts it as pre-1990, but it has a low, 4-digit Serial # that I believe indicates much earlier.

It's fitted with Pachmyr rubber grips, which I'm not sure are original from the factory or not. The finish really caught my eye - so nice I first thought it might have been refinished, but I see no signs of buffing-wear on the roll marks or anything. It's still possible it's a refinish job, but if so, it sure is a good one! In any case, I believe it's a worthy addition to my DW stable.

Looking forward to getting out & doing a little plinking with it! "

Kilowatt3 created the thread Anyone Have a P210?.
" Hi All,

Just wondering if any forum members have a Sig P210? I've long been kind of fascinated by this model, and saw a gently-used one in a LGS yesterday at a big discount off the price of a new one!

Attachment 20736

[Stock photo - not the one I saw]

This is a pistol for which I have absolutely no practical use. I do not participate in any formal competition. It's too big for practical CC, and lacks the capacity of most 9mm CCW's. For HD, I prefer a larger caliber and/or larger capacity. For hunting/varmint control, I use .22LR or .22 Mag for the small stuff, .357 or .40 for the medium stuff, and .44 Mag for the big stuff. No real place for a 9mm.

The P210 just kinda calls out to me, though! The slide-inside-the-frame design is interesting, the fit-n-finish is superb, it has a great feel to it, and well, I just find it a really cool pistol! I've never had a real "target" pistol. FWIW, this is a U.S.-made one.

Anyone have one, or experience with one, and care to share your thoughts? "

Kilowatt3 created the thread P365 #2!.
" Out for a leisurely drive this morning, I stopped into a local grocery/hardware in a neighboring small town, and browsed their gun counter. To my surprise, I saw a P365 at the lowest price I've seen for one yet!

Well, PDF regulars will note I've been singing the praises of my P365 ever since I got it in October. I like it so much, in fact, that I just brought its twin brother home! I don't have many pairs of identical guns, but the P365 is such a sweet little shooter, and a tremendously 'practical' CCW, I couldn't walk away from this one at a sub-$500 price! The fact I just got a nice bonus at work was a contributing factor! Build date was just a couple weeks ago.

If it stops raining between now & Sunday, I'll hopefully offer up a range report! "
