Show Me Your Favorite Old School Semis

Franz Stock, 7.65mm, circa 1925. Not my oldest, but one not commonly seen.


This is the oldest semiauto, from 1905.

My First handgun: acquired at age 55 in 2011.
WW2 Sauer 38H, in .32 Auto. The seller told me that "My uncle took it from a German nurse". Far more plausible than many WW2 German handgun stories.....
Still have it.












S&W 908 (9x19 mm): a 3rd. Gen., despite using 4 digits. Nice and light, very nifty ergonomics.




The commercial German P225, from which a huge number became the P6.

With a few exceptions most of mine are 1911 Series 70 Colt:



Have a few Ruger MKII and a Ruger 2245. The 1911 guns include a .38 Super. There is also an older Interarms imported Walther PPK.

I didn't know this was a Classic12 showoff thread. That's gotta be one of the largest P210 collections outside some museum. Well done.

Thanks, but it’s all relative. I just met a guy who has about 200 Sig P210

I need to visit his museum … err house
