Ok now to tell terrible secrets. This will probably get me kicked off of TFL but here goes.
In my earlier/stupid/dumb/nitwit/confused/lost/brainless days (26 at the time) I had a 5 inch 27.
A friend had a Luger, I traded for the luger.
The 27 was build in the 60’s and was excellent condition. The luger well to start off the bore was pitted and it got worse from there.
But by god I had to have that luger.
I will regret that day for the remainder of my life, buy the 27 or you will too.
