Well, I take that back. The Mauser C96 and Luger's do have an appeal, but they are usually pretty expensive.
I do like shooting handguns more than rifles, but all of my handguns are either new semi-autos, or classic Smith revolvers (and one SAA).
I don't know what it is, but those old military handguns just seem dingy, and like I said, the rifles have class.
But maybe I need to pick one up and see for myself. Which are the best 4 or 5 to start with?
