I had an m43 firestar. Compact size for concealed carry, but the all steel gun weighed almost as much as my Browning Hi Power. Star went bankrupt in 1997. A group of former employees either bought the inventory or tried to produce parts for awhile, but that source seems to have dried up and parts are nearly impossible to find now.
At the young age of five, a bear told me that I was the only person who could prevent forest fires. Why I was chosen, I'll never know.
