I was gifted 600 rounds of .40S&W from a couple of co-workers with indications that there may be more to come. :chili: :chili: :chili:
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Don't buy any of the Perfecta .40 Walmart was selling a few years back. I got several bad boxes and there were rampant reports of other bad runs. Every round hangs up going into the chamber.

Free is great! Just so it isn't the Perfecta stuff sold by Walmart a few years back. Every box of that I got was great except for the .40. I got six boxes and every round hangs up going into the chamber. There were rampant reports of others having the same issue with Perfecta .40.
Free ammo is great. I giggle like a school girl when a tire shop gives me their old wheel weights for free.

AIM Surplus up the road had some heavy barrelled S&W 64-3's and -6's in stock. They were European law enforcement guns and look to be in decent shape. I'm half tempted to get a -6. Thoughts?

That is a BEAUTIFUL pistol!
The 41 is a bucket list gun for me...till then I have a Ruger MK II Bull Target for Necco fighting :)

We all know it is a solid gun and they do look to be in pretty good shape. I just think the price is a bit high but to undercut it you would really need to watch the classifieds and pawn shops and be ready to strike when you found the right deal. That said it is a fair price and you shouldn't lose sleep on the purchase.

I've decided to pass. I'd rather have something in the K frame chambered for .357 magnum. It makes more sense to me to have the option.

AK's are a facinating family of firearms to study. I have been rebuilding demilled foreign parts kits for a couple years now and this 1983 Yugo M72B1 RPK is one of my favorites. She was probably never issued before being cut up.
Some would say the torch is exactly what these former machine guns, meant only to kill, deserve. I enjoy giving them a second life as a rifle meant only for a relaxing day at the rage. Studying how each country tweaked the Kalashnikov rifle can be loads of fun too Image
