I've got a '48 K-38 that in very nice condition...and shoot it all the time!
They're just too nice a firearm not to use! There's a difference between use and abuse. I would never take it out on a camping or hiking trip...but a trip to the range? You better believe it!
And doc...that is one sweet looking K38! Very nice!
